I came here to post that in episode 8 phone lady was gone and right as the thread opened she was back.

EP8 Comment
Spoiler:
The Michael Jackson dancing was really funny


Piper at times looks like a typical WASP, at times like a young girl, sometimes hot, sometimes not. It's pretty well done overall.

Laura Prepon looks way older than she really is to me. Probably those harsh eyelashes.

Since Netflix has flexibility I wonder why the make 13 episodes series that are 45-60 minute each.

Oh and I really like the theme song.

It is a thick New York accent. Been around for a long time. Listen to Marisa Tomei in "My Cousin Vinny", for example.

I thought that's what it was but being a Brit wasn't willing to commit

I like the theme song, but when watching several episodes at once, I don't like watching the opening every time.

I think I'm up to episode 10 or so??? And after episode 8, I think I figured out how I feel about Healy

I'm at 9 but regarding Healy.

Spoiler:
I don't think your earlier analysis was correct, I think he was a good guy but something happened regarding the Newspaper story or his wife that changed his outlook

I agree. There was an obvious 180 in his actions and attitude, expecially toward Piper, but I never felt like the reason was really fleshed out.

For clarity, more Episode 9 Healy comments.

Spoiler:
I always thought it was something in the Newspaper article. I suspect we will find out.

It was so hot here in NYC we stayed indoors and did a 2-day marathon this weekend. Looking forward to season two.

Spoiler:
The ending is such a cliff hanger that Netflix had to.

Can people please give some indication what their spoiler is about, which episode seems to be the most useful. I don't want to open one's for stuff I haven't seen yet.

Finished the season, ending spoiler below:

Spoiler:
I really liked this show, the characters were great. I knew Tastee would be back, and it's heartbreaking to hear her explanation on why it's basically better for her on the inside. The ending was great, Healy has gone from likable to a monster so quickly, and now so has Piper. I can't wait for the next season.

I found that there were a few story lines that were also in Oz.

It's slightly less depressing than Oz though.

I haven't started yet, but I'm really looking forward to this one. I enjoyed reading this thread and even peeked at all the spoilers except GTuck's ending spoiler. I like reading the impressions and thought points before watching.

BTW, has anybody heard - they picked it up for a second season. j/k

It really is a great show, I think the fact that it got less buzz and isn't trying to be bigger than it is really helps. I don't feel the need to watch 5 episodes a day but I look forward to watching one or two.

Having never been in a men's or women's prison it seems more realistic to me.

I don't remember the episode, but probably mid-way through - and it's a minor spoiler

Spoiler:
Did they ever say why/how Boo got the dog?

No, but it's common for prisoners to train seeing eye dogs
