Editorial Reviews

Product Description

America s maximum security prisons are a world unto themselves: a realm of chaos and danger where long stretches of monotony are interrupted by explosions of sheer terror. The groundbreaking series LOCKUP: RAW goes inside the gates to get shockingly candid interviews with some of the country s most notorious criminals and the guards who are charged with trying to control them. In prisons from Alaska to Tennessee, see firsthand inmates survival strategies, the code they live by, and the perils they face. The series features previously unaired, sometimes unedited footage, of convicts who have nothing to lose.

LOCKUP: RAW also shares, for the first time, what it was like for the show s producers to work behind bars: jeopardizing their own personal safety, working amid the deafening clamor of prison, and sitting face to face with unpredictable, violent felons. Each producer has a unique story to tell, and viewers will feel they are right beside them, risking their lives to get the story.

LOCKUP: RAW SEASON ONE includes 8 original episodes on 2-DVDs

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining series about Prison life October 6, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a 2-DVD set containing 8 episodes of LOCKUP:RAW with some bonus material on each disc. Lockup is a series that takes you into the Prisons and Jails and shows you the stark reality of life in the slammer.

I generally enjoy progams about prison life and Lockup does a good job of presenting the inmates and their mental/emotional state behind bars. You get to know prison terminology such as "fish"(new inmate), "pruno"(jail-made alcohol), and "shank"(sharp object).

I would have liked a few more episodes on this collection(a 3 disc set would have been better). Also, the bonus material is a bit skimpy. But otherwise this is still a great collection. Looking forward to season two.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Real Eye Opener September 20, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This documentary is so enlightening, I can't get enough. It breaks my heart though when I see the really young people commit such gruesome, and heinous crimes. Do they really not care/understand what a felony and life behind bars means? I applaud the staff, crew, and the inmates for making this show possible.

4.0 out of 5 stars for anyone interested in crime and criminal December 4, 2009
My favorite channel is A&E because of programs like American Justice , the first 48 and cold case files, if that is your cup of tea then you will really enjoy watching this show, I was real happy so see it finally released on DVD, looking forward to seeing more.
