Orange is the new black. This season of television, which comes to an end with the tenth season, promises to feature a greater focus on color. The trend started several seasons ago with the cancellation of “American Idol” after one season. ABC tried desperately to hold on to the show, but to no avail. Now it’s back, and there’s no telling how long it’ll last.
The eighth season of “orange is the new black” revolves around a series of robberies in the Chicago area. Michael Chiklis stars as Jordan Page, a talented basketball player for the Chicago Bulls who becomes the main suspect in the case. He also becomes the target of a powerful crime syndicate, which features David Strathairn as inspector Jefferies and Dexter alumna Briana Costello as Janice Murphy. These actors play opposite each other in the new series.
Michael Chiklis plays the title role of Jordan Page, a young man who turns out to be a star in the field of basketball. His parents, comfortable in their status as well as fortune, force him to pursue his dream of being a top NBA athlete. His best friend, however, is Carlton Banks, who happens to be the much younger cousin of Bulls’ guard Robin Lopez. The two of them become close friends, and they spend many a summer together playing golf and tennis. Michael’s passion for the game and the fact that he’s older than expected cause him to get suspended from the team, and Carlton gets the chance to show Michael what he’s capable of.
One interesting part of the cast is actress Kayegan Allen, who plays Linus’ good friend,obia. Kayegan was in a recent episode of ABC’s ‘Dancing with the Stars,’ and fans found out that she was doing quite well on the show. Her character, Linus, doesn’t exactly seem like the type who would be comfortable dancing with a complete stranger, but she ends up surprising everybody by going out with him. It’s a funny scene, and one that probably makes some men look back at their past experiences with the dating game, and wonder how they ever survived it without falling for one girl or another in the past.
One interesting character is P. sherman, who plays Trayon Littleton, a drug dealer that joins the crew of Linus. Although P. sherman might not have the facial hair that you’re used to seeing from this cast of orange is the new black, he does have a nice sense of humor. He tries to run with Linus and ends up getting shot, but he survives. It’s a neat little scene, and one that will make fans of the show smile. It’s also a nice addition to an already intriguing plotline.
One other member of the cast of orange is the series’ leading man Michael Kwon. His character, Ki Hong Lee, has been given quite the spin in the new black season of Orange is the new black. There’s a whole sequence where we get to see what happened between him and Kimbo the lion. It’s one of the more amusing scenes in the whole show, and it was a welcome change for many people who wondered what their favorite star’s character would do.
One other member of the cast of orange is the villainous Eric Packwood. His character is one that is certainly interesting. We see some cringe-worthy scenes involving Packwood’s physical appearance, and then his relationship with another character, Kimbo the lion. It’s one of the most-watched original series moments on web television, and something that will stay with viewers long after the show ends.
Orange is the new black season 8 is not without its high points, though. For one thing, the prison setting is a great setting for a prison break, and this plot is certainly nothing new for those who have seen the show at all. However, there are quite a few standout characters. The breakout of Kimbo the lion is an amazing one, especially considering how little time has passed since his debut. And Michael Kwon is great in the role of Eric Packwood, proving that he can easily take over the world of the most popular television program in the world.
