Re: Kate Mulgrew - Orange is the New black

They even like OitNB in Israel! http://www.jpost.com/Arts-and-Cultur...kenings-322032

Neat article on the guy behind the Netflix original programming push and the future of "TV".

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment...4697.htmlstory

Kevin Spacey is sure what the future of TV will look like.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_3817956.html

What a concept... "give the people what they want".

You missed Stewart last year?

Bummer. He was awesome!
I've seen him a few times, he was great. Especially if Brent Spiner is at the con too LOL

But I wanted to see him in Boston to finish my cast photo.

Actually at one con he spoke directly to me, we were in the front row and I had just purchased an autograph of Robbie McNeil (it was bigger than an 8x10) and it was laying at my feet while Patrick Stewart was on stage. All of a sudden he comes over to where I'm sitting and asks me for the photo and says "how can I keep talking when this is sitting up here staring at me" and holds up the picture

Re: Kate Mulgrew - Orange is the New black

CAN'T FIX CRAZY... continued

AKA

What goes around, comes around.

(Previously, on OitNB, Chapman played a mean joke on Doggett which landed her in the Psych ward, a place several circles of hell worse than the SHU, where she began to doubt the existence of a God that would let his faithful be so horribly abused.

Once out of the SHU, Doggett has some sort of rapprochement with the blond one, which lead the zealot to think Piper was ready to be baptized and join her prison flock. She was not happy when Piper disrespected her enough to refuse the kingdom of God before her very own followers. So Tiffany decided Piper had to die.)

HEY!

Taystee is Piper's new cube-mate!

You gotta love Taystee. She's sweet and she's insightful, not just about her own plight, but the women around her. And at the moment, that means Piper.

The guards have just completed the daily "count" and Piper turns to sit on her bed, back to the wall, sporting that "12 foot stare in a 10 foot room" look we saw when she first got out of SHU.

Taystee: Heard you broke up with your girl.
Piper: Wow. Twitter's got nothing on "prison".
Taystee: You feel bad?
Piper: I feel like I did what I needed to do.
Taystee: She mad?
Piper: (Very grim) Yep.
Taystee: (She's so matter of fact, its spooky) Mad enough to leave a dead rat on your locker?
Piper: (Turns to look at Taystee) What?

(Taystee points to Piper's locker)

Piper: (Jumps off her bunk) WHOA!!!! WTF No, no, no... she didn't do that. Do you think that thing just crawled up there and died?

(No Piper, I think it crawled up there and committed suicide to protest the injustices suffered by rats everywhere. )

Taystee: Nooo, this is a message rat.

(She uses her comb {shudder} to push the rat off the paper message its guarding)

Taystee: Someone say they gonna kill you. Say right here.

(She points patiently at the block lettered note)

Taystee: See, they meant "You're"... apostrophe R...E. As in "you are gonna die"." But this some ignorant bitch-ass shit.

(Piper is studying the note in Taystee's hand.)

Piper: What's an Amalekite?

(This is where Taystee calls in a consultant with a biblical background. Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Black Cindy!)

Black Cindy: Amalekite? Hmmm. Oh, they real baddies in the bible, attackin' everybody, preying on the weak and shit. A WAR tribe. Ohh, and in "Samuel", God told Saul to KILL EM ALL! UHN! Utterly destroy them motherfuckers. That what God say. Even the babies.

(She points at Taystee for emphasis)

Black Cindy: Even the cows. They so bad they cows had to die!
Taystee: (One track mind?) Say anything about rats?
Black Cindy: (Stops to consider) No.

For some reason, after all these months, Piper has forgotten she's in PRISON and the rules are different here than in Park Slope. She wants to tell someone in "authority" of the threat and its probable source (that "fucking hillbilly", Doggett) but is shot down by both of her advisors.

Taystee tells her TPTB will simply put her into segregation (I think that is... or is like the SHU) so they won't have to "deal" with the threat. When asked what her options were... Black Cindy was blunt.

Black Cindy: KILL that motherfucker! Out!

Like anyone who has received a diagnosis and treatment plan they don't agree with, Piper seeks out more opinions on the subject when she has lunch with her new roomie and Taystee's posse... Poussey, Watson, Black Cindy.

Piper: Maybe she's just trying to engage me, says something about the Amalekites, piques my interest and then she can get me to go to bible study group... She's a weird girl.
Poussey: (Can you read her mind? WTF?) Yeah, "You gonna die" is real vague, TOTALLY open to interpretation.

I love how animated they become when they teach Piper how to "fight girls". I love how Piper laughs at them laughing at her predicament.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWlpOpfH1P4

See Piper... you can have fun eating with people you aren't having sex with, AND learn some useful skills besides.

