If you lined up all the mugshots for all the characters Lee's played over the years, I wonder how far they would reach....


SO! New Lee was on my TV again over the weekend, this time in the season premiere of "Elementary," yet another show I've never seen before that I was watching only for Lee. At least this time, I was able to pick up on the concept fairly quickly, i.e., quirky Sherlock and Dr. Watson vs. bad guys.

Unfortunately, while the epiosde itself was fine, it wasn't exactly the best showcase for Lee's talents. He essentially had three scenes, 98% of which he spent sitting behind an interrogation desk. And those scenes basically consisted of 5 minutes of Sherlock & Watson telling him their crime theories, to which Lee would basically say "You're wrong," and then Sherlock & Watson would spend another 5 minutes telling him why they weren't. (Where was my I'M NOBODY'S BITCH moment?)

Consequently, there isn't anything to really re-cap, except for Lee looking very, very pretty. But, hey, that's important, too!

What would happen if the worlds of Oz and Harry Potter collided?

Suppose Tim McManus's bright idea of dividing inmates into basic gangs (the Aryans, the Muslims, the Italians, etc.) turned out to be a big failure. (Surprise, surprise, I know!) So, maybe, Tim decides to group the inmates according to the houses of Hogwarts instead? Perhaps he knows Albus Dumbledore and asks to borrow the Hogwarts Sorting Hat, the magical object that is used to sort new students into one of four houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw, or Slytherin.

Which Oz inmate would be sorted into which house? I think that people's thoughts on the subject and their answers could be very interesting!

So, I am asking any fans of both Oz and Harry Potter to fill out the following polls to indicate who they think belongs where. To start things off, I have chosen a diverse mix of 10 inmates, trying to include representatives from most of the original gangs, people who were on the show the longest, and/or the most popular characters within the Oz fandom. I'm planning on at least one more set of polls for additional prisoners, as well as another one just for staff, so if you don't see you're favorite guy on here, don't be upset! (After all, there were A LOT of characters on this show.)

Have fun with it! After completing the polls, please feel free to explain or discuss your decisions in the comments! Or, just jump into any discussions without taking the polls! Or, just take the polls! (Hey, who doesn't enjoy the thrill of clicking tiny little boxes?)

To help keep things organized, I'm going to create separate comment threads for discussing individual characters, keeping in mind that some overlap is bound to happen.

Please respect everyone's thoughts and ideas! Remember, there are no right or wrong answers here! If you simply think that everyone belongs in Slytherin, that's fine! If you think Vern belongs in Gryffindor, well.... that's okay! (But I would sure love to hear your rationale for that in the comments!)

Finally, when everything is said and done, feel free to use the results as a springboard to generate your own Oz/Harry Potter crossover fic or art! That would Ozsome!

So, let's get to it! As a reference guide, here is a brief list of the values held by the students in each house:

Gryffindor values courage, bravery, nerve, and chivalry.
Hufflepuff values hard work, patience, justice, and loyalty.
Ravenclaw values intelligence, creativity, learning, and wit.
Slytherin values ambition, cunning, leadership, and resourcefulness.
