Netflix: Orange Is The New Black: Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Lolly had me in stitches this season... I think there were shades of crazy but they hadn't reached maximum level like they did after she and Alex did what they did.

Who would have ever thought I'd like Vause. Piper was deplorable and I'll touch on more of that after ya'll have seen the show because I'm not feeling spoiler tags.

Ive only seen the first 3-4 episodes. The first did nothing to me and just seemed like it was carry over from last year. It starts to pick up a bit after that. HATE that Polly or whatever her annoying ass name is is still around. Was she always bats--t crazy? She came across annoying and weird before but here she is just nuts like she should be in a mental institution instead


Keep watching, by episode 6 it's insane (in a good way). Also, give Lolly a chance. I felt the same way about her that you do, but by the end of the season my heart ached for her so much. Just wait for her backstory and your mind might change. Cannot wait to discuss the season with you once you've finished. 

End of the season? Ewww. That means the bitch is going to make it that long...ugh!

The lockdown episode was brilliant, from the threesome from hell to Coates reading It to Caputo asking his girlfriend if she's ever been in a prison, down to the last moments of Lolly crying and Healy crying. My God.

I just saw "The Animals". What a devastating ending. I love how nicely things built up to this.

Wow, I just finished watching and this is a strong contender for best season yet. It was REALLY good from beginning to end. Im glad Poussey didnt die in vain and that her death drove the storyline for the entire season. Shocked that the riot took place across the entire season, lasting maybe 3-4 days yet didnt get old and kept me entertained


Plus? Less emphasis on Piper and Alex. They werent as annoying now that they werent the leads.


Double Plus?  Sofia's absence. I think she had like 1 episode and then was quickly forgotten


Tasty was the breakout character. She really got a chance to shine

This season was absolutely the best season we've had.  I cried during that finale.  I can't wait to see what happens next.  Kudos to all involved.

Good point on Sophia though - where did she go/what happened to her?  Did I miss it?


There are so many open questions on what will happen with certain characters next season.  Ugh, why do they wait a full year before releasing new seasons?? haha.

    • I guess a bright red coat is sort of recognizable (assuming it's that one you meant, I haven't watched the show in a while).

    • (I heard this on someones podcast so if im wrong, Sorry!!!.) They said GHs Hulu Numbers are like 3X that of the neilson numbers, Jamey Giddens Also said Semi Recently that All the soaps do well on their networks platforms, So i think they will do okay. What about if a daytime soap makes a transition to prometime, So lets say next year Pine Valley gets the greenlight, Do you think that will do okay in primetime or be a flop.
    • In the event that a soap does get canceled today, I wonder what future it'll have on streaming. When Passions went to DirecTV they said it was a big success, but of course canceled it once they got their subscribers, then they moved onto primetime shows. AMC and OLTL were successful on Hulu and OWN, but were ahead of the curve when it came to streaming. Say DAYS does leave NBC, I wonder if they'd consider moving it to streaming. You can't convince me it wouldn't be a big hit. It probably could be what Peacock needs to be saved since DAYS fans would have to flock to it to keep watching.
    • Most networks were thinking about getting out of soaps at that time and Passion was the first that went, then Guiding Light and As The World Turns, then of course One Life To Live and All My Children. The truth is that General Hospital was next to go if they hadn't seen that the replacements weren't doing well (I think NBC ultimately ended up giving up Passions time slot to affliaties, but I might be wrong) and that's what's so far kept the remaining soaps on air. They know if they lift them off at this point they'll not only get replacements doing worse, but also likely affect the rest of the remaining daytime line up negatively. I assume they've figured the remaining soaps DO have a unique audience that won't tune in unless there's a soap on air.
