Trivia

Jenji Kohan explains during the DVD commentary, that the decision of literally burning down Agrestic, and moving on to another storyline, was due to the fact that the writers were getting bored of writing suburbia jokes. Mary-Louise Parker was particularly pleased with the idea of killing the original premise of the show, having said loving taking risks when it comes to her acting. See more »

Getting old
9 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

This show used to be good, but it's obviously out of ideas now. The first few seasons were interesting and the storyline definitely kept you coming back every week. But now it needs to conclude or get canceled. The characters are getting stale and to be honest, Nancy has just become annoying. Her character is so boring and sullen. You just want to yell at the screen at the end of every episode, "Get your s@#t together already". They're ruining what was a good show by dragging it out too long. The only reason I've continued to watch is because I have nothing better to do and I'm hoping they will conclude it, but I don't know how long I can keep that up as I simply have no interest in watching this show anymore. END IT!!!
