So I never watched Oz during its original run but I just finished watching the entire run on HBO-Go and holy fuck was it a great show.

HBO really did have some amazing fucking shows in the 90's... I don't think anyone else has even come close to ensemble casts that reel me in and make me want more.

The Wire - Probably the best show in the history of TV.

Six Feet Under - Amazing show and in my opinion the single best "final episode" ever ever ever.

The Sopranos - While it didn't end as strong as it started, the first season was almost perfect and if the show had ended after the fourth season probably would challenge the wire for the best show all around.

Sex & The City - The movies sucked, and it was completly geared towards chicks, but the first few seasons are much better than any other chick oriented show before or after.




I really wish there was info on what happened to the prisoners that survived to oz's finale.

I would love it if there was a mini series or even a one off episode updating us on what happened to all of them. Especially Mr. Mayhem (O'reilly)


If you haven't watched this show yet, do it. It is worth it.

I really liked Oz, even if some of the storylines were a little cringey (the age acceleration thing comes to mind). Plus you get to see miles and miles of cock.

Ryan O'Reilly is an all time classic character and Beecher, Schillinger, whatever Christopher Meloni's character's name was were all great.

Agreed! I've watched every season 3 times. One of the HBO's shows it all the time. It's one of my favorite shows of all time.

Are there any other great shows like this I am missing?

I love being able to watch several seasons of a show in a row :)

Using HBO Go to watch a bunch of shows I missed. Right now watching Band of Brothers. Next up The Wire, then Oz.

The show ruins actors that show up in other roles, I was never able to watch Schillinger as a child psychologist on Law and Order and not think Nazi man-ass raper

I don't care how many Law and Orders or Losts or Allstate commercials you make, when you shit in a guy's mouth on television, you will forever be Beecher to me. Wait... I mean... it was actually the other guy who... Ah, fuck it. You know what I'm saying.

Oz was great, The Wire is over rated its like The Who of TV shows. I started watching Six Feet Under but lost interest very fast when Dexter was making love to a cop. True Blood is a good one that you didn't mention, its no Angel but a good vampire show.

Yeah, the wire is overrated. Real overrated, So overrated that they didn't win any awards for it. You must be too stupid to figure out what is going on the show. Keep watching shitty Angel and Celebrity Apprentice, and Oz is super unrealistic.

Stuff like that turns me away from ever watching 6 feet under and OZ. I'm not interested in seeing the whole man on man thing even as a goof, its creepy.

I tried to watch downton abbey and they had these two guys making out in the first episode for so long that I couldn't finish it, it was great till that part.

Of all the shows currently on HBO, you choose True Blood as its representative?

"Oz" is one of the very few HBO shows that I've never seen an episode of. It was always somewhat hard to find on Torrents, and I just never got around to it.

Carnivàle and Six Feet Under are the only other ones I think I've missed.

True Blood had a great first season, but The show went to shit after that. Seriously, I couldn't even finish watching the last season it was so bad.

There is very little mn on man action in SFU compared to Oz..... And it is 100% worth sticking with it. Oh, and angel is shit... so is buffy

Stuff like that turns me away from ever watching 6 feet under and OZ. I'm not interested in seeing the whole man on man thing even as a goof, its creepy.

I tried to watch downton abbey and they had these two guys making out in the first episode for so long that I couldn't finish it, it was great till that part.
Seriously? sounds like someone isn't very secure in their sexuality....

Carnivale isn't on HBOgo.. neither is deadwood.. I will eventually watch them..

Are you on TVT? Best tracker for tv shows.

Don't be silly. It's not a loving shit in the mouth a la James Norton. It's a "Hey, you Nazi fuck - you held me down and branded a Swastika on my ass? Now look what I do to you!" shit in the mouth.

Easy now queer eye.

I'm sorry I can't get up and cheer when two men kiss each other but thats just the way I am. I don't have a tolerance for things I don't enjoy. I won't watch TV shows that annoy me or movies that are bad just for the sake of enjoying how awful they are. Suck all the dick you want, just don't do it where I am.

Don't be silly. It's not a loving shit in the mouth a la James Norton. It's a "Hey, you Nazi fuck - you held me down and branded a Swastika on my ass? Now look what I do to you!" shit in the mouth.
I'm not sure I want to see a guy get shit on. I never thought I would ever have to say that sentence.

I don't think you actually see it on camera (it's been a while), but OZ doesn't pull any punches. I actually think someone with your sensibilities about PC and shit would love it.

From what I've heard people say about the show its nothing but prison **** for an hour. I'm sure theres more to it but if a guy gets ***** every episode thats just overboard.

I'd call that a slight exaggeration. There's plenty of violent murders, drug abuse, beatings, poisonings, plotting, etc. I'd at least give it a shot if I were you.

The people who say it's nothing but prison **** for an hour are people who obsess over homosexuality that they can't see beyond that. Like this guy

It is on hbo-go

There are also magic places on the internet you could "rent" it... if you wanted TO RENT.

There are a few *****, but it isn't like they show the whole ****, most of it is off screen or just a reaction shot.

None of them are involved scenes.

There are a few man on man kisses, but again.. it isn't like they are long and drawn out.



It would be a shame not to watch a great show just becaue of that though, plus it is in context to prison life so it isn't like "brokeback mountain" or anything.

I try not to torrent TV or movies because like music it gets you caught more easily then other things

The only TV show or movie I ever had to turn off and literally walk away from because it was so over the top was Downton Abey. It just wouldn't stop, hes kissing the guys neck and licking his feet and hes doing a fucking monologue while the guys doing this. I think it had to be atleast a 3-5 minute scene, I would almost prefer the ass **** to that.
