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 »

A slight climb up, then races to the bottom...
19 August 2016 | by See all my reviews

This show has mega-jumped the political shark in Season 4 and gone completely off the rails of what it started off as. The start of the show displayed the true to life stereotyping and racial tensions present in any prison in interesting but constructive ways. Now once interesting characters have turned into cartoonish, ridiculous clichés that instead of mirroring reality, are trying to mirror whatever is trending on social media. The saddest part being that most of the events in the news that the story is trying to mimic have been shown to be opposite or untrue of what they appeared, which makes it now seem awkward. That is the risk you take when you film episodes ahead of time without the facts.

Season 1 started off strong and so was most of season 2. The characters were well developed and if not always likable, you understood better where they were coming from. You knew even if they made dumb choices, no one really grows up intending to go to prison. Season 3 got sidetracked with endless backstories that got predictable and tedious, though sometimes entertaining.

Now it's almost like a totally different show, some low budget, amateurish and contrived plot you find on YouTube productions. It's a sad end to what was a great start, the start being the only reason it gets 4 stars. The actors don't feel like they are vested in the show anymore and the writing has lost a lot of it's creativity to pandering. Unless Season 5 starts with Piper waking up and Season 4 being a dream sequence ala Dallas, it won't be worth watching.
