Ohmygosh. Okay - yes, you're right - Beechers from Oz. And if you EVER get a chance to - WATCH it. It rocks.
Okay, before going COMPLETELY OT (because trust me, Oz could be its own thread as far as I'm concerned) - CM plays Chris Keller - the sexual predator that is trying to win Beecher's heart.
There were a few shoutouts in the ep - the puppets are probably a S.O. to Nooter Pecker - the two puppets from Miss Sally's school yard (the show that all the inmates watch). And I also heard that there was a line about him harming the kid like, 'You think I could ever do any harm to your kid' - which was almost a direct quote from an ep of Oz when Beecher's kids got kidnapped by the Aryans.
Is there like a support group somewhere for this kind of thing?
I have been curious about Oz just cuz I hear such good things about it. I have a feeling it might disturb the hell out of me though.. heh. But my friend who is obsessed with it likes pretty much the same stuff I do, so I'm assuming I'd like it if she does.
I've definitely heard of both Beecher and Keller from her because towards the end of the series, she'd tell me about what was going on with her favorite characters and those were two of her favorites. One of them got the death penalty right? Or someone she liked did.. I don't know, I can't really remember now. I just remember her being upset that someone got the death penalty or was going to get the death penalty.
Chris Meloni was really good on Scrubs. I'd never seen him in anything before, but he cracked me up. He was really good opposite John C. McGinley (Dr. Cox). I read somewhere that his character might become recurring, but I don't know how true that is. I think that would awesome because he fit into the show really well.
