Former Prisoners' Thoughts on 'Orange is the New Black'

The Cut held a screening of Orange is the New Black for formerly incarcerated women. Here's what they thought.

This paragraph was particularly interesting:

"Orange Is the New Black’s frequent flashbacks provide depth for its formidable ensemble cast, but they might erase one of the hazards of forming relationships inside: You never truly know anyone. “Prison is the largest stage ever,” Morales said. “And the Oscar goes to ... Everybody is somebody else.” Women are not just “gay for the stay,” added Donovan. They’re religious for the stay. Degrees are invented."
I had never thought of it that way... I bet that must be really weird/stressful to go through.
