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 »

Quotes

[while driving the prison van]
Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett: I'd butter your toast. I'd feed her dog. I'd zip his sweater. Mmm! See? It doesn't matter what you say, as long as it's "I'd blank your blank"!
[chuckles]
Tiffany 'Pennsatucky' Doggett: It all sounds dirty, always.

It's like "Weeds" meets "OZ" *Must Watch*
12 July 2013 | by (Sunnyvale) – See all my reviews

I watched all 13 episodes already...and the show launched less than 2 days ago. Yes it's THAT good! I was already interested in "Orange", as I assume most of you were, because of the magic Jenji Kohan has given us before...but this gem blew my expectations away! The way he lets the characters develop without feeling forced will make you care about these inmates and C.O.'s, and you won't even realize it until you try to take a break from watching. Fans of his work in "Weeds" will instantly feel at home with his direction style and camera work. The humor he writes into this series will bring back fond memories of The Botwins without feeling stale in the slightest. Much like the classic prison drama "OZ", this incredible cast holds it down in a small prison setting with ease. You will see names you know, but the ones you don't will steal the scene. The way Kohan weaves in flashbacks of how the inmates got there flow seamlessly in with the prison scenes. I was glued to the screen through all 13 episodes and already I'm excited for season 2.

This is an instant hit, don't pass it up!
