What a rollercoaster seven seasons have been! Never have I been so invested in characters on tv!
Yes it started out as a one-woman show but I think the creators rightly enlarged the scope of OITNB. Soooo many characters yet you knew them all in such detail. Surely even bigger than a soap opera?
Cried a few times too., not really.
Brilliant series, though, after 6 seasons, the engagement level is diminishing
(Updated after Season 6)
The story of your average early-30s female yuppie who gets sent to prison for 15 months for a crime she committed 10 years earlier. Season 1 Episode 1 shows her checking into the prison, and the rest is what goes on inside, plus the effects of her incarceration on her friends and family.
Initially I thought it was going to a female version of Oz, but it is far better than that. Multi-dimensional: funny, sensitive and sometimes dark. There is heaps of depth to the characters. Clever use of pre-prison flashbacks to show what motivates characters in certain situations, and how they got to be in jail. Very sensitively done, it often shows how their personalities were shaped.
This also serves to show that you can’t simply judge people by their current actions – everyone has heaps of baggage.
Superb performances from a spot-on cast.
So different to what I expected, and very pleasantly so.
Season 4 continues the good work and is the usual mix of powerful drama and biting comedy. Maybe a bit darker and deeper than previous seasons due to covering issues of insanity, depression, guard brutality and prisoners’ lives once they get out of prison. Some characters who didn’t get much focus in previous seasons get more of the limelight, while others get less. One of the casualties is Pennsatucky / Doggett (Taryn Manning), which is a shame as she is one of my favourites – multi-layered and funny. On the plus side, Lolly (Lori Petty) gets much more screen time and she is great: funny and sad, all at the same time.
The last two episodes of Season 4 are incredibly powerful and moving.
Season 5 picked up where S4 left off and showed that the writers had certainly not run out of ideas. At a point when most series start to feel jaded, Orange is the New Black was as strong and fresh as ever.
Season 6 is where the novelty started to wear off and the writing started to show signs of weakness. The setting and situation were new: the Max side of the prison, complete with the more limited freedom it presents, plus grittier, more dangerous characters. This made for some interesting possibilities and the writers used these fairly well.
However, the character engagement, usually OITNB’s strongest feature, is now largely missing. Tasha Jefferson is the only character whose story is worth following, and this gets drawn out to the nth degree. Piper Chapman, being irritating (though I think this was more due to Taylor Schilling’s performance than anything else), was never worth supporting and this season is no exception. She does, however, provide the most emotional moment of the season.
The lack of engagement in the season is largely due to some previously-likeable/interesting characters being made into irritating characters. The over-the-topness of Red and Lorna’s dialogue and general drama constantly made me tune out whenever they appeared.
There are a host of new characters but none are worth supporting. Their introduction also dilutes the impact of the characters and stories you do care about.
Overall Season 6 was watchable but it did feel like a chore at times.
Hopefully Season 7 is the final season as I think the series has almost run its course. Anything more than that and watching would be a chore.
