Don't even remember putting this series on my waiting list; so I was surprised when I opened the envelope: but pleasantly, as it turned out. Imagine one of the 'Sex in the City' girls suddenly being... Read moredropped in a womens' prison and having to socialize with 'crazies' and dangerous inmates in the most intimate of circumstances, with no avoidance possible. The characters are extremely well-drawn and varied. the casting is brilliant and the dialogue on a par! You never know what will happen next and nor does the central character. By disc 2, she's getting the hang of it though. I look forward to the next 2 discs and am not surprised we haven't had the series here in NZ.
Every sentence is a story
From the creator of "Weeds" comes a heartbreaking and hilarious new series set in a women’s prison. Based on Piper Kerman’s acclaimed memoir, "Orange Is the New Black" follows engaged Brooklynite Piper Chapman, whose wild past comes back to haunt her and results in her arrest and detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper trades her comfortable New York life for an orange prison jumpsuit and finds unexpected conflict and camaraderie amidst an eccentric group of inmates.
