I finished S3 of this the other week. Thought it was really poor compared to the previous two, especially the first. Nothing seemed to actually happen, each episode sort of meandered into nothing. S4 is out next year, yeah?
Rewatching S1 after three really throws into relief how different a show it's become. The first season is quite hard hitting and focuses far more on the mental implications of imprisonment. S3 is a feelgood romp about the wacky adventures of the Prison Gang Girls.
4 eps in and S4 is massively more entertaining than S3. I thought I was done with this show but after a good start I'm really looking forward to continuing watching. The story is actually progressing at a good pace this season and the humour is back on form. And the more serious stuff is being handled really well too.
I dunno, I remember thinking S3 was really boring but maybe I'm remembering it harshly?
Ecno wrote:What's the timeline on this thing? When it started I thought Chapman had 13 months. But Nikki says in S4 she's been clean for 3 years. As far as I remember she took drugs in like S1/2.
As of the close of season 4, I'd say it's almost a year since Chapman arrived. They mentioned it was Autumn in one of the last episodes of the season and surely her 1 year anniversary will be the focus of an episode so that hasn't happened yet. Also, I just read that season 5 will take place over the course of 3 days so her release isn't gonna happen anytime soon.
I finished S4 tonight. That was probably the best season so far, or at least on par with season 1.
Those last few episodes were full of feels. Lolly In season 3 I thought she was really annoying but she ended up as one of my favourites.
Poussey Damn, that was hard to watch, especially since she was in there for practically nothing. I loved her final flashback in NYC.
