Audience Reviews for Orange Is the New Black: Season 5

  • Dec 19, 2020
    I liked seasons one through four, but season five is tedious.
  • Feb 08, 2020
    It's the most epic season of the entire series. Very enticing, entertaining, chaotic,captivating and anarchist! Very underrated!
  • Sep 04, 2019
    Very bad final season
  • Jul 28, 2019
    personally, my favorite season. i love how it takes place over a small amount of time.

    To be honest with you, this is not my favourite series. I never really got the hype around it all. I also wasn't very excited about this new season and watched the first half without a lot of enjoyment. I must say though, the second half was pretty good and I actually enjoyed it quite a bit! I think all the characters grew this season and that's the main thing that's happening, that's what I felt like was the focus on. Although it's not my favourite show, I enjoyed this season and I enjoy the characters and liked getting to know all of them better. To be honest with you, this is not my favourite series.

    Didn’t like this season, the riot just went on too long and it seems they weren’t creative enough
  • Aug 14, 2018
    I just rewatched this and I have to say this might be the best season of the show. I miss Poussey, obviously, but the writing for Taystee's character and Danielle Brooks' incredible portrayal absolutely amazed me. They balanced the sad and intense scenes with funny and relatively light-hearted ones, and they introduced new dynamics that showed the audience more about the characters.
  • Aug 14, 2018
    I enjoyed previous seasons, but this season is by far the most boring season of any show I've ever watched. Very drawn out and slow and pointless.
  • Jun 27, 2018
    Perhaps "Orange Is The New Black" has lost public and credibility, but is not unloved. Changed but not to a side 100% attractive
  • Jun 06, 2018
    It is becoming boring. They are milking the show, irritating and commercial. lots of nonsense happening :( I hope they explore the journey of inmates when they are released from jail to show that real life is a big prison.
