Three seasons in to Orange is the New Black, and I’ve determined that Piper Chapman is the worst character on the show. It’s actually a good thing, though there’s hardly any basis for anything she’s doing, and she really doesn’t make a convincing lesbian.
Also, this show loves to go through stretches of making prison seem like it isn’t so bad. I have a feeling it’s pretty bad. And I doubt real female inmates allow for so many impassioned monologues from their peers without any beatdowns in response.
Still, this show runs circles around most of the slop on television.
