Well made prison show
18 September 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It was a bit of a slow start for me, but as the series went on, I really got into it - well made in a non-American kind of way (i.e., realistic and not over the top). Characters one comes to know and sometimes like, sometimes despise and an impressive portrayal of the dreariness of prison life - and also getting the point across that quite a percentage of inmates probably suffer from mental illness. Not a fun show but worth watching!!
