The last time we saw the inmates of Litchfield Penitentiary they were reeling over the “accidental” death of Poussey Washington, one of the best and most versatile characters on the show. I put the word accidental in quotes because while her death wasn’t a purposeful act, it was easily preventable. Warden Caputo and Officer Piscatella had been escalating tensions all season, and the death of their beloved Poussey at the hands (or knee) of Piscatella was the last straw. Season four ended with the inmates revolting against the people in charge, and judging by the season five trailer above, it picks up right where four left off. Will the women of Litchfield finally come together as one and force change or will Poussey die in vain? I can’t wait to find out.
Season five starts streaming on June 9th.
In a little over a month, season 3 of Orange is the New Black will be on Netflix and all will be right with the world again. The greatest trick Netflix ever pulled was getting people addicted to binge watching TV shows, because now that they’ve created their own shows, there’s a buzz surrounding new seasons that is unmatched on basic or premium cable. As much as I love shows like ‘The Walking Dead’ and ‘Game of Thrones’, they’re a multi month commitment. You can go weeks (or months) between really great episodes, and sometimes waiting that long for a pay off gives you just enough cynicism to not appreciate it when it happens. But in the cases of shows like ‘House of Cards’, ‘Bloodlines’ and ‘Orange is the New Black’, if you’re insane enough, you can bang out a whole season in a weekend. OITNB is my favorite Netflix original because it blends comedy and drama so well. A show about a woman who lost it all and ended up in prison shouldn’t be funny, but the cast and writing is so great it’s impossible not to laugh at it sometimes. Season 3 premiers June 12th.
The ladies of Litchfield are back for a whole new season! I have been so excited for this since the moment I finished seasons one and two. Best thing about Netflix shows? I can watch them all at once. Binge time!
With Silvio “Sil” Dante making a cameo on this new Netflix commercial I can’t help but wonder when The Sopranos will be live streaming on Netflix. Ok ok, I know that Steven Van Zandt was on the commercial for his new show by Netflix called “Lilyhammer”, but a man can dream, and I will. I already have HBOGO so it doesn’t really affect me, but anything that makes my journey to New Jersey with Tony and the boys easier is something I want to be apart of.
