Orange is the New Black: Season 5

June 15, 2017

Damn ladies. Orange is the New Black just keeps getting better and better. How is that even possible? Every season builds on the previous. Not a misstep in this season. Absolute amazing acting, directing, editing, and writing. Highlights include,

Natasha Lyonne as Nicky getting clean and reaching out
Uzo Aduba as Suzanne falling apart again and again (another Emmy?)
Danielle Brooks as Taystee negotiating the deal of the century
Taylor Schilling as Piper realizing her fate and future
Lea DeLaria as Boo proving butch girls look good doing romance
Jackie Cruz and Diane Guerrero as Flaca & Maritza proving the ridiculousness of our instant fame culture
Selenis Leyva as Gloria delivering a powerhouse performance and becoming my favorite character for S5
Taryn Manning as Tiffany (Pennsyltucky) navigating the complicated waters of rape culture, forgiveness, and desire
Adrienne Moore as Black Cindy full of comfort and relief in the final episode
Yael Stone as Lorna crazy as ever
Kate Mulgrew as Red full of revenge
Laura Prepon as Alex filled with PTSD and remorse  and just wanting to stay free (of drama and violence)
Kimiko Glenn as Brook walking the long road of grief
Brad William Henke as Piscatella leading with misdirected spite and evil in the face of homophobia
Elizabeth Rodriguez as Aleida figuring out how to be free
Dascha Polanco as Dayanara facing her consequences

I’m sure I missed someone. What a roller coaster ride this season was and what a cliff hanger. All bets are off that everyone will survive the final moments of the raid. It’s Netflix after all. Unbelievable. Thank you Jenji Kohan and crew for this gift. 5 out of 5.

OITNB: Season 5, 3 more episodes to go

June 13, 2017

If you’re going to watch Season 5 of Orange is the New Black, make sure you don’t read any of the spoilers online. By accident, I just discovered the big spoiler and am so angry. I like being surprised. Damn you Internet! Ugh. 3 more episodes to go. Don’t tell me any more!

 

Gay Hollywood – Thursdays in June (TCM)

June 4, 2017

Yikes, this graphic from TCM’s website makes the station’s Pride Month film series very white and male. Surely there could have been some pictures of Dorothy Arzner, Katherine Hepburn or Agnes Moorehead thrown into the mix. And that’s just the first three women I could think of off the top of my head.

Still it’s fun TCM openly celebrates Pride Month with a great selection of films each year.  See the full list at TCM.

RIP Robert Osborne. We miss you.

Orange is the New Black | Season 5 Official Trailer (YouTube)

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: Season 2

February 19, 2017

crazy-ex-girlfriend-s2Netflix premiered Season 2 of the CW’s Crazy Ex-Girlfriend this past week. I binged through the delightful comedy infused with original genre-homage musical numbers. Not as edgy as the premiere season, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend‘s sophomore outing still holds its own spoofing sit-coms and proving the cast and crew are some of the most talented folks working in television. It’s not easy to make me laugh, so I don’t always judge the quality of a comedy by how often I LOL. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend continues its smart journey through the crazy world of one woman’s quest to find the perfect mate. The musical numbers still shine. The cast is remarkable. Perhaps not the best season this series will put out, it’s still worth spending time with Rebecca Munch and her assortment of oddball friends and family. 3.5 out of 5.

Also, I can’t decide which musical number to profile here, so I’ll post a few. These are pure genius parody:
