After watching The Wire and The Sopranos on HBOGO the last year I'm lost without a new TV show. I decided to give Oz a shot since it has generally good reviews and I enjoy HBO series.
I'm 2.5 episodes in and it just isn't grabbing me. The concept seems really great but I keep thinking it could be done better. I loved the realism of the Wire and kind of expected it in Oz to an extent. Immediately some of the plot devices just seem so ridiculous and far-fetched. I don't necessarily think it's bad so far but I'm feeling a little underwhelmed.
Should I stick with it/does the series get any better? General consensus seems to be that the first few seasons are good and then it falls off a cliff.
I was ok with it while I was watching it as it happened, even though they clearly got way too outrageous. And it doesn't hold up at all, I tried watching it again a few years ago and lost the nostalgia bug before I finished season 2.
