Re: Kate Mulgrew - Orange is the New black

Well, THIS review of the finale/first season gives quite the visual!

First things first, everyone please stand up and give Orange Is the New Black the standing ovation it deserves and throw some bras on stage (you too, guys), because Season 1 was fantastic and a visual handbook on how not to screw up television.

http://www.tv.com/shows/orange-is-th...-137695245841/ And the finale isn't even his favorite ep of the season!

That honor goes to Tall Men with Feelings...

http://www.tv.com/shows/orange-is-th...-137634390908/

and this great description of the central love affair...

Alex and Piper's relationship was and is one of those fiery, tumultuous affairs where the hots are surface-of-the-sun blazing and the colds are the-other-side-of-Pluto frigid.

I liked his intro to F*cksgiving and Moscow Mule...

But Orange Is the New Black's comedy is best when it's more black than orange, when it finds hope in times of bleakness, and when the worlds of privileged blondes are blown up.

http://www.tv.com/shows/orange-is-th...-137546438918/

...although I disagree with his thesis that Red's backstory/all backstory's should be as "complete" as Sophia's and Miss Claudette's. I liked how Red's backstory is mostly teased, here and there, as is her present life.

Think about it... we hear about her sons & their wives in the finale, but we NEVER hear about Red's husband in the current sense.


Is he dead?

Did he turn her in?

Is he in another prison?

I like that... in the sense that it means there is more story to unfold.

Speaking of backstory... I soooo disagree with his take on Nicky's story.

While I wouldn't call the backstory we saw for Nicky in "WAC Pack" a break from the show's M.O., she certainly got shafted in comparison to previous flashbacks. Two measly rewinds, that's it? One was with her mom after Nicky had just gotten out of surgery, and the other was with her prison mom when she had a bad case of withdrawal right after entering prison. There was no story to them, just quick check-ins that told us what we already knew: Nicky has tangled with drugs, and it sucked. And that's probably the toughest part, because we didn't learn anything about the character at the center of the flashback,

http://www.tv.com/shows/orange-is-th...-137512013051/

Good heavens... we learned why Nicky became a druggie, and why Red became so important so quickly to Nicky. A relationship that fueled the next few eps when she turned Tricia away from "the family" and when she outed Red to Mendez and guilt tripped over same before & after Tricia's death.

A new photo from the set...

http://www.webpronews.com/orange-is-...s-cell-2013-09

... although I agree it isn't Pennsatucky's cell, there doesn't seem to be enough books for it to be Sr. Ingalls cell.

Hmmm, somehow I missed the Parade magazine teaser about our show...

http://www.parade.com/63393/nancyber...ck-is-red-hot/

... and I certainly agree with #3

3. Audiences connect to multidimensional characters.
OITNB has managed to craft multidimensional characters where even the worst ones have a relatable quality, experience or dream. From killer Miss Claudette Pelage (Michelle Hurst) to chief kitchen convict Red (Kate Mulgrew), each episode manages to build on audience attachment.

Oh my...

http://www.webpronews.com/orange-is-...street-2013-08

...after watching that "Sons of Anarchy/Sesame Street" parody, I think we are going to be gyped if we don't get a "OitNB" Sesame street parody too.

This will probably be Piper's theme next season.

Damn.

Hi Maddy.....Good to see you here...Love the pics you send out every day.

Re: http://instagram.com/p/d8sH2RxjGR# The Religious cell pic...

I am going to go way out on a limb here ........and guess.....Red.

Those pics look more like Russian Orthodox icon pics than any thing Catholic. Since Red is not in the kitchen anymore and has the time.....maybe she has taken up religion...

Hello "one and only Larry internet fan"... I think there's a 12 step program somewhere that can help you with that problem.

True, but the "Our Lady of Guadalupe" prayer card suggests a Central American bent, which could mean any of the Hispanic Catholics OR Sr. Ingalls.

Speaking of Red Reznikov... I was surprised you didn't "bring her over today from the Vegas thread.



I LOVE that wink!!!!!




Hey... did anyone catch the Katie COuric show today?

Re: Kate Mulgrew - Orange is the New black




I think "Katie Red" should be this thread's masthead... don't you?

Let's get this "one" over with first.

It's not a question of whether I believe it or not.

It's a question of whether I CHOOSE to believe it, which for my ever loving shipper heart's sake... I DO NOT!

http://www.buzzfeed.com/kateaurthur/...of-orange-is-t

Here's a blurb on the negative aspects of dealing with Netflix as your US distributor,

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment...,4532301.story

Another comment on the prescience of OitNB at predicting Fashion Week's color trend this year.

http://www.elle.com/fashion/trend-re...-black#slide-1

Who's cell does this belong to?

http://www.designntrend.com/articles...ell-photos.htm

I think this is just a repackaging of another "article", but if not...

http://www.latinospost.com/articles/...ide-prison.htm

I didn't realize that Dascha was a mom.

http://www.nydailynews.com/entertain...icle-1.1452628

Like I said... college is back in session... although I would have described them as "the supporting characters", NOT the "smaller" characters when describing the roots of OitNB's success.

http://badgerherald.com/artsetc/2013...is-the-new-bl/

Another commentary about OitNB's deficiencies in the overall discussion on prison/minority issues in America BUT this one is much more positive on the show's potentials. My only beef is I wish these writers would "fact check" the show more, when discussing it. No-one went to the SHU over the chicken incident. The black/white disparity was IIRC white Piper gets a slap on the wrist and the black inmate lost visitation rights x 2 weeks. (Never did hear what happened to Red and Gina)

http://www.windycitymediagroup.com/l...dom/44359.html


If she's leaving...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4uAJJFgJxI

she better leave a very BIG wound in one WASPy heart, one that isn't healed by episode 2.

Re: Kate Mulgrew - Orange is the New black

At least the interviewer asked the question... (Alex) but sadly Taryn has learned not to answer it.

http://www.buzzfeed.com/lyapalater/t...edium=buzzfeed

Here's more of the Katie Couric interview.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-3zSnlv6uM



Here's an "old" interview from TS's Vanity Fair shoot.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNB5Y16gez0



I love this poster (hope the link works)

http://oitnb.com/#prettyPhoto/1/

I especially love the dryer icon, and the count of the # of times Piper has been electrocuted!

We need a music vid of Red, set to that song, NOW!

Should we be worried that we haven't heard of Mulgrew being on the set so far this summer?

After all that stuff about Prepon, could TPTB be benching two of their most popular characters to focus on others?

I don't think I could survive the loss of Red AND Alex.
