9 Reasons Season 6 Of 'OITNB' Is A Total Flop

Spoiler alert!

'OITNB'

I adore "Orange is the New Black." It has consistently delivered in its diverse storytelling and sympathetic portrayal of its mostly female cast. I liked a lot of things about season 6: the continuous themes of injustice in the justice system, Taystee's story arc, the always witty Nicky, and a lot of other things. However, there are also a lot of things I think should have been different in this season. The overall decline in quality is a clear indicator that the show will be coming to a close in the near future.

1. Way too much Piper

I love how far Alex and Piper's relationship has come. But I don't know how much of Piper's whiny voice asking, "Where's Alex?" I can take. Frankly, she needs to pipe down. I know Piper is the protagonist, but personally, I would be perfectly fine with less Piper. Now that she's gotten early release, hopefully that's what we get.

2. No news from our favs

That's right! Since the women of Litchfield Minimum have been split into different prisons, we don't see how things are down in Ohio. Sadly, that means no Big Boo, Soso, Martiza, Allison, meth heads, and more! It's really a shame since so much time was spent building up these characters.

3. Not enough scenes with the original supporting cast

Even though most of the original supporting cast is there, they don't feel THERE. I was craving more dialogue from Sophia, Pennastucky, and Lorna!

4. The new characters are BORING

I'm sorry, there is no way you can get me to care about Badison.

5. The feud is dumb

I may have just been too stupid to understand what they were fighting about.

6. Maximum security does not feel menacing

Even though the CO's are absolutely deplorable, something about max feels too comedic? I just wasn't feeling the fear that the inmates felt from the Little Debbie Killers. I found Vee to be much scarier.

7. Taystee's storyline

I know, I know, I just said I loved her arc this season. But there's one thing I did not like about it: there's too much focus on Joe and appeasing his guilt in relation to Taystee.

8. Name dropping Piper's memoir

It just felt too obvious and cringey.

9. Too much setup for the next season

It just felt like too much exposition and setup and not a lot was actually happening.

Once again, I love this show and I cannot wait to see what's to come. This is just my opinion about some of the flaws this season.

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
