Trivia

The elaborate tattoos that inmate Stella (Ruby Rose) has in the series are not makeup effects for her character, but actual tattoos that Ruby has in real life. See more »

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 »

Jumped the shark
25 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

The show has lost its steam. After the first season, it became contrived and the writing worsened with every episode. No evolution of characters or any arcs that we can get behind and support.

Even Piper, the lead, is the most boring, flat character in all of television. Jenji Kohan has a reputation for bailing on shows when they start to go downhill (ie Weeds.) The current season is centered around UNBELIEVABLE events transpiring during a so-called riot (lifted directly from Oz, gun and all) with most eps not really making any sense or telling any kind of story.

I know people think this show WAS great. But time to be honest...

It is over. RIP.
