Today is the day. June 6. Season 2 of Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black is available. All 13 episodes.
“How many episodes are we going to watch tonight?” W asked this morning.
“One. Maybe,” I replied.
Of course, I’m itching to find out what’s happened to Piper and crew.
But I already don’t want it to be over.
That’s how much I love Orange Is the New Black. It’s funny, it’s poignant, it’s got lesbians and Laura Prepon in those black glasses. Damn.
Besides, it’s the only show out there that can reference Pablo Neruda and female ejaculation in the same episode. That Jenji Kohan is a genius.
So, binge or save? It reminds me of a cherry Tootsie Pop and the eternal question of “How many licks?” (Of course it does, Middle-age Butch. You know you wanted to say that.)
We’ll start with episode one tonight. It’s called “Thirsty Bird.” I’ll make cheese steaks and tater tots for dinner, because it’s Friday night. It’ll be an event.
Maybe we’ll watch an episode Saturday night and one on Sunday night.
All bets are off after that.
Because it’s a show that revolves around lesbians. Butch lesbians and crazy lesbians. College graduate lesbians and sexy lesbians. Bad lesbians and bad-ass lesbians.
You know you can’t stop at just one.

Are you watching OITNB tonight? Will you binge watch or spread ’em out?
