Excellent show. Puts "Orange is the New Black" to shame.

Orange is the New Black became repetitive, at least for me, after the first season -- wound up skipping to the end of the last episode of season 2 only to see if it was finally going to resolve as it wasn't worth the time if not. Gave up on it after that, would have made a better 1 season story limited to 8 episodes. It's a Saturday-morning cartoon compared to Wentworth. Wentworth packs a lot of punch into the first episode, and from there it snowballs -- gathering more vixens and plot twists along the way. I should never have started watching at 11pm, it's so good I watched through sunrise ;-) Excellent storytelling... engaging... addictive...

Love the show! Better than Orange is the new black!

I'm not sure it's an entirely fair comparison to make between Wentworth and OITNB; sure, both are set in women's prisons but OITNB is a quirky comedy-drama of sorts while Wentworth is a more straightforward, gritty prison drama. That aside, Wentworth is easily one of the best TV dramas ever; just terrific stuff and with a brilliant cast.

Good news for those who discovered WENTWORTH when Netflix bought it to the world a few years ago. It has just begun to broadcast (19 June 2018) it's 6th season on Showcase (AU), so hopefully Netflix will bring it to us again once it has shown in Australia. This is a series definitely binge worthy. Better than ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK (in my humble opinion) and based on PRISONER, which ran on Network Ten (AU) from 1979 to 1986. I give this series an 8 (great) out of 10 and have become very attached to it's characters. [Drama and Intrigue in a Women's Prison]

I just watched the finals of the fourth season, and that was the last episode I'll watch! You killed Bea! She was THE character! We love her the most, her life, her struggle, her change of personality...her pain! I'm sorry, it was pretty good until this moment, but I can not get through this! This is just MY oppinion, and maybe it won't matter to you...but for me...I don't have a reason to watch this anymore. Doreen and Booms are annoying, Kaz and Allie are not that great and are new characters...and The Freak!! She is still alive, and that's bad enough!

Best show I’ve seen yet. If you haven’t watched it, you are missing out. Binge watched this show like crazy.

avatar

Love this show!! The Bitch(Frankie) is Back!!!

Pretty good. Can't Wait for season five.

Excellent show. I was a fan of Prisoner way back when so was a little worried about a remake, but nothing to fear this is an excellent version for a modern age.
