So far watched the first four episodes of season 3 and already liking it more than season 2.

Season 3 was so much better than two. Season 3 might actually be my favorite season.

Yeah I'm done with the 10th episode and hands down this is my favorite season of them all. I think they've nailed the characters and the interactions between them is hilarious and for once every single one of their back story appears interesting.

Just finished the finale of season 3 and again have to say that hands down the best season of the series so far. This time it actually felt comedic and it had a lot of heart. I really hope season 4 continues in this direction or maintains the same enthusiasm.

Saw complete season 1 and 2, still have to watch season 3.

I agree the series 1 finale is awesome, you pause for a moment at the end of it and you realize how much Piper has changed (staying as vague as possible to avoid spoilers for others). Season 2 is less focused on Piper and more of a group effort, but still entertaining. Loved how Caputo got what he got.

I've enjoyed all three seasons up to this point. My girlfriend and I were Nicky and Red for Halloween

I love the actress that plays Nicky. Read she fell on hard times or something though?

Season 3 is so entertaining. I think they got everything right with the level of humor, drama and story. I found it better than season 1 & 2 combined.

Yeah, but did they up the level of naked Hot-Donna? I mean, that's all that really matters.

Not disagreeing with you but Season 2 was my favorite by far. The drama with Vee... the climax at the end of the final episode... 3 seemed like a little bit of a letdown. I hope season 4 picks back up.

Can we post spoilers?

Just finished season three! Since that happened last year and season 4 is about to start and no one posted since December anyway I guess it's implied there will be spoilers, right?

Anyway, all in all this show is very good and entertaining. Season 1 was very focused on Piper, the last scene with Pensatucky was so intense; it all started like an half comedy, and by the end it was terrifying to see Piper snapping out of control and risking homicide, after it all came crashing down on her.

Season 2's start was even more intense, it was an excellent follow up on the snowy smackdown and Piper realizing on the plane how badly she screwed up was so memorable. And of course Vee was a good antagonist, I could hardly stand her smug face, her mafia attitude as she was staring down people... standing ovation for season 2's ending!

Season 3 seemed a bit less focused, all over the place; by now it's clear that it's no longer all about Piper but it's an ensemble cast of characters, and even though they got rid of all the antagonists - Vee, Fig, Pornstache - they found in the end some more unconventional baddies to make up for it, Coates is really disgusting and so the corporate dudes running the prison now.

I thought Stella would be the one doing what Alex feared, but in the end I wasn't right... I love how Piper's brother told her she "wasn't yet Walter White, just Walter White-ish", but she sure pulled an Heisenberg on Stella.

Now we're left with a minor cliffhanger... or well, actually major, but still the final moments of the season were all about the lake. Curious to see what happens in Season 4 and how they'll continue to juggle all the characters and the consequences of the lake trip!

This show is like a band that blew most of their load on their first album and never came close to topping it.

Season 1 was great; Season 2 was good, but you could see a bit of a drop-off, but you thought, nope, they'll bring it again in Season 3...which they did not.  This is already on my list of shows I have given up on.

Mostly agree, but season 4 was pretty damn awesome.

Watching season 4 currently up to 10 episodes. It's just as good as season 3 so far which is my favorite season.

Enjoying the latest season, but trying not to binge the entire season.  The interaction between Healy and the new character 'Lolly' is interesting.  Also, love how they tell most of the back stories of the main characters.  Funny how 'Lolly' is even too out there for 'Crazy Eyes'.

God damn, the end of Lolly's arc had me almost in tears.

Yeah that was really heart wrenching, the characters for the past two seasons have nailed it and I love their character development.

Wrapped up season 4 last night... damn. Great season. The depressing punches just kept coming. I was waiting for the light at the end of the tunnel and it just got darker and darker.

One thing that aggravated me about this season was the dead guard.Was he actually hired as a guard, or did he sneak in? If he was hired as a guard, the other guards should have noticed he was missing, and by finding a guy in a guard uniform buried in the garden, it wouldn't have been difficult to put 2 and 2 together. If he snuck in, why did we hear no discussion among the higher ups about there being a dead guard in the garden when there were no guards missing?

That's not the way I thought about it. The death of the guard can play either way, since the entire guard changed right after the previous ones quit, the new ones would not be sure who it was. So no suspicion on their side as to who he was. It didn't bother me.

Just finished the latest season.  The last 3 episodes were great, but some really heart wrenching moments.  Next season should be great.  You cannot leave just yet Judy King.

Just to mention that the new season has been loaded into Netflix.  I have watched the first two episodes and the 2nd episode has some sick moments.  They did an interesting backstory on Frieda(Dale Soules) in the second episode.  Trying not to binge the whole season.

Binged the whole season.

Overall, very strong I'd say. My only complain is some of the backstories seemed......pointless, and the cliffhangerish thing they ended on also robbed us of any real sense of resolution to the story of the season.

I'm through 8 episodes of the new season so far. Outside of a few cringe worthy attempts to push obvious political buttons, I'm really enjoying this season.

Yea, it's very very political. It's a great season, my only complaints were a lack of resolution (at least for me) and some pointless backstories. Short of that, I thought it was excellent.

Another amazing season, this show has some really well developed characters. I didn't mind all the backstories, they all gave a sense of extra depth I think. Apart from Daya's backstory which I don't think was really needed, didn't learn anything new.

I personally think the last 3 seasons have been flat out awesome. I didn't enjoy season 2 at all and season 1 was a strong opener but these last 3 seasons to me have been fantastic and really well rounded. I don't mind the cliffhanger so much, I think it was a good stopping point. There's some very emotional episodes this season, very little to celebrate. I think for me this is now Netflix's most enjoyable original content.

Finished the new season over the weekend. Hands down my favorite season so far.

Did the show runners make an error, or did the COs miscount? The COs stated that they counted multiple times and came up "10 short" on the inmate count. We have the following 10 in the pool;

- Taystey
- Cindy
- Susan
- Red
- Nicki
- Piper
- Alex
- The Prepper
- The unibrow girl
- The woman whose son is in the hospital

Through the fence went
- Tiffany
- Chang

That gives us 12 girls that should be missing. Caputo's lady friend is in the mix and is being counted accidentally, which means the guards should be counting 11 short, not 10. Is someone going to be able get away unnoticed?
