Are you watching this show? You should be. I'm not sure how we stumbled upon this show, but I was hooked instantly. It's a Netflix original, meaning you can only watch it on Netflix streaming. I hear there will be more and more shows like this, which is awesome because then there aren't all the "rules" of network TV. Let's face it, those shows get boring. This is a show with true grit, and it's based on a true story revolving around a women's prison, the staff, inmates, stigma, environment, etc. It is a fantastic show and I highly recommend it!
