Another Netflix original series started yesterday. Once again, it has 13 episodes in Season 1; all are available for streaming. It is created by the same one who did Weeds.
I watched the first episode last night and found it very enjoyable, which surprised me a little. The premise is that an upper class Brooklyn socialite turns herself in for an illegal act she did ten years earlier and has to spend 15 months in a federal prison. It seems to combine grittiness with quirkiness, humor with darkness, and I'm going to continue watching.
I will state for those who may find it uncomfortable that there are some graphic sex scenes. I thought some of them were not really necessary, but I guess they fit the concept and I was fine with it. I totally did not recognize Kate Mulgrew until I looked at the credits. Link is below for anyone who wants to know more.
