I love to watch t.v.  I do.  I admit it.  I find it relaxing to escape real life just for those brief minutes and watch the fictional experiences of others.  Frank and I especially love to watch shows together once the kids have gone to bed.  We’ve enjoyed “Breaking Bad,” “True Blood,” “The Walking Dead” and now, “Orange is the New Black.”  I remember asking my friends and family on Facebook what shows they loved to watch and “Orange is the New Black” was listed by several people.

I had started to watch the show on Netflix but was feeling a bit uncomfortable with the first episode as I really had no idea what to expect.  I took a break for a few weeks and then tried it again.  Honestly, the first episode was definitely a little racy, but once I was into the second episode, I was hooked.  I loved the story line and the quirky characters (aka Red and Crazy Eyes) and just loved following along with Piper and her prison experiences.

“Orange is the New Black” has won a dozen Emmy Award nominations for this acclaimed comedy drama series, including Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing and Outstanding Lead Actress for star Taylor Schilling.  A crime she committed in her youthful past sends Piper Chapman (Schilling) to a women’s prison, where she trades her comfortable New York life for one of unexpected camaraderie and conflict in an eccentric group of fellow inmates.

Have you seen “Orange is the New Black?”  
Who is your favorite character (other than Piper of course)?

    This is such a great show, isn’t it!? We are about to wrap up season 1 and I can’t wait to see what season 2 has in store for us!

  21. I swear I’m the only person on earth who hasn’t seen this show. ALL of my friends watch it. Must get Netflix!

  22. I will admit that I like this show, I am bummed that from reports they will not be doing a season 3 and I am so sad. I have to say I love the boyfriend, actor Jason B.

    My oldest son and his wife have Netflix and they LOVE it!!

  25. Laura says:

    I love Netflix. I am actually watching Hemlock Grove on their right now. Its a bit weird, but fun. I tried OITNB, but I stopped. It was a little too much for me.

  26. My husband has been watching this show, I think he’s finally all caught up. I haven’t yet really tried it, thought I’ve caught snippets while he’s watching and it definitely looks intriguing!

  27. vickie couturier says:

    I have not seen it but heard that it was good,from other reviews

  28. Morelli is my favorite…even when she goes a little cuckoo in the bathtub. She has such character!

  29. I have been watching this show since it came out. I couldn’t wait for Season 2 and the minute it was released the husband and I binged watched every episode. I have a lot of favorite characters because it’s so hard to pick one. But, right now I would have to say its a tie between Red and Tasty at the moment.

  30. Christie says:

    I need to start watching this show. I’ve heard so many good things

  31. YES YES YES! It is awesome! My hubby and I binge watched it until we ran out of new episodes.

  32. Lori says:

    I love netflix. I will have to tune in to this show. I hear it is REALLY good.

  33. Tonia says:

    It seems as though this show snuck in and captured the attention of a lot of people. I saw the first episode, but that’s it. It’s nice that Netflix is developing their own shows for their network.

  34. Lisa says:

    It really is a great show for so many reasons! Meeting Piper in person was great too!

  35. Dawn says:

    I agree! My daughter and I practically watched the whole second season within a week! We are addicted, we love it!

  36. Toni says:

    We love Netflix. I love OITNB too, I hate that I have to wait so long between seasons LOL

  37. Amanda says:

    Hubby and I LOVE this show. It’s so good and we are addicted!

  38. Everyone is addicted to this show right now. Not really my cup of tea, but looks awesome!

  39. I love Orange is the New Black! No season 3? NOOOO!!!!

  40. I need to catch up on Orange is the New Black. I watched the first episode and just never found time to go back.

  41. Cynthia R says:

    We watch this as well, but haven’t finished the second season, the second season seems to be a little slower than the first, on netflix we love house of cards, breaking bad, walking dead, longmire, and hell on wheels.

  42. Us too! We’ve heard of it for a while now but never looked into it. We just started watching it and trying to catch up. I like it but I think it glamorizes prison, which I don’t think is such a good idea.

  43. Emily says:

    I really should start watching this again! I only gave it a few episodes.

  44. I’m obsessed with this show and totally binge watch! We are on Season two episode 3- the summer got all hectic, but now I can’t wait to finish it. Praying for a rainy day…

  45. Brandy says:

    I have thought about watching this, but just haven’t. I should probably put it on and see what the hype is about because so many seem to LOVE this show!
