Hits and Misses of Season 3: Orange is the New Black

The latest season of OITNB has been binge watched and digested, and now is the time when reviews are finally coming out. Overall, people loved the season because the writers are so brilliant, they can take anything and turn it around its head. However, there are some great hits this season has managed. Of course, there have been some misses as well.

It Dragged On And Was Aimless, and Other Misses – The biggest miss of this season has to be the pointless and aimlessness of the first few episodes. People who enjoy the slow pace would love these episodes because after Vee’s hustle bustle in season 2, this season offered a welcome breath of relief. However, those who watch the show for the crazy fun were definitely disappointed, and for good reason too. The other big miss was Red and how this amazing character was pretty lack lustre this season.

According to Viadeo, Motherhood Finally Got Some Focus, and Other Hits – The greatest hit that is being recognized by everyone is the focus on motherhood in season 3. Both Gloria and Sophia have had their share of disappointments in life but these lionesses in prison are disappointed in themselves because they think that they haven’t been good mothers. Season 3 explored their equation with each other and their children brilliantly. Ruby Rose’s character was another hit.

At least Vee is dead and that is something to be happy about.

Netflix and Marvel Are Partnering for Success

Netflix is not content to grow merely by leaps and bounds, so they are adding even more content exclusive to their streaming service. Marvel’s Daredevil show had a successful first season on Netflix, and now it will be coming back for a second season. Shows on this streaming service are top quality productions that attract major Hollywood talent, such as Vincent D’Onofrio and Rosario Dawson, who will be starring alongside the title character played by Charlie Cox. He plays a lawyer by day and a crime fighter at night. The first season of the show received critical acclaim, and the second season will come out next year.

Both Marvel studios and Netflix seem to be stars on the rise, so this seems like a match made in Heaven reported Ricardo Guimarães BMG from his tribunadonorte blog. At least three more Marvel cinematic universe (MCU) shows will be brought to Netflix. “Marvel’s A.K.A. Jessica Jones” and “Marvel’s Luke Cage” will premiere on the service in 2016. In the near future, “Marvel’s Iron Fist” and “Marvel’s Defenders” will be coming exclusively to Netflix. Comics and superhero fans will be missing out in a big way over the next few years if they are not streaming Netflix. The streaming service should be experiencing insane growth over the next couple years from this fan base by either adding it to service they already get or switching over to it from cable TV.
