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.

Orange is the New Black is about an early thirty something woman (Piper) who, at first glance, has her act together - she's got her own business with her best friend and it's really starting to ramp up and she is engaged to be married. But then, something she did in her twenties comes back to haunt her, and she is sentenced to fifteen months in prison. Season 1 begins the story just as she starts her prison sentence, and parts of her backstory are revealed through flashback.

I purchased this DVD set for my boyfriend, who loves the show (he watched it on Netflix) and was enthusiastic to have me watch it even though we cancelled our Netflix account. His fondness for the show, he says, is for the fact that "it's not another crime/thriller/drama that focuses on the doings of middle age white men"... (which he has a penchant for anyway ;-) ).

I didn't share his fondness for the show at the start. It's entertaining enough, though I thought it rather lacked emotion and Piper's character was grating. Notably, I found some of the other characters MUCH more compelling than Piper (while they dedicate a fair whack of screen time to her story, there are other girls she meets in the prison and some of their stories are revealed, too) . However, one particular episode near the end of the season (or series if you're from the UK) just made the main storyline fall into place for me, and now, while I still don't LOVE it, I do really like it. Piper is still a bit annoying, but maybe that will come to a turn in the next season! I would definitely recommend this show for a mix of comedy and drama, and if you like character driven shows than I think you'd enjoy this too.

I first heard about Piper Kerman on 'Fresh Air' in 2009 when she was publicizing her new book about her life I. A woman's prison. I read the book, and found it a telling picture of a young woman from a very good family, educated at Smith, found herself caught up in an affair with a woman and moving money around gated world for a big time crook. She ended nip in a woman's prison in Connecticut. Her life in those 18 months is very well documented, and joe has become a televised series on a Netflix.

This is the perfect vehicle for this type of story. A story rich I. The various shades f color, races, nationalities and all started by a young white woman. This is their storyline rising and we have been able to see the inside of their lives in prison and on the outside in the real world.

Junji Kohan is the creator and writer of this series showing Piper's life and interweaving everyone else's stories therein. We have a privileged white woman being put in prison, Piper Chapman, played by taylor Schilling. The show evolves into a character ensemble about the women prisoners. The actors except for Laura Prepon and Kate Mulgrew are all new to us, black, brown white and yellow. This is a story of every woman who has gone wrong and what occurs inside the prison walls. We also meet Piper's fiancé, Larry, played by Jason Biggs, and his life as he tries to soldier on, supporting Piper and finding his life. And, then there are the Correctional Officers, their stories and their lives. The female warden who is a witch and who may have some sorry of questionable activities on the side.

I am in the middle of Year 2 of this series, and it gets better very quickly. I love this series, realistic, funny, sad and true life all the way. The writing is the best I have seen, superb!

I had signed upto Netflix for a free trial to finish watching Breaking Bad as I only had the first four seasons on DVD. Once finished I was suffering from Breaking Bad withdrawals. I found Orange is the New Black on Netflix and me and the wife have watched all but the last episode of season one. It's quirky, sad, intelligent, quite rude but often very funny. I love the different characters and the way it often skips back in time to their lives before prison and the fact that most of them had pretty normal lives before their incarceration. It is great to watch the interaction between the characters and the politics of prison life. A real breath of fresh air and stands up to Breaking Bad in my humble opinion. Season 2 is due out on Netflix on June the 9th and season 3 has just started filming.
The only reason I am on Amazon is that I wanted to see if it was on DVD because it is going to be in a few Christmas stockings this year for definite.
Buy it and watch it, you will not regret it!! Especially if you enjoyed Breaking Bad. Hopefully if it becomes a great success there will be more seasons, happy days!

Ok, nothing special, and shame about the acting quality. Not in the same league as Breaking Bad at all, and I can't see how anyone can draw any parallels. Watched the 1st series and not interested in watching any more.

This is beyond doubt the best tv show i have seen in years bar game of thrones.

Piper is engaged to Larry and gets arrested and has to surrender to prison for a crime she committed 10 years prior.

She was in a relationship with the very stunning Alex who asked her to carry money into Brussels for her international drug running business.

Piper is a very well to do girl, bought up by rich people, was a debutante etc and so finding herself adjusting to prison life is actually quite funny.

There are some fabulous supporting characters in this which in some instances have more screen time than the leads,

Nicole, the red haired lesbian, Miss claudette, the voodoo killer, pornstache the pervy guard, healy the judgemental counsellor, red the russian mob lady who runs the kitchen, sophia the transgender ex fireman, taystee the poor black girl off the streets, crazy eyes who decides that piper will be her prison wife, daya the hispanic girl who doesnt speak spanish and falls in love with a young guard, boo the softy, poussey the act tough gangster, and tiffany i am jesus christ reincarnated.

There is so much going on all the time and in the beginning you think all of the other characters are the mean girls and what transpires throughout the show is that these women are making the best of a bad situation, but pipers transformation into nasty girl is by far the most spectacular.

Rude, very graphic, funny, emotional, gut wrenching and extremely well written.

Not sure of the comparison to breaking bad however as its nothing like it in any way and so just wanted to make a point of that before you bought it because if you buy it and expect more of the same you will be very disappointed.
