Synopsis


Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), a thirty-something woman who, by all appearances, has her life together, is suddenly sentenced to a 15-month prison stay at Litchfield Correctional Facility in Danbury, Connecticut, for transporting drug money a decade earlier per the request of her ex-girlfriend (Laura Prepon). Once behind bars, Piper contends not only with the "fishbowl" of prison life (where seemingly miniscule infractions can leave one starved, stalked, or worse), but the challenges of maintaining a long-distance relationship with her fiancé, Larry (Jason Biggs). ~ Tracie Cooper

    Orange is the new Black is a great series! It's a drama about a serious subject but has enough comedy in it to through you off and ease the tension a little. It is a "fish out of water" story about a normal young lady who did something stupid and it caught up with her years later. She ended up in prison which of course is a whole different world from her normal life. It shows how she learned to adjust to living behind bars with a large group of women. All the woman have very different personalities and they all have different reasons for being there. But it also shows that as much as people are different they are also alike. Everyone wants and needs love and friendship, no matter what their situation is, and both are developed during this show.

    Not for me.

    I know this show is very popular and has received a lot of kudos but it did absolutely nothing for me. I barely made it halfway through the season and just stopped. Maybe I couldn't relate to the characters, like any of them? Maybe it was just too gross and over the top for me? I don't know, I just know I wish I could return it for something else because I feel it was wasted money. I also did not enjoy the overall narrative, the way it moved back and forth through time then constantly changed focus on characters at inappropriate times making it difficult to follow, or even care in my opinion. To each their own but this was just, not for me.

    Jenji Kohan's newest endeavor, Orange is the new black, is a sitcom similar in concept to Weeds but based in a women's prison and out in the real world. The ordinary main character starts the story but it is the interaction of the supporting characters and their lives that really drives the show. Taylor Schilling is terrific as the main character Piper Chapman and the supporting cast is full of main line stars such as Jason Biggs, Laura Prepon, Kate Mulgrew, Taryn Manning, Pablo Schreiber, Natasha Lyonne, Laverne Cox, Uzo Aduba and many others. The comedy and dialogue is Kohanesque so if you liked Weeds give Orange a chance!

    Orange is the New Black is a television show for a new generation of viewers. As one of Netflix's flagship shows, it is meant to be consumed in one delicious gulp. It has everything you could want in a series: interesting and complex characters from all walks of life, a strong sense of place and world building, hilarious and heartbreaking writing, and a dynamic group of actors who are giving it there all every episode. It's one of my favorites and I had to own a physical copy just in case I ever decide to give up my Netflix subscription.

    Starts off a show about a soon to be married woman going to prison for a past crime that has caught up to her. It seems like its always going to be about her just trying to fit in but as the show continues it becomes more interesting to learn about her fellow inmates and their different cliques and how they all interact. Its a grand web of violence, sneakiness, affairs, corruption and just some weird stuff too. Despite the setting, there is a lot of good laughs and the characters are all great and you just want to know more about them.

    my brother mentioned this series to me 4 he learned about it from Netflix. I was intrigued and stated I will purchase the season once released on DVD.I spent the entire day to watch it in Marathon and was pleasantly surprised.I am familiar with the director for I own every season of weeds.I later found out this is a true story loosely based on a soccer mom and her experience in going to prison.it shows the humanity and that everyone has a story for she was certainly a fish out of water in that type of environment.I'm interested to see what happens in season 2

    Never watched Orange is the new black so I thought buying season 1 and season 2 for a long road trip would be great. It was a good watch, funny, interesting, a total chick flick but make sure you watch it when the kids are sleeping or if you are on a road trip like I was make sure you are wearing headphones with no kids sitting behind you its 100% an adult show but I enjoyed it. Its not as funny and interested as WEEDS was but it was still good.

    I did not see this when it was first televised but I heard all about it from reviewers and friends who said it was a much watch. After getting it and watching it in a binge I must agree. It is very real and funny like Weeds was. They are by the same folks so I can see the humor spilling over. The acting is very good and the characters are well developed and you will begin to make them a part of your team. Great shows for season 1. Loved it!!
