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.

I came to this series with high hopes - everyone seemed to be raving about it. And came out rather disappointed - not because it was badly made, or badly acted, I just thought it was rather, well, ordinary. A series like this relies on the quality of the story and the writing, and I found both rather mediocre. You need to be able to engage with the characters, even if that engagement involves active dislike, but for me I was pretty well indifferent to most of them, it all seemed a bit by numbers and so what. Not enough story to flesh out one series, let alone two. And a better set of writers would have done away with the side character flashbacks - for the main character they were fine because it was her story, but the other flashbacks just came across as padding. I didn't hate it, but it left me cold.

After hearing so many good things about this series and people highly recommending it I thought i would buy it, but I didn't think it was that great. Nowhere near as good as everyone's has said it was. It wasn't awful, I still watched the whole thing but I Wouldn't recommend it

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!

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.

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!
