Trailer Alert – Orange Is The New Black Season 3 Is Almost Here!
In a little over a month, season 3 of Orange is the New Black will be on Netflix and all will be right with the world again. The greatest trick Netflix ever pulled was getting people addicted to binge watching TV shows, because now that they’ve created their own shows, there’s a buzz surrounding new seasons that is unmatched on basic or premium cable. As much as I love shows like ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Game of Thrones’, they’re a multi month commitment. You can go weeks (or months) between really great episodes, and sometimes waiting that long for a pay off gives you just enough cynicism to not appreciate it when it happens. But in the cases of shows like ‘House of Cards’, ‘Bloodlines’ and ‘Orange is the New Black’, if you’re insane enough, you can bang out a whole season in a weekend. OITNB is my favorite Netflix original because it blends comedy and drama so well. A show about a woman who lost it all and ended up in prison shouldn’t be funny, but the cast and writing is so great it’s impossible not to laugh at it sometimes. Season 3 premiers June 12th.
