Orange Is The New Black – Season Four: Blu-ray Review










Season Overview:

New faces and old resentments make for a potentially volatile blend, especially now that Litchfield is a for-profit business. Overrun with new inmates and overseen by inexperienced guards, the prison undergoes an unprecedented culture war.

This season pretty much hits the ground running and doesn’t stop one bit. Every single episode is full of character development and storyline progression. There’s not one single episode that is fluff or filler which is a good change when it comes to TV shows recently. The other thing that I do applaud this season for doing is feeling fresh. It’s almost as if it experienced a slight show reboot with various new elements that were present. That’s always a good thing in my opinion because it saves the show from becoming stale. This season progresses each character’s story nicely and starts to also get towards the end of the background of certain characters which leads me to believe that we may be getting some bigger moments going into season five. The storylines of the season are all pretty random and scattered but the show constantly does a great job at funneling them all together for a big finale and this one was no different. The event that leads into the finale was definitely something that was pulled from the headlines and is a heartbreaking thing to see but it does catapult the show into the next season. There really wasn’t a particular character that was a favorite of mine this season and that’s for the fact that they’re all very likable in a weird way. Everyone has their quirks and loud personalities and that makes the show really fun to watch. If you haven’t seen the show then I highly suggest picking this up. It blends the perfect amount of drama and comedy that will keep you entertained the entire way through. 9/10
