Binge Watch Recommendation
As I've just returned to Examiner.com, your Jacksonville TV Examiner hasn't had a chance to tell you about Orange is the New Black yet. Orange is a new original series produced exclusively for Netflix and all episodes debuted online on July 11, 2013. Netflix renewed for a second season and thank goodness because season 1 does end making you want more, more, more. The series is loosely based on the memoir of Piper Kerman, renamed Piper Chapman here, who chronicled her experiences in prison. Taylor Schilling plays Piper, Laura Prepon (That '70s Show, a memorable Castle episode) plays her ex-lover who is implicated in landing Piper in prison, and Jason Biggs plays fiance Larry. Once in prison, Piper meets a huge supporting cast that is too numerous to list here but all the women are unique and well written. Every episode delves into back-stories of the various women, opening your eyes to various social issues and further illuminating the character's lives.
Friday August 23, 2013
There is not much to get excited about on Fridays during the summer. The CW (WCWJ) is running cycle 20 of America's Next Top Model (9) which features both male and female models for the first time in the US edition of the worldwide franchise. A new Strike Back is on Cinemax (10). Friday is the night I suggest clearing off your DVR or for binge watching something OnDemand or Netflix.
Saturday, August 24, 2013
There is not much to get excited about on Saturdays right now either. AMC has the third season of Hell on Wheels in progress (9). Starz has the import The White Queen (9). NBC (WTLV) is burning off an episode of Do No Harm (10). NFL home team Jacksonville Jaguars host the Philadelphia Eagles in a preseason game on ABC (WJXX) (7:30).
