And it was the 5 episodes that really captivated me to think this was an amazing series. I actually forgot what Moscow Mule was about, but then all the episodes seem to blur together if you're on a binge.

Believe it or not, "Pennsatucky", real name, Taryn something or other, has a (old) nude layout in Playboy. She, apparently, is "hot".

I've been trying to get my sister to watch. But she is hung up on the fact that it is set in a prison. I keep telling her that it's not like any prison show, ever, but she is stubborn.

Tell her the ladies at the Trekkbbs HIGHLY recommend the show.

As does Time Magazine...

As does Slate.com

http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/...fun_watch.html

As does Variety

http://variety.com/2013/digital/revi...ix-1200504709/

As does the Wall Street Journal.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...370691240.html

The New York Times review is a bit tepid... but I wonder if that is in part due to its "role" in the series.

http://tv.nytimes.com/2013/07/11/art...ix-series.html

The New Yorker likes it much more... and coined my fav line... "its like the love child of Oz and The L Word."

http://www.newyorker.com/arts/critic...ision_nussbaum

ETA: A great discussion about why this show/series will do better on netflix vs regular TV.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

You give some one food for a month and lock them in a box for a month, they'll be dead after a week.

Budgeting is more difficult if you're not locked in a box.

"Normal people" can't watch boxsets, or netflix season drops.

They just sit down turn on the tv and watch what ever is on.

They;re also angry because nothing on tv makes any sense any more because of all the episodes they have missed because TIVO is too expensive.

If you are "here" you are not normal.

Normal people have not see every episode of any series, even M*A*S*H* or Friends.

Well, made it through to the end. I gotta say, I don't think I've ever really took notice of anything I've seen Taryn Manning in before but she's really impressed me as Pennsatucky.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

Just finished it today. Took me a while to get in to it but I really enjoyed it by the end. Glad I knew there was a second season in the works when I reached the end.

This was posted in the Voy thread, with a link called "5 stages of OITNB.

The 5 stages vid can NOT compete with this one!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGQw35LhpFY

Although like the girl in the 5 stage vid, once I was done with this, I was screaming for season 2!

Full of spoilers, so watch at your own risk!

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

Well, this is upsetting. I just saw this on my twitter feed:

Link

Netflix's Orange Is the New Black is losing one of its leading ladies.


Netfix's 'Orange Is the New Black': 'Just Like the Hamptons' -- Only Horrible (Video)
Laura Prepon will not return as a series regular when season two of the drama returns, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
As first reported by BuzzFeed, Prepon will only return to the Lionsgate TV-produced drama to wrap up her story line though the door remains open for the actress to return to the series.
That dynamic between Piper and Alex was one of the great things about Season 1. We'll see how this goes, but I thought this storyline would be something that was the core as long as this was a series. Oh well. Still sad though.
