I tend to watch a lot of different shows, different styles with different storylines and different characters - it's hard to remember exactly what was happening from one season to the next. I tend to re-watch and binge-watch while doing so.
It turns out I am not the only one, especially with Netflix shows like Orange Is The New Black.
During a survey conducted by the people of Netflix, they found that most fans of Orange Is The New Black, rewatch old episodes in preparation for a new season.
We are some die-hard fans! Netflix also released the series most re-watched episodes. As expected, viewers prefer to re-indulge in the last three episodes of a season (those always make great refreshers!), but the one that remains supreme is, of course, season 1, episode 1 when Piper Chapman leaves her supportive fiancé Larry for her new home: a woman’s prison. I have seen that episode a few times myself.
Some popular episodes include:
Episode 1 - “I wasn’t ready”
Sentenced to fifteen months for a crime committed in her youth, Piper Chapman leaves her supportive fiance Larry for her new home: a woman’s prison.
Episode 12 - “Fool me once”
Painful truths reorient several relationships and careers: Pennsatucky feels disrespected by Piper; Larry gives a revealing radio interview.
Episode 13 - “Can’t fix crazy”
Red’s scheme to reclaim her kitchen backfires; the inmates stage a Christmas pageant; Piper’s plans unravel even as she realizes her life is in jeopardy,
Episode 11 - “Take a break from your values”
Piper is shocked at an unexpected change in her status; Soso’s hunger strike attracts new support that takes on a religious fervor.
Episode 12 - “It was the change”
Tensions run high as a prison power outage forces several issues to come to light; Piper finds herself compromised and is forced to think on her feet.
Episode 13 - “We have manners. We’re polite”
Several futures hang in the balance as the inmates face and confront their worst nightmares: Life will never be the same again.
Episode 11 - “We can be heroes”
Caputo and Piper confront labor issues. A miracle occurs in Norma’s group. Crazy Eyes’ erotica winds up in the hands of the staff.
Episode 12 - “Don’t make me come back there”
Daya goes into labor. Sophia suffers a hate crime. Stella helps Piper with a business snag. Taystee takes on a new role.
