Very entertaining first two episodes so far
3 July 2016 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

First two opening episodes of "Orange Is the New Black" were very entertaining. I loved the writing - it is funny, realistic and very involving. Characters are 3 dimensional, sharply written. Acting is top notch by all involved, especially by the lead Taylor Schilling and supporting stuff is also great.

Overall, so far i enjoyed "Orange Is the New Black" more then i thought i would. It is also superbly directed show first two episodes of which were superbly paced - at running time ~50 min. each they didn't drag and were entertaining from start till finish. Highly recommended.
