For a while I thought the first two seasons were a crazy roller coaster of a dream. An amazing fluke for Netflix who knocked it out of the park with characters like Crazy Eyes and Tasty. Then I saw it! The new trailer for Season Three, set to come out June 12th.
OITNB is definitely off the chain and had people comparing it to the female version of Oz from back in the day (seriously like twenty five years ago!) Prisoner Cell Block H. (Prisoner is a 1980’s Australian soap opera that is set in the Wentworth Detention Centre, a fictional women’s prison. In the United States and United Kingdom it was billed as Prisoner: Cell Block H, and in Canada as Caged Women.)
BTW, if you want something to watch while you wait for OITNB to come on in June then you can watch Wentworth on Netflix. A drama, Wentworth (which is based on the 1980s Australian show Prisoner I spoke of above) is pretty good and with plenty of accents.
So if you’ve binge watched Oz and The Wire and you’re waiting around until Orange Is The New Black Comes Back try these on for size. Seeing the cultural differences is a learning experience in itself. Not to worry though, Crazy Eyes will be back soon enough!
