As part of my Netflix Stream Team duties every now and again I get invited to the launch of a new series. However as I’ve been under a rock for the past year, I haven’t caught up with half the cult series. Basically if it’s not a cartoon character based series, I probably haven’t seen it. These are the perils of having small children in the house & working odd hours.
When the invitation to the launch of Series 2 of Orange Is The New Black (OITNB) arrived I asked a few of my team; Sinéad & Jon to head on in and check it out. They’re big fans & here is what Sinéad thought:
Let me start off with saying I am a huge fan of the Netflix Original Series. When House of Cards was released, I binged out on it for most of the weekend. My plan for this weekend was something similar with the release of Orange Is The New Black (OITNB). So when I got a invite of going to the premier viewing of the first two episodes of Orange Is The New Black, I was delighted!
I arrived to the Lighthouse Cinema in Smithfield, to be created by staff in orange jumpsuits (if I didn’t know any better I could have been at a Slipknot concert!) There were orange cocktails on arrival and plenty of popcorn and chocolate vanilla cupcakes to go around!
A summary of the two episodes without giving any spoilers out – Piper is still in prison, I have learnt how to manage peeing on a long journey, and never underestimate the power of the cockroach!
As I went to watch the show I was not disappointed. The story line is dark and humorous, and all the characters are amazing.
Netflix say: The highly-anticipated second season of Netflix’s OITNB goes back behind bars for another sentence with the fearless, funny and unforgettable inmates of Litchfield prison.
