    Oz has a 92% on RT and 70+ on metacritic.

     

    Really well written, lgbtq front and center and has great performances.  Yet barley any love, especially from the emmys.

     

    Thoughts?

    A little bit of Magic never hurt anybody.

    First 1 hour show from HBO, which probably came with some bias and then was totally overshadowed by The Sopranos.

    Still a good show tho.

    Emmy winner Matthew Macfadyen!!

    HBO was in its earlier phase of awards prestige at that point in time, “Oz”‘s content wasn’t exactly Emmy-friendly, and then “The Sopranos” came along and overshadowed/obliterated it. That’s why.

    Anti-HBO/cable bias, not an overwhelming critically or audience hit, too graphically violent, too Black, overshadow by Sopranos.

    Deserved better.

    Too disturbing for the voters, and I think it took a higher-caliber show (Sopranos) to break through and make it ‘OK’ for HBO to win.
