Nothing ever feels forced or repetitive about the show and its confined setting. In fact, it feels like the restriction has spurred even more creativity from the writers this year. There’s a fear and a scrappy anger to the dialogue and interactions happening around the prison, even more so than before.
In its fifth season, the most important takeaway is that Orange Is the New Black” is a show that continues to take gutsy, filthy risks--port-a-potties are a major plot device this season, with all the scatological torture that implies --when it could be resting on its beige-uniformed laurels. It works.
Absolutely hilarious. This season is probably the funniest of them all, the comedy has always been good in Orange, but this time round they outdid themselves. As always, there's loads of whining from the purists, but don't be deceived, this season is as good as any other; yes, it does get a bit unrealistic at times, but it has always been that way, hasn't it? It's a TV show, not a documentary. If you're fan, then you've already seen it, if you haven't, you definitely should. There's not much of Piper and Alex, however, so be forewarned, they really take a backseat this season, which is another potential point of criticism, though it did not bother me that much because there are loads of other really strong characters.
Well, i really liked it.
I really dont see why this season isnt well received.
It is something different, but the essence of OITNB is still there.
I didnt like how they handled the Piscatella-Part, but the rest was pretty good.
This season was almost told in real time, with the 13 episodes taking place over the course of about days. ... It’s a choice that does elevate this season and give it new focus and directive. ... But, as the show has always struggled with tone, in later episodes the series delves far more into horror tropes than you might expect, in legitimately horrifying ways.
Viewers are likely to be just as polarized by the riot, which undermines the humanity of some of Litchfield’s inmates by showing them embracing violent vengeance. Like it or hate it, though, this season of the award-winning show manages to feel more relevant than ever.
The fallout, partly because of the size of the sprawling cast, partly because of the tonal shifts, sometimes within the same scene, can be jarring. Orange nails the dramatic moments. It’s the comedy that ranges from banter to slapstick and back that feels out of place, especially as the rioting wears on.
A few of the strands are engaging, particularly those involving the inmates led by Taystee (Danielle Brooks) who seek justice for Poussey, even if overacting is afoot in some of those scenes. But most of the strands are either dull because of the slightness of their plots or merely irritating.
Essa foi com certeza uma ótima temporada, tratando principalmente de temas como a humanidade. Assistindo essa série com a mente aberta, você com certeza irá se tornar uma pessoa melhor, muito obrigado OITNB por trazer mais uma temporada maravilhosa com ótimas reflexões.
The riots continue to conflicting results. On one hand it's correctional officer "talent show" is a comedic gem and the power shift into chaos is a nail biting experience . But majority of it loses it's steam and feels monotonous in the backdrop of the riots which go on for way too long.
Que impotencia da haber esperado tanto esta nueva temporada y que haya resultado tan decepcionante. No encuentro similitud alguna con las temporadas anteriores. En ellas encontramos mucho dinamismo, alti-bajos, problemas reales carcelarios: alimentarios, de aislamiento, de amor, amistades, etnicos; esta nueva temporada parece su-real y monótona, ademas de que solo se desarrolla en 3 días (a diferencia de las otras que transcurre en tiempos mas prolongados) y se reitera en cada capitulo el problema del motín. Los nuevos personajes tienen mucho protagonismo, y no atrapan como los originales. Las escenas entre Piper y Alex son superficiales, salvo por sus flashbacks y la pedida de matrimonio, que seguramente hayan sido las escenas favoritas de todo fan de oitnb. Me hubiese gustado que haya más escenas entre ambos personajes, aprovechando el hecho de que poseen mas libertad que en las temporadas anteriores. Debo criticar también que las escenas de Suzanne ya empezaban a cansarme, y personajes como Red y Nicky no tienen tanto peso, a pesar de ser de los favoritos.
Aun así destaco cosas positivas: el protagonismo de Leanne y Angie que siempre nos hacen reir, el hecho de que hayan incluido términos como Vauseman y Flaritza, nuevos flashbacks de Piper y Alex, la escena de la pedida de matrimonio, el excelente maquillaje en personajes como Humphrey y Maureen, los divertidos diálogos entre Flaca y Maritza.
No hay mucho mas por decir. A esperar nuevamente un año para ver la nueva temporada que, espero, no nos decpecione nuevamente.
I could not get through the first episode.... the "dark" plot highlights the limits of the hammy overacting, and the limits of the whole OINB idea. i just kept going "ugh" at ever obvious trope and tic of each character... It's ****'s been over but last year I didnt want to admit it
