At times brutally grounded and surreally poetic, the show uses its fictional environment as a microcosm for our society at large, showing how the divides and conflicts manifested in prison first start in the neighborhoods we live in.
With the clock ticking on the entire series and lots of characters in constant jeopardy, Fontana and his fellow writers have confounded expectations again...
Oz, so feral and explosive, is the black sheep of quality television. But who said art had to be pretty, or that the road to human understanding was paved with yellow bricks?
By the time the series was ready to say goodbye to the guards, employees and inmates of Em City, however, it had already starting skirting the absurd - and its finale was a deep dive into straight-up camp.
To the extent that the show ever transcends its own lurid nature, it does so through the strength - and vulnerability - of its cast.
Every time Beecher thinks he's out, Oz pulls him back in. For the show's die-hard fans, that's a pleasingly familiar feeling.
Yet, no matter how graphic Game of Thrones may be, no show can rival the brutality in Tom Fontana's prison drama, Oz.
As uneven a show as Oz could be, it's undeniably one of the most important and influential shows in the past 25 years of television.
Viewers can consider themselves blessed to have had six years inside Oz.
