    I have two theories on this: 1) As Netflix is denying this and Prepon's people have no comment, I hope Prepon is just holding out for more money and she will reach an agreement with Netflix or 2) She realized Scientology isn't really "yay gay."

    If Netflix fills her absence with more Larry, I'm done.

    I'm pretty sure she was the main reason a lot of people kept watching the show (including me)....they're going to have to bring her back :/

    Yeah, I thought it was pretty clear Piper killed her. It was arguably murder, too, but considering the likelihood that Pennsatucky would've tried to murder her again, with Healy now turning the blind eye, it's really self-defense. Highly unlikely Litchfield will see it that way, though.

    I'm super disappointed Alex will have to be written off the show; that's gonna be a big loss to the charisma of the leading cast. Kate Mulgrew can still bring it, however.

    I hadn't seen so many negative racial stereotypes together since the early 90s. Are they going for that retro feeling on purpose? Seriously disgusting.

    Hmmm, I hadn't thought anyone would be so offended by the characters. I mean, it didn't seem to me to be Dave Chappellian stereotypes... you have some specific situations you felt were over the top?

    i read an article in "the nation" with this same complaint, and i just didn't agree with it at all. but i don't know, maybe as a white male i don't have the proper perspective to say so.

    Unsureeee since it is based on a book based on real life and the changes to the show don't appear to be in the character's races. I'm going with the fact that racial stereotypes are rooted in some bits of truth.

    Your ability to determine the amount that "a bit" is is going to be essential to interpreting that. I suggest looking in your pants to find out just how much.

    While it sucks to see her go, it does make the story more true to life. Piper Kerman's ex girlfriend, "Nora," wasn't actually in prison with her.

    I watched about four or five episodes of this before I removed it from my queue. I just can't get into watching a show about women in prison. The storylines seemed similar (someone gets offended and the main character has to deal with that and try to make up for it) and I just wasn't interested in the characters for the LOST-type flashbacks. I was interested in it because of Jenji Kohan but it felt like watching the more annoying aspects of Weeds without the more appealing stuff to balance it out.

    The show is only loosely based on the real Piper's experience anyway. I don't think we should necessarily applaud it moving closer to the "truth," especially since the change is because of Prepon's whims.

    Is that what it is? I haven't been paying much attention. Why is she leaving the show?