What goes around... you get the drift by now, right?

You remember the "Kreacher" storyline that I don't like but just like the HP movies couldn't ignore Kreacher when filming Harry Potter, we can't ignore the "love" triangle of Bennett, Daya and Mendez.

We've already discussed this scene...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NWXLHMSfs70



(Well, Bennett believed the lovesick Pornstache and went straight to Daya to tell her the plan backfired.)

John: It was a bad plan. AND you had sex WITH HIM!

(Hmmm. Seems like he has just as much trouble getting by that little fact as Larry has getting by the idea of Piper in the throes of ecstasy with the mysterious Alex. even though Daya reassures John she HATES Mendez.)

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

WHAT?

After the baby is born, Cesar will pick it up and BRING IT TO BENNETT?



What the heck is Bennett going to do with a baby when he's at work???

Or is he going to quit his job to be a stay at home Dad? Then how is he going to pay for the baby food?

Geez... I think Mama Aleida has it right. With THESE TWO for parents, this kid hasn't got a snow ball's chance in hell!

Re: Kate Mulgrew - Orange is the New black

I like this early article with Laura Prepon, especially the part about the dryer.

http://www.afterellen.com/laura-prep...lling/07/2013/

I never considered the possibility of claustrophobia.

I would have been more concerned with folding her 5'10" frame into the pretzel to put her in the barrel of the dryer for hours. (can you say "blood clot?)

This next one is for all you "Game of Thrones" fans.

http://thehairpin.com/2013/08/surviv...ame-of-thrones

I don't know who should be more disturbed at these prognoses... Larry Bloom or George Mendez AKA Pornstache

If you go to the Huffington video website you can watch all 23 minutes of this next Taylor interview... but she never really says anything more than the 30 seconds here predicting that season 2 will delve more deeply into all the characters.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_3819126.html

To be fair to her stumbling response... I'm sure she's trying to remember everything she's NOT allowed to say to prevent "premature spoilage".

Of course TPTB did enough of THAT on their own when they announced


Don't bother with the interview if you want to hear anything about Prepon, that name never came up once in 23 minutes.

Hmmmm.

One of the funny things I noticed about google searching "Laura" isn't that google automatically fills in "prepon" for me, its that one of my choices provided is "Laura Prepon eyebrows".

http://www.buzzfeed.com/samir/what-w...-black-with-di

I know the brows bugged me when I first started watching the show, but I finally realized (for me) the problem was their color. They don't match the hair. Of course, never having watched "That 70's show", I didn't know the actress's natural hair color was red... and thus so are her brows.

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-C3KY3v2zKE...prepon+(6).jpg

Is this another case of Karl Urban/LOTR where they forgot to color his brows in the first movie and so have to forget to do it in the next?

ETA: Ok, so the next eyebrow site I visited said she's a natural brunette and frequently goes around as a blonde... there goes THAT theory!

So, is the disparate hair/eyebrow color a natural choice by TPTB?

LOL re: eyebrows... ain't THAT the truth!

I guess I was prescient this morning, talking about "google searching" Laura's name...

http://www.webpronews.com/laura-prep...google-2013-08

I still wonder how much of this "silliness" is real (IS Laura leaving vs Laura IS leaving) and how much is manufactured to keep OitNB front and center.

As if they needed help, to keep OitNB front and center.

"Sometimes that shit comes back around" by Nicky Nicholls



The girls are putting the finishing touches on the crèche for the Christmas pageant. For reasons I can't fathom, 5'10" Alex is standing by HOLDING the Christmas lights as she feeds them to 5'3.5" Nicky who is STRETCHING UP to thread the lights over the support beams holding up the straw roof.



While this is going on, Alex is trying to goad Morello into revealing who she picked for Secret Santa. "Something", for those of you who've never played S Santa... just isn't done. Morello has obviously played before...

Morello: No.. It's a secret!

Big Boo has played before but knows its more fun to bust Morello's chops than to "be surprised" on Christmas.

Boo: Hah, some secret, you've just finished asking me what my favorite color is and IF my feet get cold.

Morello takes offense and jumps up to yell before stalking away...

Morello: If I was making you slippers, which I am not, I wouldn't be anymore! So you just get used to cold feet that ain't magenta!

Boo utters my favorite line to Nicky, after the Brooklyn-Bostonian stamps away.

Boo: Wow. PLEASE start fucking her again.
Nicky: Yeah, you only get one chance to break MY heart... (then she looks up to Alex as Boo walks away) Hey, remember that Vause.
Alex: Such self restraint, impressive for a junkie.

