Trivia

In September 2014, Lauren Morelli, one of the show's writers, announced that she and her husband of two years were divorcing because she had started a relationship with Samira Wiley. Jenji Kohan later joked about the situation while a panelist at the New Yorker Festival, saying "I turned [Morelli] gay. I made her gay. I felt there wasn't enough balance in the [writing] room, so I have a magic wand and I make people gay. But, you know, I can turn her back. I can make people Hispanic. I can make them black."

Goofs

The timeline of the show often changes; the first season indicates being set in 2010 (upon entering prison, Piper begs Larry to not watch the latest Mad Men without her, and Larry is shown the latest episode from season 4, which originally aired in 2010). However, season 5 references the San Bernarndino shootings, which occurred in 2015. This cannot be possible as Piper's prison sentence was for 15 months and only about a year has passed in those five seasons. See more »

Hilarious and dark.
13 July 2013 | by chuckylewinSee all my reviews

This show is a seriously funny drama.

If you like 'Weeds', 'Breaking Bad' or prefer your humour on the darker side, then give it a go... you will not be disappointed.

Very few people create characters like Jenji Kohan... and it is the characters that make this show. Like 'Weeds', 'Orange' is fresh and original, and like 'Weeds' the lead character is tragically flawed and hilariously funny.

Well done to Netflix on their latest production... 'Hemlock Grove' is just weird, 'House of Cards' was hit and miss... but it looks like the third time is a charm. Bravo.

(FYI: humour is how we Brits spell humor). :-)
