Television Tuesdays: “Orange Is the New Black,” on Netflix
With Netflix and the occasional access to my best friend’s HBO GO account, I haven’t had much of a need for traditional cable television. Don’t get me wrong, though. I’ll always love TV to its core, but the flexibility of online streaming allows me to truly indulge.
When I find a show that I vibe with, I dive in head first. “Orange Is the New Black,” a new Netflix original series by Jenji Kohan (the creator of “Weeds”), is one of those shows. Inspired by the memoir of Piper Kerman (who serves as the show’s consultant), it centers on Piper Chapman (played by Taylor Schilling) as she serves a 15-month prison sentence for a smuggling drug money 10 years prior. Chapman’s life in her 30s is very different from life in her 20s. She’s engaged to her supportive boyfriend Larry (a writer played by Jason Biggs) and enjoys a relatively settled existence, starting a soap-making business with her best friend Polly and shopping for organic foods. But when she’s sent to prison, she encounters her former lover/smuggling “boss” Alex (played by Laura Prepon from “That ’70s Show”) and is forced to confront her past.
