    OK. Finished season One last night... can anyone here help me deal with the emotions from the last 2 episodes? and specifically the last 10 minutes?
    Considering this is a Jenji Kohan show, I was expecting something big to happen at the end, but, some things that were difficult....




    OK. Phew. Good to talk all that out. Thanks Mr. Healy. (actually...

    I just finished too. I hope we don't have to wait long for season two!

    OITNB is one of the best shows I've seen in a while - I think the writing is amazing. It's so refreshing to see a cast of women portrayed like real women in what I would think is a very accurate representation of a real life situation. I love how we are able to follow the stories of other characters besides the leads and not be bored or put off by "filler." Every story matters. Every character makes you care. I laugh, I cry, I'm on the edge of my seat. Ugh. This show is too much. LOVE IT.

    I believe I'm on episode 7. Watched them in one day, it's a fantastic show.

    I LOVE this show so much. The trailer didn't interest me, but a friend whose taste in TV shows matches mine urged me to watch it. I knocked out 6 episodes in two nights, which is a lot for me since I cannot usually watch more than an hour of TV a night. I'm still not keen on Piper, but I like her a bit more with each episode. I'm glad they give back story on the other women and it's not all about Piper. As awful as Pornstache is, I can only see Nick from The Wire when I look at him, so I can't completely hate him. I do hate myself for not having more self control and being able to ration the episodes, but hell. I haven't liked a new show this much in several years.

    I'm taking my time, just one episode a day, no more. Yet. Kate Mulgrew is fabulous.

    So far I've watched the first 9 episodes just this weekend on the strength of the comments in this thread. I love Red and Miss Claudette.

    By the end (I finished last night) Crazy Eyes was definitely one of my favorites too. And Taystee.

    I totally relate to Piper, but at the same time I realize she is a terrible person in a lot of ways. A lot less likable and "good" than many of the people in the prison who've done "worse" things. As an aside, the actress is a dead ringer for Emily Haines, and I can't get that out of my head whenever I'm watching her.

It's really true - we all think we are Nice Persons until someone spills all the nasty shit we say about people in public. It was a moment that rang so true for me. I also loved Piper's speech to the girl in the wheelchair about how you can't escape the truth in prison.

    ETA: Also, Crazy Eyes doing Shakespeare during Scared Straight! I was dying.

    The more I think about it, the more I think Crazy Eyes is my favorite character.
    That entire scene was killer! Especially her last remark: "You've gotta clean from the center out, otherwise you just get trapped by it." (Paraphrased as well), but damn a nice metaphor!
