"Orange is the new black" (Netflix orig)

New show on Netflix, produced by Jenji Kohan (of weeds fame) about a woman in prison. Sounds interesting, and we were huge Weeds fans.

S1 in full on Netflix, just started E01. Anyone else watching?

I will stay around for a few more episodes.

But I am a sucker for women in prison movies

That's who that is! Wow.

I watched the first two episodes last night. I thought the first episode was a little heavy on the nudity/sex (I know not everyone here thinks that's a bad thing) - but the second episode settled down on that - and I'm really enjoying the series.

So - how do we discuss shows where the whole season is available? Can spoilers be in here? Or do we need a new thread for each episode?

I have a question about the basic plot...

I'm definitely going to watch. They picked it up for a second season. I LOVE this new way of doing business. I don't have to live in fear that my favorite show will be cancelled.

Can we assume this as a spoiler thread. I if Scott is OK with it then he could email a mod to change the title.

I am really enjoying it also. It seems very real somehow. I'm not super happy with the timeline switches but it was much more clear in Episode 2.

I don't know about spoilers... What if I've only seen episode 2, and someone has seen the whole thing and posts something about the last episode... If we all stay away until we've seen the whole season, then this thread is going to get quiet fast.

How was House of Cards handled? Did everyone just wait until they finished the season to start talking about it?

Even the popular Netflix series have failed to successfully handle single episode threads. But I agree it's kind of a mess. I don't have a solution but also hate not being able to refer to specifics.

Since this is not a weekly show I would consider this thread for the whole season. I also feel it should include spoilers.

How about using spoiler tags and say what episode it is, for example

Episode 3 spoiler
Spoiler:
The girl peeing on the floor at the end was awesome!

I saw this thread yesterday and thought, "I'll take a look."
I had to stay up for work the next day (tonight) anyway.
Watched 3 episodes last night and 3 more this morning. Really enjoying it so far.

Not sure of the exact charges, but she assaulted a wife of a Russian mobster. When her husband and she were told to make good on $60k in damages to the wife's implants, Red's husband eventually "made good" by allowing what looked like perhaps dead body parts to be stored in their walk-in freezer. I would have to assume that Red and her husband were eventually caught with the body.

I don't think we've seen why she's in prison, or the real time line. Flashbacks can be confusing.

Jodie Foster directed ep 3.

I have seen the first 3 episodes and have enjoyed it. Interesting that two members of the American Pie franchise made it into this. A little hooky in parts but I'm in.

It's odd that they didn't show her actual crime. They did all the others.

I feel like this is the missing three years of Weeds when Nancy was in jail.

In.

Can someone explain how "voluntary surrender" works? Did she skip bail and turn herself in? I don't quite get how that works. It seems like they were expecting her to show up.

I think when you are convicted of a "minor" crime you have a report date to show up. Paging Regbarc

They were very clear that they were NOT expecting her.

My impression was that guard on duty didn't realize they were expecting her, but eventually found the paperwork. And yes, typically someone guilty of a minor non-violent crime that is sentenced to one of the low security prisons, and is also not to be believed to be a threat to society other than their already committed crime is often given a date to surrender themselves into prison. I believe Martha Stewart is a good example of this.

I unfortunately haven't seen the show, so I am not sure of the context.

But how it generally works with surrendering can fall into a couple of different categories. You can surrender to police because they have an arrest warrant out for you for a crime. You can surrender to police or sheriffs because you fail to report to Court for a hearing date (skipping bail).

In the context of the show, it sounds like the person was sentenced to a prison sentence and given a date to surrender herself to custody. This is common in, for instance, weekend DUI sentences (where someone is ordered to serve three months in prison to be served on weekends only). It's also (more rarely) associated with people who get relatively lengthy sentences and are allowed to take care of affairs at home for a couple of weeks before reporting to prison (they surrender either there, or surrender in the Courtroom). The main character in 25th Hour (a great movie) is in that situation. Generally the person has to be not an immediate threat to himself or others, so it is more common for drug cases than those cases involving victims (but that is not how it works all the time).

I've had people fail to surrender and it is nothing short of an unmitigated disaster for them. They face having the original sentence rescinded or revoked and a new, much more lengthy sentence imposed. Sometimes in absentia.

I'll see what I can read about this episode to get a better context.

I assume that everyone has noticed that every time Piper is on the phone the lady on the other phone is the same crying person.

Yael Stone's (Morello) accent is so bizarre that it's a little off putting.
