OK...I never saw the first season. And I think I only saw an ep or two of #2.

But, what has been the show's worst storyline?


"Supernatural" Cloutier - I think the writers realized it was a stinker and just dropped it, having him disappear into fat air.

The aging drug - to knock years off of prisoners' sentences and thus reduce overcrowding, they introduce a drug that articially ages the inmates. Yeah, right.

Housing those Chinese refugees in a maximum security prison, out in the open...


Can't remember any others right now...

William Jiles solving the murder of Peter Marie's husband from 30 years ago was pretty brutal. Rebadow is generally involved in some real stinkers, and that doesn't seem to be changing with this whole new librarian thing.

Oz is better than the WWE in that they'll just drop a bad storyline instead of driving it into the ground (see Dawn marie and Torrie).

Anything supernatural or in the realm of fantasy generally gets a big thumbs down. They've done about one a season forever (the first was Rebadow's whole "talking to God" thing that he hasn't done in a while) and they always suck.

As much as how cool thought Hoyt killing Timmy Kirk with the camera equipment was, it seemed like a far-fetched idea. Having Death Row prisoners in a photo-shoot for Maxim. Supernatural Cloutier takes the award, though.

Was it last season where they had the chinese immigrants AND the aging drug storylines going at the SAME TIME. That was very brutal to try to watch.

I'll vote for the Chinese Immigrants and the aging pill too. I don't care what state in OZ is supposed to be in, you mean to tell me the only place for refugees is a prison? Even an average size county has ONE school with a gymasium.

OK, the governor taking out a hit on the mayor is now my #1 most ridiculous storyline.

The supernatural stuff I can handle. The non-supernatural stuff that's just ridiculous is a different story.

For instance, that chick who wants to marry Busmalis. That's another good example.

Wait a sec. We don't really know for a fact that it was Devlin who had the mayor killed, do we?


I thought they hinted at it, but also implied that it could have been Vernie or Beecher that was behind the attack.


All three of them seemed to show no reaction when they heard the news...

What can I say? The 3 main offenders have been cited by everyone so far (aging drug, Cloutier, & the Chinese refugees, though that one was explained about as well as possible), and for the most part I dont hate any Oz storylines, but I sure as hell get annoyed by some of them, the most recent being Brass stealing Rebadow's lottery winnings. Not because of how it was done, but because Brass is back on the job hunting down his ankle slasher like nothing ever happened. McManus and Murphy both knew he tried to take the money and run, but they're both acting like nothing happened... I know its not so much a story line thing as a character issue but still, it rubs me the wrong way. From the looks of things though Brass is gonna be the next hack to end up in the cop unit or the morgue so I guess it's cool...

Yeah, consistency is the big thing with Oz. On one hand, it's a nice change of pace from most TV, where storylines are so obvious and predictable. On the other hand "what ever happened to..." and "didn't he say a few episodes ago that..." could start 90% of the conversations about the show.

I don't mind when characters change (look at Beecher, his character progression was great), it's when they change without explanation. For instance, Timmy Kirk used to be O'Reilly's fairly regular sidekick before he became Mr. "want a blowjob?" much less Satan.

And let's nor forget Hoyt. When he came in, he was anti-Aryan, correct? Then he disappears, and fwoom, he's one of Schillinger's lackeys.

I love how they started going out of their way not to show Hoyt's stomach (which has a tattoo of a huge Jewish Star) after he started being down with the Aryans.

For dumbest storyline, I will go with Ryan getting breast cancer. There were about 1000 better ways to set up the Ryan/Gloria love thang without resorting to a bleeding nipple.

Prisoners training seeing eye dogs was another one that should have never made the cut.

While I was thinking about the worst storyline, I was reminded of some of the ways the prisoners ended up there. How about the best "flashback" to the crime? I'd start a new thread for this, but I there are already three Oz topics going...

I'd say Chris Keller. He took a hostage, shot his victim and raced off on a motorcycle before wiping out.

I really like the flashbacks of prisoners crimes. It's a nice touch.

IMO it falls into the "mid-range" category that's generally bad value for money. But if you really want a starter set of cheap stuff *now* that you can build on & replace out, that price is OK.
