Sheriff Noel Tells Us How They Pulled Off Season 2 Of 60 Days In

Cable’s No. 1 nonfiction series — Season 2 of 60 Days In — returns to A&E tonight (Aug. 18 at 9/8c) with a fresh group of recruits trying to survive behind bars. Indiana’s Sheriff Jamey Noel took a big risk when he introduced a new program that planted over 100 cameras and a group of innocent individuals (all volunteers) into Clark County Jail. The result was a riveting social study of survival that made A&E’s 60 Days In the No. 1 nonfiction series on cable this year. But, more importantly, it was an informative tell-all on the internal corruption occurring […]

A&E’s 60 Days In “Fight Face” recap: It’s been 10 o’clock for seven years

It’s just another beautiful day in the Clark County Jail, brought to you by the well-intentioned but foolhardy cast of A&E’s 60 Days In. In economic news today, Forbes reports that it’s still MOB: Money Over Bitches!! Read more of our 60 Days In recaps here! It’s Episode 4 of 60 Days In, and the show has really hit its stride with “Fight Face.” I no longer care that Robert is probably an actor planted in the cast. [Update: Bingo!] I’m willing to put up with a little reality TV fakery just for the other inmates’ priceless responses to his […]

A&E’s 60 Days In “Cell Shock” recap: Show us your tots!

OH, HELL YES! Our favorite Amish Mafia guy is actually joining C-Pod!! I can’t wait to learn his name or find out what he’s in for. Read more of our 60 Days In recaps here! Episode 3 of A&E’s 60 Days In, “Cell Shock,” starts pretty much as expected. “Robert is doing everything wrong,” says Capt. Scottie Maples. Robert is an imbecile, or at least he plays one on TV. Robert’s a danger to himself and anyone who befriends him, like poor, poor DiAundré here, who just wanted to eat his meal in peace like a female but instead gets socked […]

A&E’s 60 Days In “First Timers” recap: Straight Outta D Pod!

In Episode 2 of A&E’s 60 Days In, “First Timers,” the plot thickens, Zac’s just chillin’ and Robert’s booty tightens as his cover story falls apart. Read more of our 60 Days In recaps here! I love this guy. He looks like a less resourceful member of the Amish Mafia. I we get to check in on him every episode. Let’s see how our volunteer prisoners are doing this week. Zac’s pretty good at this jail thing. Maybe a little too good. He’s smart enough to keep his mouth shut. He can keep his story straight. He doesn’t immediately look like […]

A&E’s 60 Days In recap: Welcome to the Thunder Dome!

Welcome to the first recap of A&E’s 60 Days In (Thursdays at 10pm ET/PT), a.k.a. So You Think You Can Survive Two Months In Prison. To be clear, I am not watching and recapping 60 Days In because I care about prison reform or the rights of the incarcerated. Nor am I pursuing a technical college evening degree program in Correctional Science or any of that. On the list of things that I worry about on a daily basis, prison conditions are 36,447th. No, I’m 100 percent in this thing for making wise-ass commentary (perhaps you are familiar with my work?) about reality show participants […]
