  1. Ellen does it again – love it… OITNB is a great show, and I’m really looking forward to season 2. The book written by Piper, which the show is based on is interesting but a little boring at the same time, nothing like the show.

    • Yes. Apparently she will appear in the first episode so that they give her some kind of exit from the show.
