Exclusive Preview | ‘MAD Magazine’ # 541

It’s almost time for a new issue of MAD Magazine!

This week, MAD Magazine # 514 will hit digital a week before it comes to newsstands, and one of this issue’s targets is the popular Netflix original series, Orange is the New Black

Orange is the New Black is unquestionably a huge hit for Netflix, and the first show to get a full seven seasons. But even a great comedy/drama can be a chore to get through, especially if you try to do it all at once. That’s the premise behind our exclusive preview of MAD‘s “Binge Watching “Orange is the New Black” and Doing Actual Prison Time,” by writer Kenny Keil and artist Anton Emdin. According to this parody, neither one will make you a productive member of society, but you may fall in love with someone named Crazy Eyes!
