Prison-based Films/TV Shows
 
9 Attachment(s)
It's time for another featured Topic Of The Week :woot:

We all love Prisoner: Cell Block H but what other Prison-based TV shows or movies are you a fan of?

Perhaps you like Prison Break or he classic comedy Porridge? (Personally I'm more of a Open All Hours guy). Or what about the equally classic sci-fi The Prisoner? "I am not a number! I am a free maaaan!" Cue Iron Maiden :rockon:

What about films? Anyone seen the brilliant horror film, Prison with Viggo Mortensen? It's brilliant and is a true overlooked gem (highly recommened it!)

Perhaps you're a bit of an expert of those naughty Women In Prison films such as The Big Doll House or Caged Heat?

The Great Escape anyone?

Am I the only one who thinks Shawshank is a load of boring rubbish and that The Green Mile is a bizillion times better?

What's your fav/worse prison set show or movie? Share your thoughts here! :)

I enjoyed the first two series of "Oz". But I rarely have the patience to watch more than two series of anything no matter how good.

"The Prisoner" is probably the greatest TV show ever made. Just got the Blu-ray set for my birthday. Thankfully, I do not associate it with the awful Iron Maiden!

Is that the one from the '80s, where they find the guy in the cell with the steel bars going through him?

:cool:That's the one that I'm thinking of. I remember this made a great double bill with Wes Craven's Shocker.

EMANUELLE IN PRISON (aka BLADE VIOLENT/ WOMEN'S PRISON MASSACRE/ EMANUELLE ESCAPES FROM HELL) is my all time favourite prison movie. I luv it!

Of course, Bad Girls.

It's a shame that it was axed when it was - it would've been interesting to see where the long-serving characters like the Julies and Sylvia Hollamby went. On the whole, it was a very well written and acted show with some highly memorable and gripping plot lines - similar to Prisoner in many aspects.
