One of the best series of 2013 is, without a doubt, “Orange is the new Black“. Produced by Netflix and broadcast the 11th of July, the series, created by Jenji Kohan (Weeds), is based on the memoir “Orange is the new Black” by Piper Kerman which tells of her one year experience in prison.
The drama is simply one of the best show ever made because it shows the life in a prison without a sick point of view but with realistic and, in some way, comic, aspect. The cast is brilliant and full of great actress: Taylor Schilling, Laura Prepon, Kate Mulgrew, Michael J. Harney, Uzo Aduba (she is one of my favorite), Laverne Cox, Jason Biggs and Natasha Lyonne are some of them but one of these actress, in my opinion, is the best.
Taryn Manning, alias Tiffany “Pennsatucky” Doggett, is one of the most incredible characters in the series. Taryn (“Crossroads“, “8 Mile“, “Crazy/Beautiful“) has portraied Tiffany very well, she is so realistic and so psychotic that you cannot hate her.
She is one of the bad guys, she is evil and a religious fanatic and she spends her time in prison doing bad things to Piper. She hates her because she doesn’t believe in God and because she thinks that she is lesbian. She is simply crazy and everytime she does something, is something horrible or vicious but, you can’t stop to love her.
One of her best moves is in the season finale, when she decides to kill Piper because she is an “Angel of God“. Damn girl, you’re crazy!.
I’m excited because the show will have a second season and because Taryn has been promoted as series regular for the second season, so, this means that more Doggett is coming. Stay tuned for more information about the show and about Pennsatucky and remember
