This winter break I’ve invested in Netflix, as I’ve previously discussed. It has saved me from extreme boredom and has been entertaining me as I continue to fill out law school applications during break. Unlike all my friends, I don’t move into my apartment in D.C. until next week. The abundance of movies and tv shows at my fingertips is astounding!
The newest show I’ve gotten into is Orange Is The New Black. It’s a show about a woman, Piper, who gets thrown in prison after a crime she committed like 15 years ago. She’s not what a viewer would consider the typical jail type which adds to the humor. It’s a dark comedy so while being funny it also has more serious elements at times. The show also goes into the backstories of various inmates as well. It gets risqué at times so it might not be for everyone.
I have gotten so addicted to it that I’ve gotten through the whole season in two days. The second season is supposed to be premiering on Netflix sometime this year so I’m excited for it to get started back up again! Ellen Degeneres did a funny skit involving a scene on the show fairly recently that I enjoyed:
