What is our obsession with the penal system? For decades, we have been running to theaters or watching TV shows centered around life in prison. Why? Shouldn’t we be doing everything we can to avoid anything to do with lockup? Instead, we constantly seek to follow both the despicable and the innocent as they descend into purgatory. We discuss why we love jail in film and TV this week, as well as which characters we would want by our side should the law not go our way. Listen as we discuss this and much more on this episode of The Hollywood Outsider.
