COMPLETELY wrong casting slightly hurts an already seriously wounded lame duck
5 October 2015 | by (Canada North) – See all my reviews

It's VERY difficult to believe that this lame duck lasted even 1 season...never mind 2. The lead actress has all the skill of a first year acting school graduate...her scared,surprised,shocked or amazed looks being exactly the same and looking somewhat like a cross between a Deer caught in the headlights and a petulant 5 year old. The plots are seriously amateur with so many ridiculous situations that one has to wonder why ANY of the inmates are still there. Let's start with the first move in the show.....a junior member of an all woman's institute is 'BUMPED' up....promotion wise, to the governor of a LARGE male-only prison...complete with lots of dangerous convicts. If this sounds just a tiny bit unlikely...stay tuned....it gets even more implausible. Some of the situations are so see-through that anyone could predict the most likely next scene with almost no difficulty. Leave this loser on the shelf and join me in wondering how on earth it scored so high.
