This was my favorite show for the longest time... always had a soft spot for Beecher. Love how he eventually went pretty badass.

Ryan 0'Reily was great too... he was always ****ing around, scheming.

Ryan O'Reilly >> all others. Love that show, I can't believe the actor who played Ryan is now on those dumb commercials and never made it as a mid-sized actor. He's a great actor and seems to have a look suited as a villain in some of today's movies.

Dennis Duffy was in OZ?

One word: Coffee.

One problem: Where do you get it?

At my vending machine in the basemnt of the YMCA. You just have to ask Alex for the key, and plug it in, put in a quarter, and bam.

I'll pick out one point here, but you really think Ryan O'Reilly was more evil than Vernon Schillinger? Ryan was definitely way more manipulative, and he was definitely a *****, but he had some good in him. Vernon was the biggest ******* to ever be portrayed on TV. Just the first episode blew my mind; when he made Tobias Beecher switch to his cell for some good old fashion ****** you knew right away that this guy was ****ed up big time.

Anyway, I think I'm going to have to re-watch all of Oz because it was so good but I watched it all in a span of a month because I started watching it after the show ended, so I forget a lot of the details and characters. A show like Lost, for example, I watched from the beginning so I had a lot of time to think about it and analyze the situations and characters, rather than a full on Blitz like Oz.

Yeah, Ryan being the "most evil" is total crap.

Dude loved his brother, had a code and the last season or so was about redeeming him. Vern and Adebisi were just pure evil.

This hurts my head.

Ryan O'Reilly (not the Av) was one of the greatest TV characters of all time, and you know the actor better for the bit part he played in 30 Rock....

I loved the show (just watched disc 1 of Season 1), but my mind is blown every time I see Schillinger and O'Reilly trying to sell me car insurance.

Have you seen Juno? Vern is all loving, and caring. To this day I'm sure I've only seen a cut version of Juno, where all the parts where Vern *****, has people killed and little kids hands mutilated are cut off.

Fort the first few seasons, it's arguably my favorite drama show. But I think the last few seasons are absolutely dreadful.

Ryan O'Reilly is clearly the best character in the shows history, but Adebisi is great. I feel he was the best actor on the show.

Still my favorite HBO show, hands down, easily placing it in the running for favorite, period.


I'll try and come back and do this whole list but Ryan, Adebisi, Vern, and Beecher could all be in contention for best characters from a TV series (I know Beecher is a weird choice, maybe but his transformation over the course of the show is insane. And I love Lee Tergeson).

Lotta dongs on the show... Lotta dongs

I have all of the seasons on disc and yeah, the last season was horrible and the last few were pretty bad.

It started out very realistic and documentary style but they sorta lost me when they brought in crap like a drug that age's the inmates the inmates 20 years in a matter of days and start testing it on the volunteers.

Some really great acting and writing though, fantastic characters. Even Vern wasn't necessarily evil, he just did evil things. Deep down his heart was in the right place.

At the start all of the characters were well written but towards the middle and end, the characters flipped back and forth a bit too much, to serve what the writers wanted to write about not necessarily good character development.

And J.K. Simmons does insurance ads as well. First time I ever saw him was on Oz, so I always think he'll play an evil character even though everything I've seen him in recently has been completely benign.

Best flashbacks?

El Cid's crime, Antonio Nappa's crime (so ruthless), Mondo Brown's crime, Wolfgang Cutler's crime (beheading by motorcycle...so cool).

Best deaths?

Eli Zabitz's heart attack (funniest death in the show ever), Timmy Kirk (death by stage lighting), Patrick Keenan (O'Reilly showing his nasty side and doing his own dirty work), Supreme Allah (definitely the grossest death in Oz).

Most evil characters?

Vern Shillinger, Chris Keller, Yuriy Kosygin, Governor Devlin.

Best actors?

Eric Roberts (Richard L'Italien...even though all I could think of was "Eat Eric Roberts!" whenever he was on), Lee Tergesen (Oz really was Toby's show when all's said and done), Chris Meloni (thought he showed great depth of character with Keller), Eamonn Walker (Said had a great arc).

Best non-inmate characters?

Whittlesey and Doctor Faraj, mainly because they were smart enough to get the hell out of there.

Greatest heroes?

Said, Hill, and...uh? Heroes? Oz?

Best fight scenes?

Abebisi vs Chucky Pancamo and Peter Schibetta (good one, Petey...), Italians vs Aryans rumble, Beecher vs Shillinger in the gym.

Worst actors?

Whoever did Clayton Hughes.

Most shocking scenes?

Timmy Kirk's crime flashback, Beecher's kid's hand, Sipple's crucifixion.

Most irritating characters?

Omar White, Clayton Hughes, Clare Howell (GOD I hated her...), Vern's idiot kids, Kenny Wangler (Bricks! It's Bricks! That Kenny Wangler **** is dead!).

Best seasons?

1, 2.

Scariest characters?

Yuriy Kosygin, Vern Shillinger, Adebisi, Burr Redding (Tug Daniel's death was chilling).

Saddest scenes?

Beecher's kid's funeral, Shirley Bellinger's execution, Warden Glynn's death, Augustus Hill's death.

Coolest characters?

Supreme Allah, Ryan O'Reilly, Nino Schibetta, Donald Groves.
Oz is still my all-time favourite show. Have all the seasons on dvd. For me and my wife, it used to be "Our Show". Friday nights at ten haven't been the same since.

Limiting it to like 3 or 4 questions like favorite character might have garnered more discussion IMO.

IMO hands down scariest characters & most evil were Adebisi & Schillinger. (maybe add in Yuri Kosygin but he was only on a couple episodess).

Best actors were JK Simmons & Chris Meloni.

Thanks to HBOGO, I was able to go through this entire series. Some of the storylines were ridiculous, but a great cast. Inmates were always far more entertaining.


Best characters? Schillinger, Ryan 'Reilly, Augustus Hill (loved the narration/monologues)

Best deaths?Schibetta eating glass, Adebisi, Metzger the Nazi prison guard

Most evil characters? Adebisi (just a lunatic for most of the series), the female executee,

Best actors? Meloni, Adebisi

Best non-inmate characters? Peter Marie and Wong as the priest, Querns, McManus

Greatest heroes?

Best fight scenes? Riot was pretty awesome

Worst actors?

Most irritating characters? Omar, Dr Nathan, Claire Howell (although her repenting to the priest was pretty hilarious)

Scariest characters? Adebisi

Saddest scenes? Hill dying, Cal, err Cyril OReilly dying

Coolest characters? Hill, ROR
