If any of you, like me, were hooked on the 80s Australian womens prison series called Prisoner cell block H, this is a new remake of it, with the first episode showing on channel 5 last thursday. I found it a good watch, and although the characters were the same as the previous series, it was a lot slicker, darker, and more professional. I'll probably keep up to date with this one.

I heard about this and remember the original well.

I couldn't bring myself to watch it though I prefer to keep my "fond" memories of the original  ::)

Due to your original post and remembering the original show i have quite by accident set the series to be recorded and not just an early sample. Just realised that when i saw my tv 'planner' chocca with these. I haven't watched any but will give it a go and good to know if i get into it i don't have to wait a week.. i can just pig out  :)

Have you watched any of it mate? Great end to series 1, and now looking forward to the next one.

No not yet. Fell asleep during the first but luckily had it recording anyway as i didn't expect to be even home then. I'll get into them in due course and will let you know.

Good start, continuing where it left off.

Series 3 building up to a gripping climax.

Still with this - maybe a couple of episodes behind - good stuff, but maybe starting to run out of new ideas...

Suppose there's not that much that can go in in prison compared to the outside world though mate. Been impressed with how all 3 series have built up towards a gripping ending though.

It's back this Tuesday, series 5. Best show on the telly, but Bea Smith will be a huge miss.
