“Captivating TV.” Read on for the full verdict on last night’s TV.

True Stories: Maximum Jail

True Stories: Maximum Jail, More 4
“True Stories: Maximum Prison, a documentary about Angola prison in Lousiana, should have been unremittingly bleak given that 95 per cent of its 5,100 inmates expect to die within its walls. But Jonathan Stack’s film, a 10-years-on sequel to an earlier film called The Farm, was unexpectedly uplifting.”
Tom Sutcliffe, The Independent

“Maximum Jail was a powerful film with a remarkable sensitivity to its own impact on its subjects.”

“Captivating TV.”
Matt Baylis, Daily Express

CSI: Miami, Five
“The whole fun of CSI: Miami is in Horatio, with all his smarmy dialogue, which is 90 per cent just rephrasing what the previous speaker has said. David Caruso’s portrayal, it’s becoming increasingly clear, is one of the great comic performances of our time. Those who argue that it’s unintentionally so are surely wrong; no-one, simply no-one, could be that bad an actor.”
Andrea Mullaney, The Scotsman

Torchwood: Children of Earth, BBC1
“Torchwood’s second day bored me a little.”
Andrew Billen, The Times

Imagine… Rufus Wainright: Prima Donna, BBC1
“Midly hagiographic.”
Andrew BIllen, The Times
