Netflix has added The World's Toughest Prisons rebranded as made for Netflix, but I'm sure I've seen this on FTA TV a few years ago. They used to play it late. Anyway, it's worth a watch just to see some of these horrific places you'd never want even your worst enemy to be sent to.
The South African prison was beyond bad!

Good show don't mind it

Enjoyed it on a Sunday afternoon.

Feel sorry for the bloke. Not sure if it was all worth it if you are now in excruciating pain for the rest of your life.

No mention of steroid use either. There is no way you can get that big just eating chicken and sweet potato.

I never knew much about him but crazy the lengths he’d go to get that big

Speed cubers is a good family doco maybe to watch with the kids.
Suitable for all ages.

I finished it yesterday, it's not bad, but not as good as I was hoping for. This post probably best captures my thoughts on it..

I get the feeling that reviewer is not the target audience at all. It's for nostalgia loving thirty/forty somethings that want to relive the excitement of opening a console for Christmas or spending all their pocket money on arcade games, not for people that already know all the stories inside and out. That being said, I haven't watched it yet, so probably shouldn't comment...

He took it way too seriously. It’s very light hearted. It’s a little random in its focus at times, and could’ve been better, all the tournaments/e-sports I couldn’t give a sh*t about personally.

But I’m still liking it so far, really interesting hearing from some of the ppl how they came up with designing some of the famous game characters. Also Sega’s battle plan vs Nintendo was cool. I remember when Sega was HUGE.

I enjoyed the trip back.

I can understand the need for more - but I also feel other shows will do that ie Toys that made Us had some in depth stuff on consoles. The doco on ET is around somewhere.

tl;dr its ok but if you want more its out there
