A brilliant prequel to the fantastic series Prisoner Cell Block H. The focus of this series is basically how the young, innocent and abused Bea Smith becomes the infamous 'Top Dog' and Prison Officer "Vera 'Vinegar Tits' Bennett becomes the nasty biatch we all know and love from the original series. While the main focus is on telling the story of Bea Smith and Vera Bennett, each episode tells a different story about how the additional prisoners became imprisoned.
If you loved Prisoner Cell Block H then you really will love this! Not only is it interesting to see how Bea and Vera become the infamous characters we love, the acting and stories is just fantastic. While this is a prequel it also stands proud in it's own right as a fantastic and powerful Australian drama. I definitely can't wait for season 2 to come to the UK!!
To the reviewer complaining that the characters are a "complete contradiction to their original"...I don't think you understand that this is NOT A REMAKE of the original but a PREQUEL TO THE ORIGINAL! The characters are completely different because they are possibly 20 years younger than they are in the original!
If you loved Prisoner Cell Block H and you're interested in how and why the characters you loved became those people then this is ESSENTIAL viewing!
