Orange Is The New Black (Netflix 2013, Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon)

Published

on

Comedy drama series Orange Is The New Black tells the story of Piper Chapman, a woman in her thirties who is sentenced to fifteen months in prison after being convicted of a drug smuggling offense that happened ten years previously. In prison Piper is reunited with Alex, the woman who led her there in the first place.

Another Netflix original series, one that has garnered massive positive critical appreciation. In fact so much that it easily one of the top ten most popular shows in the world. OITNB also pulls no punches when it comes to bad language, graphic sex and violence.

Like other Netflix shows the whole series is availble to view in one binge-hit. The theme tune by Regina Spektor is very cool too.
