After Game of Thrones I threw myself into a lot of television to fill the void. Wentworth was one of the shows that caught my eye. I had seen a lot of it but stopped watching years ago. Foxtel was airing all of it in the lead up to the newest season start date so Adam and I binged watched a large portion of it.
Wentworth is a reimaging of an old Australian TV show Prisoner that ran for almost 700 episodes in the late 70s to mid 80s. It kept many of the original characters, some of the story lines but updated them for a more contemporary audience. There is 100% more diversity than the original. Sigrid Thornton also makes an appearance and she was in the original just in a different role.
If you are after a good Australian drama you can sink your teeth into this is it. It’ll make you laugh, cry and there are characters you can cheer on. It definatly kicks the ass of Orange is the New Black.
