I would say that this series started out really strong, but in the last two seasons (season 5 and season 6) have been really disappointing.  I would argue that pretty much nothing happened in season 6 that was noteworthy.  The beginning of the series was great because it was new and like no other show out there.  However in the last few seasons it got almost out of focus, they kept bringing in new characters that you had no connections with and wanted you to immediately be involved in their story line.  The back stories are also one of the highlights in the first few seasons, really investigating and finding out why each person is in prison in the first place.  Over time though the back stories become diluted and don't add anything to overall plot.  If you want to binge this, it is bingeworthy but only to a certain point and then it starts coming apart.

One of my favorite shows! Some of the episodes were a little slow, but for the most part, it's drama filled and highly entertaining. At first, I was pretty annoyed the series strayed so far from the actual story (it's adapted from a book), but tried to get that out of my head and when I did, I really enjoyed the show. Obviously not for everyone, and an over embellished version of prision, but totally fun to watch!

This is a pretty nice show which focuses on something that is usually overlooked. I love how well everything ties together. You get to see the dynamics of prison, how relationships/groups form, the ugly truth and the simple pleasures. The show humanizes inmates and lets you see that everyone faced certain circumstances throughout their life which led to the moment of their arrest. It's highly addictive and I recommend it hundred percent. (Reason for giving 4/5 instead of 5/5: character development in later seasons.)

Jenji Kohen is terrific at writing shows about ordinary women put in situations outside of their comfort zone and typical realms.
Orange is the New Black offers brilliant story lines, well developed characters, lots of envelope pushing and action. If you are looking for a show that will keep you wondering what will happen next then you need to check this show out.
*WARNING* This show if addictive and starting this show may lead to days off binge watching.

Bottom line: if you liked weeds, you'll like this.

Love this show to death. I religiously watch every season when it comes out and follow this show to the ends of the earth. All the characters are amazing. They are witty, smart, and colorful, which is something you need in a really good show in my mind. I would have to admit that a couple of my favorite characters are Taystee and Gloria. Red is pretty awesome too. The reason why I have to take it down a star is because the plotline has really gone 'out there.' I love this show and will still watch it, but I wish the show would start to mellow down on the plotline. It's starting to remind me of some of the excessive stunts ABC does to some of it's shows.

I really liked the first season of this show, but, for some reason, I really lost interest during the second season. Like I said, the first season is amazing! It's funny, serious, and entertaining all at the same time. After that, though, it felt like the show changed, like it was trying to cater to the fans or something. Give the first season a watch, and then decide what to do from there.

This series is sooo funny! I got into it not too long ago and I have bench watched every season and I have been absolutely obsessed with it! The characters are well played and the representation of the justice system is well portrayed. It’s also really sad. I found it really easy to connect to the characters and get attached to them as well. It was a rollercoaster of emotions as I absolutely loved every minute of it!

I absolutely love this show. I have kept up from the very firat season release date. I finish every season, even with my busy schedule, within a week at most. I love the characters and how each has their own stories. It shows that just because they are criminals, it doesn't mean that that defines them as a person. They have a family, goals, and a history of their own. I am so hooked and connected to every season!

Always something else new you missed the other 5 times you watched it lol, love the actors and the reality of the show. Thinking about those things that might really happen maybe in real life and the unexpected turns just an all around good show we are so excited for the new season to start.

This quickly became one of my favorite series after the first season. Every year I am so mad about watching the last episode and so happy when it's time to release another. There are so many twists and turns, plenty of comedy and a whole lot of personality. It's a great show and I'm so happy to see them continuing the episodes and always keeping the quality.
