PRISONER CELL BLOCK H IS BACK
Well, sort of.
More from GTea Break
Someone in Australia is very wisely repeating the entire series of women-in-jail-drama Prisoner (aka Prisoner: Cell Block H in the UK) and to mark the occasion singer Ella Hooper has recorded a new version of the iconic theme, On The Inside.
Can’t say we actually LIKE it, but it’s hilarious that it opens with such a vicious quote from Bea Smith (LOVE. HER.) about wishing someone would suffocate. Charming. And also amazing, obviously.
“It’s me, Bea Smith – I run the girls in here, remember?” Snaps to them for including our favourite scene, where Bea traps Wonky Warner’s hand in the steam press. We do that in the office with the photocopier.
The fact that they’ve filmed a sort of comedy pop video for it parodying the actual ‘classic series’ is quite amusing too. They should’ve just gone with this one instead (filmed on the actual Bad Girls set, fact fans)
Obviously you can’t watch the repeats in this country, but they’ve released the first 192 episodes on DVD in the UK so far. Only another 600 to go, eh?
