My wife and I finished up last night and it was kind of a mixed bag for me. It was mostly good. I really liked the expansion on Chang's character and I liked what they did with Gonzales. Hard as it was to watch, all of the Pennsatucky stuff was very effective as was the stuff with Bursett and Gloria. All the stuff with Crazy Eyes' book was fantastic and particularly, I really enjoyed the finale and how they wrapped things up. I particularly enjoyed how things wrapped up with Soso and with Crazy Eyes. Just felt good.
The things that I didn't really care for: Most things having to do with Piper. Piper and Alex, Piper and Beiber, Piper "the Godfather," etc. I don't hate Piper typically. She has always been kind of a "meh" character but even when she was doing cool stuff (like running an illegal operation from inside prison) she was just really obnoxious about it. I get that it part of the make-up of her character and there was no "betrayal" of who she is, but it's just not terribly fun to watch. She's just so "meh." I also thought the "cult of Norma" stuff got to be a bit tedious. I think they just gave the story too much real estate. Mostly though, I saw a bit of "season 3 syndrome." I wouldn't have noticed it if my wife hadn't pointed it out, but once you see it you can't unsee it. It seems like round about season 3 of shows the hair and make-up gets ramped up. In Scrubs for instance, you started to see everyone fixing their teeth and having commercial grade hair where before it was kind of refreshing that people looked a lot more like people. This is particularly kind of annoying in OitNB with it being a prison show. Just kind of takes you out of the experience a bit. Not a huge thing, but a nagging little thing.
All in all though I really enjoyed it. Maybe not quite as much as seasons 1 and 2, but I definitely liked it. I'm kind of grateful for no more Jason Biggs. I like him well enough in general, but his and Piper's dynamic was done long before the show realized it.
