And so it goes. After 13 episodes and one as-long-as-a-movie season finale, we find ourselves at the end of the second run of "Orange Is The New Black." With consistency in mind, I'm going to stick to episodes 11, 12 and 13 for this post, again reiterating the possibility that maybe sometime next week, we'll go all macro on this second season (stress the "reiterating the possibility" part). For now, though, let's dive into how the whole thing wrapped up with the following five things to think ... read more
This will be the second-to-last "Orange Is The New Black" Five Things post (I know: Have mercy). Because the season runs an odd number of episodes, we'll likely finish it up next week by going through episodes 11, 12 and 13. Then, depending on how life feels, we may come back for another installment of "And now it's time to talk about ...". But no promises (trust me: I am fully aware that half of the four of you still reading have already finished the season by now while the other half has simply ... read more
It was a banner week for "Orange Is The New Black," the series earning a bevy or barrage or a barrevy of Emmy nominations yesterday for their season one work. And gosh-darn-it, if Crazy Eyes doesn't end up walking away with a trophy of her own that night, I might ... I might ... well, I might do absolutely nothing about it (I mean, really: What on earth could I do, anyway?). But it would be disappointing, nonetheless. Obviously.
Anyway, behold five things about episodes seven and eight when ... read more
First thing's first: A new Netflix Pix will hit the World Wide Internet next week. For now, though (and because we already missed a week of this), we are going to continue forward with our "Orange Is The New Black" series a day before Friday. Why is that? Because who wants to read about the prison system when we are supposed to be out there celebrating freedom, gosh-darn-it! FREEEEEDOMMM!
Yeah, anyway. Behold five things about episodes five and six of this latest "Orange Is The New Black" ... read more
... And we're back. After a quick break last week, it's time to return to the lovely ladies at the state of New York's busiest women's prison. It was a steady climb toward greatness after the disappointment episode one provided and the improvement between the first two episodes was both real and abundant. That trend continues with installments three and four. So, enough of me gabbering. Let's go. Naturally, spoilers abound:

All right. So, here's the plan. One week ago today, the second season of "Orange Is The New Black" was released all at once. As we know by now, that's how Netflix rolls. Some of you (assuming anybody actually reads this thing, which is highly, highly unlikely) might have already stormed your way through the entire season. Others might be about half done. Then, of course, there could be those who simply haven't even had the chance to sit down and reacquaint themselves with the series at all. I ... read more
