I’m genuinely SO bored with the “‘Orange Is The New Black’ isn’t a comedy” line, even when it comes from the very best of my friends and colleagues. Comedies do different things. Some make you laugh all the time. Some make you laugh some of the time. Some darkly observe life’s absurdities through a premise in extremis. “Garfield” is a comedy and “Catch 22” is a comedy and “The Master & Margarita” is a comedy AND THEY’RE ALL DIFFERENT. Lord. If you’d asked me which category “Orange” belonged in, I’d tell you “Orange Is The New Black” is absolutely a comedy and it’s easily the best show in the category, which is saying something since “Louie” and “Veep” will be contenders for my Year-End Top 10, “Silicon Valley” was one of the year’s best new shows and “Modern Family” and “The Big Bang Theory” are very popular shows that sometimes make me laugh. A social satire set in a uniquely stratified world, “Orange Is The New Black” is also sad and infuriating and powerful, but I refuse to blame a show for doing MORE things that I expect from the genre. Jiminy Christmas, I don’t hear people complaining that “Good Wife” is sometimes funny and therefore isn’t a drama. It’s also TV’s deepest ensemble.