Nicky reminds the tall one of her loveless/motherless upbringing and her early need to shut people off so she couldn't be hurt anymore.

Alex: Yeah, maybe I should go into training with you.

The lonely hearts club continue to bond in the chapel as we switch gears to another broken heart sitting a few rows away who has just passed a Christmas card to the Nun sitting next to her.

Sophie's son has sent her the card. He didn't write anything in it BUT it was the first time in 3 years "Mom" didn't have to "fake sign" for him.

Sophie: I just wish he'd talk to me.
Sister Ingalls: (Reassures as she hands the card back) He's starting to.

Not so reassuring is the sudden appearance of Suzanne with the call sheet in her hand.

Suzanne: Sisters! You all sure about this part for me?
Sr. Ingalls: Have faith, dear, your voice... resonates.
Suzanne (Beams) Yeah... you right! I should just put the past behind me. NO WAY that could happen again!

(The LOOK on Sophia and Sr. Ingalls face as Suzanne said that and ran away is PRICELESS!)



So, we go from Alex and Nicky stringing up Christmas lights and praying Piper "Gets fat and stops shaving her legs"... to the beginning of the end.

Alex obviously got Larry's letter and just as obviously put him on her visitation list because there he is, sitting in the middle of the room barely keeping himself from jumping up and down to expel all the nervous energy.

Remember... he's never seen her before, but she HAS seen him. He was hugging Piper goodbye months ago while she was doing the same to a short redhead AND winking at Piper over Larry's shoulder.

I may be weird, but I loved that "wink". So ballsy!

As we watch Alex saunter into the room, you have to wonder WHY was she there? Did she just want to meet the man who could take Piper away from her? For THIS she would have to endure a strip search after the visit????

Did she want to tell him off? Threaten him if he didn't "take care" of Piper? Or was it for some other nefarious reason???

As he waits at the table... we hear the usual announcements, "You are allowed 2 hugs. One on arrival and one on departure". As Alex nears the table Larry realizes "its her" and stands to greet her.

Thankfully, he doesn't try to hug her.

Larry: Alex.
Alex: Yeah.
Larry: (small talk? really?) You're uh, tall.
Alex: (Smirks as she sits) So I've been told.

Larry tries to settle himself down to "say his piece"... but he can't settle.

Larry: ... just picturing you... (picturing her what? In person? As a major player in an international drug cartel, as your fiancée's past and VERY RECENT lover? Alex has no trouble "filing in the blanks")
Alex: (Teases) Got you all flustered?

Okay, THAT pissed him off, and off he went, telling this RIVAL to stop fucking up Piper's life and stay away from her.

Alex: Not a problem. She's all yours, champ. We done here? (She starts to leave)

See... For THIS she endure a strip search... I don't think so.

Larry can't believe it was that easy either and he stops her.

Larry: Suddenly she's all mine? When you have been working her over ever since she got here?

Okay, THAT pissed HER off, and off she went telling Larry what 2 lesbians do when they are alone in the chapel after Thanksgiving.

Alex: Working her over? Are you fucking KIDDING me? She came to ME. Dragged ME in that chapel and fucked ME.

Larry is speechless.

Alex: Surprised me too. (Voice takes on a wonder) She never used to be the aggressor. (shakes her head) I guess it was a new color she was trying on.

(And now the vindictive hard hearted drug smuggler personality finally comes out to play... to torture her rival and by extension her former lover)

Alex: Or maybe she was bored. Uhh, who knows.

Like John Bennet and Daya, Larry can't get beyond the idea of his beloved making love with another.

Larry: You fucked in a chapel?
Alex: (She smiles, like a fisherman who's just set the hook... or the spider who feels the fly struggle in her trap.) It's prison, there aren't a whole lot of options. But I'm done. Can't survive another spin on her merry go round, and clearly you're still into it... so (scoffs) enjoy the ride.

Larry is insulted... his relationship with Piper is superior to Alex's... THEY after all, are getting "married".

Alex: Great. So why are you here?

(Good question, Larry... and right back at YOU, Alex.)

Larry: I wanted to meet you...

(he can't finish and she leans in to confide quietly)

Alex: Larry, my heart is with you...

(ALEX! STOP NOW!)

Alex: She's Hot!.. She's read everything.

(OH, What a tangled...)

Alex: (SIGHS) We BOTH know what she's like in bed.
(...web we weave...)

Alex: But she is fucked up!

(...when first we practice...)

Alex: I know it, and you do too.

(...to deceive )

Alex: Or else you wouldn't be here "warning me" to stay away... I'm not your problem.

