This year itOrange is the New Black season three is one big blur for me right now. I went through it so fast it felt like a 12 hour movie. This year it took so many unexpected turns and developed character to so many people you thought you already knew. I am glad to say that the drama was much lighter this season. The jokes hit the ear so naturally they feel like something you would hear you or your friends say. I also thought it was a great directional move to focus almost completely on the conflict that happens within the prison. It makes sense that characters that have never spoken to each other previously would engage in normal human fray. There being only about 250 people there it would be crazy not to. The best thing that the show has to offer is of course back. Yes, the back stories. Except this year they don't just focus on how an inmate got into prison, they even add to some characters back stories to show why they act and respond the way they do. I am disappointed that since a writer can only do so much with Piper(since it seemed everything we needed to know about her was already revealed)she is now pushed out of the spotlight and she and what she's involved with seem more like a side story that we mildly care about than more the main arc that supposed to hold the show together. Also, since there are even more additions to an already hefty cast multiple back stories need to be fit into one episode to the point where it starts to feel cluttered with intention of a 50 minute runtime which takes me out of it. But, nothing can take away from one of the best season finales I have have ever seen. Sorry about the hype but it left me with fulfillment and wonder without the gimmick of dread that most TV shows use to make me come back(okay just a little). This will be another year with much anticipation, but in the end a guaranteed pay off.

Throughout the entirety of season two it never failed to make me laugh, feel angry, or feel sorry for the characters I have known for only 26 episodes. The character development is outstanding and all of the actors give nothing below a stellar performance. The mix of dark comedy and drama makes the tone right for every scene. What makes this particular 13 episodes even more satisfying is the fact that I can feel satisfied about the season I just witnessed and aren't going off the charts about that I have to wait months for episodes. That's the advantage about getting all the episodes at once, you don't get used to missing it every week or more. You can watch and enjoy. It is hard not to recognize that this show is something special and not something you watch when you have time, but crave the time you spend watching it. This is by far the most enjoyable show in a long time and I hope it stays that way.… Expand
