This weekend I attempted to watch Orange is the New Black. Thomas said the series was quite good, and I’ve heard nothing but rave reviews from all my friends online. So, Erin and I sat down to watch the season premiere, and…
I was seriously underwhelmed. “Maybe ‘Exclusive to Netflix’ is the new HBO,” Erin said, and I’m inclined to agree. It seemed like there was boobs, sex, and lesbian love just because they could have all those things thanks to the story line. I didn’t get sucked into the story of why Piper Chapman was in prison, and the flashbacks between present time and her past were jarring and I didn’t really like the style.
Eh. Maybe I just don’t get it. But, I don’t think it’s a series I’ll be finishing.
It floors me that it’s almost the end of September already. At work, we plan a few weeks in advance, so I’ve been talking about October forever but it’s always in that distant, it’ll-happen-eventually kind of way. Now, we’re a week away from the 1st. WHAT?
I have to say though, I love fall. It’s definitely my favourite season, so I am very excited to bring out the jackets, sweaters and scarves!
What’s your favourite season/new television show?
