    Review: Wentworth Season 5

    Wentworth season 5 or Wentworth Prison, as it is also called, came roaring back after Bea Smith’s (Danielle Cormack) murder with a season that was tighter, tenser, and hold-your-breath dangerous. I thought Wentworth would never recover its bite without Bea. I was wrong.

    Wentworth Season 4: A Second Look

    Because of the way season 4 of Wentworth ended, my original review of the season was strictly about Bea’s Journey. I’ve rewatched the entire season with a bit of emotional distance between the way the season ended and my response to the season as a whole. I realize the rest of the story and the […]

    Review: The Kettering Incident

    The Kettering Incident is an Australian series now available on Amazon Video. It’s a dark, ethereal Gothic mystery wrapped in layers of science fiction. Filmed in the small Tasmanian town of Kettering, nearby Bruny Island, and the dense forests surrounding the town, the location is beautiful, yet as eerie as the incidents. This review is […]

    Review: Wentworth Season 3

    Here’s my review of the 3rd season of Wentworth, the tense Australian  women’s prison drama. Season 3 raises the stakes. Everyone’s situation is fraught and the lunatics are in charge of the asylum. Characters turn harder and tougher and use what they know to manipulate and control. Beware the spoilers. I also reviewed seasons 1 […]

    Review: Wentworth

    Wentworth is frequently mentioned when the conversation turns to Orange is the New Black. The Australian women’s prison drama is now on Netflix. I binge watched both seasons of the show and now understand why the two shows are so often mentioned in the same breath. This review of Wentworth will tell you a little […]
