awesome!

The movie has positive messages and role models. The show has some violence, there is some scenes of lesbian sex, there is graphic language and a scene of a toilet made alcoholic beverage, there are corrupt prison guards who sell drugs to some inmates. The show has a very good story and is worth the watch

Sad exploitation of women even in a woman's film

Why they need to make women get naked for this movie is beyond me. Tell the story, don't prostitute the actresses.

Entertaining but Morally Degrading

After watching most of the first season with my fiancee we decided that the show, although very entertaining, was not appropriate even for us grown adults. The excessive lesbian activity, language and nudity really ruined it for us. We made the decision to no longer watch the show, because it was not educating us or bettering us in any way--we actually found ourselves swearing more while watching the series. The series is absolutely inappropriate for children and teenagers; as adults we found it morally degrading.

Fewer shows capture such great drama and comedy

Before I start the 2nd season, which I hear is already incredible, I wanted to come on here and just gush about "OITNB" for a bit. The performances are all around fantastic, especially Piper, played with humanity and an underlying sadness by breakout Taylor Schilling. To list my favorites: Red, Larry, Nicky and Pornstache. All colorful characters with extremely colorful language that never fail to entertain. This is certainly adult and older teenage drama, and there could never be anything like it on cable...maybe HBO, but not cable! Binge on it now so you'll be in the loop!
