The show gives a no-holds-barred account of prison life with all the plots, subplots and conflicts given context and explaination by the show's wheelchair-bound narrator, Augustus Hill.

Oz is a show that is recommended a lot. I think the show is okay. I don't know yet if it's worth watching all seasons but I'll continue watching since I like shows and films taking place in prison. I'm not yet convinced, though.
