There’s always conflict between prisoners on the show, and sometimes those in charge, but last night’s 3 episodes had conflict in spades!
I read a series review yesterday that talked about this season being sadder. Well, I can see that, but the conflict is more developed as well. Inter-personal conflict, a big thing hanging over the prison (no spoilers), woman vs nature (bed bugs!), prisoner vs prisoner, and even prisoner vs their past.
‘Orange Is The New Black’ is about far more than one woman trying to make her way through her sentence. There’s a lot writers can learn from the show. Multi-layered characters, how humans can adapt to our environment, how people relate to one another when they have no choice, how our past can shape who we become, conflict, setting, and the list goes on.
‘Survivor’ won’t teach you anything but ‘Orange Is The New Black’ will.
