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.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

An amazing look into the world of jail in America for women, plenty of lesbian relationships, and a myriad of great characters to become attached to, each with a unique story that slowly gets told as the seasons play out. Plenty of shock value moments in there too.
