Differences in the Seasons

So far, there have been two seasons of Beyond Scared Straight.  In the first season, there were 7 episodes.  In the second season, there were 5 episodes.  I have watched every episode and I feel that season two is much more dramatic than season one.  It seems as if inmates and correctional officers have gotten much more aggressive and have taken intimidation to another level.  Is it coincidence that the inmates and correctional officers in the jails and prisons in season 2 are simply more antagonistic than the ones from season 1?  Or did the producers of the show have something to do with making the show more dramatic to raise ratings?

You can judge for yourself…

Season 1, Episode 3 – Corcoran, CA (state prison)

Originally aired Feb 27, 2011

Inmates are more like mentors and the correctional officers are stern and authoritative

 

Season 2, Episode 4 – Oklahoma County, OK (county jail)

Originally aired Sep 8, 2011

Both inmates and correctional officers get in the faces  of the teens and yell into their ears
