Editorial Reviews

A volatile men-in-prison soap opera, fueled by testosterone and lubricated by blood, HBO's Oz is addictive viewing. The third season of the most violent show on cable TV, set in a cage of concrete and steel and glass, opens with echoes of violence past. Miguel Alvarez (Kirk Acevedo) is in solitary confinement for brutally blinding a guard, one-time drug lord Simon Adebissi (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje) mourns for his murdered father, and Tobias Beecher (Lee Tergesen) nurses bones broken by Aryan Brotherhood leader Schillinger (J.K. Simmons) and a heart broken by the betrayal of Keller (Law and Order: SVU's Christopher Meloni). Their stories of vengeance, redemption, and forgiveness anchor this season.

The show races through each episode with a driving pace that only intensifies the ferocity. But for all the show's physical brutality, the most affecting violence is emotional, from the strange and savage love affair between Beecher and Keller to the escalating war of terror between Beecher and Schillinger. On a lighter note, this season marks the debut of both Miss Sally and new prison CO Sean Murphy (Robert Clohessy), whose understated strength is too often overlooked in the face of the show's more explosive personalities. Season 3 ends pitched on a powder keg, with the fuse in the hands of the show's most ferocious, unpredictable character. It's the kind of promise that will have you slavering for season 4.

The three-disc set features all eight episodes along with a season 2 recap, episode recaps and previews, commentary on the episode "Unnatural Disasters" by writer-creator Tom Fontana and episode director Chazz Palmintieri, and 22 minutes of deleted scenes. --Sean Axmaker

5.0 out of 5 stars GROUNDBREAKING........ December 5, 2003
Finally, season 3 of OZ will be released early next year. This is by far the most fantastic tv show ever made. It's the best thing ever made.
If you're reading this, you've probably watched all seasons of OZ, or at least a few of them so I won't have to tell what it's all about. All I can say is, I'm in love with OZ. Tom Fontana is a genious, what he has created is magical, the characters are so alive and realistic, you feel for them, you start to love them no matter what crimes they've committed, you understand why they do what they do, you realize that everything they say and do is a part of survival, they have to survive in Em City, in OZ, no matter what it takes...
O'Reily, responsible for pretty much every murder in OZ, including the riot, Beecher, the extreme transformation, rivality with Schillinger and love for Chris Keller, Said, always keeping his faith, at least in this season, Hill, Rebadow, Schillinger, Adebisi, Pancamo..... I could go on and on.
My favorite characters of the inmates are Toby Beecher, Chris Keller - I find their love/hate relationship interesting. You don't have to put a label on it saying "Beecher and Keller are the two gay guys", it's far beyond that. As Tom Fontana said: "It's two men or two people struggling to find and maintain love in an environment that completely works against them." There are sad moments, good moments, Schillinger who constantly tries to get between them and destroy Beecher. And no matter what happens in Toby's and Chris's relationship, even if they're not together at the time, you know that they love each other, more than they'll ever love anybody.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great set...more please... March 27, 2004
By A Customer
I don't spring for the pay channels, so I'm one of those that missed the show's entire run and only heard how great it was. I also heard how harsh it was, so when the DVD's started coming out I was hesitant to buy them, afraid that I'd hate the show and end up stuck with the DVD's. Luckily that wasn't the case. Yeah, it's harsh. VERY. But it's also one of the best-written shows I've seen in a long time. Beats the heck out of most network junk. I just wish the 'seasons' had been longer. I didn't want them to end. There's not a lot of extras on the DVD set, but I don't really mind that.
My request to HBO: get the DVD's out FASTER. Considering that each season is only 8 episodes, it's ridiculous that people have to wait so long between releases.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oz, the best show on opinion, of course! February 17, 2004
"Oz" is the BEST show on HBO. The writing is very sophisticated, the cast is superb, and the storyline is excellent.
I only have one problem. How come HBO is releasing this DVD series slower than a snail crawls across the road. Come on, HBO, if you can release "Sex and the City" and "Sopranos" faster than I can write this review, you, the people at HBO can certainly release "Oz" DVDs a bit faster!

In the third season of Oz the place has had a name change to Oswald State Correctional Facility and things are obviously coming to a head, although what the explosion will be and the final body count is up in the air. Gov. James Devlin (Zeljko Ivanek) is not around to cause as much trouble as usual, but not for lack of trying. A managed health care company is given control of Oz's infirmary to the detriment of Migeul Alvarez (Kirk Acevedo) and the disgust of Dr. Gloria Nathan (Lauren Velez). Meanwhile, Warden Leo Glynn (Ernie Hudson) is still trying to find out who assaulted his daughter and EM City Administrator Tim McManus (Terry Kinney) has caught the fancy of new corrections officer Claire Howell (Kristin Rohde). Another new C.O. is Clayton Hughes (Seth Gilliam), the son of a Oz guard who was killed on duty and died in Glynn's arms. But of course the real story here has to do with the inmates.
As I watched the power struggle on "Oz: The Complete Third Season" I kept thinking that the machinations among the inmates was like a metaphor for international politics. Vern Schillinger (J.K. Simmons) and Tobias Beecher (Lee Tergesen) are still trying to get the better of each other, but with Cyril O'Reily (Scott Winters) still having nightmares about being raped by Schillinger, Ryan O'Reily (Dean Winters) has his own plans for revenge. Kareen Said (Eamonn Walker) proves his power in Oz when he starts a hunger fast after McManus rejects his request for food in his cell while he fasts during the holy season. But the most dangerous one of all turns out to be the inmate everybody is dismissing as crazy, Simon Adebisi (Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje), who finds a way to bring down Antonio Nappa (Mark Margolis) and is eyeing people even higher up the food chain.

4.0 out of 5 stars No offense but... January 18, 2004
By A Customer
..there were 6 seasons of Oz, only ending last year (2003). Each consisted of 8 episodes with the exception of the fourth season which was broken up in two parts and had 16 episodes in it. There were a total of 56 episodes. I'm personally glad they ended it when they did, as the plots were getting a little thinned out--they'd pretty much done all they could do with the series. What I'm not glad about is the frequency of the series being released to DVD. Every Sopranos season is already on DVD and they come out about six months after that season ends. With Oz we've had one DVD set per year for the past two years. Thankfully, they're releasing season four in November (?) I believe.
