TV Review – Orange Is the New Black Season 4

30 June 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kirsty Capes reviews Orange Is the New Black season 4…

Where to even begin with season 4 of Orange Is the New Black?

The credits rolled on that final episode, LP’s uplifting track Muddy Waters permeating the visual of Samira Wiley’s character Poussey Washington looking over the Hudson River, turning to the camera and breaking the fourth wall with a knowing smile. Orange Is the New Black has been the most uplifting, heart wrenching, thought-provoking, politically challenging show on or off television in at least the past five years. Season 4 has cemented it as a contemporary classic and a trailblazer in what the future of made-for-online shows might look like, ones which have the means and the power to question the status quo, to challenge the pre-existing perceptions of the viewer, and to pave new frontiers in writing and contextual commentary on our current socio-political climate.

You may think I’m being hyperbolic. »

‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 4: Matthew Weiner Talks Directing Episode 12 ‘The Animals’

27 June 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

[Spoiler alert: The following interview discusses the entire fourth season of Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black.” Do not read unless you’ve watched.]

The last time Matthew Weiner directed an episode of television was the series finale of his beloved creation, “Mad Men.” So it’s only fitting that his follow-up gig makes just as much noise, and the twelfth episode of “Orange Is the New Black” Season 4 has certainly caused a stir.

The episode, titled “The Animals,” closes with the death of fan favorite character Poussey Washington (Samira Wiley) in a tragic scenario that echoes a real-life murder at the center of the Black Lives Matter movement. But even beyond that devastating climax, the season’s jam-packed penultimate installment is full of memorable scenes: Sophia (Laverne Cox) finally returns to general population; Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning) and Boo (Lea DeLaria) settle their differences; the prisoners put aside racial divides to stage a peaceful protest; the list goes on.

It would be an intimidating assignment even for one of the show’s veteran directors, and »

Taryn Manning, Lea DeLaria Reveal What They've Learned From Orange Is the New Black

21 June 2016 11:45 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The surprising friendship Big Boo (Lea DeLaria) and Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning) developed on Orange Is the New Black has been one of the series' high points. It shows just how much characters, like people, can evolve with the help of others and through the passage of time. It's been just as much fun for the actors as it has the viewers. "The best part is I'm hanging out with my buddy that I would hang out with off-set anyway," DeLaria told E! News when she and Manning sat down with us before the season four premiere. "We just continue to do what we would do at the bar down the street after we're done." The ladies of Orange Is the New Black have now spent four seasons as these »

Forgiving a Rapist? ‘Game of Thrones’ and ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Weigh In

20 June 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

In last night’s “Game of Thrones,” Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) finally got some long-awaited revenge. In an especially gruesome scene that marks the end to an especially gruesome arc, Sansa let Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon)’s flesh-eating dogs eat him alive, allowing a smile to flicker across her face as the hounds did their business. If anyone deserved such a death, it was Ramsay — a sadistic murderer who had tortured, flayed, mutilated, and murdered his way through the North. For Sansa, it was personal; Ramsay used marriage as an excuse to rape her repeatedly. Her wedding night, last season, was one of the more upsetting scenes in “Game of Thrones.” Even though Sansa had some notion of what she was getting into with him, Ramsay purposefully made it as terrible for her as possible; the only thing he reliably enjoyed was another person’s suffering.

Taryn Manning and Lea DeLaria Dish on Orange Is the New Black's Dark Fourth Season

20 June 2016 3:10 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

One of the main reasons Orange Is the New Black has excelled so spectacularly as a TV show is due to its realistic and moving portrayals of female friendship. Just like the bonds between Taystee and Poussey and Nicky and Red, Big Boo and Tiffany "Pennsatucky" Doggett's surprisingly sweet relationship has become one of the drama's biggest draws. They have their ups and downs, like any real friends do, but they're there for each other through it all. The most recent season especially tests their bond, so Popsugar sat down with Boo and Pennsatucky's offscreen counterparts - Lea DeLaria and Taryn Manning - to get all the details on what their season four experience was like, and why being such good friends in real life doesn't always make the acting process easier. »

'Orange Is the New Black': Everything You Need to Know for Season 4

15 June 2016 8:31 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Can it possibly have been a whole year since we last shacked up in Litchfield Penitentiary, with its mattress-less bunks, garden shed full of secrets and Piper's panties-making empire? If you're like us, there's a good chance that you gulped down Season Three of Orange Is the New Black faster than you can say "Admiral Rodcocker." To say that Jenji Kohan's addictive prison comedy/drama is highly bingeable is a huge understatement; but the downside is that 12 months down the line, we're left with a hooch hangover and a »

Watch: ‘Orange Is the New Black’ Season 4 Trailer Promises Pain and Suffering

10 May 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Netflix’s “Orange Is the New Black” may have ended with a rare moment of happiness for our inmates last year, but the newly released trailer for Season 4 promises dark times ahead as Litchfield transitions to a for-profit prison, with 100 new women arriving to make conditions even more cramped and tempers even more frayed.

The new arrivals also bring in a slew of inexperienced guards, and the official plot description for the new season reveals that the racial and economic tensions that run rampant in the halls of Litchfield will contribute to “an unprecedented culture war” in the upcoming episodes.

“Do you know the difference between pain and suffering?” Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning) asks in the new trailer, foreshadowing the chaos to come. “Pain is always there. But suffering is a choice.”

Inclusion of Diverse Lgbt Characters in Film Drops Despite a Year of Celebrated Performances, GLAAD Study Finds

2 May 2016 9:15 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Hollywood is still behind the curve when it comes to onscreen film Lgbt diversity, despite notable performances by stars like Cate Blanchett in Carol and Eddie Redmayne in The Danish Girl, GLAAD's annual Studio Responsibility Index report found. Exploring 126 films from major studios released in 2015, GLAAD found that only 17.5 percent included characters identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, and/or transgender. The inclusion percentage remained stagnant from 2014, when 20 of the 114 films surveyed included Lgbt characters. Among these characters, only one identified as transgender, and the role was used as merely a punch line. The part is indicative of a bigger trend, »
