Sometimes it seems like our ladies are in summer camp with some restrictions but a lot of freedom. As we see in this season, the women were imprisoned for a variety of reasons. Rosa Cisneros (Barbara Rosenblat) has juicy back story. Middle-aged, frumpy and dying of cancer, Cisneros once was a gorgeous fireball with a lust for men and crime. And maybe Sister Jane Ingalls (Beth Fowler) isn't the innocent victim of a social protest as she likes to portray. It does not get much better than this. The back stories are delightful and insightful.
There is a new evil in the prison in the form of Yvonne "Vee" Parker (Lorraine Toussaint). Toussaint is standout as the conniving and diabolical Vee who can smother you with kindness with one hand and strangle you with the other. No one is safe from Vee and Toussaint is one of the best new faces around. We should be seeing more of her in other roles. On a harmless and more comical side, is the young Asian American prisoner Brook Soso (Kimiko Glenn). Young, beautiful and outspoken, the girl never stops talking...well, there is "one" way to get her to stop talking.
Galina "Red" Reznikov was ousted from her roost as the kitchen queen so now she has to create a new scheme which could lead to violence if she pushes her limits with Vee.. Kate Mulgrew was born to play "Red" and she is a big part of Season 2. That brings us back to pampered, angry Piper Chapman--one of the most annoying and unsympathetic "heroes" on TV. This season we see Piper has a dark side and her relationship with Alex only has more twists and turns. The poignant part is seeing how her relationship with Larry Bloom (Jason Biggs) disintegrates as both try to adjust to their lives apart. Some serious stuff to consider amongst all the mayhem of prison life. And don't forget Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren (Uzo Aduba) one of the best characters on any show around. Crazy Eyes has her own story to tell and how crazy is she really? Maybe it's the people around her. Mix Vee and Crazy Eyes for some major trouble.
ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK is about to combine comedy with a sense of dramatic urgency. Life is no picnic in prison for these women yet somehow most survive and maybe thrive. It's an interesting character study and people tend to stay with their racial groups. The African Americans, the Latinas and the whites along with sub category of lesbians. Pity the two Asians Change and Soso. Where do they fit in? Only the seniors seem to have found racial harmony as a mixed group.
This wonderful show entertains but is a picture into a very specific slice of life. Watch one episode and you will be addicted. And don't miss the absolutely campy ending to Season 2.
Most of the characters seem pretty realistic-but I have no idea of the dynamics of a women's minimum security prison! Looking forward to Season 3 but it isn't available yet. ☹
If you liked the Sopranos, you will likely love this. I didn't like the Sopranos and sure don't like Orange is the New Black.
