Convicted of a decade old crime of transporting drug money to an ex-girlfriend, normally law-abiding Piper Chapman is sentenced to a year and a half behind bars to face the reality of how life-changing prison can really be.
Rebecca Pearson once had a difficult pregnancy with triplets. The resulting births occurred on the same day as her husband Jack Pearson's thirty-sixth birthday. The lives of Rebecca, Jack and their three offspring - Kevin, Kate and Randall - are presented at different points in time. The Rebecca and Jack stories generally take place during the early stage of their marriage, surrounding the birth of the three children, or at different phases of the children's upbringing, which was not always smooth sailing for any of the five. Separate stories concerning Kevin, Kate and Randall are also presented in their adult years, each who has his or her own baggage resulting from that upbringing: Kevin who was generally the neglected one because he had no outward issues; Kate who has always had weight issues; and Randall, the gifted one, being the visible outsider and being the "non-K" child.

You'd think the best episode was the pilot, you'd be wrong..
A great show with no supernatural events, no one with special powers, not about politics, medicine or any thing more than LIFE. I have not seen a quality show like this one where all characters are important to the plot. Everything in this show happens for a reason and is explained, if not in the same episode in a different one. The detail of the show is incredible and the characters are ones you get to know like friends. Everyone has their own problems and issues, just like we all have in life. This is just my opinion and you don't have to agree with it but with all the negativity out there it is refreshing to see a nicely written show like this one.
