    There's nothing like seeing these little gangsta shit heads get smacked around and screamed at by inmates. It's a great show to watch with a nice alcohol buzz, it's hilarious.

    I doubt these programs work for most of these shitty kids though, they just go back home to their fucked up, single parent homes in the end.

    It's on A&E network. Normally I hate "reality" shows with a burning passion, but this one is worth watching.

    some kids do turn they lives around after the show and other kids do not. it depends on the kid or teenage.

    the beyond scared straight program as been going even before it was on tv. and yes what you see that show is real. unlike other realty shows.

    in college I took a criminal justice class taught by the guy who invented scared straight. He was the warden of rahway prison in the 70s and 80s. He told a great story about Joe Walsh, they had a contest where you wrote in to a radio station and the winner had Joe give a concert at your house. Well they picked the winner and he was an inmate at Rahway. The warden told he probably should back out but Joe said he'd do it.

    Well he showed up and played a few hits but it turns out the brothas who were the majority of inmates were NOT Eagles fans. warden said they were about to tear him apart, he said Joe played people get ready, and the crowd calmed down enough for him to get the FUCK out of there without getting killed

    Walsh is the one Eagle I actually like, but he's no Johnny Cash.

    I think I have A&E on my Apple TV, so I plan to check this out.

    The one show I could never get enough of, I could literally sit in front of the TV for as long as they are it, was To Catch a Predator. No matter how many guys they busted, it never got old. It will never come back, but man I wish it would.

    Holy shit!

    "Please bear with us as we work hard to produce this new series and we can ensure you, you will not be disappointed. Predator. Is. Back."

    Thanks, I had no idea. I really hope it happens and is as good as the original. Hard the fuck up that concept, though.

    besides scaring these kids away from a lifetime of crime it does great work to berate and scare wiggers into acting white. the old pbs shows were hilarious. Sesame steet taught me the abc's on PBS and late night I learned a lot of my first curse words from watching it as a kid.

    As scary as these guys are they usually try to keep the lifers away. Some get on but they generally don't want anyone with nothing to lose to have the opportunity to snap the neck of a little wanksta.

    That shit was for real and I watched it when I was in about the 5th grade. Scared the fuck out of me. No shit. I can quote the entire thing practically and there are some awesome one-liners that should probably be sampled for half the rap songs out there.

    The new show is sofa king lame. The kids now are so disrespectful and the censored language is laughable. Hearing some hard ass screaming about someone looking in your "butthole" during a strip search (without giggling) kinda ruins the whole "scared" part. Also, they KNOW nothing is going to happen to them. At the end about 100% of the criers who swear to "be good" are right back to fucking up within a week. New version is a joke.

    Go to about 6:40. When you are a kid in 1979 you don't forget shit like this...
