Love After Lockup cable tv series

I just found this show, it has I think 7episodes so far. There's 4 couples, 2 guys and 2 women inmates that are uniting with their penpal turned significant other. It's ok I guess, but definitely not something I would do. The allowing filming of my relationship that is. I've got lenpals but not involved with them romantically. I just thought Id post about it, in case others aren't aware of it!.

Good sleuthing, Monkey Joe. It's kind of neat to see the people behind the forum posts. Funny -- there's two 'beautiful people' couples, and two just ordinary average-looking couples. I was struck by how the 'beautiful people' ones seemed to be set up for success.

ChiTownRob is everything I expected him to be from his posts. That is one heck of a confident guy.

I still can't fathom why anyone would agree to have their personal life showcased like that. I'd only undergo such a torment and humiliation -- maybe -- for a large enough sum of cash to be able to retire into obscurity overseas afterwards.

Its hilarious, 3 years ago I remember seeing the Russian girl's profile on a site and I seriously considered writing her. No joke. Her name is Alla Subotina. Something stopped me though.

Wasn't there some guy on this forum a year or two ago from Chicago? ChiTownRob? He had some big story about getting married. Maybe that's the same guy!?

Yup, I think it actually is him! He has a connection to Wisconsin and everything. And said he was a former soldier, just like the guy in the show. Small world! Wonder if the producers found him here???

What a shame I can’t watch this online in the U.K. looks like an interesting programme managed the one episode on YouTube :)

Netflix over here has four seasons of it! State prisons, county jail, one called disturbing the peace and another, chain linked.

Damn, Lizzie has got it good with Scott the truck driver. I know she admitted that he was a trick but is no longer. I don't know. I need to watch more of them. I'm worried for him because he's already been hurt and she plays tricks. I don't think it'll turn out great. I want to remain optimistic though, lol.
Garrett and Johnna- He's cute. I kind of feel like she's living in a dream world.
Lamar and Andrea- This is going to be interesting.
James and Alla- I wonder how it's going to turn out.

This is a fascinating show.

Garrett and Johnna (who you probably thought was named Johanna), are kind of hilarious. They're like that episode of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia where Dennis married Maureen.

Andrea and Lamar seem doomed. I can't believe she bought him A CAR.

Alla is so beautiful and sweet. I am so jealous of James.

Lizzie is such a horrid gold digger and I can't believe what a sucker Scott is.

Alla and James are the only relationship I think have a chance long term.

It boggles the mind because she has openly admitted that she uses men to get money. But this guy is such a sucker that he thinks he's an exception. It's sad. He says he has sent her $20,000 so far.

Later in the series, he admits he sent her a cell phone. You're really sending contraband? He has to know that this is being smuggled in somehow. Pretty sure he admitted to breaking the law.

They are a total train wreck. She is clearly just desperate for marriage. All her friends got married and sometimes that takes a toll on a woman. She is so blinded by her desperation that she cannot see how flawed this relationship already is. She's a pretty girl but she's so clingy and possessive. The relationship worked when Garrett was in prison because either she or the prison had total control over him. Now that he's free, it's driving her crazy. And he's no prince either. Going out drinking with friends, ignoring her, going to strip clubs. Also, that $13,000 car and that engagement ring cost several thousand too. No way he's going to be able to keep up with those payments. I fear he may turn to illegal means to get the money and end up back in prison.

Quote:
Lamar and Andrea- This is going to be interesting.

Andrea is extremely controlling and very prone to jealousy. Much like Johnna. First there was the car wash. A young black lady working at the car wash was basically doing her job of being friendly because that's what you do when you're in a customer service position. Andrea threw a big fit, accused her of flirting with Lamar, and started pouting.

She's immature too. Lamar had a welcome home party attended by his friends. His adult daughter was also going to show up too. Andrea was fine with that. Then she found out the mother would also be showing up. She immediately made up an excuse and left the party. She is utterly infuriated about the idea of Lamar having any contact with a woman he slept with nearly 20 years ago. Andrea really angers me.

Quote:
James and Alla- I wonder how it's going to turn out.

I hope it works out. They are so cute together and they seem more mature than the other couples. James pushed her a little too hard to get back into modelling, but he seemed to realize that and cool off a little.

You're confusing this show with an MSNBC show simply called "Lockup". Only one season of "Love After Lockup" was produced.

I don't know if this is available outside the U.S., but you can buy the first season on Amazon.com Video.

I just watched the first couple of minutes, might have been seconds...anyway, it was long enough. But then I'm not a liker of reality shows in any form. It reminds me of the Roman amphitheatres. Throw them to the lions. This of course is just my opinion, and how I feel. Or I'm just getting old...

I enjoyed the first episode, wish there was somewhere to watch the rest from the UK.

Lock Up is the reason i decided to look for a prison penpal.

Watching it tonight on Netflix, and one of the inmates mentioned they have penpals, so after a google search, here i am!

You're thinking of a completely different show.  Lockup is a long running MSNBC documentary show.  Love After Lockup is a shamelessly exploitative WeTV reality show that only has 7 episodes.  It is not available on Netflix.

The UK can watch it on the website, daily motion. That’s what I watched it on :-)

I did end up watching it on putlocker. 

I actually really enjoyed it, outmates were crazier than the inmates lol.

Was that also what was causing her sickness Zarchery?

Oh wow, that’s a shame about the miscarriage. Makes sense though.

Yeah, they were all clingy. That’s why I said they were crazier. The inmates all seemed pretty reasonable.

I’m surprised Alla said she got on with Chris. He did come off as a right prick. Just shows you that what we see is always altered to look a certain way.

So they are doing these sort of compilation shows called "Our Story".  Each is a single episode with all of a particular couple's segments in one episode.  Next Friday (October 19th) they are doing this for Johnna and Garrett.  The Friday after that (October 26th) they are doing one for James and Alla.  I'm feeling a mix of anticipation and nervousness for the show on the 26th, since Alla's a friend now.

I just started watching this show and I can't stop. I'm halfway through season two. I have places to be today and I keep watching Love After Lockup. I guess they just ordered 10 more episodes.
