Critic Reviews for Oz: Season 3

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

The makers of this series have little interest in good unless it's about to be soiled. Not for the squeamish, Oz is a soap opera set in hell.

Clearly Oz is not for everyone. In fact, it's probably not for most viewers. Frequently I find myself wincing at the brutal depictions, but I keep tuning in because the characters are engaging.

What I always loved the most about Oz was how often I was surprised and shocked by the events in nearly every episode... The third season doesn't disappoint in that regard.

June 18, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Oz remains full of treachery, terror and sudden moments of quixotic tenderness. No one could be blamed for wanting to hide behind the couch until it's over, but those who do watch are likely to find themselves gripped, buzzed and spellbound.

It is a soap opera set in a land we never, never want to visit but that nonetheless is not that foreign because it lies just around the big and little corners that get cut every day.
