I wouldn't call it "amazing," but I am seven episodes in and definitely enjoying it. They really won me over when they used The Velvet Underground's "Sunday Morning" in one episode. They also mentioned The Smiths in another episode, which made me happy.

Watching it the second time through with the wife. It's easier to appreciate all the humor when you are not caught up in the storyline.

I finished it last week. It starts off with a lot of humor but really has quite a serious side to it as well.

I think Laura Prepon or Natasha Lyonne are hotter than the protagonist.

I am quite fond of the flashbacks to their backstories of how they got there. My favorite is Miss Claudette by far.

Interesting this appears today. I was chatting with a co-worker last night and he mentioned he and the wife are into this show and it has resulted in a definite increase in marital relations.

Is an amazing new show on Netflix. Not sure if any of you have watched it, but it truly deserves two thumbs up!

Yes I am endorsing it.
Its kind of raw but I like it as well and give it a big thumbs up. Someone n the know about prison life must have contributed to the details and personalities.

I worked with the FBOP for many years. This show surely has an advisor that knows BOP policy. It is pretty close to real.

Just watched the first episode (I really liked the first few season of 'Weeds' then stopped watching), and I thought it was absolutely dreadful.

Just started 'House of Cards' - seems to have far more potential.

Both shows were absolutely awesome. Give Orange Is The New Black a couple episodes before you drop it.

Super pumped for the new season of House of Cards that comes out tonight

Yeah, House of Cards was compelling off the bat - hopefully it stays that way.

I only found one of the characters even mildly likable. It was kind of boring too imo - it felt like the first episode was 3 hours long for me.
I'm gonna finish up 'House of Cards' and then probably give it a second go. I was shocked I disliked it so much, and I only know a couple other people that wouldn't recommend it. My girlfriend disliked it too - that made me feel a little better. Maybe next week it will seem more interesting!

Watching episode 8 right now. So many plot lines... Fantastic.
Im waiting for the next season be out but it is excellent. A little raw for some perhaps. Some kinks love the lesbian scenes. I probably just added to the viewership with this observation.:rolling:
