Ever have a date circled on your calendar for weeks? That’s me. I have had the release date for Orange is the New Black literally circled on my calendar since March and was lucky enough Mother’s Day weekend to get a sneak peek of the first 6 episodes of this season. I am so anxious to see what happens next. Really it one of my must watch Netflix originals. Is it one of yours?
Season 4 debuted today (June 17th, 2016) and as soon as this post is written I am grabbing a soda, some chips and dip and settling in for a night of Netflix with some of my favourite ladies. Netflix did some research recently and found that Orange is the New Black is one of the most re-watched globally! Can you believe that? I can. More than half, just over 53% have re-watched at least one season. Have you? I know I have, so I am one of those repeat offenders.
Can you guess which are the most re-watched episodes?
Let’s see if you are right.

The team at Netfix really did some digging and found out some really cool facts.
