I came late to Orange is the New Black, partly because when I dipped into the first few episodes last year it seemed like a fairly conventional prison dramedy. But the more I watched, the deeper the characters got, with the final episodes leaning towards heavy drama and real consequences.
In short, its very good and you really should watch it.
Especially now, as Season 2 is almost here. In it, upper class bitch Taylor Schilling will continue her adventures in being really condescending at Litchfield prison while the more interesting characters gobble up all the best scenes.
For a taste, here’s a trailer for the second season which is basically spoiler free and gives us a hint that Chapman may finally get grip this year.
It’s going to be great.
Orange is the New Black Season 2 will arrive in its entirety on Netflix on June 6th 2014.
