WHY YOU SHOULD BINGE: One of Netflix’s flagship original series, comedy-drama “Orange” has won critical and audience acclaim. With a handful of cliffhanger episodes each season, the show has momentum in its DNA. When yuppie Piper (Taylor Schilling) gets sent to a federal lockup for a past indiscretion, a fish-out-of-water tale quickly becomes a character-driven exploration of race, privilege, identity and sexuality — and that’s just in the first episode. About those wonderful characters: With names like Crazy Eyes and Yoga Jones, you’ll await flashbacks to each inmate’s backstory like a kid on Christmas Eve. PRO TIP: Watch a couple “Star Trek: Voyager” reruns beforehand. Kate Mulgrew (neé Capt. Janeway) plays fiery-maned cell block queen Red in “Orange,” and she puts every scene into warp drive with just a steely glance. WHEN YOU'RE FINISHED, TRY: “Louie.” Similar in big laughs and dark tones.
