    Glad to see the return of Lori Petty.

    Hoping that she will be guest eligible so that she can get an Emmy nomination.

    I literally just started but it’s almost as if the first ten minutes of the season is their way of saying fuck you for snubbing Uzo Aduba.

    69 on metacritic.

    First episode wasn’t good but Aduba is coming for that nomination. Half way through the second season I already know who I’m pushing for supporting Actress. Season 3 was Manning, season 4 was Wiley, season 5 was Brooks, and now I need Moore to get nominated. Assuming she keeps getting great material.

    Also, Michael Harney is coming for that guest nomination.

    This show is honestly just as hard to watch as Handmaid’s Tale. Even with the humor it is really bleak

    Adrienne C. Moore has been fantastic this season she deserves a nomination.

    Half way through the season and I have a major complaint: this show has absolutely zero focus. I have defended the flaws in the past but this first half has not been good. There are good moments but the show has too many unnecessary plots and characters taking away from possibly great moments. There was a scene with Sophia and Gloria talking that could have been so great, but it was not explored further because the show was too busy with plots that don’t matter. Did we really need an episode focusing on Daddy?Also, there has been a criminal lack of screen time for Taystee and Cidny. I really hope the second half improves. I also hope the next season is the last.

    So I finished, and tragically, this was not good. The writing was bad, their was no focus, and half of the story lines were boring and pointless. The other half of the story lines could have been good but didn’t get the time or attention they needed, so they ended up being a mess too. Some of the new characters were intolerable and had way too much screen time, aka Badison. So many of the story lines could have payed off so well but they just ended up disappointing, like with Frieda. Also, it is criminal how little we spent with Brooks and Cidny. None of the actors got the material they deserved, however, my MVP’s were Moore, Pimentel, Brooks, and surprisingly, Sandow. I really liked Sandow this season. Slight spoiler, I was disappointing Ruiz didn’t die solely because I wanted her to be guest eligible.

    There are a decent amount of people that could be guest eligible, off the top of my head: Lori Petty, Laverne Cox, and Michael Harney.

    If Elizabeth Rodriguez is eligible episode 4 would be a great submission

    I don’t see the comparison to THT. This season is bleak, but there are plenty of moments of levity in it, unlike THT which has very little. Inmates are screwed over, but most end up okay.

    Yeah I said that after only watching the first two episodes when there was like 4 beatings and the talk of the “points” after Frieda’s suicide, it definitely got lighter.

    Finished it less than an hour ago. Still processing it all. Better than 5 definitely.

    I think this was the most tightly written and cohesive season in a very long time. I found it to be a much needed redemption for this show that was annoying me. The first episode was not good at all, but it got better. I think the Sophia/Gloria thing was just something to give some sort of closure now that Sophia is being written off the show, I mean released. This show will always have problems with too much shifting focus, tone issues, and unresolved threads. That’s sort of the point for a lot of these little story lines.

    I’m glad it ended the way it did. The narrative needs to evolve now.
