OK episode
29 August 2016 | by 851222See all my reviews

Greetings from Lithuania.

Season 2 of "Orange Is the New Black" opened with superb episode "Thirsty Bird" - it was one of the few best episodes yet. I kinda though during the whole first episode that it's just some kinda of hallucinations of Piper, after what she did at the end of season 1 and now being solo in a cell for A LONG time, she started to imagine things. I was very surprised that i was wrong, and the show now should (hopefully) do into new interesting direction, at least partly.

Second episode of season 2 "Looks Blue, Tastes Red" was OK - nothing particularly good nor bad. Story didn't moved almost anywhere, but as always involving and good script as well as superb acting makes this a nice episode overall, with surely some subplots (like the one with Dayanara's "problem") not necessary at all. Still, there is some interesting and stuff for future episodes, but now i can't wait to see where Piper's story is heading and as well to finally see how at least one of the characters got into jail after so many unfinished and interesting plot revolving around characters pre-jail life we saw in season 1.
