Dont waste your time on this show. It is beyond unrealistic. Its not well written and just makes you cringe how unrealistic her transformation is in a few months from innocent stand down back off little spoiled girl to trying to be and i quote "gangsta" and giving herself tattoos. She was still a rich, privileged, spoiled girl, responsible for everything. And the depiction of prison was totally wrong. Awful awful awful show.

Ok, just finished season 4 and I'm pretty solidly done with this series. So many plotholes, poor writing, neglected storylines - and to top it off, why does it seem like every woman in this prison is a witty-otherwise-saint who "just got caught up in a misunderstanding"? And ended up in federal prison? I DON'T BELIEVE THAT FOR A SECOND. And the whole racism and BLM BS and demonization of vets was where I drew the line. The series is just a pile of progressive social justice messages.

It's pretty good actually. Not certain what being religious has to do with any of it; it's about prison life. Sure, the main character is an annoying, self-absorbed nitwit but the other characters make up for such an irritation. Certain story lines could have been better developed but overall, not too shabby.
