Show Summary

Oz is the name on the street for the Oswald State Penitentiary. Our wheelchair-bound narrator Augustus Hill (Harold Perrineau Jr.) takes us through the wacky world of Emerald City, the experimental unit started by Tim McManus (Terry Kinney). There's shankin' and lovin' and cussin' and fightin' but in the end, HBO makes a damn fine prison drama. It's gritty. And there you have it.

    The 6 seasons that OZ did were great & the way they ended the series was almost like a Cliffhanger the cyanide chemicals were released & the whole jail was evacuated & they just left! ! That's not fair HBO why do that 2 your loyal fans!!!

    "BRING BACK OZ"
  • That show makes me so scared of prison

    10
    I would be so frightened if I were to go to prison after seeing this the prison itself and the people in it makes the inmates go even more with beechers son.....
  • I dont want to go to prison

    10
    With epic violence, brutal murders and storys that keep you wanting more. Oz would put the fear of God in anyone when thinking of prison.
  • More than a decade later - still outstanding

    10
    Gritty, dirty, unique, well acted, superbly written - one of the greatest TV shows ever. The atmosphere is dark, realistic but also weirdly surreal. It grabs you and hold in its world of violence, survival and deep human insticts and emotions. OZ is simply amazing.
