I, Lubin Odana, am watching every episode of Prisoner Cell Block H from the start. This blog is an "ethnographic" commentary on the fashion choices of characters in this 1970s/1980s Australian soap. Or in other words, I'm just making fun of them.

It's always nice when Prisoner decides to use a lazy stereotype. We've got Jean the fluffy middle-class social worker, Greg the earnest British doctor, Erica the ladylike governess, Lizzie the old lag and now meet Dr Wiseman the Jewish psychiatrist. Because Freud was Jewish, wasn't he? And Jewish people have big noses, don't they?
