Hi all,

Just wondering if anyone else has been watching Wentworth Prison on 5*? No one I know seems to have heard of it but I'm addicted! It's a modern day remake of Prisoner Cell Block H and it's absolutely fantastic!

Yep have watched every single series and it's amazing, so underrated here. Much better than OITNB.

Yeah, I totally agree with you there! I think Australian shows struggle to get recognition over here, which is a shame because Wentworth really is brilliantly done. It's much more realistic than OITNB and I think it's a better portrayal of a prison environment.

One of H's colleagues' daughter is starring in it! smile

I heart this programme. The season 3 finale was one of the most gripping and satisfying bits of telly I've ever seen.

Who does your H's colleague's daughter play, Boogers?

Yeah the finale is best piece of television I've seen in a long time. Couldn't wait to watch it on 5 so watched it Australian pace. Think that's why the ratings haven't been great for 5 as most of the die hard fans download the eps screened in Australia. If they screened them on the same week I think they would find the ratings would be a lot better.

It's brilliant! Tough to watch at times, but very very good.

Yes, have watched the whole lot now. Absolutely brilliant. Can't wait for series 5 next year.

Does anyone have a favourite character? I absolutely love Bea! Danielle Cormack is a fantastic actress and Bea's character development has been so exciting. Ferguson is a great character too.

I love it.

MyBeloved Tue 09-Aug-16 19:14:28

I think Ferguson is so scary she is brilliant.

I have a massive girl crush on Frankie haha!

Ooh hello! I love Wentworth, one of my favourite shows! Looking forward to tonight's episode.
My favourite character is Boomer, she's hilarious, although the scene with Maxine last week nearly made me cry sad

Love it love it love it!!! Love all the characters and Bernard Curry is in this series. Loved him from Neighbours when I was younger and he hasn't aged but his character seems to be a bit of twat! Glad it's moved to a Tuesday. I hate Tuesdays with a passion but this makes it slightly better. That and my other guilty pleasure - River City (don't judge!).

What a show it was tonight! Please tell me Bea is not dead!

GinBunny Tue 09-Aug-16 23:08:24

How good was that episode?! WOW! Bea'll be fine, no doubt but Ferguson's been rumbled, how is that going to pan out?

JoanFerguson Tue 09-Aug-16 23:10:28

I love Wentworth they must have so much fun writing it

babynugget Tue 09-Aug-16 23:30:04

Bernard Currys's bum! blush

Wow, my heart was racing last night after that fiasco! I'm dreading to find out what happens next. Brilliant writing & acting!

Groovee Wed 10-Aug-16 10:49:22

Fell asleep during last night's episode so just caught up and Wowshock

We love it. Last night's episode was amazing. Ferguson is so scary. Karen won't leave her alone now.

michelle303 Wed 10-Aug-16 16:40:17

It was so explosive last night. I haven't really liked Kaz so far but now she's seen Ferguson's true colours I'm excited to see where it goes. I hope Bea is ok!

ChrissieLatham Wed 10-Aug-16 23:56:53

My favourite character is Vera, I just love her awkwardness, the actress plays her really well.
Did anyone watch the original prisoner cell block h?

AccidentGuilt Thu 11-Aug-16 00:00:46

Yes I watched for a good few years. I recognise your username. Chrissie had baby with the prison electrician didn't she?

michelle303 Thu 11-Aug-16 09:04:35

Vera is a great character - she gets a lot of stick but I think she's a great governor. I wish she'd let her hair down a bit and let people into her life though! sad

I'm a massive prisoner cell block h fan.

Chrissie became pregnant after getting transferred to another prison after killing mr Jackson. He was killed in a riot right at the start like Meg was in wentworth. It was an officer at another prison who got her pregnant. Then she was transferred back to wentworth. And put in the block where Mrs Jackson worked...