And with that, the spider stands up and walks away from the helpless fly caught in her web.

She'll finish him off later, if she needs a laugh.

Oh, Piper... karma is a bitch... but more importantly, for the woman who's read everything but comprehended nothing... here's a suggestion.

You better go back to William Congreve's "The Mourning Bride" because you've obviously forgotten a very important point.

"Heaven has no rage like love to hatred turned, Nor hell a fury like a woman scorned,"

Oh Alex.

Re: Kate Mulgrew - Orange is the New black

An interesting review from a more scholarly POV...

http://www.commonwealmagazine.org/bl...ge-new-black-0

Love and agree with the thesis of this next article...

http://bookriot.com/2013/08/21/orang...k-and-tv-show/

Orange is the New Black is a fine memoir. Orange is the New Black is a revolutionary first season of television.

I'm only as far as #2 in this list of 25 things to do/watch/read while waiting for season 2 and #2 is so scary I have to stop and read the full article.

http://flavorwire.com/411416/25-thin...he-new-black/2

I feel sorry for the actress suffering the idiots in our fandom who can't separate the actress from the character.

Need a Piper-Alex fix...




Here's another article on multiple shows, (not just OitNB) that talks about the return of "intelligent" television.

Yet another article on one of Julliard's finest...

This next guy is calling on NERDS everywhere to spend their Labor Day weekend catching up with the women of Litchfield prison.

http://www.nerdist.com/2013/08/binge...the-new-black/

And in the interest of full disclosure, since the nerd references this video...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4scFQOfJFV8

so will I.



Nerds aren't the only ones being exhorted to watch OitNB "this weekend"... although to be honest, this lady was advising the weekend binge 7 weekends ago.

"Sometimes that shit comes back around" by Nicky Nicholls

Before I get into the truly scary stuff... I have to mention something I LIKED about this ep.

The fact that we finally got a Latina storyline that WASN'T related to that darned "Kreacher" story.

As much as I hate losing Red in the Kitchen, it was nice to finally see the Latina's chatting and working and not looking several times the fool fighting over some studly drug pusher (Cesar) back home, or some bionic correction officer here, or some chicken running loose on the grounds.

I liked that first scene of the four younger Latinas (Daya, Flaca, Maritza, and Maria) were making tamales and they started talking about "Christmas at home".

It was nice because the women were sharing and finally talking to one another instead of fighting or withdrawing from one another. Sure, the other girls still busted on Daya for needing even the simplest of things translated...

Daya: Please, speak English.
Flaca: How about you learn Spanish?

... but they are finally talking. Unfortunately, they are talking about the men in their families who are child molesters. Maria, the woman who recently gave birth, seemed proud to relate how HER mother dealt with her "fucking perv" of a cousin when he was caught "messing" with Maria's niece. Lets just say it has something to do with a BRICK and that cousin Frankie's face is no longer symmetrical.

We also learn in this ep that Maritza (the shorter of the 2 Latinas that are ALWAYS together (but not that way, as we'll soon discover) has a 1 year old daughter. She happily explains her daughter is with her cousin at a marimacha collective... "not a dick for miles."

(Thank god for the internet... http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...term=Marimacha)

Flaca: (concerned) You ain't worried they'll turn her gay?
Maritza: (Scoffs) She's a baby! And I only got a year. I'll get her back before she knows anything.

This wonderful vignette is eventually interrupted by Nicky's arrival and crass joke, "IMMIGRATION. Hands where I can see them."

Aleida's rejoinder was quick, "Funny, cabrona"... which I'll translate for Daya.

Your Mama just called that blanca a bitch.

And rightly so.

"Sometimes that shit comes back around" by Nicky Nicholls

Now its time for the scary part of "that shit comes back around."

In the show... we've just seen that tete e tete between Larry & (ALEX! STOP NOW!) his romantic rival, Vause.

The next scene is a bit of a "Christmas Miracle" for Piper. She's actually in the shower/bathroom... ALONE.

But not for long.

Dogget and 2 from her pack have just entered. One stays behind to intercept anyone else who might want to shower this late, while Leanne follows Tiffany like a flipping puppy right up to Piper's stall as Tiffany rips the curtain aside.

Tiffany: Hey COLLEGE!

Piper gasps as she does the "duck and cover" move to hide her nakedness from the meth-head turned zealot.

Piper: What are you...
Tiffany: Don't be acting all modest. You are about as indecent as they come. (so says the woman who killed another because she was teased about getting her 6th abortion free. )
Piper: (Conciliatory as she continues to cover herself) Okay... let me dry off and we can talk about this.

