Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

I wish I hadn't read that actually, it has major implications for Piper's storyline. It's not like Alex is my favourite character, but I loved the chemistry she had with Piper.

I read another casting announcement by accident the other day, which has ruined something else for me too.

If you want a show that doesn't take risks or change you are watching the wrong show. This is by the woman who changed Weeds around at least once a season.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

For the record, Netflix has officially denied that Prepon is being written out next season. I got the impression from what I read though that this could "change'.

I like Prepon but this show has so many chracters with such diverse and interesting stories, and great acting and writing, I doubt I'll miss "Alex", and I did like her.

I never knew Prepon had such a nice rack. Is that wrong?

True. It just caught me off guard that one of the best things about the first season would be disappearing. I obviously never learnt my lesson from Game of Thrones.

To be fair, their relationship was non-existent by the end of the season due to Piper rejecting Alex for Larry. I suppose they could go anywhere now. And of course Netflix says it's not even confirmed that Alex is leaving, so it's all too soon.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

Ah yes I heard that too Seven of Five, or should I call you Crazy Eyes? (I so love that character).

I never got that impression, actually. I fully anticipated that character to return. I'll keep the spoiler, though.

I downloaded it and it's my most played song on Itunes right now. So catchy.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

Really like the show. Probably one of the best shows in the past decade. The casting was pretty much perfect and the writing was tight.

It's a cool tune and it's interesting because (while I haven't listened exhaustively to her) it doesn't sound like her usual music from what I've heard. Bet that song's done OK for her, you get pretty hooked binging to Orange.
