Orange is the New Black: Recommended Viewing


Piper Chapman: "I'm not me."
Crazy: "You gotta start from the inside out or else you'll step on the clean."

One word for the TV Series, created by Jenji Kohan, that I am currently hooked on - FABULOUS!!!

           I don't know how I started watching this show but one episode led to the other and I was hooked.
With characters like Taystee, Red, Poussey, Healy, Crazy Eyes and several more there is not a moment of boredom in this flick. I'm almost done with the first series and I can't wait for them to start airing the next season. My only worry is what will I watch after this? Not too many series have caught my attention lately, like this one. And I'm not even a TV person addicted to serial after serial on the idiot box. I do use it as entertainment once in a while but there really are times when if you move the TV from my room and I wouldn't even miss it. 
Maybe because my ankle's hurt and I can't do much outdoorsy stuff right now that I tune in on the idiot box more than usual.

The show is so addictive, I've been watching it 12 days straight. And, seriously there is nothing 'straight' about this show. I have one more episode to go and that's it I have to wait till 2014 for the next season. God!
And why does it make prison look so attractive, man! Ok. Did I just say that?
Another plus is that women run this show, they make up the main characters. It's all about us. Yeah, that's what I'm talking about. Not only is it rich with stories, the portrayal is  frank with emotions that are real. You just have to watch it. I watched it so much that I've started swearing every time I stub my toe(happens often) that I had to stop myself and say,"Bitch, please!" Eerr....what I meant was, I had to consciously stop mouthing filth. It just gets into your head and you start talking like one of them inmates.
I am not going to discuss the story line because you just have to find out if you like it yourself; just wanted to shout out because I didn't hear of it from any of my friends and so I can see myself spreading the word now. You might already be watching it but if you aren't, check it out.
ps- Maybe you might want to watch this alone. There are some explicit scenes that you might not want kids around you watching or your mom seeing you watch lest you want your head whacked with a flying ninja book that comes out of nowhere.
Don't carry any suitcases on behalf of anyone( Especially at airports. I've been asked to several times when I was younger and in college). That's how sh@# happens.

    1. I hate when shows that we love watching get cancelled. It's annoying. I haven't seen Happy Endings but I will watch it after this.

  5. I haven't heard of this series. But it looks great!. Actually, I am also exactly like you when it comes to the idiot box. I don't sit in front of it all the time nor do I miss it when it's not around. Also some series does make me mouth filth. It happens involuntarily :(. But thankfully not when am around other people. We are similar in so many ways!

    1. I don't think they will ever film this in the UAE because of the unacceptable content, read filth and vulgarity. If at all they do, then they will have to delete half of the scenes. I remember they used to do that when I was young. Now I am not sure. I really didn't watch any tv when i went home so i don't know how it is now. it's nice to know we have so much in common hahhaha
