Premiered on Netflix today.
Anyone else started watching it?
I jsut started watching with the bf. Seems good so far.
The trailer is fabulous. Can't wait to watch this.
I just watched the first 3 episodes and really like it.
The fourth episode was fantastic. Best yet.
I was reading this small article in The Guardian and I thought I'd post it in the 'Wentworth' or 'Prisoner Cell Block H' threads and then I saw this thread and thought well here's a good a place as anywhere to post it!
I love a good Prison Drama and will check this series out.
Really loving it so far.
I'm binge-watching and at ep 7 now.
Thank god Netflix recovered from the horrible Hemlock Grove and the ok-but-lackluster Arrested Development.
This new way of releasing shows is really working out for me.
MORE OF THAT PLEASE.
It starts to drag around episodes 9/10. Some silly plotlines are introduced.
Finished the season! Cliffhanger...
So much love.
Taryn Manning better be back for season 2.
Her and Natascha Lyonne are my faves.
Well them two and Taystee and Crazy Eyes.
The ending was fantastic. Piper finally pushed to her limit!
The season did really well in crafting a huge number of identifiable minor characters. Taystee and Sophia are amazing.
What an amazing show!! I cannot wait for season 2! How does Netflix do it? July next year like TV, or just whenever it's finished?
This is proper brilliant.
Absolutely amazing, cannot wait for the second season!
I don't know the other character but when I saw Piper my first thought was "Katy Perry got a breast reduction?!?!"
I'm on episode 5 now and I absolutely love this. Obsessed.
I just got caught up on this and it's one of my favorite TV shows ever. Every episode - except maybe 1, 2 and 5 - were perfect. I like that as Piper got increasingly horrible as a person her life fell apart. And that ending!!!!! I actually thought for a moment Piper was going to not stop punching until Teeth was dead. I think we're going to see a new Piper, a more ruthless, less afraid Piper, next season because she has nothing left to lose: No Alex & no friends on the inside, no Larry on the outside. And Healy is a fucking monster, I hope he gets whats coming to him.
Gloria can fuck off thinking she can starve Queen Red out; although there is a very nice tables turned feeling considering how much of a cow Red was before we knew her backstory. Every character in this show has layers on layers on layers, Tastyee & Co were my favorite minor characters. Claudette is literally my hero. And I love that Alex & Larry were just as horrible as Piper so you couldn't really side with one over other because they were all making horrible decisions. Pornstache needs a more permanent comeuppance for what the way he treated Trisha & Red. I even grew to love Suzanne (I'm so sorry for calling you Crazy Eyes) and it broke my cold black heart when she heard what Piper had told Larry on the radio. The way they handled Sophia's story line made me so proud to be a viewer. That's dramatic but it's true, I've never seen the transgender community treated with the respect and love that they were treated with on this show; and I like they left in a healthy dose of reality too, what life would be like for a real trans. It's not always roses and sunshine. I loved how the characters interacted with each other, and how real it was. There were no grand speeches, no grand declarations, the dialogue & acting etc was exactly how people are in the real world.
I can't wait for next season. I love that back in Episode 5 they were talking about Piper not getting pulled into the fishbowl and over the next 8 episodes sank her further and further into it. Nicky & Alex need to get together. But I also love Nicky & the girl who drives the bus. I can't wait to see where Piper goes from here. It's amazing how far they've brought her & how much she's changed & how my opinion of her has changed in just a 13 episode season. Hurry back, OITNB!! I need you in my life FOREVER.
I'm glad to see so many people here that love this show! I'm on episode 7 right now and to my surprise, it's improving with every episode! The first two episodes aren't very good because Piper is such a boring character, but over the season she's getting a lot better. The supporting characters in this are E V E R Y T H I N G.
I am obsessed with this show. I'm nearly finished, and it hasn't even been two days.
Just finished it, it's pretty damn good! The end left me wanting so much more. I can't wait til 2014, I need it now!
I don't know how I'm gonna wait for the second season. I finished it last night and already miss it.
