Orange is the new black season 3

*Warning this review contains spoilers*

So like a lot of people out there I was really looking forward to the new season of Orange is the new black. I counted down the days it would arrive on Netflix and promised myself that I would spend every spare minute watching the show.

Well that didn't happen, it took me about two weeks to watch the new season. Not because I didn't have time, it was because I just wasn't that hooked on the show as the first two seasons. This season did have it's moments and of course I enjoyed it, but it just wasn't that good.

I hated the way Piper developed herself in this season, she tried to become some bad ass gangster with her panties. But to me she still looked like the woman they locked up two seasons ago. The fact that she just simpley left Alex for the new girl felt all kinds of wrong. Not that I want them to end up together but they way it went was just strange.

I kind of liked the Alex story line, the fact that she found out that the person she thought followed her is just crazy was fun to watch. And the actrice playing her did an amazing job.

Crazy eyes, how I love her. The fact that at the end of the season there was someone that wanted her as girlfriend was so sweet. I loved the way they worked out that story and I hope we'll get to see more of it in the next season.

And the way Bennett just left Daya, is there anyone that accepted that? I just can't tell you how much I hated that moment in this new season.

So I still look forward to the next season, I just kind of hope that Piper gets her act together and be herself again. What did you think of the third season?

1 opmerking:

  1. I felt pretty much the same. Piper was such an asshole this season! I mean, if they don't want her to be a likable character, then fine, she doesn't have to be. But the way they wrote her in was just annoying and hard to watch. I kind of liked the new girl she was with, but the way Piper just ditched Alex like that was so weird.

    I was so sad about Bennett. I really thought he'd come back later in the season, but they kinda just dropped him and forgot about it :/
