OITNB Season 2

13 Jun

orange_is_the_new_black_musicSo I’ve already finished season two of Orange is the New Black. Don’t worry – no spoilers here.

I admit that I was hesitant to continue watching the show after the first episode of season one. I thought it would be a predictable exploration of some hipster-ish privileged white woman acquiring tough life lessons from the poor, downtrodden, and/or the black/brown element.  But a friend encouraged me to keep watching. I did. And I enjoyed it — thoroughly.  Yes, the antics of Piper Chapman irritate the shit out of me at times but the show is much bigger than the girl who used to craft artisanal soaps from her Brooklyn home.

The highlight of season two was the development of character Poussey Washington portrayed by Samira Wiley. I just fell in love with her. And in my mind, Pouseey and I are total BFFs.

My affinity for Taystee and Nicky grew as well this season. Oh and Crazy Eyes and Lorna Morello. Hell, I might as well say I love them all.  The characters are just so rich.

Who is your favorite OITNB character? Like if you had to pick a prison wife, who would it be?

And here’s a pic of Samira Wiley in the June issue of Essence. Love that dress!
