After a disappointing third season of the unexpectedly amazing show, “Orange is the New Black,” I wasn’t in a rush to watch season 4. I noticed it was available, but I was in the middle of some other things and then I went on vacation and then … well, I finally started it a couple of weeks ago.
And all I can say is … Orange is the New Black is BACK! Better than ever. Honestly, season 4 is the best season so far, with more ups and downs than I knew what to do with. From the very first episode to the very last, I loved it!
So, one of the problems with season 3 was Piper’s insane new power trip thing. Well, that got worse but then … well, she’s not really the star of the show anymore.
The prison itself continues to reel from the management of its corporate overlords, culminating in an event that will shock you. Meanwhile, race relations are worse than ever, tension between inmates and guards is worse than ever, the crazy inmates are crazier than ever. And oh yeah, Alex kicks things off by killing someone and getting an education from another inmate in how to dispose of a body. So, that was fascinating. 🙂
If you were disappointed with season 3, forgive it and move on! I promise, you won’t be disappointed.
If you haven’t watched Orange is the New Black at all … where have you been for the past 4 years?????
