OZ has been showered with praise by the critics during the first two seasons. In the New York Times Magazine, Stanley Crouch hailed the show's "consistently brilliant acting -- some of the best in the history of television," adding, "OZ is a landmark for the medium. It's something we should celebrate." The Boston Globe called the series a "remarkably mind-tingling drama," noting, "HBO's return to OZ is terrific." Marvin Kitman wrote in Newsday, "Nothing on the tube prepared me for this kind of realistic drama... the actors are fantastic... the acting is magical, the directing and writing are marvelous."
