ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK: SEASON FIVE REVIEWED

“Orange is the New Black” won me back with the fifth season. Following up on Poussey’s death at the end of Season 4, the ladies’ anger hits fever pitch. They’ve taken over the Litch and they’re making their demands known. But, these demands are torn between the prison’s factions and ultimately they create a society where people remain ignored. The outside world sensationalizes their struggle, as their family awaits word about their condition. Still, it works as a mini-promo for Flamin’ Hot Cheetos.

Given the split focus between characters and season long drag to resolution, I feel the need to watch next season for a proper sense of resolution. That being said, I feel like I got the first Bendis style Netflix show. There was maybe 6 episodes of content, but everything got stretched out to keep the drama going. Plus, what are they going to do with Piper and Alex next season? It’s not like you can have a lesbian wedding behind bars.

What makes it so funny is that I have a friend who just started reading Kerman’s book before watching this season with me. As it was phrased, it’s like someone mining The Fountainhead out of Old Yeller.

The Plot Thus Far

The power dynamics at Litchfield shift dramatically as the inmates react to tragedy in the explosive fifth season of “Orange Is the New Black.” When the standoff at the prison turns into a full-blown riot, the inmates take advantage of the confusion by conducting séances, holding prisoner auctions, and preening for the morning news. But with relationships tested and friendships starting to fray, will life at Litchfield ever return to normal?
