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 you 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.
