"Orange Is The New Black"
Now that Season One is out on DVD, I'm bingeing on "Orange Is The New Black." It's a wonderfully-written show about women in prison. I like how the show explores lives of disadvantaged women (of color, transgender, etc.) to a depth never seen before on TV.
The show was created by the woman behind "Weeds" and is based on the true story of Piper Kerman, a privileged white woman sent to prison a decade ago for a drug crime.
The show has a transgender character played by a transgender actress. That's a story-line uncommon in popular entertainment.
Have you seen the show? If not, you should.
