The redone chart is also a bit unclear. What's the x-asis again?

MH

I agree with the previous commenter. While the initial chart is confusing and far too busy, I can at least work out what it's trying to tell me, given enough time. However, the redone chart is objectively worse, given that you could never figure out what it's trying to display without a title or x-axis label.

YV/MH: The chart wasn't intended as a direct replacement but I have added the several missing elements so it is closer to finished. Also, this is still a work-in-progress because the story line related to Orange is the New Black would need some further development. I wanted to show the importance of finding a story in the data. The original version can't be salvaged any other way.
