Orange Is the New Black Stars Talk Emmys Day Prep, Lori Petty's Return and the Show's Impact on Society

24 August 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Orange Is the New Black isn't just a wildly entertaining series—it's also a means for raising awareness about a breadth of issues, ranging from ageism to sexism to homophobia. Stars Lorraine Toussaint, who plays the villainous Vee, and Michael Harney, who stars as the compassionate Sam Healy, are both keenly aware of the impact the show has had on society and feel extremely grateful to be apart of such an important series. "I'm so proud," Toussaint told E! News at the 2014 Entertainment Weekly pre-Emmy party in Los Angeles last night. "I'm proud to be a part of the show because it's changing the face of television. It's addressing…so many different issues. And »

'Orange Is The New Black' Episode 2.11 Recap: "Take A Break From Your Values"

26 June 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Throughout most of Orange is the New Black, fans have wondered how a sweet, old nun could be in prison. Episode 11 shows Sister Jane Ingalls (Beth Fowler) from her first days as a nun. When she first began her life as a nun, she attended a protest against war with two other new nuns. One of the women lied to Sister Ingalls and told her that they got permission to go to the protest, but the nuns end up in trouble. After her first taste of protest, Sister gets too involved with other protests because she loves the fame she receives. After protesting often to get notoriety, and writing a book, called “Nun Shall Pass,” Sister is called a narcissist and is excommunicated from the Church.

Now, in Litchfield, Sister goes overboard once again when Soso (Kimiko Glenn) starts a group to protest the prison conditions and the way the »

Orange is the New Black’s new season has a very strong first half, depicting the cascade of different lives in Litchfield prison while still maintaining the light balance that makes the show easy to consume in a binge sitting. The second half, however, begins to falter around the ninth episode, due to the tired »

Orange Is The New Black: The Complete First Season Blu-Ray Review

12 May 2014 10:07 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

My favorite dramas are those which manage to immerse me in a world strikingly different from but still (in a vicarious but nevertheless potent manner) comparable to my own. Breaking Bad, which started out by exploring the seedy criminal underbelly of modern-day New Mexico, featured dozens of colorful characters (perennial badass Mike Ehrmantraut, refined sociopath Gus Fring) and a highly ambitious central plot (a mild-mannered chemistry teacher comes to rule the meth business with an iron fist) but was never less than addictively believable. To give a more far-out example, Game of Thrones is set in the high-fantasy world of Westeros, but its inhabitants are shockingly relatable as flesh-and-blood human beings, and viewers are quickly able to look past the show’s more fantastical elements to find the compelling, realistic human drama beneath. I’m pleased to say that, for many of the same reasons, I can add Netflix’s hilarious, »
