Is Orange Still the New Black?

You know that look. When you start saying, “Do you watch Orange is the New-“ and they rudely cut you off with that glaring look of disapproval. Okay, so maybe you aren’t surrounded by as much ambiguous negativity as I am, but whenever I mention the show, people around me either acknowledge it’s purely objective qualities and/or dismiss it as ultra-feminist rubbish. The show is often cast aside because of misconceptions of its all-female cast (as if the entertainment industry is suffering from a ubiquity of strong female characters) that bashes all men. However, there are luckily enough people who willed the Netflix Gods into producing a second season to perhaps prove to doubtful audiences that Orange is the New Black is simply a show of the complex human nature.
