That's encouraging to hear, but I also don't care about half the back stories.

You'd be surprised. Their back stories are pretty interesting. Shows how they became like they are and how they ended up in prison. You know. Like a what's it called? A back story!

You're right. At this for this episode when it showed the military back story of Bennett

This season is better than last season. Private prison stuff is pretty interesting. Chang's backstory was interesting and Norma's, and I didn't care about those characters at all in other seasons.

Those are pretty much my two favorite characters and I haven't even seen the episodes about them yet. I laugh every time Chang is on the screen and Norma is just so nice!

I love Chang and Norma! So excited to see their stories and that they're getting more attention this season.

Just found out that the short white haired lady wasnt sent to kill Alex and that she is actually just batshit cray cray.

There is also no way this secret pantie ring doesn't blow up in their faces.

Caputo's back story was really sad. He just wants to be the good guy but it always leave him in a worse position.

We watched 3 episodes last night to finish the season; can't remember the last time we watched 3 hour long episodes of anything in a row... maybe we never have binged that hard?

This season was way better than last year. Pantie gang was good, but Piper becoming a hardass is pretty dumb and I don't buy that her character would change that quickly.

I enjoyed the back stories we got on most of the characters.

Who is everyone's favorite character? Jocelyn and I like Pussay. I like Caputo and most of the guards. Tasty is also a good person, whereas most inmates can be terrible people at times.

My favorite character went to max. :( the Norma shit was weird as fuck to me. Super weird but I sort of like how the portrayed the rape girl. Can't remember her name. She's always been one of my favorites. She's funny.

Glad I was right about back stories lol.

Also last episode was hour and half I think. So you binged harder than you thought.

Yeah, we noticed after we started it that it was longer.

I was hoping for a follow up with Nicky after she went to max. I always liked her too.

'Pennsatucky' Doggett and Big Boo are maybe my favorite unlikely combo. Pennstatucky went from being the villain in season 1 to being a victim in season 3. I really liked her character arc.

I was surprised Bennett didn't show up in the last episode. I thought he would have a change of heart or something.

Haven't watched the whole season but I've always like Caputo. He tries so hard for the inmates but it never goes his way.

Chang is definitely my favorite non-main character.

The C plot of the cooking lady almost going to their prison is 100% based on Martha Stewart almost going to the the prison when the real Piper was there. Other than that, none of this has to be based on Piper's real story anymore.

Season 4 dropped. I will only watch if Jocelyn wants to, last 2 seasons weren't very good. I did see this headline though

Orange Is the New Black season 4 is deeply upsetting. It's also the best season to date.

We watched the first episode last night. I wasn't as excited about it as Erin was, but it ended up being alright. I actually really dislike Piper now because she's such a d-bag.

Haven't even seen Season 3. I really hoped this show would just stop existing.

Oh yeah, they ruined her character.
I think season 1 of this show was really good
season 2 was actually bad
season 3 had some nice moments, but not enough to make me care about watching season 4.

Season 4 is my favorite so far. I'm 5 episodes in.
