This Australian series has, after 692 episodes, received cult status all over the world. The series takes place in Wentworth, a prison in Australia. Wentworth is a high-security female prison. The women are there for all sorts of crimes. We get to follow how they got there, their life in the prison and what becomes of them afterwards. We also get to follow the staff, their work in the prison and their personal relationships. Written by
A 1984 storyline featuring Vivean Gray as Edna Pearson, a (possible) poisoner, was heavily cut in both Australian and overseas airings following its initial transmission. This was because Grundy was threatened with legal action by Emily Perry, an Australian woman who had been similarly - and recently - imprisoned in reality. The storyline was finally broadcast uncut in Malta in March 2000. It was released (almost) uncut on DVD in the United Kingdom in 2010, as a "stand alone" release besides the ongoing release of chronological episodes. See more »

This is certainly the best prison show ever, and probably the best soap opera/melodrama ever, too. It's humor and lack of pretension make it 100 times better than "Oz" will ever be. Of course, setting it in a women's prison gave the creators a lot more freedom in dealing with characters. We have fewer preconceptions so they couldn't rely on stereotypes like they do on "Oz". It would be neat, in a way, if they could have Vera (aka Vinegar Tits) guest star as a guard on Oz. She'd straighten that place up in short order! Somebody please bring this back to American TV!!
