Oz

Everybody stateside, having seen six seasons already, would know all about HBO’s Oz. I saw it for the first time tonight, during its first screening on free–to–air television in Australia, and I liked what I saw.

As I recall, there’s a word for this kind of drama. Compelling. Fearsome. Brilliant.

Plus, Harold Perrineau Junior is the narrator… and we know how I feel about him. Now quite possibly the only excuse I have for owning a television.
