    I skipped most of this thread. I've seen only the first episode so far and it was decent. I'll need to find time to watch the rest as the new fall season has kicked into high gear so that means squeezing it in somewhere between returning/new shows.

    Ha. It's not fair in the sense that it was the biggest cliffhanger ever. Basically, just me whining. I adore this show and I wanted it to keep going and going and going...

    Can't wait for the second season next year.

    It comes back June 6. After you finish season two of House of Cards it recommends Orange is the New Black and announces the season two date.

    Just binge-watched this series. I love it. Like a funnier, gentler and more poignant female 'Oz.' NetFlix is quickly becoming a new AMC or HBO.

This is such a great show (in case you didnt jnow, it by the same people who did weeds, another good show!) , I rarely rewatch shows but this one I definately need to before s2 starts. Will probably end up binge watching it, again like I did last time. The have to wait another year...:(

    I'm at the 11th episode and this season I'm loving it even more than the first season.

    I thought season 2 was even better than season 1 also. They did a really good job with creating a villain and giving interesting things to do for damn near every main character.

    The problem though was the same as season 1: Piper. Besides the fact that she's annoying, whiny, and unbelivably selfish; this season it was even worse when some characters are dealing with relapsing into drugs, worrying about dying/getting killed, or literally fighting against a character who was a complete force of evil...she was still dealing with love triangle crap and other boring things.

    Unfortunetly in season 3 [BLACKOUT]Alex[/BLACKOUT] will be back full time which will probably make Piper's story even worse.

    It wasnt as funny as season 1. But the more mature and interesting story telling, delving deeper into characters, a great villain, and Piper not being a big of a focus made S2 a lot better

    Agreed. That ending made me happy too. Those of you who've already finished season 2 know what im talking about lol

    Yeah, I don't think they did a good job at making Piper's story interesting. Not to mention she doesn't have much interaction with the other inmates this season and the poster she has her taping up for this season, but she doesn't get into anything close to a fight this season. They did do a good job at continuing her development (or for lack of a better word, downfall) which could make things interesting.

    But the good news is that Piper felt more like a supporting character and didn't play as huge a role after the first episode.

    yeah I was sure after [BLACKOUT]Red[/BLACKOUT] got beaten in the penultimate episode that Piper would "knuckle up" for her friend. But she didnt do sh**.

    Someone could edit this season and not include Piper and I think the show would barely miss a step

    To be fair, she did do one thing important. It was her actions that led to Fig getting fired as prison adminstrator and getting Caputo promoted, but yeah, I'm glad Piper was only a supporting character this season.

    Just finished S2 and it was G.R.E.A.T.! I liked it much more than S1.

    Vee was a great villain and as much as I despised her, I kind of want her to make a come back if possible.

    This is a good example of giving your main character plenty of screen time but not having everything revolve around her.

    Next season is not going to be a pretty site, that place is going to be on lock down like it has never been before. Sucks since Caputo wouldve changed that place around.

    This season was excellent! Its amazing how the show can balance so many characters never under developing anyone. The ending was perfect.
