Thank you, Jesus–Pennsatucky told me to say that–the ladies of Litchfield are back! Netflix has released Season 4 of prison dramedy Orange is the New Black. With regular shows the rules are simple, just turn on the TV and watch, but this is a binge show that requires stamina and savvy. Here’s what to do:
In the fourth season premiere of Bates Motel, Norman’s missing and Norma Louise is beside herself. Dylan joins Will at the hospital, waiting for news on Emma. Norma Louise is full of surprises for Sheriff Romero.
Abby pushed her way to center stage at a party honoring Phoebe and was a boozy mess at Delia’s bachelorette party. It got so bad, Abby rushed the stage and started peeling off her clothes. Sabotaging festivities is a Real Housewife staple.
Now, with the recent death of Eagles guitarist Glenn Frey, there’s been a ton of tribute stories and videos. If you’re a person of a certain age, ahem, you’ve likely heard more versions of Hotel California than you’d like to admit. And the song has been covered by tons of artists and sold millions of copies.
Hazardous conditions aside, severe winter weather is fun in Gotham. It’s totes legit to stay in your pajamas and sip adult beverages—it’s not like you’re going to drive anywhere. Do you even have a license? Carbs and calories don’t count because of wormholes and fusion or something that sounds science-y. You might think this is a good time for a Netflix binge, but you can do that anytime. What you really need to do is channel-surf news coverage.
Lady Edith Crawley’s ward, Marigold, who was briefly raised by tenant farmers, Mr. and Mrs. Drewe, until Lady Edith took the child to live at Downton Abbey was recently kidnapped by Mrs. Drewe during a livestock competition. There has always been a cloud of mystery surrounding the child whom some believe to be the love child of Lady Edith and the late Michael Gregson. Little Marigold is shaken by the recent events and sat down with TV Recappers’ Delight to discuss the kidnapping.
The anthology’s creator and dapper narrator Rod Serling was a BAMF who took a dim view of jackasses. There are 156 episodes that ran from 1959 to 1964 and most—if not all—of them warned against jackassery. Serling gave side-eye to nags, complainers, conformists, egomaniacs, bigots and being boring, overbearing or unadventurous.
While quite a number of your favorite shows may be taking time off this week the hard-working folks on Gotham certainly ain’t. In fact, not only are they not taking a break they are going all full-tilt gonzo to ratchet up the drama.
