I am posting this review 6 years after the last swap review b/c this awesome show deserves an update. Each episode is very thought provoking. Scenes are realistic but not gory. I just ordered the DVD series and will post on swap when thru. Already addicted, I say this is a binge-worthy show which is still relevant today. Uptight religious folks won't appreciate some content but the narrated portions are quite compelling. The straight forward dialogue of God as a gangster (or gangsta) was intriguing! Then there is the inmate who had murdered his parents and ate mom (dad was being saved for Thanksgiving) and who then decided to go to Catholic church services in prison as he gets to "consume" Jesus. The show includes glimpses of flashbacks to the incidents which landed them in prison. Disc one offered more characters like this than the entire series of Orange is the New Black. I appreciate the fast pace to the action and the cycling of inmates thru the penal system. It was unnerving to watch the jovial insurance guts seen on tv today as nasty and devious criminals. So, hats off to Dean Winters and JK Simmons.