(The voice of the lookout is now heard off camera.)

Lookout: (OC) Bathroom's full... (Now we see Taystee looking disgusted at the white bitch in her way) ... try back later.

Taystee looks around the woman in her way, sees Doggett and Leanne have cornered her roomie in the shower AND SHE JUST WALKS AWAY!

Tiffany: (Mouthing the end of a toothbrush) I don't want to talk.

(Am I the only one who is shocked to discover Tiffany OWNS a toothbrush?)

Piper: I am not going to let you intimidate me, Tiffany... What do you want?

(You might be more believable if you weren't still cowering, Piper. Rent some Netflix DVDs of Xena: Warrior Princess to see how a naked woman should act when she encounters a threat. 1st 15 seconds... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCIDnDSlZvU )

Tiffany: (She gets all "shucks" as Leanne smirks in the background) What do I want? Hmmm. I want you, to feel the same pain on your body, as you have made me feel in my heart.

Piper looks worried.

She looked worried even BEFORE Doggett shows the OTHER end of her toothbrush.

It looks just like that shiv Pornstache showed the girls during their prison orientation.

Tiffany is very proud of her creation.

Tiffany: I know, I know, its not much. But its sharp, its sharp. (Looks back at Leanne for confirmation, smiling) Do you wanna see it?

((Okay, you're naked, in a prison shower, without backup, and a meth head stands before you with a SHIV, asking if you wanna see how SHARP it is... so what do you think is going to happen next?

Nope.)

Piper looks like she's about to hyperventilate and her eyes grow wide... but instead of taking the shiv against Piper's alabaster skin... Tiffany instead draws it across the palm of her own left hand slowly, allowing us to see the blood that it causes.

With a hand full of her own blood, Tiffany steps into the shower with her nemesis and wipes the blood all over Piper's chest, as if she's marking her prey.

All Piper can do is shudder as she's backed into the stall and caressed by her tormentor.

Cut to the door to the bathroom, the Calvary HAS ARRIVED!

The lookout wolf whistles as she stands her ground against the white male officer.

Donaldson: OUT!
Lookout: (Looking helpless?) I thought only LADY CO's can go in the bathrooms.

He stands in front of the lookout, and raises his voice once more.

Donaldson: HEY! This is NOT your assigned bathroom! You are out of bounds. OUT NOW!

(Leanne hears and obeys as she drops away from Tiffany and leaves the shower. The lookout snarls like a junk yard dog before she gives up her post and walks away. Dogget stays IN the shower with Piper, waving the bloody end of the shiv in her face.)

(The CO's still standing where the lookout was... so he can't "see" anything, much less hear Tiffany as she whispers behind her hand to the object of her obsession.)

Tiffany: I guess next time we're gonna get more creative. That's okay.
Donaldson: Doggett!
Tiffany: I've got some other ideas.
Donaldson: DOGGETT!
Tiffany: Yes, yes, yes, yes... coming!

As Doggett reassures Donaldson who is still out of sight around the corner, she eyes Piper with a sickly smile and grabs the wall of the shower with her bloody hand... marking one last time what she considers her "territory" before she skips away.

Piper is in shock. She turns the shower on to wash away the blood as her roomie comes in to check on her.

Taystee: You okay?

Piper stands wet and naked before this most experienced of inmates in her circle, as she admits shakily...

Piper: No. I'm not equipped to deal with this. I have to tell someone.
Taystee: (Scoffs) Please. She's a bitty thing. You can take her. Easy. And when you do, score is settled. Girl... stop being a bitch-ass bitch.

Taystee hands Piper her own towel to cover up with. As Piper winds it around her torso, Taystee (who started this whole series commenting on Piper's "TV titties" 13 eps ago) advises...

Taystee: You got a little blood on your nip-nip there. Rinse that off.

Taystee shakes her head as she walks away from the silly white woman who is still in shock...wondering how she went from living the yuppie dream in Park Slope with her fiancé, starting a new business with her best friend to having to fight a meth head or fear for her life every time she takes a shower.

Not just every time she takes a shower... but every time she is "alone".

Even if being alone means being in the middle of a barracks full of women who are sleeping blissfully.

But Piper can't sleep tonight.

No matter how tired she is.

She can't even lay down.

We watch her perch in the middle of her bunk, back against the wall, listening for any sound that could be out of place.

Listening for the soft step of doom stalking her.

Waiting one last time... for that shit to come back around.

Re: Kate Mulgrew - Orange is the New black



I am so old, or so out of it, I didn't know this was a term the first few times Taystee used it.
