Piper Chapman: Dislike-able Protagonist AND Future Heroine?

Disney-Princesses-Wallpaper-disney-princess-6248012-1024-768

If Piper was 100% likeable, the show would be too perfect: an innocent white girl in prison, surrounded by gritty criminals.  Boring.  The show would probably fall victim to many of the TV sitcom stereotypes and would be predictable. Piper-The-Perfect-Princess would win over all the inmates in proper, Disney Princess fashion and rehabilitate them into perfect people, like her.  There, I called it.  (I wrote last week on the specific ones I hope the show avoids in its writing).

The portrayal of Piper as dislike-able makes the show feel a little more realistic and less campy.
