Netflix, the online media platform, continues to pave the way for original programming with its latest original series Orange is the New Black. Based on Piper Kerman's memoir of the same name, the series follows Piper Chapman, a well-to-do New Yorker who is thrown in prison for a drug-smuggling crime she committed 10 years prior. Her time in a woman's prison is documented in the series, which is surprisingly funny and heartfelt in addition to eye-opening about life behind bars. (Especially during a time in which women's prisons have become part of the national conversation.) And, luckily for us, the show has already been renewed for a Season 2. Here are the things that we (and, clearly, you) love about this Netflix series.
