The Land of Oz vs Oz the Prison: An Infographic Comparing The Two...


I saw the Sam Raimi Oz film this weekend and I must say that I was truly impressed. I really liked the way Raimi brought the world of L Frank Baum to life on the screen, with all the visual mastery that we have come to expect from him. But I used to be in love with a different land of Oz... that of the Oswald State Correctional Facility, or OZ from the HBO hit series. That Oz was a bit different... you know, all the raping Aryans and killer inmates kind of make those witches seem a bit passe. I came across this really cool infographic over at Vulture that compares the two lands of Oz and found it quite funny. Hope you guys enjoy it...
