Orange is the New Black (is the New Netflix Series to Watch)


If you’re looking for a new addictive show to watch instead of writing your metaphysical poetry essay, or dressing like a pirate, or whatever you Berkeley people do in your free time,  check this fun times jail series out. This new Netflix original series follows a preppy upper middle class woman (Piper Chapman) through her quirky, raw, and far from glamorous time in the pen after she is turned in by her drug dealer ex-girlfriend. I’ll be honest, the protagonist Piper (Taylor Schilling) and her whiny fiance Larry Bloom (Jason Biggs) often inspire the urge to punch something…namely them in the face; however, the supporting characters make the show as addicting as anything Piper’s ex-girlfriend may have dealt back in the day.  There’s Red, the Russian Mofia wife who runs the kitchen with an iron fist yet is still endearingly vulnerable and who’s major fault is that she care’s too much; Nicky Nichols– a brash, quick witted, ex-addict lesbian who seems to have just run out of F#&*$ to give; and my personal favorite, Suzanne “Crazy Eyes” Warren (played by the wonderful Uzo Aduba)– the most adorably sincere pseudo-psychopath with severe anger management problems and a propensity to quote Shakespeare you will EVER meet! If you haven’t watched it yet, give it a go. The entire first season is available on Netflix with rumors of the second seasons release happening as early as spring 2014.  Why are yous till reading this? What are you waiting for? Go check it out! 🙂
