post your favourite scene/character. spoilers etc
absolutely loved oz but gave up on it when they did the "ageing pills" storyline
think the thing that annoyed me most was when the characters would change their behaviour to suit the storyline (McManus was one of the worst for this, gullible bleeding-heart liberal one minute, hardass the next)
i also hugely enjoyed trying to predict which character from the wire would show up in it next as i only watched oz a few years ago
Avon turns up for literally 5 minutes and is never seen again.
"GIVE MEEEE SOME TIIIIIIITSSS!!!"
The execution of Shirley Bellinger really got to me. The way she managed to stay calm and accepting of her fate until seconds before the very end...chilling.
Can't remember which characters, but I tuned in inadvertently at 2am or whenever C4 used to show it to be greeted with the sight of someone demanding, "suck my dick, bitch" then having their foreskin bitten off. Pretty much set the tone for the rest of the series at least.
And some terrible over-the-top melodramatic ones.
I hated the way Beecher and Schillinger were effectively protected from dying because they were protagonists. So they spend the whole show doing horrible things to each other, but not actually killing each other. Meanwhile Schillinger and the neo-Nazis can kill dozens of people, but not this one nerdy lawyer dude with no friends other than a nun.
