Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Life begins anew at the Oswald Maximum Security Prison in season two. The dust has settled after the riot at the end of season one, and the governor has launched an investigation to determine the cause and assign blame. It quickly becomes clear, however, that a few correctional officers used the riot to settle personal vendettas, and their complicity threatens to explode in the governor's face. All of this is de rigueur at Oz, where any notion of rehabilitating prisoners has long been abandoned. Season Two features fine performances from the ensemble cast, led by Terry Kinney (as Emerald City Unit Manager Tim McManus), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (prisoner Simon Adebisi), Dean Winters (prisoner Ryan O' Reilly), plus the pre-Sopranos Edie Falco (Officer Diane Whittlesey). Creator Tom Fontana (Homicide: Life on the Street) continues to delve into the psychological traumas of incarceration and incarcerating to maximum effect. The four-DVD set features all eight episodes from the show's sophomore season, plus "The Museum of Television and Radio Seminar Series: Oz," featuring commentary by Tom Fontana, Edie Falco, Terry Kinney and Dean Winters, as well as a season three preview and a host of Easter eggs.
