Prisoner: Cell Block H - looking back at the show

Remember Queen Bea, the Freak, and, er 'Vinegar Tits'? We revisit the joys of Aussie women’s prison drama, Prisoner: Cell Block H

Britain, you sent Australia your convicts. In return, we sent you a TV show celebrating them.

Strap on your nostalgia goggles, it’s time to revisit one of the most bizarre, violent, lesbian-fetishy-heart-warming dramas ever created.

Prisoner: Cell Block H (known simply as Prisoner in Australia) was a daring, one-hour show set in Wentworth Detention Centre, a fictional women’s prison that provides the one-word title of the original show's modern-day revival. It ran for 692 episodes from February 1979 until December 1986. It hitched a ride on the coat-tails of the successful British show Within These Walls, with a notable difference. The focus of Prisoner was mostly on the inmates, not the wardens.

The opening was short and punchy - a quick recap of the previous »

Zootopia Concept Art Reveals Disney’s Majestic Animal Kingdom

4 March 2015 8:51 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Since unveiling Zootopia alongside its upcoming maritime adventure, Moana, Disney has remained awfully quiet regarding the former animation. All we know is that each film has been scheduled for a release in 2016, and that the animal-centric tale will be helmed by Tangled director Byron Howard. But today, the illustrious studio unveiled a single piece of concept art for Zootopia that draws attention to the titular city.

Orbiting around a devious fox called Nick Wilde, Howard’s anticipated feature will see the quick witted vulpini forced to go on the run after he is framed for a crime he didn’t commit. A manhunt spearheaded by the wonderfully named bunny police officer, Lt. Judy Hops, is soon drawn up, though it isn’t long before the pair find themselves unlikely allies when a conspiracy puts both of their lives at risk.

All of this will be set within a world where humans never existed, »
