would recommend to everyone
26 June 2014 | by (Los Angeles, CA) – See all my reviews

This show is set in a womens prison in Australia, and tells the stories of the women who are in there. brilliant characters, from the intimidating and brave Frankie to quiet and dangerous Bea, and each one has their own story to tell. not only are there the women themselves, but great characters who are prison guards etc. as well from the lovable Vera to the strong minded Erica. Also uses violence and sex well, not over the top but keeps you excited for more. Bea is a worried mom who cares nothing more then for her daughters safety. a really great character and very well played. other characters to watch out for are Frankie, Jacs, Liz, Doreen, Vera, will, Erica, and Debbie. they are all very unique character but are played perfectly. exciting, thrilling at times, unique are words i would use to describe it. i would recommend it to anyone.
