    I think my favorite scene in the entire series is when Crazy Eyes tells Piper that she's not a nice person. I think she said something like "I thought you were a yellow dandelion, but now I know you're just a stem with the puff all blown off it" (totes paraphrasing there!). 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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    Just finished it and I agree! So many good lines and characters - I don't know who was my favorite. Funny, smart, thrilling. Can't wait for season 2.

    She reminds me of Yvonne Strahovski who played Hannah McKay in Dexter. Of course, the orange suit definately helped

    ^ I see a blonde Dianne Farr.

    I just finished the show tonight, and holy shit. There really wasn't a disappointing episode in the series. The only prisoner I truly dislike is Pennsatucky. There is nothing redeeming about her.

    Do others find the relationship between Bennett and Daya creepy? I know it's presented otherwise, and a lot of people seem to love it (or at least Bennett's character) because he's "sweet", but I think it'd be even worse if not for Pornstache. Anyone seems like a good guy next to him. Bennett with Daya feels like a college professor with a freshman student. And I know that she flirted with him first, but he's still in the position of power.

    I found it a little untoward, yes. Of course, they were two characters I cared very little about, especially him, and their relationship is mostly uninteresting. I'm not invested in their storyline.

    That could be part of it as well. I just don't really care about them.

    The Daya/Bennett relationship is a fucked up power dynamic for sure. I don't hate Bennett, as I think he's mostly a guy who got a rough break and is trying to get his shit together, but he was REALLY irresponsible to have unprotected sex with an inmate. I mean, fucking hell, even Pornstache uses condoms (god, that scene made me nauseous).

    I watched this whole series in three days. I love this show so much. My only disappointment is that they were doing a fairly good job of introducing the back stories for the other women, and then suddenly that stopped three or four episodes from the end. I'd like to see more of that.

    I cried when Yoga Jones told the story about how she ended up in prison. There've been a few emotional moments (like Taystee's story of why she couldn't make it in the outside world), but Yoga Jones really got me. Miss Claudette, too! I hope we haven't seen the last of her.

    Ryan, I'm so glad you watched! The whole series I was waiting to hear Yoga Jones' backstory. I totally cried too. Also, did you realize that Yoga Jones is Patty Mayonnaise?!
