have to say, the previews were rather a disappointment. but they pinpointed me to the series OZ ... which i might be looking into.

I WATCH THREE EPISODES NOT BAD NOT GREAT

joe pete

it's a family show

dt

Enjoying it, and agree with one mainstream reviewer who said something to the effect that it aims at, and hits squarely, the adult made-for-cable audience. Nothing risky...kind of like an old skinemax piece, actually.

I read a review that said it hooks you w/ the lesbian sex scenes and then loses you w/ it's indecision of whether it's trying to be a comedy or a drama.

Sounds like Weeds meets The L Word.

rjm

I just put it in my Q. Will watch later.

Ferley

I like it.

CordCutter

rjejr, you had me at lesbian sex scenes.

Peter Davenport

Yep, just put filth in it and people will flock to it. Even my 'Christian' relatives. I'm just here for the FLIX, as in NETFLIX.

People always complain about the mockbusters. The Asylum movies that pop up very closely named to a recent blockbuster, but they must be doing well. They always climb Instantwatcher and NF commissions Asylum to make them, apparently even going as far to tell Asylum the plot they want...

“It’s not like we said, ‘There aren’t enough crappy B-level movies out there, so we must corner that market!’ All we know is we’re making a film for Netflix, and they tell us what they want.”

As they say Peter, there is no accounting for taste, it is what it is.

Aron

"NF commissions Asylum to make them"

No way.

Like DUDE!

Asylum works with the SyFy channel.

They also bank on the fools who rent them because they didn't pay enough attention to the Title name. Pretty sure same applies to Netflix too.

Read the article Aron, that quote is from it. All we know is we're making a film for Netflix, and they tell us what they want.

Elizabeth

Loved it, definitely had that Weeds humor/pace to it. I power watched the whole season and hope a second is in the works.

Shawn

I love the show, some great performances! We are not binge watching. So far Netflix shows: House Of Cards, Excellent! Orange, Great! Hemlock Grove,Not your best work!

Melanie

This is a fantastic show. The storyline is great. The acting is out of this world! And so many great actors. Plus great characters. I love the flashbacks. I really am completely in love with this show. Not binge watching; I don't really have the time to do that with any show, though.

Cory

It was pretty good. Watched the whole first season. Can't wait for season 2.

andreas banks

Great show i like netflix"s balls into putting something orginal out there. Like hbo with true blood this might be the start of good stuff.

This is the kinda of shitty TV that drove me to get rid of cable. If Netflix thinks flashing a bunch of breasts on streaming is going to save them they are sorely mistaken. I only got twenty minutes into the first episode before I gave up.

Joe

I binge watched it over the weekend. It takes a few episodes before the characters develop and interact. (Don't judge it by just one episode.) Jenji Kohan (the creator of Weeds) is the Co-creator of OitNB. Metacritic gives it an 81/100.

BWX

POS program. Just get all the freaking flix you can get on BluRay and streaming and forget about all this other garbage.

rjm

I watched 4 episodes so far and liked it.

Taylor Schilling is a cutie so that helps.

Sean

After the first episode, the nudity dies down and the show becomes relatively funny and somewhat clever. It is definitely worth sticking with it. Not quite as good as House of Cards but really good programming. I think that this is Netflix heading in the right direction after some misteps with AD and Hemlock Grove (so sad that AD wasn't better!).

what every happen to LILYHAMMER IS THERE GOING TO BE SEASON 2
