Orange Is The New Black is really a good show, and much different compared to other shows which are currently high rated. The writers don't need that long to build up the characters. This is what I don't like at the beginning of many shows, because most of the time this is the boring part - until the whole story starts to develop. In Orange Is The New Black you got kicked in right from the start. The actors are really good . All of them. And well written; and I got to admit that my favorite character is "Red". Not just because Kate Mulgrew played Captain Kathrin Janeway in Star Trek: Voyager, but because the character is build up so strong, and she's got so many facets. You also get to know her in more backflashes (that explains how the people got into the prison). Some TV shows are using backflashes as well to explain some things, and usually I find that annoying, because it is a hard cut in the current plot; but the director in Orange Is The New Black is doing that so well, that it doesn't me bother at all - just the opposite: I want to know why the women got in there. After watching the first three episodes I wrote that the show shouldn't be drama. It should be a comedy show. That is not true, after I watched the other episodes. Yes, there are funny scenes in it, but it defiantly got the strong drama parts as well. I highly recommend to give this show a try, because you might wanna love it!

Drama? No way! This show is sooooo funny! =) And the cover should be like this! http://www.serienjunkies.de/news/big/o/orange-the-new-black-43346_big.jpg

Best. Show. Ever. There's drama, a great story, humor, action, relationships. It just covers it all.

Fantastic series. From season 1 to 5, I have loved every single bit of it.

avatar

Great show, and overall a superb group of actors, Taylor Schilling is brilliant, and Uzo Abuda is utterly convincing. Great story line, and no one is sure what is around the corner. Riveting story line, and great comic drama. Great Entertainment. Just what we need.

avatar

Best surprise since Orphan Black. Watch this show, now! It's brilliant.

Great characters! First season amazing! Some really intense episodes with a lot of action in both main and side stories, however, mostly side-story plots. Main storyline quality: 7/10 Side storylines quality: 5/10 Characters: 8/10 Originality: 9/10 Acting, directing and technical quality: 9/10 Progression: 6/10 Consistency (low if mistakes in plot, or hail-mary changes etc.): 9/10 Intensity (cliffhangers, edge of seat and the like): 6/10

I just wanted to say that Suzanne was the best actress on the show. Btw i recommend to give this show a try, because it took me a while to start watching the show, i wasn't sure that i would going to like this type of show, where the 90% of the time they are at the same place, all just women, i was trying to imagine what type of content they would bring on the episodes that could be interesting... but i give it a try and now i'm here waiting for the release of the season 7 imagine what could be the final. And the show toutches in many type of real situations that could make you think a litle bit or question yourself, or maybe change your opinion in some topics, and you get some funny parts. Just watch the show come on... :D

This series runs from ridiculous to profound, crass to clever and salacious to touching. At the end of season 6 (I can't believe I haven't written a review before this), with at least one more season promised, it continues to swing to all the extremes. The thing that continually brings me back to this series, despite its pervasive low bar are the characters. I became attached to them. The writing and the performances made them unforgettable and endearing so that I cared what happened to them, most times despite themselves (S4 E12 was probably one of the most heartbreaking episodes ever written for television). The characters make you care enough to put up with the sewage you may need to wade through to find them. Because of that give and take, my episode ranking has fluctuated from 6 to 9 (with the exceptional 10), but I give this series a 7 (good) out of 10 overall. [Dramedy]. (WENTWORTH is a better prison drama, but then again, it doesn't try to be a comedy and a drama)

Should check out checkout Wentworth as well. Some bits feel similar but in general more realistic and gritty, and then it becomes evilly Machivellian. https://trakt.tv/shows/wentworth One of the best Aussie shows at the moment.
