Played with surprising restraint and sly humour by former model Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Simon Adebisi - a Nigerian-born cop-killer - ruled over the experimental prison wing 'Emerald City' for four seasons.
A grand schemer of rare cunning, utter ruthlessness and eerie charisma, Adebisi rarely got his hands dirty in his desire to control Emerald City's drug trade. While occassionally exploding into a violent rage, Adebisi's gift was in the plot and counter-plot, the turning of one prisoner against another.
only a great character, he was used brilliantly by the writers/directors,
and was a key ingredient in making OZ such a compelling, bloody treat.

those inclined to believe anything they see in Farenheit 9/11,
I suggest reading through Dave
Kopel's long and devastating demolition of this supposed "documentary".
Actually, Harleys are kinda cool, because they prove you can succeed no matter how bad your product is, so long as you have the right marketing skills.
.....Engines which couldn't pull a lesbian off your sister.....
.....soggy suspension which is deliberately designed not to work (I'm talking about the horizontally slanted rear shocks, so designed because they look cooler that way).....
.....build quality which would shame even the Italian manufacturers (Harley's big, anemic engines have the worst stress tolerances in the motorcycling world, not to mention the shit finish and muddy brakes).....
....handling which resembles a chaff bag filled with custard. You can forget going around corners on these things: even if the crap suspension and crummy overweight chassis was up to it, they have zero ground clearance and a wider turning circle than a bus......
...minimal luggage-carrying capacity & terrible passenger seats....
....they're ugly. To all those people who ride chromed-up Harleys: do you have any idea how stupid you look?
....comfort is much overrated. Apart from the shit suspension sending every bump directly up your spine and through your kidneys, you have crap seats to deal with. And a bolt-upright riding position produces the not-fun "wind-sock" effect....
...ludicrously overpriced. These bikes would be a rip-off at half the price. If you must have a cruiser, buy Japanese: better engines, suspension, reliability, comfort and value.....
So, it's safe to say that I don't "get" Harleys. If the only places you ride are long, smooth highways with no bends, then a Harley would make sense.
I'd rather eat hair. If I wanted a slow, boring bike, I'd buy a scooter.
At least they can go around corners, and I'd have the money left over
to buy a real bike.
The tree-hugging, freedom-hating stalinists are in fine form this week....
- Coca-Cola is really evil or something.
Well actually dumbass, he's hardly rebutted anything in Kopel's essay. Go click this link: Kopel has listed Moore's responses... there aren't too many of them. I especially note the lack of response top Kopel's dissection of Moore's looney Unocal pipeline conspiracies.
Then there's this howler...
I notice Moore hasn't come good with this promise, which would probably leave him $500,000 poorer if his lack of responses to Kopel is anything to go by. Note how many times Kopel has explicitly labelled Moore's claims as lies, and how few times Moore refutes it.
the Green Left's love of Castro's totalitarian state, it's no surprise
they love a movie like this. Leftism and reality rarely meet.
Some sorry-ass, Castro-loving looney has set up a Moore-loving website 'Who's with Michael Moore?'.
Some of the dorks in the comments are provide amusement:
locking up political opponents is A-OK, but people flying flags is horrifying.
Support Brave Multinationals!!!
