John de Lancie as the warden would be awesome, not just because of the Trek connection but because he's friends with Kate Mulgrew. Plus, he can handle the same brand of humor we've gotten from the rest of the prison staff.
This is the grreatest idea EVER.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

Just finished watching season two last night, and I loved it. The finale was pretty much perfect in the way it concluded many of the year's threads.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

(Just watched season 2 ep 8)

Does anyone else think Healy is being written inconsistently? He's acting now more like he acted at the start of season 1, but it's hard to believe the same behavior coming out of the man we saw at the end of season 1.

Is there any indication in the series how much time has passed since Piper entered prison? Or are they hiding that so they can say that whenever they decide to end the series, 15 months have now passed?

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

Healey is on a pendulum swing. He tries to get his identity from stuff that just isn't working out. He's a tough asshole prison guy who doesn't take any crap, big man in his mind.. and that doesn't work out because you know, he gets no credit for it and everyone hates him. He's a loving adoring husband of his beautiful russian bride, he only wants to please her.. and that doesn't work out because she never warms to him one little bit. I suspect he will swap these two ideas he has about who he is completely by season 3, pumping all his "I am so sensitive, I care" stuff into the prison women and turning into tough guy, I'm taking no more shit in his marriage.

All of it will fail.

We never saw summer and it looks like spring, so I'm guessing that it's around that time. We do know that they're past Valentine's Day. I remember reading that they plan to shoot season 3 this summer so I'm guessing that it'll be summer in season 3. At this rate, they can make it to season 5 easily enough. They can even extend the show further if they condense the timeline near the end of the show's run. They did that with The Shield where the last three seasons took place within 3 or 4 months.

The Christmas Pageant was the night of the fight and Piper landed in the infirmary (presumably) that night. She was then in the SHU x 3 weeks before being shipped to the land of deep dish pizza for several more weeks. She did arrive home before Valentine's Day but I doubt we're half way through March since it didn't seem like any of the trees were budding in the finale.

Since Piper's mom is still talking about her daughter only being in prison another 8 months, they have to take the timeline slowly. Sure, Piper should get more time for the perjury, but I like the tight pacing this almost real time living gives us. It's like we're experiencing the slow passage of time with the inmates.

If things move too quickly then before you know it stalkers and butch screw driver aficionados are let out to prey upon innocent brides.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

^ Yeah, by spring, I was thinking March or so. Not technically spring, but spring enough.

I too wondered if she'd get a longer sentence so that the show could be extended further but nothing on that front so far, and they've had two opportunities. First the fight in the season 1 finale and then the perjury. Doesn't look like they'll be pressing charges on the latter.

I think that his character has been purposely inconsistent. We see him struggling to form his identity. He tries to be compassionate and then feels like he gets no gratitude for it, so he swings back in the opposite direction and acts like an asshole. Then he regrets it and so goes back to caring nice guy. He's a volatile individual, which is I think a good portrayal of what someone in his situation would be feeling/doing.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

Do they have any way to prove she committed perjury? The only two people who know for sure are either career criminals or lawyers who is legally bound to confidentiality.

And even if they could prove Piper met him, she did not say she never met him, she said she couldn't remember. That's very hard to disprove, and she can always say that she was so completely focused on Alex that she wasn't paying attention to names and faces.

You know what would be funny? If they filmed an alternate ending to Orange Is The New Black where Red said "Computer, end program", and then walked into the sunset with Jeri Ryan.

When Larry's dad visited her the 1st time in jail, he asked her questions the prosecutors would ask. Then he led her to speak with them. Later in the court, the prosecutor is shocked to hear her claim she didn't remember. I assume that's because he's already interviewed her with her lawyer in attendance.

Now, can she claim she lied in the pretrial hearing and told the truth on the stand? Sure. But what if during Alex's testimony she mentions she and Piper met Kubra many times? The prosecutor might go after Piper just to get a conviction on SOMEONE.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

Just watched the finale. LOVED the final scene, that's how you build up to a payoff.

I suppose they have enough to go after Piper, so then it could come down to whether they feel it would be worth their time and money. I doubt Alex brought up Piper in her testimony, since Piper only met Kubra a few times and Alex was in frequent contact with him.
