Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Friday

Netflix

Orange Is the New Black Netflix

If you get Netflix, then you really ought to try this series. It’s thoroughly engrossing, as it follows a yuppie into a low-security prison for an old drug-related crime. Made by Jenji Kohan of “Weeds,” the show is funny but also dramatic, and all of the female characters are fully fleshed out, Taylor Schilling’s Martha Stewart-type heroine most of all. All 13 episodes are available right now, but I recommend spacing them out and savoring them across the summer.

Ray Donovan Sunday at 10 p.m., Showtime

My autocorrect and I have been going through a rough patch lately, since “Ray Donovan” premiered. Every time I type Liev, my autocorrect changes it to Live. Such a power struggle. But I digress. This new series is great, not least of all thanks to lead actor Liev (durn it) Schreiber, who plays a nice guy from Southie who also happens to be a bit of a monster.

Teen Beach Movie 8 p.m., Disney
