All 13 episodes from the first season of the Netflix comedy drama adapted from Piper Kerman's memoir about her time spent in a women's prison. Taylor Schilling stars as Piper Chapman, who ten years previously transported drug money for her then girlfriend Alex Vause (Laura Prepon). Piper is now serving a 15-month sentence as a result. Though her fiancé Larry Bloom (Jason Biggs) is initially determined to support her through the ordeal, the challenges of prison life often cause problems in their relationship, especially since Alex is one of her fellow inmates. The episodes are: 'I Wasn't Ready', 'T*t Punch', 'Lesbian Request Denied', 'Imaginary Enemies', 'The Chickening', 'WAC Pack', 'Blood Donut', 'Moscow Mule', 'F**ksgiving', 'Bora Bora Bora', 'Tall Men With Feelings', 'Fool Me Once' and 'Can't Fix Crazy'.

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!
A fascinating look into the life inside a women's prison. Above all, this is interesting for the exploration of all the fellow inmates, giving you insight into their backgrounds and how they ended up in prison. The way so many different stories and indepth-character-personalities are all cobbled together neatly and effortlessly alongside the main story of the main character (Piper), is incredible. The writing is good, and the pacing of the episodes is quick. There is a ton of realistic emotional depth to this show, and it's amazing that's it's all based on a real story of an actual "Piper" and "Alex" - and the real life people look a lot like the actors playing them!
Other points to consider:
This is not a series for the sensitive, easily-offended nor for the prudish, so is definitely not for everyone. Never has an 15-rating (bordering on 18) for a series been more justified: it's gritty, full of swear words, full of sexual content that is often of a lesbian nature, and the content also includes drugs, horribley corrupt prison guards, mentally unstable inmates and other hardships of prison life.
It's classified as a comedy but I'd call it more of a drama because any humour is very subtle - more of a straight-faced "ha...", as opposed to a proper feel-good laugh-out-loud kind of humour. It's not exactly feel-good (if it were, I'd give it 5/5 rather than 4/5). The last episode ends on a particularly not-feel-good note.. but it's an interesting insight into a world many of us know little about and makes you realise that even convicted criminals are not all monsters - they're just people.
The series deserves to be praised for its vast array of interesting, three-dimensional characters as well as its clever use of flashbacks to further develop these characters. The central relationship between Taylor Schilling and Laura Prepon is also wonderful; the chemistry is apparent and I am anxious to see how this develops in future episodes.
The series also manages to blend comedy with drama and when you are not smiling and laughing, your eyes will be glued to the screen and your jaw will be wide open!
In summary, a series that is both amusing and exciting, with wonderful characters and a solid, intelligent script.
