I cant believe they let these lil punks interact with the inmates like that because the way they are disrespecting them if they do end up getting locked up and they run into the inmate they disrespected they will get jumped. cant wait to see a follow up story of how one of these dweebs got stabbed up for acting a fool on the show.

It is a shame that in the U.K. this wouldn't work. As prisons are nice comfortable places due to the Human Rights Laws of the E.U. Now if they wanted to scare teens, show them Retirement Homes.

I love this show its a shame Britain does have such programs to help but our youths straight. But in saying that British prisons are like holiday camps compared to the ones in the U.S. its about time our goverment looked at this & made our prisons stricter

the first episode/season was really good. The second season i thought was okay, but dont really like when they have the parents there with them at the jail.

I like this show, it's funny to watch the kids reactions to being in prison. Some of these kids actually benefit from the experience, even if it is overdramatized a bit. I don't think I would've taken the program seriously, but some kids who actually do dangerous activities might have a wake up call.

Great idea, great show. They definitely need something like this here in the UK. Kids over here get away with murder (literally).

This kind of thing can put little spoilt 'wannabes' on the straight n narrow, but the hopeless hardcore, will always fill up the prisons.

This wouldn't be an issue if parents could just beat their kids.

you know what i find kinda funny? is that cannabis is actually better for you then alcohol, but cannabis is illegal and alcohol isnt. it doesnt really make much sense.

i'm shocked of how much kids are troubled in America! and they start at a very young age! drugs and sex seems to be normal in a teenager's life! i think this program is the only way that could get through to them! the more ugly and scary the jail could get the better. the only thing i think they should show the kids other than screaming and yelling is the 101 meetings with the inmates Because I believe that is more effective.

What happened to the prison/coroner office trip? I was signed up for the Juvenile Intervention Program in southern California back in middle school. And yes we straight ate at the prison, got yelled at by the prisoners, saw the hole, showers, yard, holding tanks....etc. Then got transported next door to the coroners office to watch a sad video of suicide and stupidity. Passed family members in the lobby that were probably there to collect their loved one's possessions, or to identify. We were then led to the back past an odtopsy being done on a poor man's skull...and dead fire fighters in the hallway that died in that morning's helicopter crash. Then 2 by 2 looked into the overly crowded freezer...clearly being notified by officers that the little white bags were the young ones...we then went back to the jail to talk to our parents through the telephone. messed up right?? i still didn't learn anything at the time, it was just a day off of school. people can only grow up when they want to.
