Trivia

Harold Perrineau's character, Augustus Hill, was also the narrator of the show. But Perrineau was unable to appear in this episode because he was working on The Matrix Reloaded (2003). Musical numbers performed by the cast members were used instead of his usual narrations. See more »

Oz goes musical
8 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

One may already be tired of Said's up and downs. It's the second time he is directly questioned about his actions by his fellow followers. Is he really the right one to lead them? His actions speak for themselves; he loses control, he takes rash decisions, he beats people up and he questions his faith.

An illiterate Aryan gets checked by a black doctor he was taught to hate. The good thing is the doctor is smart and knows what sarcasm is. Furthermore, he teaches the viewers a couple of things about Hitler. For instance, Hitler's mother is assumed to have died while in the care of a Jewish woman. Or, the fact that Hitler is rumored to have had a trace of Jewish blood flowing in his veins.

Sister Peter Marie proves once again how smart she really is when she counsels Cyril on how to behave in court. The ultimate purpose is, of course, to get him out of the death row charge, while disregarding the means.

Finally, the episode will be remembered for two things: 1) Augustus is not in it, no more noteworthy quotes from his side and 2) the Oz characters' singing. The episode sure gets a plus point for 2). Seeing father Mukada and, even funnier, Beecher and Schillinger together doing a musical scene that is somehow going with the tone of the episode is just awesome.
