i love orange is the new black! def one of my favorite shows. Red was my favorite and I feared for her safety multiple times during the show, lol. I also adored Morello, Poussey, and Taystree.

I felt I related to Piper in a lot of ways so I loved her too. I LOATHED Alex. Sort of in a good way though.

I feel like Alex is seriously manipulative/abusive (SPOILER) especially after the shit she pulled on Piper this new season : /

I'm really curious to see how people feel about the Piper/Alex stuff happening now. I saw a bunch of vitriol directed at Piper a few days ago and I couldn't help but feel very unnerved by that. Granted, I didn't know the context of the hate posts I saw. They could've been very well justified since Piper hasn't exactly been an angel either.

THANK YOU everyone in this fandom seems to really worship alex vause but she is so emotionally abusive it makes me sort of sick? so yeah I really just could not like her at all. But at the same time I admire they made a character not physically strong, but emotionally monstrous because you don't really see that as often in media and yeah. They did a mix of emotional AND physical power with Vee though and as much as I hated her I was like DANG it's been awhile since I've seen a character (that is just a typical human being) be this twisted.

Piper hasn't been an angel, but damn everyone else is so much worse. I find it hard to blame Piper for much because she was the one used. She was the one thrown into prison unfairly and while it wasn't right for her to (SPOILER) cheat on larry I sort of don't blame her because she's in prison and her mind is already getting all jumbled up and her emotions are running wild not to mention the fact (SPOILER) THE WHOLE MEDIA SHIT LARRY PULLED WTF AND DATING HER BEST FRIEND WHILE AIDING HER IN CHEATING ON HER HUSBAND WHO SHE HAS A BABY WITH??? is so much worse than piper being emotionally confused and making a mistake

i think people put too much blame on piper tbh! not saying they shouldnt be mad at her for instance her tiny spoiler white privilege rant she did I LAUGHED WHEN SUZANNE THREW FOOD AT HER i was just like me 2 suzanne

I've just started watching episode 9 of season 1. I love this show.

Mainly because there's not a character I dislike? I hated Alex at first but I've kind of come round to her (SPOILER) even though I get that she's an emotionally manipulative evil person and stuff.

EDIT: Sophia for president. I fucking love her.

EDIT 2: What the fuck is episode 9 season 1 Healy's deal with Piper I want to punch him in the face.

EDIT 3: Hahahahaha omg that school visit episode

(SPOILER) since piper is the main character, i feel like it only makes sense for the audience to be seduced by alex to some degree as well.

she's a really interesting character, and i do think she genuinely loves piper. but she is extremely manipulative of her. that's just her character.


i would say i don't hate any character............ but then healy. i used to hate larry a LOT but i really appreciated him and pauline this season. he's just awful to/for piper, but i think he gets to really exercise his positive qualities interacting with other people.

Healy is a typical "nice guy". He always claims he's nice// trying to be nice but he's really just an ignorant swine. (SPOILER) NEVER GONNA FORGIVE HIM FOR JUST STANDING THERE WHILE PIPER WAS ATTACKED

Okay so done with season 2
looneymoon wrote: PREPARE TO HAVE YOUR HEART RIPPED TO SHREDS
Very light season 2 spoilers Okay I saw this comment at around ep 3 and for the remaining 10 episodes of the season I was sitting on nails - even when things just sort of worked themselves out I was like NOOO SOMETHING BAD IS GOING TO HAPPEN NOOOOOO I was expecting a death by that comment!

I found that whole arch a bit unrealistic at first, but I need to remember it was all Vee - playing their human need for a 'family'. Vee is, although slightly unoriginal, a good character. She was more of an 'out in the open' manipulative character, which is kind of different compared to all the other characters (introduced in season 1) who are all kind of... manipulative in their own way, but not so self conscious/ direct about it. It's good they put in a proper bully character in there - I have to say though, although we got to see some of Red's more human sides, I kind of missed her BAMF side. (But then the old ladies' club took that role. OMG. Hahaha. Didnt' see that coming.)

Overall I found this season not as good as the first - it was more playing a stereotypical kind of storytelling than the first season, but that's all right. It's a TV show - if they want to keep this going, they need to add in a bit more typical TV drama (and comedy) stuff.

I also kind of didn't like what they did to Fig. How they wrote her. idk. Fig's choices were always Figs to me, due to a long life of being cynical. I understand they needed to break out her vulnerabilities, but I didn't expect them to be related to relationships. I never saw her as that kind of woman.

Also that whole Soso arch did nothing for me. Nothing.


Top season 2 moments:

Season 2 spoilers
* The scenes between Healy and Pennsatucky - very interesting
* All of the scenes with Rosa - when I understood she would be Vee's end (about around episode 10) she played it in a way that I didn't mind the trope of 'dying person making the last sacrifice' (because this is a definite trope.) The actress made me believe in that choice. She is absolutely brilliant.
* The scenes between Piper's best friend (name, sorry) and Larry. You just know it's inevitable - and in it's treachery, something very, very real. They're finally being honest about themselves.
* Sofia playing cards with her son
* That white female guard, she had a lot of good moments this season
* ...and her boyfriend singing to those nuns, lol
* Poussay's backstory, when her father says something like 'she's fine, thank you very much' in the last scene of the backstory - such a powerful moment

And finally
* That last scene with Suzanne where she's holding the UNO game, BREAK MY HEART WILL YOU

Just finally started watching this. I'm onto episode 5.

Words can't express how much I love this show and how much I'm regretting not getting into it sooner. I love Crazy Eyes. I also have a woman crush on Alex. I didn't realise how graphic the show was, but that's fine as it just makes it that more realistic.

So I'm underway with season 3 and...

I'm gutted that Nicky's gone. Please bring her back, she's one of my favourites.

Loving this angry-sex thing Piper and Alex have got going! Rawr.

I can't wait for the truth about Vee to come out. I really like Crazy Eyes and want to see how her reaction is to the news.

Dammit, I finished the season. It was too good not to just keep watching. Now there is a hole in my life ;-;

Entire season spoilers

So my "piscatella! <3" comment stands because I made that comment when I realised he was a non-stereotypical gay man, but the guy is a fucking douchebag XD. Like really, he's a cunt.

So so so so sad at what happened to Poussey. I think a kind of dramatic moment like that was definitely on the cards, but her specifically being the one to die was a moment that definitely blind-sided me.

I thought the finale was excellent too, a surprisingly emotional ending.


My favourite season so far to be sure.
