The Netflix original series Orange Is The New Black has become insanely popular, and with good reason. The show offers a glimpse into a life that many of us will never experience: that of an inmate in a New York women’s prison. Based on the memoir of the main character, Piper, the series provides its viewers with intense drama, love triangles, endless humor and all sorts of prison conflicts. Still not convinced to watch? Check out these GIFs and then get back to us.
As Piper learns early on after entering prison, things aren’t always ideal.
The cops have some interesting perspectives on how to manage a prison and keep it running safely.
And some of the inmates don’t exactly have a great handle on reality.
They can also be extremely violent, but at least good intentions are behind it some of the time.
We even learn that love can blossom among the cell walls. Former relationships are rekindled…
…and new, dangerous ones are unintentionally formed.
Although hope can sometimes be lost, the women just have to look toward their future.
If that isn’t possible, then they learn to make the best of what they’ve got.
But most of all, we are reminded that they’re just like the rest of us, highlights and all.
After all, girls just want to have fun, right?
Tune into season 3 of Orange Is The New Black in June 2015 on Netflix! You won’t want to miss it.
