Orange Is The New Black follows Piper as a new inmate at a minimum-security federal prison for her crimes from ten years earlier running drugs with her ex-girlfriend. She show features a diverse cast from many walks of life and is even one of the first shows to accurately depict a transwoman. The show focuses on the struggle of life in a women’s prison. Everything from smuggling, pregnancy, safety, to abuse of power. All while managing to hold you in with a phenomenal story. It has become Netflix’s most-watched original series and for a good reason.
I rate this show as an 8.7/10. Season 5 just dropped on Netflix so it’s the perfect time to start your binge-watch.
