Life in America's Prisons

"This seemed like the sequel of TV's "Cops" and like that show, I wanted to see more as the credits in the last episode played. Like "Cops," areas from all over the country are shown.
This show stands out in that the producers of the show are interviewed. I am sure they are supposed to represent the everyday, Middle American viewer. However, there was a way in which I thought the prisoners and CO's could speak for themselves or the narrator's comments were sufficient. Perhaps the show's makers assumed that viewers would not relate to the events shown. However, many Americans have been to prisons or have loved ones there. I wouldn't deem prisons some never-never-world.
The work is diverse in terms of race, age, and mental ability. Only one scene showed women, but this may be due to women making up a much smaller percent of the prison population.
They blurred out nudity that I thought would be acceptable to see on a DVD in one's own home. They show the restults of shankings and that truly might disturbe some viewers.
All in all, this was entertaining. I wouldn't mind seeing more episodes."
