Orange is the New Black
« on: Jul 15, 2013 at 12:50 AM »


Created and executive produced by Jenji Kohan (“Weeds”) and based on the U.S. best-selling memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman, the comedic drama starring Taylor Schilling follows engaged-Brooklynite Piper Chapman (Schilling) whose decade-old relationship with drug-runner Alex (Laura Prepon) results in her arrest and year-long detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper must trade her comfortable New York life with fiancé Larry (Jason Biggs) for an orange jumpsuit and a baffling prison culture where she is forced to question everything she believes and form unexpected new alliances with a group of eccentric and outspoken inmates.

*********
I've watched 6 episodes so far and I can't get enough of it. When I read that it was a women's prison drama from the creator of Weeds and starred Taylor Schilling and Laura Prepon, I was immediately intrigued. It was mostly the "hot women locked up in jail part" that intrigued me but I did enjoy the first few seasons of Weeds so I really looked forward to this one. And it has been a fun ride so far. I'm really liking the characters and the storytelling. Taylor Schilling is great in this one as Piper. She's funny and so adorable here. And it doesn't hurt that she's topless together with Laura Prepon in the first 15 seconds of the 1st episode.

The entire 13-episode 1st season is now available on Netflix. I've only seen the first 10 episodes available for download, though.

Yup, it's a good one--saw the first three episodes so far. Wished they could've picked another actor other than Jason Biggs though, as he has all the emotional resonance of a cardboard cutout.

Orange is the New Black has attracted some known names into directing episodes; Jodie Foster directed the third episode, and Andrew McCarthy directed episodes 5 and 10.

The series has been renewed for a second season of 13 more episodes, which will begin production later this year.

Kate Mulgrew gained weight and is barely recognizable as Red Reznikov. Maybe I can't get over that she used to play the strong-willed Capt. Kathryn Janeway in Star Trek: Voyager series.
