    Re: Orange Is the New Black on Netflix

    I don't differentiate over Hetero, Gay, Lesbian or Animal sex on the screen. To me it is just uncomfortable to watch. Probably my age and the times I grew up in. The fact that I considered it porn might be an indicator of how out of touch I am with prevailing liberal attitudes towards simulated sex on screen.

    OMG! Did I just call me a conservative? Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo !

    PS - Putting it all out there, I'm not too fond of nudity in films either. Except for animals. Animals are OK nude, just not having (probably unsimulated) sex. :>)

    For me, "porn" is actual pornography, i.e. people having ACTUAL sex. Nothing on regular TV (including HBO and Netflix) falls under that definition. Explicit sex scenes - and I don't even think the ones on this show are that - on cable still aren't porn. They're just scenes showing similated sex. None of that bothers me.

    I don’t think actual sex is porn – if so, a lot of people are engaging in porn, and all us of are the result of porn. Pornography is defined as the portrayal of sexual acts for the purpose of sexual arousal. That definition can be, and has been, debated for decades.

    Having said that, I think some of the sex scenes on OITNB are a bit too explicit.

    Me too. I am not a prude, but sometimes I am uncomfortable

    I still don't think anything on this show can be called PORN. That's a much different thing than what they're portraying. There are much more explicit scenes on Skinemax and that's only considered soft-core. Anyway, this isn't really the right thread for a porn debate.

    In other news, we're getting the fabulous Mary Steenburgen next season!

    Vee was the best villain since Gus on "Breaking Bad." It's fascinating to watch the complexity of these characters. Pennsatucky is terrifying and Poussey just breaks my heart. Samira Wiley should win an Emmy for her performance.

    Agreed about Samira. She was incredible this season. I think a lot of the Emmy process is SO political; not just who wins, but who is even put up for nomination by their respective shows. Unfortunately, I think Taylor Schilling is probably put up, even though I don't think she's even in the top 5 (even top 10) strongest actors on the show. Even though this is an ensemble show, I think she's still perceived as the star. I'd love to see Samira, Danielle Brooks, Taryn Manning (totally terrifying!) and Kate Mulgrew get some Emmy love. I can see Lorraine Toussaint getting a nod for guest actress.

    I think Samira is one of the cast members moved up to series regular for next season, along with Dascha Polanco.

    i fininished watching today

    whatever the crazy eyes girl name is she was great in the finale, all the crazyness to the crying at the end was excellent acting

    when i was about 6 eps in i was like wtf... look here i'm a guy and i love naked women but i did think alot of the scenes were unnecessary, but then again cable and whatnot these shows because they can basically push the limit they basically like to load up on expletives and nakedness even when it isnt necessary to the story. i notice on certain canadian shows because you can say "sh!t" on tv the shows insert the word "sh!t" into the dialogue as much as possible even when it doesnt fit. instead of writing it like if people were having a regular conversation

    ---

    the old Rosa wasnt believable to me. her juxtaposed with the young black widow one i couldnt see it
