You bloody love it... go on just admit it :)

If you've never seen it, don't watch, you will neglect your kids, your partner and your job. In the end end you will become homeless and thousands of pounds in debt... it Is that addictive. :D :cool1:

I'm sure all the episodes are on youtube, so go for it.
I've downloaded the first 530 episodes so far, only took me a couple of years :breaking: bit by bit.

I was a huge Cell BLock H fan :thumb:

Loved the carboard cell walls, and I even had a bit of a crush on the short blonde haired prison guard for a while :oops:

Which guard was that? The one that springs to mind is "Vinegar Tits". Or Meg Morris.
I had a crush on Bea Smith. I loved Lizzy Birdsworth like you love a grandmother.
The black haired girl at the beginning of the first episode is really fit. :)

PCBH was my comfort in my early to late teens when hormones were kicking my arse and I was struggling in life.

I really must get round to watching this...http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0103282/

Uplifting and intimate look at the last days of an elderly cancer victim. The film is even more relevant as it was written specifically for the lead actress, Sheila Florance, who was in fact dying of cancer as she created what is essentially a self-portrait.


Meg Morris was the only character I think to be in PCBH throughout the whole show, with a few breaks obv

I used to love Prisoner Cell Block H. Channel 5 ran it years ago and I watched near enough every episode.

I wish one of the channels would run it again. You can get every episode on DVD now I believe. Being I think 600 and odd episodes though it could get expensive buying all the DVD's.

Last time I looked it was around £500. :eek4:
I've downloaded almost all (up to 530 I think), it's took me a while just downloading bits of them at a time but it beats spending all that money.
You can also download them off youtube with a free legal youtube downloader. There's probably even browser add-ons that allow youtube downloads. :breaking:

I watched them all on channel 5 too.
Before that it was on S4C the welsh channel 4, and Granada, where I discovered it when I was 10. :)
