I think if I went as far as to rent OZ episodes, my guy would be furious with me.

I think its one thing to want to watch lock up shows,
I don't think it's weird you have a quest for justice in your heart.

Yes, I am pretty much obsessed. I watched too many movies about prison even before knowing someone in there.

Its funny that i came across this, cause my little sister today seen my on this site and she told me. Omg your so obsessed with that website. I wouldnt think that its im obsessed with it. Im going through alot and nobody, not my friends or relatives understands me. So i get on here to lessen the pain of missing my boyfriend. Look for tips and suggestions..

I even find myself flipping through the tv channels and i will stop to watch a show thats based on prisons or jails. Something i would have never done before. I think it just goes with dealing with the way i am living my life today. Nothing wrong with that i wouldnt think. =)

In case anyone is interested, Lockup is showing brand new episodes - the only bad thing is they come on Sundays @ 3am. I have my DVR set to tape and watch them later. So far it is alot of updates about former prisons they visited.
Happy Thanksgiving!

I am with you... I was the same way...way before I met anyone or had anything to do with anyone in prison. I am a Criminal Justice student so that does not help things...I just get into even more now. LOL

For anyone who is interested in books about the prison experience, here's an interesting article listing a number of them.

I do find myself Googling a lot of stuff. Just like everyone else has said I just want to understand. But I can't watch the shows about prison. I guess it makes this to "real" if that even makes sense. We only have about 55 days left so I am focusing on the future. That helps me deal. But I do love this site. It does help to see that although my friends and family don't understand what we are going through there are others dealing with this too.

The only way I am obsessed with prison stuff is to change a system that has way too many problems with it and I am obsessed with wanting to make sure the people locked up are being treated right. Now I am aware of all the things that are wrong and what goes on I want to help make some changes not just in my state but in all the prisons/jails.

I'm on PTO all the time I guess I'm obsessed with support lol. Other than that I hate watching lockup to know that my sweetie is in a place like that makes my stomach turn. I get super sad to know our life style before he left and that small cell he in now but he strong so he good till he get back. Then I watch the women lookup programs and that make me wanna get up and go pay mt tickets. I'm like hell naw not me! Lol

If I come across it, I watch it. I don't go out of my way to unless someone else recommends it, it's at VSPW, where my best friend is or LCC where her brother is. I got into Oz because a friend recommended it. Watched Beyond Scared Straight because my Ma was watching it and asked if it was the one my best friend was at.

I still have yet to find that one episode I saw years ago of, I think it was 20/20, that they filmed at VSPW. My friend just hid in her room all day, so she's not on it, but it was an interesting episode.

I am obsessed with most anything that has to do with Prison. . . .Movies, Books, TV shows, etc. You name it! I wanted to major in Criminal Justice in College but I then changed my major to Nursing. My fiance is in Prison but I have always been intrigued by anything to do with Prison. I'm not sure why. Even shows like CSI & Criminal Minds peak my interest. I guess I just like it altogether! Ofcourse I would never want to go to Prison. It's just interesting.

I used to be but now I'm not. I stil watch the occasional prison show or prison theme, but I've cooled down a LOT.

As long as my son remains in prison, yes I will be obsessed. This is a whole new ballgame for us, so needless to say I am blown away with what really goes on behind those walls..... My son is in a good place now, so just need to do the time

I minored in Criminiology in College... I love the music and stories of Lyfe Jennings and some of Akons...

Anything Prison related. It makes me feel connected kind of. Is that weird?

Anyone else?

LOL! I'm so glad I'm not the only one who feels this way! Every since B got locked up, it's like it opened my eyes to a totally different world! It really is interesting though compared to what I've known my whole life. I love Lockup Raw, and I'm going to school to be an inmate counselor lol.
