Orange Is The New Black is the hot new Netflix series created by Jenji Kohan, the genius behind Weeds.

In the series, Piper Chapman’s life is turned upside down when she is forced to turn herself in for a crime she committed nearly 10 years prior. Chapman it tossed into the prison system where she meets an unlikely group of women, each of which inadvertently teach her a little something about herself.

There was so much buzz about the show, it was renewed for a second season before even being released and we totally get why; it’s amazing! There are so many things to love about Orange Is The New Black, but for those of you a little  behind the eight ball, we compiled a list of 27 reasons we can’t get enough.

Lets just get straight to it, shall we?

We can all relate to Chapman in some way.

The series boasts some of the best one-liners we’ve ever heard on a sitcom.

We’re not kidding.

…it’s been renewed for a second drama-filled, heart-breaking and hilarious season…

..and will hopefully have many more!
