To Your Health

Aug 11, 1997 Season 1 Episode 6

Three generations of Alvarezes--all prisoners at Oz--are united when the patriarch, Ricardo, is found face-down in his cell, suffering from Alzheimer's. Meanwhile, Tobias Beecher, who as the neo-Nazi Schillinger's 'girlfriend' has been forced to wear women's clothes, flips out after taking PCP and sends Schillinger to the hospital with a cut eye. Other inmates aren't exactly the picture of health, either: mob boss Schibetta has stomach pains caused by ground glass intentionally mixed in with his food, and Muslim leader Kareem Said has a heart attack after refusing to take medication for high blood pressure.

The Routine

Jul 12, 1997 Season 1 Episode 1

In the 'Emerald City' experimental unit of Oswald State Penitentiary, we meet some of the diverse inmates who exist in a pecking order of Gangbangers, Latinos, Muslims, Westies, Aryans and Wiseguys. No clear-cut leader emerges--with the possible exception of Kareem Said, a Muslim author who preaches non-violence and abstinence. Said's arrival doesn't prevent a short-fused Mafia inmate named Dino Ortolani from ticking off just about everybody--a habit that ends up burning him.
