Brooks, Taryn Manning (Pennsatucky) and Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes) were all recently promoted to series regulars.

Well, spoiler alert.

I will never understand actors that decide to leave a successful show. I know she gets the big fat syndication money from That 70's Show, but isn't the idea of acting to, you know, act in movies, televisions shows and plays?
The wife and I love this show and we are really looking forward to next season, so I find this is a little disappointing.
Just as bad as Rashida Jones and Rob Lowe leaving Parks and Rec.

/plus she showed her boobies and that was awesome

Watched the first episode. Wasn't bad, but also wasn't great like everyone says. Trying to determine if I keep watching...

Pennsatucky is promoted to regular?

Well that escalated quickly.

Keep at it, it'll hook by the end of the second episode. Plus it's worth watching just to see the interpretation of Ira Glass and This American Life

The wife and I watched the first episode and found it to be without any redeeming qualities. We have no plans to watch anymore. There are enough interesting shows to watch that I don't have to waste my time waiting for it to get better.

I thought Prepon was one of the weak links of the show so I'm ok with her leaving. Hopefully that will leave more room for Crazy Eyes, Morello and Nichols.

They get it out of the way in the first 10 seconds of the first episode.

Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones are leaving because those characters stories are basically over - the creators have said as much. It's a nice change for a show to do that, rather than grind a character into the ground kespecially with a fun character like Chris Treager).

You should be a little more patient. The first few episodes are heavy on the "women in prison" tropes but the show quickly abandons that for some genuine character studies.

Imperious Rex!: She was the weakest actor on the show, I am ok with this.


She definitely was.  And her storyline with Piper is effectively over, unless they want to rehash the "WAHH YOU SENT ME TO PRISON" bit that they already covered.  The other characters are infinitely more interesting anyway.  Can't wait for them to delve a little deeper in Crazy Eyes' story.

Keep at it.  It's a slow burn and the supporting actors are absolutely phenomenal.  The first episode is the slowest but it gets to be great.  If you judge every show by its first episode, you'll miss out on some great TV.

Now I know why I hate Sam Healey the correction officer and social worker: on top of being a lonely anti-homosexual two face, he's the actor who was the horse farker in Deadwood.

And the last episode in Orange is the New Black was the best last episode I've seen in a long time. Pennsatucky is off her rocker.

skinink: Pennsatucky is off her rocker.


I'd say more so that Piper is given everything that has happened up to that climatic point. Think of it this way, who has more purpose in life and things to live for. Pennsatucky or Piper?

I know but I liked them both so much. Hopefully it'll leave more screen time for Ron, April, and Andy.

Can we get to the heart of the matter: Is she still a bottle blonde, or is she back to a smoking redhead?
 
2013-08-15 09:20:46 AM
Laura Prepon is not a good actress. I found her character only mildly believable, and mostly just irritating. Hopefully someone stabs her on the show rather than her character just disappearing.

/I must have slept through the episode where Healy turned from kindly to evil. Which one was that?

//really good show - highly recommend.

MadSkillz: /I must have slept through the episode where Healy turned from kindly to evil. Which one was that?


He was always evil, he just showed favor to Piper because he thought he could use her for his ends.

*SPOILER*

When Piper went over his head to the Assistant Warden for the marriage cert and effectively farked him over because of the phone call to Larry he turned his back on her and showed her his true self, the Healy he always ways really. And honestly she should have seen it coming after the shoe incident.

The show is good, but not great. I found it a little hammy, and it's hard to watch Janeway chewing up all the furniture she can find. 6/10, not much on during the summer, so it's probably worth a look.

Its been escalating. It started with the cell phone and her not telling him or helping him out. He also hates lesbians and his homelife sucks he's very miserable an taking it out on piper as he feels she betrayed him.

There's a rumor that this is why she is actually leaving the show, the church asked her not to resign because of it's stance on homosexuality.

No, but you do get to see a prisoner shaving her (Janeway's) legs.

Meh, that's fine.  Her storyline was boring.

I hate Pennsatucky, and not in a way I'm supposed to hate her, but in a real, "I don't want to watch this" way.  I wish they'd just kept her in the psych ward forever.

I absolutely love Crazy-eyes and hope they focus on her more.  You know she must have an amazing back story.

Watched it with my wife.  Literally punched my hand into my fist and went "YEAH" when Piper decided to go for it.  SOOOO satisfied at the conclusion of the season.  Wife was horrified.

Eh, it's based on a book chronicling one year in a women's prison. I have to imagine that if she really killed another inmate (and you know Healy would be first in line for that witch hunt) she wouldn't be getting out in a year. I thought it was a great way to end the season, but I never thought for a moment Pennsatucky would be killed.

It would have been way out of character for her to just straight-up murder Pennsatucky.  She was falling from innocence, but that would have been a very stark shift and some very poor character development.

I kept thinking Pennsatucky looked familiar and then realized that Taryn Manning (the actress) played "Cherry" in Sons of Anarchy. And I wasn't too fond of that character, either.

But I have to give her credit -- Pennsatucky is genuinely scary. Crazy Eyes comes off as off-her-meds kooky-but-harmless crazy, but Pennsatucky comes off as one of those people who might have wound up on the political scene had she not been tossed in prison first. Her backstory was also amazingly satisfying to make her into a great villain.

THIS. Maybe the PTB in her "religion" didn't like the lesbian part she was playing. Her acting is dull and wooden anyway.
