My thoughts on Orange Is The New Black season 1-3

So I just finished the last episode of Orange Is The New Black (atleast, those that are now out). This is a very hyped up series, so I wanted to share my thoughts on it.

 

Here's the trailer in case you've no idea what it's about:

 

 

I liked the show in general. However, I was shocked with the many sex scenes and some were so disgusting that I had to turn of the noise and do something else. There were also some characher (cough, Piper, cough) that nnoyed me so much, damn. Everytime she made really, really stupid and annoying decisions and was really selfish at most times. Like a friend (more than a friend) got the news she got out of jail in two days, and because that friend did something ''to her'', she made sure that that friend doesn't go out of jail. And her relationship with Alex, like wtf. So many things are just so wrong about that relationship that I can't even.

 

Season 1 was in my opinion the best season and then the last few episodes of season 3 (if we don't talk about Piper). That rape story just broke my heart and it was so touching and real. On ther other hand, she also just could've kicked him in his balls, you know. I loved some characters (Tricia, Tiffany, Nicky, Brook and Stella), some were okay and some I didn't like at all. I also love the fact that each episode told us something about all the characters. So one episode it focused on one background story and the other about someone else.

 

This is still an important show, but the fact that it took me over three months over just 30 episodes, must say enough. (aka Orphan Black is a much better show ha). Oh and I don't it's appropriate for those who are not 16 yet ha.

 

I'm still going to watch season 4 though (when this one comes out, but I think I'm going to wait 'till the entire season comes out. I just role that way haha).

 

What is your opinion about Orange Is The New Black?

Orange Is the New Black - Piper Kerman

I liked this book so much more than I expected I would! I've watched the Netflix series, in which Piper is an unbearable brat. But the Piper who eloquently relates her memoir doesn't afford herself any coddling, is straightforward in accepting her responsibility, and uses her story to reflect on her privilege in the face of a broken and corrupt prison system. Ultimately, this book does so much important work in bringing light to our penal system and how little justice is ever served.

Orange Is the New Black
Orange Is the New Black - Piper Kerman I think a lot more of effort could have been put into the writing of this book. It was technically correct but the way an essay you make for school, full of data and focusing on the wrong things... For me it became dull and loooong. I wish I knew more about other people mentioned here. Didn't really say anything to me. (will probably do a better review later on)

Orange Is the New Black - Piper Kerman I thought this was pretty interesting and educational as to what the system is really like. I'm interesting in watching the show now.
