Why did this show not already have a thread?

Very good and funny show, the third season launched on Netflix today. (I'll have finished it all by Sunday.) If you haven't seen it before,the first season is worth a try; just understand that main character Piper and her fiancÚ Larry are the worst part of it, and it gets better as it focuses more on the other characters.

Absolutely. I've just started Season 3, but I've really liked the last two seasons. Season 2 got a little to embroiled in the warring factions, but the resolution was exquisite.
Here's hoping Season 3 is even better than the first two. And less Piper! (episode one had precious little of her)

Piper is awful in season 2, but she's more interesting in S3.

This is next on my list of things to watch - a lot of the people I know in WoW are really into it. I read the book because it sounded interesting and I don't have Netflix, but it looks like it's available on iTunes now. (Possibly just the first season, but I'm sure the rest will follow.)

Really enjoyed the three seasons. So many great characters. Every scene with Boo, in particular, but so many others.

Finale of S2 was excellent.

S3 finale also excellent. Cindy was unexpected and well done. Alex?? And I really like the direction they took with Piper.

A lot of meh with some laughs. It's.......Okay, but that's as far as I'd go praising it.

I have about 10 minutes left of Season 3.

And yes, Piper has finally become more interesting.

Definitely Murrin - I went right off her character!

I still haven't watched all of season 3 .. thats the Prison lockdown season? Where they're negotiating with authorities for improved conditions? Yeah if so not finished .. I love them when I watch them but haven't been sufficiently motivated to sit down and watch Razz

That's season 5! You may have skipped ahead a bit, or just forgotten how long it's gone on like I did (I thought this year would be season 4). I had to look it up because 3 and 4 get mushed together in my head, but 3 is where the privatisation stuff starts and Piper starts her panty business, then season 4 is ratcheting up the tension between the new guards and the prisoners until they hit breaking point.

3-4-5 is where the show stopped having discrete storylines for each season. Season 5 is IMO a masterpiece of plotting (it all takes place over 3 days!), but 4 and 5 both had bullshit cliffhanger endings that didn't give a satisfying conclusion.

OH! Hey Im old I get stuff like this mixed up lol .. oh well I disliked Piper for a lot longer then right thru to season 5 .. I don't know she seems she could be turning a corner. I do love the show .. and I have the rest of the season sitting there just waiting to be watched..

Yeah Piper ... *shudders*
