60 Days In (Review)

The season has ended for the reality show 60 days in which aired on A & E networks.  60 days in, is about a group of innocent people who are put into a jail for 60 days in a troubled jail. The warden of the jail wanted to see what is going on in the jail secretly from the guards and prisoners. The chosen people for the show, set out to see what is going right and wrong in the jail and some of them did what they were set to do, others learned more about themselves more and less than about what was going on in the jail. The prisoners who did the most and fit in more with the prisoners were Zach and Tami.  Zach and Tami actually did what the show set them out to do, which was to show the wardens what was going on in the jail. Zach told the warden about hidden knives and other contraband and Tami told the warden about some drugs being smuggled into the jail with the lunch trays.  The other “inmates” mostly learned more about themselves and who  they were in jail. Barbara the housewife was the one who changed the most during the show. Barbara came on the show as a quiet and shy type and at the end pretty much became the pod boss. Robert the teacher, who I think was just there to get some camera time and might have some mental condition, was a complete waste of time as he spent most his time in solitary confinement.  60 days in was a very interesting reality show, as it showed you prison life that many people don’t get too see from the prisoners point of view.  I can’t wait for season two of the show, which will air hopefully soon. Good job A&E and to the “inmates”. If you haven’t seen the show, it is worth checking out. Here are some highlights from the show :
