Orange Is the New Black: Season 2 Reviews

  • Oct 09, 2019

    Orange Is The New Black routinely pays homage to its form, by referencing books throughout the entire Netflix original series. After the first season, the show heavily diverges from the truth of the memoir it was based on, though the show still makes an effort to honor books by including them in the characters lives. Not only do inmates rely on story to get through their incarceration, but their incarceration becomes a story (ie. Orange Is The New Black: A Memoir by Piper Kerman). OITNB may weave a tall tale, but a tale that is rooted in truth. Although the lives of Chapman and the other inmates depicted on the show are fictitious, they are based on real people in true situations. The show brings to light real issues that exist within the prison system, and educates us while entertaining us.

By grouping all of the worst-case scenarios in a Murphys-Law sort of way, the show educates people about prison life, laws, and serves as a sort of guide on How-To avoid prison.

    Even with a somewhat meandering first half, Orange is the New Black proves its worth with even more character depth and an incredible recognition of its viewers wants and needs, and how to constantly subvert their expectations.

    Great show, some flashbacks are pretty morbid and preachy. Lots of laughs and shocks.

    Season 2 of Orange is the New Black remains just as engrossing, funny and entertaining as it's previous season - and introduces a whole batch of new characters to love and get invested in.
