This is already out?

Anyone else drowning in shows lately? Netflix is doing their part with Bloodline, House of Cards, Kimmy Schmidt, Flaked and now Orange/Black. Odd they don't spread it out more.

And now Orphan Black starts tomorrow and stuff like Better Call Saul and Fargo aren't done yet... and just before this I binged through S3 of Bosch.

Golden age of television.

I think I'm done with this show. I'll check back in this thread to see if it's worthwhile. Just haven't been enjoying it the last couple seasons.

I don't follow a lot of television, but has there ever been a tv-series where one whole season takes place over the course of one day? I'm only on episode 4, but this has been very surprising.

Four episodes in and loving it ... glad I watched the recap beforehand -- some of my memories of last season were muddled. For some reason I thought Brooke ODed (dead) but t forgot about Poussey.

Super happy that there has been very little Piper so far.

How I Met Your Mother's last season took place over a weekend. I haven't finished this season yet, but the episode description make it sound like it all happens over a 3 day period.

I'm still liking the show but they did go to far down the crazy lane. The show was better with some stories based in reality.

I'm probably 1/2 way through and liking it a lot. However, it seems that it will be hard to do future seasons due to what's been going on. Most of the inmate cast has done stuff that would defiantly get them sent to a higher security prison.

I blew through that season. Overall, I was happy with it. The cliffhanger was a bit infuriating though.

I didn't really see it as a cliffhanger.

Spoiler:
It seemed more of they ended the episode a minute or two early. It's not like they'll gun them down or drop a bomb in there. SWAT team enters the room and sees them standing arm-in-arm and leads them out.

Now if the end was "FADE TO BLACK. Gunfire goes off with screaming" then it would be more of a cliffhanger. At least to me.


I could be wrong though.

I guess I think the fate of those characters is more up in the air. I don't put it past those guys to come in shooting.

Well with what had just happened up in the hallway, the SWAT guys would probably be overly cautious and less likely to shoot.

I am wondering where they are being sent. Wish the writers luck in somehow getting the characters back together for next season. Especially the characters who openly mistreated the hostages or waved the gun around.

How many seasons has it been renewed for?

I saw the last 2 eps of S4. My god were those masterful. That last shot of Poussey was such a great sendoff to a beloved character. So poetic. Into first ep of S5. Like they start exactly where left off. Directed by Andrew McCarthy too. Think he did other eps though.

Re: Orange is the New Black (Netflix) -- Season 5 Discussion Thread -- premieres 6/9/

This season sucks arse. After 4-5 episodes, I almost gave up. Thankfully, I only have one episode left. This "riot" should have lasted a few episodes max. The amount of boring/annoying filler is through the roof, there seems to be constant yelling and screaming, and each "character pair" (Flaritza, the meth heads, Piper and Vause, the two dopes guarding the hostages, Red and the eyebrows chick, etc..) just end up being over-the-top ridiculous. The only characters I still cared about were Caputo, who you don't see much, the survivalist chick, ditto, and a couple others. There was no point whatsoever in that MMC/Caputo girlfriend being in there. This show has gone the way of Weeds after 4-5 seasons. Meh...

To me, since they're all together, either they all make it out or none of them.

I finished up the season last night, and had the same reaction. I can't remember being that pissed about a cliffhanger before. GIVE ME SOME DAMN CLOSURE!!!

Didn't even season finale end with a cliffhanger? Not sure why anyone's surprised at that happening again.

I enjoyed the season, but didn't expect the riot to take it up entirely.

Didn't like how they treated some of the situations with the captive guards. They were essentially sexually assaulted. Seems hypocritical that they passed it off as comedic just because it happened to men.

I honestly didn't have a lot of sympathy for the prisoners. With the exception of a couple of guards and what they did - the women were there because they're criminals. They shouldn't feel entitled to most of their demands.
