I did not care for the main character which made it hard to be sympathetic to his plight.

Suzanne - My answer to your question is that most criminals are to some degree irrational and therefore a great many defy analysis. I never watched Criminal Minds (but for a couple episodes since it looked crappy) despite its choice name, yet the subject is made for television.

It ended well enough I suppose, but I really wish they would hurry up and announce the fate of this show. I thoroughly enjoyed most episodes.

Just a general thought: I have absolutely no contact with the prison system or anyone in it so I have no real knowledge. That said I have oftened wonder how tptb don't find it odd if a prisoner, after years of incarceration, refuses to state their guilt in order to get parole. Wouldn't only truly innocent people maintain that level of pride when they could go free?

Being that I worked a prison @ one time, it’s hard for me to just sit back & watch some of B. S. that goes on in this show. My wife likes it so I’m stuck watching it with her. She hasn’t got sick of me pointing out why this wouldn’t happen. Like his burner phone for one.....but who knows.....different State, different type of security type. Maximum security/ Medium security.....

@Couchpotato The show IS NOT based on ANY story In fact they show a disclaimer EVERY episode that they events portrayed are entirely fictitious. The only part of the story that’s true is that he became a lawyer from prison and he eventually proved his own innocence but under completely different circumstances than the show.

So far so good. Has potential, just as long as they don’t make into a prisoner Perry Mason where every trial gets solved at last minute in a neat little bow.

I love this show. Growing up I was never exposed to the unfairness of the racial discrimination I didn't grow up in a bubble I was just sheltered by my dad who grew up in the south and saw it first hand, and when I got into high school and saw the issues going on I wanted to be a human rights lawyer. I really wish I had continued with my dream and not gone into healthcare, lawyers like this are needed more than ever now.

If it were not based on a true story, I might lose interest. But to see how corrupt the system and people involved in wrongfully convicting Isaac Wright is interesting to say the least. What makes the show more intriguing is the fact that Isaac Wright went on to become a lawyer that successfully defended inmates and expose the corruption behind his own conviction. That alone merits my interest. Stay tuned.
