Orange Is the New Black

After tones of commercials I finally gave in and decided to watch the TV show. I made the right decision and this comedy and drama show is absolutely fantastic.

We meet Chapman who has been sentenced to prison. We get to follow her life from inside the prison which is nothing like normal life. We also get to see flashbacks of how the convicts’ lives were before they ended up in the institution.

This was genius. Pure originality and I have never seen anything like it. The plot is amazing and the layout with having only thirteen episodes is great. It is a good concept since it’s enough time to figure out if you like the show and not to long for the show to become dull. The characters are incredible and the acting is really good.

The only bad things about the show is that I did not find it extremely entertaining. It is a lot of fun but I don’t exactly burst into a laughter fit every ten minutes when I watch it. The other bad thing is the flashbacks. It is interesting to see but at times I thought it was a bit too much and during the first episodes I found them slightly confusing. Either way this is a show that makes you immerse in it from the start and I will look forward to the second season. 9 / 10
