A British OZ
14 April 2004 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

Apologies if the above summary is somewhat inaccurate but it`s the only real way that I can think of describing this sometimes bizarre series that seems to have been totally ignored at the time of broadcast and seems totally forgotten about a year after transmission

BURIED is set in a British prison and stars Lennie James as Lee Kingley a man who is doing several years in prison for protecting a family member from a violent thug . Kingley is probably the main character of the series but like the American prison drama OZ there`s no real overwhelming " main character " the show revolves around since both Lee and the other characters can be sidelined for much of an episode . This possibly is the main flaw with the show - It fails to focuss enough on a main character

Certainly BURIED doesn`t suffer from an over developed sensationalist nature that OZ sometimes suffers from and is certainly pretty realistic . However this does mean it`s sometimes uninteresting compared to the HBO prison drama , and by far the best plot line featured the old prison cliche of unwanted sexual attention , a teenage car thief arrives and one of the old lags takes a shine to him , invites him into his cell and forces the newbie to touch him . As I said it`s pure cliche with sexualt assault on prisoners by other prisoners being very uncommon in British prisons ( I`ve been in prison myself ) though from what I`ve read it`s distressingly common in the American penal system

A fairly realistic drama which has a shockingly downbeat conclusion . It`s certainly not the definative prison drama , or even the definative British prison drama ( That would be SCUM ) but it certainly didn`t deserve to be ignored by the critics
