Critic Reviews for Oz Season 2

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (3)

A cast of unpleasant characters make this highly watchable.

Jun 20, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Showed characters wrestling with same-sex attraction and masculinity in increasingly revelatory ways.

Jun 18, 2018 | Full Review…

There's no question about the quality. The fear is that Oz will go overboard and drown in its pay-cable freedom to go adult.

May 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Oz is more than some nasty words and explicit scenes. The storylines, supervised by Homicide: Life on the Street's Tom Fontana, are gripping.

Jun 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Oz obliterates taboos, but it doesn't traffic in South Park-style cheap thrills. Its jolts are genuine, and it breaks new TV ground every week.

May 29, 2018 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

OZ tries too hard, but sometimes it scores a shattering bull's-eye.
