Films about prison are always allocated with any special anguish, especially when their authors have for an object something to tell about life in a cage, instead of it is simple to use a prison setting for any rectilinear fighter or эксплойтейшена. Within the precincts of penal institutions the good and evil intertwine so that merge in an illegible shadow play, people open in themselves light or come over to a dark side, the destiny continually throws up surprises.

Laura Prepon was initially tried for a role Piper, but founders of show decided that Alex will suit it more

Authors "Orange" from the first episode let know that for us waits further. It is a peculiar excursion on a zoo of archetypes of the correctional centers – each woman with the history and with the truth, to which else it is necessary to get to the bottom. Screenwriters build history really masterfully – flashbacks in the past of the elected heroines are evenly scattered on a season, the mosaic gathers slowly but surely. Formally main character, Piper, leaves from time to time on the second plan, conceding a proscenium to other inhabitants of prison, but founders never forget about it – it gradually reveals and constantly develops. From «the poor rich girl» as whom it appears at us at the beginning of a season, to the ending there will be no also a trace – and not so much because with it the prison, how many will make because she in herself will see.

In general the main idea of series (not to judge the book on a wrapper), certainly, is not new, and, in principle, for films about prison this cliche – how many time we saw, how robbers and murderers appeared in actual fact the sweetest people?

War with the internal demons (and usually lose) those who protects these women in parallel wage, – the power, as we know, corrupts.
