Why I Stopped Watching Orange Is The New Black


When Netflix announced the launch of it’s adaptation of this book, I was relieved to finally have a deadline to pick it up and read it.

I have a hard time getting into non-fiction books, but this was such a celebrated story that I knew I was going to read it….someday.

It isn’t a long read, so in no time I understood the hype and was ready to see the Netflix show when it premiered in 2013.

We (my hubby and I) binged Season 1.

……..Then I stopped watching.

After the 2015 season, I just lost interest.

The whole thing turned sloppy for me.  What was once a well-written and engaging drama, just got lazy left me wishing I hadn’t watched it to begin with.   It started feeling forced and like the writers were exhausted by the effort to keep up dumb story lines.

Which is too bad – because I really loved the book.

What do you think – do you still watch?  Have you read the book?
