Did You Know?
One of Larry Bloom (Jason Biggs
)'s major first-season storylines is the Modern Love column he writes for the New York Times. In real life, Larry Smith, Piper Kerman
's real-life fiancé (now husband) actually wrote such a column for the Modern Love section of the Times, about his experience being Piper (Taylor Schilling
)'s fiancé while she was incarcerated. It was published on March 28, 2010, and unlike the fictionalized version of the column, it was titled "A Life to Live, This Side of the Bars", and it didn't mention any anecdotes about Piper's fellow inmates. See more
The timeline of the show often changes; the first season indicates being set in 2010 (upon entering prison, Piper begs Larry to not watch the latest Mad Men
without her, and Larry is shown the latest episode from season 4, which originally aired in 2010). However, season 5 references the San Bernarndino shootings, which occurred in 2015. This cannot be possible as Piper's prison sentence was for 15 months and only about a year has passed in those five seasons. See more
It's just chilling, you know? Kickin' it with somebody, talking, making mad stupid jokes. And like, not even wanting to go to sleep 'cuz then you might be without 'em for a moment and you don't want that.
