Orange is the new black

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

hahaha, I saw "Orange" in the title and at first thought it was a thread about me... then i saw the rest of the title and thought "no, that's silly"... then i clicked it!

I get this one recommended to me a lot, just haven't queued it up yet. eventually i will.

I wonder if UKJ thinks it's a documentary.

My friend Rick recommended this to me with the following bait:

'It starts with 2 lesbians getting it on'

I still haven't started it, damnit!

I'm halfway through series 1 and enjoying it a lot.

There's a good mix of characters with interesting back stories revealed via flashbacks.

I think the show is great. It's one of the few shows that has a large cast of women of color (and women, generally) and I think they do a good job of explaining why everyone got where they are without resorting to stereotypes or cliches.

Can't get used to Captain Janeway as the queen bee though, that's just weird.

This show is pretty damn good. The little Japanese chick in season 2 is pretty cute. I think the show could do with a bit more scissoring scenes, but that is just me.

You already admitted the scene was real, as there was a crowd watching and compared it to a panel show lol. :beer3: .
