Hit Me with Your Best Shot: Orange is the New Black Season 2
Note: mild season 2 spoilers
Today’s entry for The Film Experience’s Hit Me With Your Best Shot series is about the awesome show, Orange is the New Black, instead of a movie. I’m sure that there are many moments that I could have chosen from. Some may have been more deep or more important but I just fucking love this shot!
At this point in season 2, we are watching Red and Nicky discuss Red’s troubles. This is about 2/3 of the way through the season and Pornstache is finally back! or as he himself says, “Mendez is back, bitches”. Pornstache is truly the type of character that one loves to hate. Plus he’s not only a jerk but also pathetic.
For me, this scene is so perfect because it’s not only fab for those of us who are addicted to OITNB. I feel like someone could sit down, see this scene and totally get Pablo Schreiber’s character within a minute. He’s a douchebag with a job that gives him too much control over others.
Yes, the reintroduction of his character is actually used to spur the plot forward so he’s not just needlessly there but aside from that it’s just so fun.
I’d also totally love to do a collage of Natasha Lyonne as Nicky going down or getting eaten out by other girls from this season. She’s fantastic.
You can stream seasons 1 and 2 of Orange is the New Black here on Netflix.
