"For Life - definitely worth watching"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Thoroughly enjoyed Season One. Great cast and excellent story lines. It's been quite sometime since I have seen something as good as this. Each episode felt like it was only five minutes long due to getting pulled into the story. It is a drama, it's about justice, love, corruption, prison life, and hope.

I look forward to the next season – hopefully they're making it.


For Life is a fictional serialised legal and family drama inspired by the life of Isaac Wright, Jr. about a prisoner who becomes a lawyer, litigating cases for other inmates while fighting to overturn his own life sentence for a crime he didn't commit.

His quest for freedom is driven by his desperate desire to get back to the family he loves and reclaim the life that was stolen from him. Through the window of his ferocious struggle and his complicated relationship with a progressive female prison warden, the series examines the flaws and challenges in the penal and legal systems.

Critic Reviews:

  • " An imposing emotional experience to process hour by hour, one that – regardless of how brilliantly its ensemble performs – may be tough to overcome. However, the narrative's tou­ghness also works to the show's credit. " – Melanie McFarland (Salon.com)
  • " Has the feel of a high-quality procedural instead of a super-serialized prestige show. " – Joel Keller (Decider)
  • " The most interesting thing, though, in both dramatic and thematic terms, is Wallace's willin­gness to bend and break the rules to advance his agenda – from his choices of which inmates' causes to adopt, to lying, to outright fabrication of evidence. " – Mike Hale (New York Times)
