If You Miss Orange Is the New Black, Watch Weeds

8 July 2014 10:30 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Orange Is the New Black is wonderful. If you haven't watched it, you should watch it. If you've only watched it once, watch it again! There are jokes you missed. But if you feel you've wrung all the joy you can out of its 26 episodes, and you're feeling bereft and lonely, one other show can scratch some of those same itches: Weeds. That shouldn't be too shocking — both shows are from creator Jenji Kohan, after all — but the similarities wind up being stronger than you might think.For those who don't remember, Weeds debuted on Showtime in 2005; Mary Louise Parker stars as the recently widowed Nancy Botwin, mother of two boys and resident of the oppressively tony California suburb of Agrestic. After her husband died, Nancy decided to start selling pot as a way to make money. This, of course, turns out to be more fraught than »

Sandra Bernhard to Guest Star on FX Comedy ‘You’re the Worst’

27 June 2014 11:07 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sandra Bernhard has signed on to appear in FX’s new comedy “You’re the Worst.”

Bernhard will play herself in an episode titled ‘Equally Dead Inside.”  Some of her previous television credits include “Rosanne,” “The L Word,” and “Switched at Birth.”

“You’re the Worst” is an original comedy from “Weeds” writer Stephen Falk.  A dark romantic comedy, the show follows two people who haven’t been very successful with love or happiness.

Narcissistic and self-destructive, Jimmy (Chris Geere) thinks that all relationships are doomed, while the cynical but people-pleasing Gretchen (Aya Cash) knows that relationships aren’t for her.  So when the two meet at a wedding, it’s only natural that they go home together and, despite their better judgement, begin to find themselves falling for each other.

“You’re the Worst” premieres at 10:30 p.m. July 17 on FX.

Bernhard is repped by Genesis Entertainment.

Orange Is the New Black, Ep 2.13: “We Have Manners. We Are Polite.” is like two different shows in one

24 June 2014 12:04 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Orange Is the New Black, Season 2, Episode 13: “We Have Manners. We Are Polite.”

Written by Jenji Kohan

Directed by Contantine Makris

Released Friday, June 6 on Netflix Instant

Bad seed,” “insane,” “psycho,” “the real evil”—these are just some of the ways in which Vee is referred to this episode. Strangely, it is a finale that works hard in its side stories to show a fuzzy line between good people and bad people, and mostly succeeds in doing so. So why exactly it features a central story that works to prove the complete opposite, about a sociopath with no redeeming qualities who is treated like a cancer on the prison, is a mystery. Are we really supposed to cheer her death after we just learned our lesson over the course of two seasons that life is not so clear cut? Close out the story singing “Ding Dong the Witch Is »

Piper Chapman and Nancy Botwin Have a Weird Amount of Things in Common

24 June 2014 10:59 AM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If Orange Is the New Black has ever reminded you of Weeds, consider this: Jenji Kohan created both hits. Even though the shows have two totally different premises and characters, we can't help but notice the similarities between their deeply flawed yet lovable heroines, Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) and Nancy Botwin (Mary-Louise Parker). After bidding farewell to Nancy in the Weeds series finale in 2012, we couldn't wait to see what Kohan had in store for us next. Fortunately, she hasn't disappointed with Oitnb, giving us a badass who carries Nancy's torch. Keep reading to see all the times Piper reminded us of Nancy. Source: Netflix, Showtime »
