100 Words or Less: On ‘Orange is the New Black’

Orange is the New Black

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.
