Great start to a great season
1 July 2017 | by water_bug2See all my reviews

Like the inmates of Litchfield, Americans are angry and ready to see an end to the social injustices that continue to go unchecked in our nation. This episode, and the season in general capture the spirit of unrest that many feel and rebellion that many desire. Additionally, like the last half of the fourth season, it highlights the atrocious conditions created by the prison industrial complex and especially for-profit prisons that many people are apparently unaware of. The actions of the inmates and their subsequent reactions are thought provoking and compelling. The story is inspiring and reminds us that unity is essential to any movement. Much can be accomplished when we work together, so long as we stick together.
