Orange is the New Black Reviews & Ratings

Fridays, 3:00 AM ET on Netflix

60 minutes

From "Weeds" creator Jenji Kohan comes Orange is the New Black, a women’s prison drama with comedy that takes no prisoners. Based on the acclaimed memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman, the series is about engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman, whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex results in her arrest and year-long detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper must trade her comfortable New York life with fiancé Larry, for an orange prison jumpsuit and a baffling prison culture where she is forced to question everything she believes about herself and the world at large. As she struggles to adjust to her new reality, she finds unexpected laughter, tears, conflict and camaraderie amidst an eccentric and outspoken group of inmates.

Completely deserving of all of the praise this Netflix original has received. The best showcase for women on TV.

An extremely well made TV show with a solid plot and compelling characters. It makes absolutely no sense, then that I just don't enjoy it like I think I should. Don't get me wrong it's still brilliant TV and I don't regret watching it and will definitely watch any future seasons but it's just not on the level of some other shows out there; most notably its Netflix original counterpart: House of Cards.
What I will say is that if you're looking for strong, and (more importantly in my opinion) realistic, female characters then look no further.

I can't imagine anyone not liking this show, it's so hilarious but also so emotional due to some amazing storylines. It also covers every social topic you could ever think of, mental health problems, transsexuals, homosexuals, rape, racism, etc and writes them all so well, so you see every side of the issue, it's truly impressive.

Highly recommend to anyone over 18 who doesn't mind seeing an array of nipples. This is my favorite show. It's got a genius way of moving along with the central plot while providing intriguing back-stories for the characters. Every episode has some insight into why your favorite characters are in prison, as well as the motives they have for acting the way they do. The plot is almost open for interpretation in a way. I think it's absolutely genius and a PERFECT combination of drama and comedy.

Awesome! One thing you should know when you start out: I believe you are meant to dislike Piper. Don't stop watching because you do, because other characters are so great. Even the once you'll dislike have great storylines. Worth the watch.

Well, for me it's nothing special but still worth a watch when you are tired or bored.

OITNB - CURRENT

In Jenji Kohan’s magnificent and thoroughly engrossing new series, Orange Is the New Black, prison is still the pits. But it is also filled with the entire range of human emotion and stories, all of which are brought vividly to life in a world where a stick of gum could ignite either a romance or a death threat.
