I don't see a good endgame for the entire Dala thing. Yes Pornstash will end up ion jail for what he did, but that can't happen with a paternity test if he has good lawyers. That test will show he isn't the father and then all hell will break lose.

Season 2 episode 3: I love the little touches this show has. Like when Red is facing down the new character, the music playing is reminiscent of the music from right before the final shootout in The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

It isn't fatherhood sending him to jail, its sex.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

Yeah. However had he said nothing he could force the test and prove it wasn't him.

Edit: Finished season 2. Lots of good stuff in there. Now I wait for season 3 of House of Cards...

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

Just finished as well... What a great season... Read up on the real Piper's story.. Ineresting the differences and correlations going on here..

The Asian activist character could do with developing.. For as deep as she was trying to be, she just came off as 2 dimensional.. Hot though.. Very hot..

The real Piper only spent 15 months in jail, so while this show is technically based on her memoirs, I see it having real legs to continue on without her.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

I loved all the backstories this season. I'm usually terrible with backstories, feel like they interrupt the flow of the story and are dull, see SG:U. But Orange's are great and I'm hanging out for all the ones we didn't get and to see more of the ones we only got partially.

The more we learn about the people in this story, the more I'm shocked about what we don't know.

For instance, what did Red actually do to land in prison?

For that matter, what did Norma & Anita (the sleep apnea Italian) do because they have both been in as long (if not longer in Norma's case) as Red.

They had crazy eyes on Elvis Duran this morning. She sounds the same, but certainly not as crazy.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

To be fair, SGU's not a very good example of that style of storytelling. Lost is a better one. Lost seems to be what popularized that style of picking one character to tell parallel stories between past and future in ways that play off each other.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

I couldn't stand the Lost backstories either. But then I somehow missed the point of Lost, I spent several seasons fuming over how they failed to eat the polar bear.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

I just started watching Batman: The Animated Series and there's a character called Red Claw who sounded an awful lot like Red. Same voice, same accent. I looked her up and as I suspected, she was voiced by Kate Mulgrew.

The episode is from 1992.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

SPOILER ALERT:

I finished the season and I loved it more than the 1st season. I enjoyed all the back stories because they made me see these woman as human instead of just scenery in the background or a prop for the story.

V's storyline was real good and at first I thought she was a criminal with a heart until the big reveal that she is a crazy murdering psycho chick.

The biggest shock was the cancer lady. Even though the clues were there I did not know she actually was the Hispanic/Italian hot chick bank robber until the very end when she was driving off and she morphed from the cancer ridden bald lady into the hot Italian/hispanic chick! I was like, "OH MY GOODNESS!!!! I didn't catch on that she was the bank robber chick whose boyfriends always died when she kissed then before and after each robbery!"

Really looking forward to Season 3.

Re: Netflix Presents: Orange is the New Black

^ She did tell the kid during chemo that she robbed banks, so when I saw that first bank robbery flashback, I knew it was her even though the actress they cast didn't look like her older counterpart.

^^ And that was one of the reasons she was so upset when she thought the kid was dying... because she thought her curse (that all the men in her life died) had come to rest on him.
