Critic Reviews for Wentworth Season 1

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

An absolute belter, featuring a cast of fabulously strong, variably humane female characters.

A gritty drama and mystery series rolled into one, Wentworth is just as good, if not better, than any of the big-name American cable dramas that have broken new ground in recent years.

They say good girls go to heaven and bad girls go everywhere. If they are really very bad - or perhaps just unlucky - they may find themselves banged up in Wentworth Prison.

We'd happily forgive these bewildering leaps of narrative faith if the show was as much daft fun as its predecessor.

What dazzled me about the show, though, was how capably it holds its characters in human regard. We see these characters behave abominably, dangerously, hurtfully.
