Frontline in Solitary Confinement

The long-running PBS series Frontline is consistently excellent.  Even if you don’t think you’re interested in the subject matter, you should always catch it – it’s that good.  Besides top-rate journalism and filmmaking equal to the task, the narration by Will Lyman pushes it over the top.  It’s surprising that youFrontline - graphic small don’t hear him in more places than Frontline and the Dos Equis spots.

Frontline’s look into solitary confinement paralleled Hot Girls Wanted in that each followed a group of individuals on a progression generally from a bad situation to a worse one.  But unlike Hot Girls Wanted, Frontline has a much better handle on how to tell those stories.  Recommended; available online (select “Solitary Nation”) or via PBS apps.
