IS NO ONE ON HERE WATCHING THIS SHOW!?

I just finished marathoning the new season and now I feel hollow inside.

I don't know how to stuff this void with feelings because I sure as hell can't stuff it with more episodes.



waiting for season 3

I AM I AM BF AND I BOTH LOVE IT

It's the show we've both overall liked the best of all of the shows we've watched together. We've just started the two first episodes of season 2 so I'm afraid I'll be staying away from this thread until we're done cus SPOILERSSS

But yes. Huge fans. We're both in love with Taystee & Poussey (that scene in season 1 had us both tear up) and we both crushed on Vicky Jeudy.

love <3

I watched the first season, but haven't started the second yet. My girlfriend hasn't seen any of it, so I'm going to have to start over anyway.

Also, should I avoid this thread for now or will we mark spoilers?

I just watched both seasons in 2 days. No regrets.

One of the best shows Ive seen, and really refreshing to have a full hour of content, instead of 40 min + adverts.

Love it! Amazing. But as I don't have internet and haven't seen Season 2, I will be avoiding this thread until further notice.

Will mark spoilers, I was just being a cryptic douche

nothing specific discussed, just some general season impressions and thoughts I am really curious to see everyone's thoughts on the degrees of which characters are redeemable after this season and why.

I found myself incredibly weepy this season. Almost every episode I felt something worth crying over. That probably has a lot to do with hormonal fluctuations, but the writers definitely upped the intensity since s1. Don't get me wrong - it remains hilarious - but there were certain scenes where I was simply wrecked.

Really excited to see the critical responses to this show. I definitely felt a lot more sympathy for the [sorta well-intentioned, but often still horrible] dude characters than I did last season. I think that is a really interesting juxtaposition to the "main villain" of the season, who is just so unquestionably horrible. I'm curious how people will respond to how the show depicts this character.

also actual spoiler THAT FINALE THO. THIS GIF WAS MY EXACT REACTION:



YOU FUCKING GO MISS ROSA. Just. Omg. That was so touching and inspirational I just couldn't deal. Usually I'm pretty resilient to cancer stories but god that one just snuck up from behind and kicked me in the ass. I never expected this character to be as important to the show as she ended up being.

I like that this season focuses more on the other girls, not just Piper. I love seeing their back stories.

So what's the pitch for reasons to watch this / what's it generally about?

Based on the little bits that I've seen (aside from tumblr orgasming all over itself about it), it's a prison drama of sorts(?) -- which generally holds absolutely zero interest to me (haven't had any urge to watch things like Breaking Bad either, because despite good performances I haven't got any general interest in the overall premise of the show itself).

It's a drama that leans toward comedy. The main character is sent to prison for drug smuggling when she was younger. You get to know each of the women as time goes on through flashbacks to what led them there. You also get to know the people who run the place

It's basically a fish out of water story.

It's well written. WATCH IT!

Ah, ok. Most drama shows & especially comedy drama really isn't my thing, so I'll probably opt out, but I'll probably end up running it by my roommate if he isn't already watching it, since that stuff's more his cup o' tea.

Thanks, Pixel!!

I would say it leans more towards comedy than drama. Yes it is dramatic and heart-wrenching but I feel like the reason the show has me is because it's better at making me laugh than cry (though I do the latter as well, but that's probably because I am slightly manic). In that sense it's about 10000% less grimdark than something like Breaking Bad, which I found far too OOT for me to really take seriously.

It's based off a real person's stint in prison. The author of the original memoir (Piper Kerman, who is Piper Chapman on the show) serves as a producer for the series. I say this because I think as silly as things can get, it's an example of a lot of the integrity the show has. It is pretty consistent in letting viewers get a feeling of how fucked up the prison industrial complex can be.

While not similar genre-wise at all, if I were to compare OITNB to anything, I would say I enjoy it for similar reasons I really like LOST. The structure of the story telling is virtually the same. The main plot features a cast of characters in an enclosed space (prison/the island) dealing with a situation beyond their control and the personal conflicts that arise from that. Each episode also has a spotlight character, and the audience gets to know more about what's going on in the prison based on the flashbacks that tell about that character's past. I can't really think of any other show that takes on this format other than LOST. I really enjoy it though c:

If you're not into comedy dramas then it probably isn't your thing. I would say it is really well written and makes for a good TV experience. There is a lot of good things to say about it and it's worth passing it along to someone who may like it c:

I'd say it has more in common to elements of Scrubs. Not the really broad humour. But the way it dips into characters lives, and isnt afraid to get sentimental, or tough to watch.

Id also compare it to Girls. Thats another show everyone should watch.

I'm on episode 5 of season 1 and loving this show so far, it's really well done. The whole crazy eyes thing is hilarious as well as disturbing, I think that's why I like this show so much. The emotional stuff is also funny.

Will probably post a lot more as the season progresses.
