The new Netflix original series "Orange is the New Black," is phenomenal. And I've only watched one of the 13 episodes. Others in the office, already addicted to the hilarious yet poignant, well written/scripted/acted series about a late 20s upper middle class white woman who goes to prison for a decade-old drug offense, say it only gets better.
It's from the creator of "Weeds," another addictive dark comedy/drama and stars Taylor Schilling and Jason Biggs. The characters and their situations are believable (ish) and entirely relate-able. Suddenly, chatter about the series, which was released earlier in July, is everywhere. Google it. You'll see. Then start watching. (Also, "House of Cards," if you haven't yet blown through that whole series). Oh, last week Netflix renewed "Orange is the New Black" for a second season. So, more to come.
