Orange Is The New SVU

30+ OITNB CAST ON LAW & ORDER SVU

Today is a very big day for Netflix bingers. The long awaited Season 5 of Orange Is The New Black has finally been released.

Between Seasons 4 [which premiered in November 2016 and which I finished in 3 days] and today's relese of 5, I binged hard, I binged after binge, new series and old. When I say old series I refer to series released on television pre the digital age of Hulu and Netflix. If Orange Is The New Blackers are anything like myself, they like fucked up shit. What is the most fucked up beloved series in its 18th season still going strong as the longest running prime time drama currently on television?: Law & Order SVU [Seasons 1-18 available on Hulu]. The shows are remotely similar in that SVU covers the committing of a crime [sex crimes in particular] followed by the trial, and Orange documents the prison time. Regardless, I came across a ton of characters thought I saw for the first time on Orange, but actually were staring me in the face over the countless years I have been glued to SVU marathons on NBC, TBS, etc. on cable television. I was fascinated. So, if you love Orange Is The New Black, here's the scoop on the also 'fucked up' characters the cast has played on Law & Order Special Victims Unit.
