Orange is the new black


No, this is not about fashion as the title may suggest. Not clothing fashion, but TV series fashion. "Orange is the new black" (OITNB) is the netflix TV series everybody is raving about lately. Like this ridiculously funny video "#Hashtag" with Jimmy Fallon & Justin Timberlake You've got to see it, I'm telling you.

Back to OITNB, the series is based on a true story, "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)" (source IMDb ). Here is the trailer also:



Some say it's too much nudity, others are complaining about the language or how Christianity is depicted. I say it's entertaining, funny and it's my first series about life in prison. Netflix says it's a provocative new series on life behind bars.

It's definitely not my Netflix favourite but I think it's worth giving it a try. And just like in Suits, the music from the opening credits is so catchy: Regina Spektor "You've got time". So, I'm curios, if you decide to watch the series, do you like it?
