I feel like I have missed a season of 60 Days In, but I went back to read the previous recaps and I remember now. In case you don’t realize it, the show names on the black bar above will take you directly to all the recaps of the shows. As soon as I publish this one, this post will be on top, but if you scroll down you will find the previous recaps.
For the record, here were my thoughts Nate staying for another 60 Days, “It’s just not the bloods that love Nate. Colonel Mark does too. I cannot believe he is going to ask him to stay for another 60 days. But they do. I’d like to go on record saying I think this is a bad idea.” In my opinion, Nate has become institutionalized and lost sight of his mission I predict this will not end well.
I realize there is a lot of competition in this time slot for shows, but I’d like to encourage you to DVR this or watch it on Demand, it is the one reality show that is completely unscripted.
Oh dear God, it is two hours long! And it looks like they had to shut down production because of someone. I am telling you right now, it will be Nate. He is a loose cannon. Also, you have to be a fucking lunatic to go to prison in Fulton County voluntarily.
We start with Nate, who seems to think he is on a game show. I really hope he had someone renegotiate his contract for season two, because this is ridiculous. Oh look. They are going to give his a psych test. This is a good start. The shrink asks like three questions and clears him.
We have a new guy, Alan who is a cop. And really cute. He is upset with the perception of the police these days. He’s hoping to change the perceptions of the police. Yet, he lives a black man on the side of the road rather than get him to a shelter or something. He has a beautiful wife and an adorable baby girl. He’s a bit nervous, as he should be. It looks like the inmates make him right away.

Alan did not get off to a great start at the end of Phase one. Here is what I said about him. “A new inmate, Alan, has arrived in 500 and he really wants some shampoo. He asks around and the guys suggest he ask Nate and he will help him out. The guy goes into his cell where Nate is sleep and wakes him up. This is a bad idea but Nate gives him some shampoo anyway. Then Nate starts running his mouth in confessional about this nobody comes to wake him up asking for shampoo. It appears Nate is the new Too Tall because he calls one of the bloods to the door and tells them to talk to the new kid.”
Matt is an MMA trainer, and I think he said he was doing prison out reach. Did he just say he has 8 kids and is a Mormon? I think they really had to go to Utah to find people dumb enough to go to Fulton County Jail. His son Andrew is going to do it too. Andrew is a 25 year old substitute teacher. I think his dad wants to toughen him up. Matt takes Andrew to some self defense classes before he goes in. Andrew’s scariest thing so far was a Mormon mission in Brazil.
The Women (South Annex)
Jaclin is a paralegal and an aspiring attorney who hopes to decide if she wants to be a defense attorney or a prosecutor. She’s pretty and that may be a problem. She has a boyfriend. Her baby died in a tragic accident. I think we are missing a lot of this story. They now have a five year old daughter. Whatver the tragic accident was, she feels responsible. He cover story is that she got drunk and pulled a knife on her boyfriend.
She is going into I-Pod. She still doesn’t have a way to call her daughter. In her first interview, she has a major breakdown.
Alan came in at the very end of last season and cause a shit ton of drama with Nate who has already told the bloods to give Alan a rough time. But this season, Nate seems to feel differently about Alan.
Andrew comes into 500 block without his dad. 500 thinks Andrew is a fed.
Alan’s commissary order is $50 and gets the attention of other inmates. He’s now a target. His cellie is trying to help him out. Apparently, Roo is the new Too Tall. Roo seems to think he can take everyone’s commissary. Roo and Monte were removed from the zone.
Matt is going into 600, that is where the older inmates go. Matt already regrets everything about signing up for this shit show.
He is so worried about his son being in another block, he is suffering. He makes an in with the brothers when a prayer circle is in, and he is welcomed.
Things will be even better next week when the final four people enter Fulton County Jail You will not regret following this show. Edited to add, the next season was on Thursday, the regular night for the show.
