You know there are TVs, magazines, and more in prison -especially a minimum security one, right?

I mean no shit it’s a tv show and there are magazines and TV in prison but if the writers are trying to keep it true to the context than they would have to consider that someone who was put away in 2010 would not really understand Instagram or using hashtags. I think the show has done a great job of shining light issues like the immigration crisis, but every time the inmates make a 2019 pop culture reference I cringe a little bit

I always thought the hashtag conversations made sense. Usually, one person is explaining it to the others and the others are realistically behind in understanding this because they’re in prison. The one person that understands might know because they have a phone, the prison rebellion from last season, family members, etc.

How interesting it is that the language ‘English’ restricted us to think what we can possibly think/experience/learn.
