For those of you who haven’t seen the trailer:
If that hasn’t sold you yet, let me give you some insights.
A female prison setting provides one of the greatest, most in-depth insights into the female psyche.
Now, don’t think I’m selling the psychological make-up of women short. I believe we are some of the most complex creatures and the basic setting of a prison ward breaks everything down to the most basic barrings a woman has.
The series proves that no matter where a woman is, their heart, soul, and very existence relies on the same principles:
- Love. We want it, we need it. We need to feel supported and beautiful and wanted. Without love, we are left vulnerable and easily broken. Best trick of the trade in this setting (If you don’t want to become someone’s bitch): You have the right to remain silent.
- Family. Without family, we are left to fend for ourselves. The show proves, however, that a family does not have to be blood-ties. You can make your own family if one has not been already provided for you.
- Understanding. Everyone has a desire to be understood. This brings respect and respect brings survival.
If a woman is scorned through any of these items, they can hold a grudge until the grave or they settle the score… which can land them in the New Black: Orange.
Now, Get to watching.
