- From there, much of the show became about the inmates, guards, and Caputo reacting to new budget cutbacks and a general overall bureaucratic ignorance about prison life. Moreover, an actual across-the-board contempt for the human element of prison rehabilitation in favor of turning a profit. - IGN
- A show initially created on the back of a narrative steeped with white privilege -- "what happens when a pretty white woman from an upper-class background has to go to prison with the non-white people and the poors?" -- "Orange" has now stripped that away to the point where Piper, by the end of Season 3, is at times almost an afterthought to the primary story being told. - Indiewire
Use spoiler cuts or don't, go wild!
imo, I thought this season was much slower than the last ones, but I was very happy about the way they developed some characters, ie. Pennsatucky was great.
