Join in on the Orange is the New Black general show discussion.
I am loving OITNB so much at the moment, and I'm always looking for new shows to watch. Weeds has been brought up by several people on threads talking about the show (obviously because the share the same creator), so I'm wondering if it's worth me giving it a go next?
I finally got to start this series, and I was blown away by the first episode. Way better than Hemlock Gross--er, Grove, nowhere near as rambling and inconsistent as Arrested Development. Lilyhammer who?
The cast is incredible. I got chills when Kate Mulgrew sat down at the cafeteria table. Laura Prepon is brilliant. Jason Biggs is bringing game I don't think anyone knew he had.
Any other latecomers to the party? What do you think?
I just finished all the episodes and I have to say, this show is brilliant. I wasn't all that crazy about the finale, but I am super excited about the possibilities of the stories it creates for the second season. I love Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany and I think she is the greatest actress alive, but Taylor Shilling (Piper) is definitely up there on my list. Tim said it the best "Also never getting old, Piper's flinching. That woman can flinch like a pro!" Everything she does makes me laugh, worry for her life, hope she gets shanked, then I feel bad for her, and then I laugh again.
I love Netflix for giving me all the episodes at once, but now instead of waiting week to week to get my fix, I have to wait an entire year to get my fix.
The story of Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), a woman in her thirties who is sentenced to 15 months in prison after she is convicted of a decade old crime of transporting money for her drug dealing girlfriend (Laura Prepon).
