Orange is the New Black. Netflix exclusive from the makers of Weeds.



I got quite a good vibe from the trailer, and I really liked Weeds on the whole. Could be interesting.

Watched the first ep. It's interesting and pretty graphic.

Will keep at it.

Graphic in what way? Just wondering if I need to pre-vet this before watching it with my wife as she doesn't like anything too realistically violent (however watching Mr Statham shoot, punch and kick people to death in various entertaining ways is okay...).

There's nothing graphic in it. It's only the language that's graphic really. I'm up to episode 11 and the quality keeps up.

There is a lot of tits and some graphic lesbian sex scenes. Nothing violent. I meant graphic for a TV show (which is sort of is).

Most of it is in the first episode.

So is the Jason Biggs character the same one from the American Pie films? He mentions shaving his pubes and the "webcam incident"

The subtitles are weird. Some bits are subtitled, some aren't and in one episode it had forced spanish subs.

Thanks, but perhaps I do need to pre-vet this then!

Doesn't sound any worse than (e.g.) HBO stuff we've watched.

Prisoner Cell Block B (for Babe) ...

Watched 4 episodes so far, really liking it.

I never watched the last season of Weeds, got bored in S7 and gave up on S8. Clear Jenji had an idea for a new show when he sent Nancy off to prison at the end of S6, then didn't care about Weeds anymore..

I like this, it's very watchable.

Nice to see Captain Janeway, although not sure the teleport would be able to beam her up now.

1 episode to go and we are hooked. Its very good and works really well binge watching.

Main character is an arsehole though. I am sure that's the point.

Started watching last night and really enjoyed the first two episodes. Never really watched Weeds but if it's this good I'd better go back and give it another go.

Watched all of them now... really good. What an ending! Hope this new age of on-demand TV brings the second season along quicker, so we don't have to wait a whole year.
