'Orange is the New Black' is back, but of course you're stuck at work all day



We feel you, Tay.

"Orange is the New Black" is back for the highly-anticipated fourth season, and once again Netflix is delivering without working adults in mind.

The 13-episode season is available for streaming as of this morning – just in time to get ready to go to work and enjoy a full eight hours of counting down until binge watch o' clock. (If you start at 5 p.m. this afternoon, you would finish the whole season just after 6 a.m. Saturday morning.)

But for some of you out there, 13 hours is just the tail end of OITNB screen time this month.

Netflix polled 1,613 fans who were eager for the new season and found that 41 percent planned to rewatch all three previous seasons before today, the Hollywood Reporter said.

For now, lament with us and fellow fans about drudging through the next few hours to the bright light at the end of the 8 a.m.-5 p.m. workday tunnel:






For now, you can either hunker down in your cubicle and wait ... or check out this one super fan who had a different idea:


What do people think of it?


The reviews are in and don't worry – with a score of 87 on Metacritic, the show once again has universal acclaim.

Daniel D'Addario of Time Magazine said season four is the "best season so far," and the Telegraph promises a "brilliant, gory start" to the season. But get the tissues ready, because Willa Paskin of Slate said you will definitely cry.
