    FYI. here's the real Piper with the fake Piper. The Rolling Stone review kind of echoed my feelings. The supporting characters were a lot more interesting than her though that's the nature of a show like this

    I also feel that it's such a shame this is not getting that much buzz, many people will not watch it because they simply haven't heard of it or ignored it.

    I really liked this monologue from Piper. I'm putting it in spoiler tags to appease the spoiler nazis, but really, it's not a spoiler.

    Passive aggressive much ? Of course that's a spoiler, it's a dramatic quote from the show and if you haven't seen it yet then it spoils it.

    In the grand scheme of possible spoilers, it's really not a spoiler. It doesn't reveal any plot or theme or event in the show.

    Hank, it's a spoiler...

    It speaks to the motivations of the main character, and why she can't go along with one of the other character's wishes.

    But there's no indication of any plot or reveal of anyone's actions or events. And even if it were, it's an extremely minor point. Sheesh, you people must be real fun at parties. :rolleyes:

    I just found out that OitNB is based on the real life experiences of Piper Kerman

    I wonder how many of the characters in the show mirror her real life prison-mates?

    I guess I'd have to read her book.

    A review of the book from 2010 is in Slate. The reviewer isn't kind to the the real Piper mostly for not being regretful over what happened to her.

    You just found out ? What about the picture of the real one above :)

    Regarding spoilers, how come it's our fault that you don't want to put the spoilers in tags ? (even though you did so you must really understand).

    I really enjoyed this season. I consider it one of the best dramas I've seen in a while. I'm only sorry I binged watched it. It's going to be a long wait until season 2.

    Possibly. If so, I missed it. I don't think she has been since then.

    I think they must have had some sort of implicit agreement like that, but Larry is so needy for attention and "success" (i.e. "Nachus") when he was put on the spot on the radio show, he *really* wanted to make a name for himself, so he told all these "disconnected" stories (in the sense that they were just stories to him, not real people). So yeah, he was a dick about it, but he had a lot of pressure on him to disclose at least some of them on the radio without really thinking about the consequences.
