Three thugs; Carlin (Butch in Dog Pound), Davis, and Angel, are all taken into custody and brought to a good ol' British Borstal (an American Juvenile Correctional Facility in Dog Pound). What they proceed to discover is that where they have been sent is in fact a [[WretchedHive Wretched Hive]] of Racism and Violence, and corrupt wardens/officers. And that's just the beginning. From then on, [[FromBadToWorse it gets worse.]] Much, ''MUCH'' worse.

* GokartingWithBowser: One memorable scene in ''Scum'' has one of the guards give Archer his coffee and actually engage in a serious conversation with him. Unfortunately, Archer oversteps the intelligence and tolerance of the guard, and his argument against the entire system is taken as a personal insult.

* HandOrObjectUnderwear: During the beginning of ''Dog Pound'', the viewers are treated to all three male leads essentially naked, save for them cupping their privates with their hands. [[JustifiedTrope Justified, however]]: they ''are'' being checked into a Juvenile Correctional Facility, and ''would'' need to be strip-searched.

* ViolentGlaswegian: [[AvertedTrope Averted]], due to casting. Originally, Carlin was intended to be from Glasgow, but the director was so impressed with Ray Winstone's audition, that he dropped that and cast him.

* DawsonCasting: Played straight with Ray Winstone (both Theatrical and BBC teleplay versions of ''Scum''), David Threlfall (BBC Teleplay), Mick Ford (Theatrical version), Adam Butcher, and Shane Kippel (both ''Dog Pound''); all were 20 or over during filming of their respective versions. One [[AvertedTrope aversion]] occurred with Julian Firth in the 1979 theatrical version; he actually ''was'' a teenager.

* ParentalIncest: In ''Dog Pound'', one of Davis's stories this. It's most likely bull, especially given his actual interactions with his mother.
** It was actually the mother of the girl he was with at the time.

* ImprovisedWeaponUser: One of the reasons Carlin is such a dangerous fighter is that he doesn't hesitate to use things like iron bars and a sock filled with snooker balls.

Added DiffLines:

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Butch in DogPound. Although not a jerk, he is a violent criminal but he's easily a character with the most redeeming qualities and even assaults people who do terrible things to several inmates for no reason.
