'''Convicts''' do not fit comfortably into the popularity ladder. This is because, since they have been taken off the street and are - in theory - paying for their crimes, they don't necessarily have to be shown committing criminal acts. Or, when they do commit such acts, they are usually against fellow inmates - which can be seen as justified to some viewers. As a result, series set in {{prison}} can have wildly different tones, from harrowing to comedic.
