Review of Orange Is the New Black

Story: 6

Based on the story of Piper Kerman's book about her year spent incarcerated after being found guilty of drug trafficking.

Seasons 1,2 & (3 at a push) should have been enough to develop the story and also an end to Piper's journey.  At least it would have been a programme that audience's would remember for its good viewing and enjoyable story lines and retain credibility

Created by Jenji Kohan

Visuals: 8

Sound: 10

'You've Got Time' by Regina Spektor is catchy as hell & its probable that you'd remember the lyrics better than trying to remember what the storylines were in season  5.

Character: 8

 Recurring characters are often more likeable than the main  

Notice the background characters in earlier seasons develop*

Enjoyment: 6

1,2 & 3 are probably the 'better' seasons & 4 is where it begins to disintegrate as a story. Too much unessary dialogue with too much focus on a backstory that doesn't need to shown in detail as the audience would have already worked it out etc.

Unfortunately Netflix have commissioned it for ANOTHER 2 seasons therefore more future plots that do not make even half decent viewing and resembles 'Porridge' rather than gritty dark drama.

Initially, critics drew comparisons  with Wentworth in it's early seasons as both premiered in the same year (2013).
