Orange Is The New Black

Orange Is The New Black

Stumbled upon this TV show during my Internet trawling 2 days ago. The first Season has ended and the next isn't till 2014

Saw a few episodes and really liked it

The story of Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), a woman in her thirties who is sentenced to 15 months in prison after she is convicted of a decade old crime of transporting money for her drug-dealing girlfriend (Laura Prepon)

It's a dramedy (drama-comedy) you can identify with

From the likeable protagonist, Piper who is a debutante but has to blend with the seedy characters in Prison to survive (think bred in uppity Victoria Island meeting the Dregs from Ajegunle...interior! ) to dysfunctional characters and other incongruous pairings:

like Crazy Eyes ( Uzo Aduba- that's a very Nigerian name, by the way), the Tranny( Laverne Cox), the 'boss' in Prison, Red ( Kate Mulgrew)and dodgy Prison Officials

It's a multidimensional cast and you're taken back in each episode to get to know each of their stories.

Highly Recommended!!
