I could not get into this show for the life of me.

I'm already kind of... I have a hard time watching prison stuff, it has to be stylized in some way (an old prison like Shawshank, or a space prison, or whatever).  Like you said, this was too sanitized.  It actually reminded me more of college than Community!  Even that first scene where she's in the shower, I thought "...that's the exact shower floor I had!"  When Piper goes to make a phone call, it felt like she was at a teacher's office!  And the fact that we keep cutting to the outside world or seeing flashbacks keeps the prison from feeling appropriately isolated and confining, you know?
