[quote]From the creator of “Weeds” comes a heartbreaking and hilarious new series set in a women’s prison. Piper Chapman’s wild past comes back to haunt her, resulting in her arrest and detention in a federal penitentiary. To pay her debt to society, Piper trades her comfortable New York life for an orange prison jumpsuit and finds unexpected conflict and camaraderie amidst an eccentric group of inmates.

After the first episode I was pissed and hating Piper. I wasn't going to keep watching because she's another Nancy Botwin, Penelope Pitstop-type character (but this one is a blonde WASP) who is selfish and does whatever she wants with little regard for the messes that she leaves behind. But by the second episode I was all in because of the supporting characters. As each inmate's backstory was revealed, I wanted to learn more about them. I wasn't happy about the way the final episode ended, but I'm ready for season 2.

If you have Netflix, I give this one 4 stars, and say watch it. Jenji Kohan does it again.

So far, I've liked all the Netflix original series: House of Cards, Hemlock Grove

Finally watched it. Piper is my least favorite character and is even more annoying than in the book. I ended up fast forwarding through her scenes. I want to ask the creator why her characters always end up so unlikable.

I think she does it on purpose. The person everyone love to hate gets talked about more.

Ready for season 2!

I loved the finale for season 1! Pusstuckey ? the meth head...I was so happy to see Piper beat the hell outta her!

But I agree...I didn't like Piper initially because she was acting like she had been victimized and tricked into running those drugs, but I've come to like her as she realizes that everyone in prison with her are not the "bad" people she always thought they were....I love the back story development on each character.

[color=darkred]Piper grew on me. What's funny about this show is that its hard to root against anybody...even ones who are opposed to each other, because everybody's got understandable reasons for their wretchedness (or is that ratchetness?).[/color]

I disagree...I did not like Pennsatucky from the jump and disliked her even more when they gave her back story...I mean how you gonna holla about being disrespected at the abortion clinic when you've used them as your personal method of birth control for the last 6 times you've been pregnant. Question Pissed me off that she went in there, shot and killed the nurse, and the RTL advocates branded her as their spokesperson. Rolling Eyes
