Overview With the focus being on Valentine’s Day and Poussey, we witness love and its complications. Review (with Spoilers) With many prisoners leaving lovers behind, it makes Valentine’s day a bit of an awful holiday. But while the prisoners surely hate the day, so do the staff as well.

Orange is the New Black: Season 2/ Episode 5 “Low Self Esteem City” – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Overview As racial divides worsen, so does the overall condition of the prison. Review (with Spoilers) I am 5 episodes into this marathon and still haven’t gotten bored. Though I must admit I find it so odd how Sophia has been virtually absent on the show, especially considering Laverne Cox’s profile probably benefitted the most from this show. But, with her background...

Orange is the New Black: Season 2/ Episode 4 “A Whole Other Hole” – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Overview We discover the truth about Christopher as Red seeks to reestablish herself, as does Vee. Review (with Spoilers) I don’t know why I don’t remember season 1 having this format of which it features one specific character as everything else goes on. Be it because the featured characters of season 1 appealed more to me, or simply because my memory...

Orange is the New Black: Season 2/ Episode 3 “Hugs Can Be Deceiving” – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Overview An explanation on why Suzanne (Crazy Eyes) has such a thing for Piper, as well as us seeing Vee become the mother to all the Black girls.

As of this episode she pretty much establishes herself with everyone but Sophia....

Orange is the New Black: Season 2/ Episode 2 “Looks Blue, Tastes Red” – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Overview We move from focusing on Piper to Taystee and get to see her life before prison. Review (with Spoilers) After a rather dull episode watching Piper go through her usual fish out of water issues, we are back with the old crew and catching up. Though, for the most part, the focus is on Ms. Tasha “Taystee” Jefferson (Danielle Brooks), as...

Orange is the New Black: Season 2/ Episode 1 “Thirsty Bird” – Overview/ Review (with Spoilers)

Overview With 95% of season 1’s cast nowhere to be seen, we are stuck with Piper, Alex, and the type of characters which bring 0 interest. Review (with Spoilers) To me, if you never saw the first season and wanted to see what the hype was all about, this episode would make you think this show is vastly overrated. For, as creator...

Game of Thrones: Season 4/ Episode 9 “The Watchers on the Wall” – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

Overview The Wildlings, and allies, have made it to the wall and for the entire episode we are left wondering who is going to die. Review (with Spoilers) Though people die damn near every episode of Game of Thrones, it is rare that it is because of a full on faction vs. faction battle. But with the Wildlings, and allies, challenging the...

Game of Thrones: Season 4/ Episode 8 “The Mountain and the Viper” – Recap/ Review (with Spoilers)

Overview In another emotionally draining episode, we get quite a performance from many of the actors, as we mark another character’s death. Review (with Spoilers) I love and hate this show. I love it because the characters all have such potential, and sometimes it is realized, but I hate this show since anyone is eligible to die and it almost seems like...
