So much has already been written about how fabulous this show is (some of it even by me), but I’m going to add more to the overflowing pot.

When I thought about who I wanted to single out from the show, I simply couldn’t. The ensemble cast is flawless. Each character – main, supporting or almost background – has a compelling story to be told. So far, in season 1, we have only been privileged enough to hear a handful.

I love everything about this show: the cast, the writing, the ensemble feel, the fact that the majority of writers are women, that it was created by a woman, that it is diverse racially and emotionally, that it treats every single character with the same gravity…. Netflix, I cannot thank you enough. Jenji Kohan, you either! And Piper Kerman, thank you for sharing your story.

I am in love with this show. I am obsessed with this show. I cannot stop talking about this show, and hopefully you won’t be able to, either.
