Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
HBO's intense and often harrowing series about life in a maximum-security prison moves into a new phase as Season 3 opens. Oswald State Correctional Facility's Warden Flynn (Ernie Hudson) has his hands full trying to adjust to new staff members whose philosophies differ from his. Squabbles over procedure don't make life any easier for Tim McManus (Terry Kinney), administrator of Cell Block Five -- a.k.a. the Emerald City -- where some of the toughest cons are housed. As always, subplots involving individual prisoners dominate the eight installments comprising the third season, which is another showcase of terrific acting. In the summer leading into his debut on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Christopher Meloni's Chris Keller character really stands out. Another Law & Order lead, Criminal Intent's Kathryn Erbe, paints a convincing and not altogether unsympathetic portrait of convicted murderer Shirley Bellinger, scheduled for execution and confined in Oz because the women's prisons don't have a Death Row. Also memorable in their recurring roles are Tom Mardirosian, Luiz Guzman, and Chuck Zito, the former Hell's Angel, bodyguard, and stuntman. Series creator Tom Fontana, overseeing a large ensemble cast and interweaving plots, deserves the lion's share of credit for maintaining such a high level of quality: Each episode is crafted with as much care as you'd expect to see lavished on a feature film, and several are directed by familiar in-front-of-the-camera names. Matt Dillon directs "Napoleon's Boney Parts," for instance, and Chazz Palminteri is behind the camera for "Unnatural Disasters," an experience he recounts together with Fontana in a full-length commentary that accompanies the episode on this DVD.
