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.
Poussey (Samira Wiley), Taystee (Danielle Brooks) and Cindy (Adrienne C. Moore) all share last names with former US presidents (Washington, Jefferson and Hayes, respectively). Suzanne (Uzo Aduba)'s last name is the first name of former President Warren G. Harding.
Do you hear yourself sometimes? Like, when you speak?
The timeline of the show often changes; the first season indicates being set in 2010 (upon entering prison, Piper begs Larry to not watch the latest Mad Men without her, and Larry is shown the latest episode from season 4, which originally aired in 2010). However, season 5 references the San Bernarndino shootings, which occurred in 2015. This cannot be possible as Piper's prison sentence was for 15 months and only about a year has passed in those five seasons.
