Surprised there was no thread for this fantastic show. Watched the first episode yesterday. Loved every minute of it. The acting isn't fantastic but the story is extremely engaging. Of course the adult scenes and nudity help peak my interest for it. Still though, a great show regardless.

I loved the nod to American Pie in the pilot episode. It was something like..
"I tell you everything, the webcam horror, the penis shaving... everything"

I let out a little chuckle at that line.

Haven't watched it, it's in my instant queue, but still trying to get through Arrested Development instead. But the selling point was the "Creator of Weeds" cause I *bleep*ing love that show.

I would try this show out if only for Kate Mulgrew.

I watched the pilot twice. First on my own and then with my wife the next day. The first time I saw Kate I didn't recognise her as Janeway from Voyager. It was one of those 'I know her face from somewhere' moments. Then when I watched it a second time it just clicked and I instantly shouted 'Janeway!!!'. Honestly, she's completely different in this than in Voyager. Both in looks and in acting. Her character is brilliant.

Yeah she was/is also Flemeth in the Dragon Age series. She is a really good actor.

This show is definitely gold. The story is intriguing, the characters are interesting, and the whole thing is just great. I think it's the best show since breaking bad came out.

Yeah I'm really enjoying it. I'm not binge watching it though. Taking my time with it. Perhaps watching 1 episode every couple days or so.

Whatever happened to the image I put in the first post??

Keep hearing about this (nothing but good things) will definitely be watching it soon but seriously, couldn't they have picked a better title?

This is the last show I will be featuring because it is just that good. I've got about 5 to go and I just can't get enough. Funny shit, great cast and story structure. I never thought I could hate Nick Sobotka this much. No offense to any of the other Netflix shows (except for the ones that suck) but when I heard they were getting into original program this is the kind of ambitious originality I expected.

Fun fact, Piper (Kerman) is a real person and this is based on her book of the same name.

I really enjoyed this show, and I'm looking forward to the next season. I never would have seen it though were it not for Netflix forcing the trailer on me before and after watching things. Good on them I suppose; definitely worked on me.

Had been considering this show since the adverts started appearing everywhere, surprisingly really good. It also helps I'm a big fan of binge watching shows, so having them all there to watch straight away is perfect. Hopefully netflix keep on picking up shows like this, they'll do well.

The one who's friends with Taystee? Yeah I'm still convinced that's a guy too.

There was a Q&A with the whole cast on Twitter last week. Someone asked Biggs how many actors from American Pie are in OitNB. He said 7. He didn't elaborate though. I only recognise 2 from American Pie, Jim & Jessica. Anyone know who the other 5 are??

Deborah Rush (who played Piper's mother) was in the third movie. Apart from that, I can't find any other actors common to both.
