Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life changing prison can really be.
I'm a 33 year-old male, but it's not just my age. It's the REALNESS that comes from the characters, the writing, the direction, the casting, the stories.
Every show/movie in this genre tries to capture the awkwardness, the weird stuff (especially misunderstandings), the ups and downs that happen on a regular basis when you're just trying to live your life and navigate the craziness. This show does it more accurately and effectively than any show I've seen.
It's so well done that you can be a part of, and FEEL, everything. And this show makes me FEEL great! (Like how the intro to the Simpsons made me feel - an escape, levity, optimistic, happy).
Everything is tight. Every second has something to offer.
I miss it already.
