Be sure to leave June 6 absolutely free. Netflix’s hit show Orange Is The New Black returns for another season of prison hijinks. I fully expect fans of the show to binge watch all 13 episodes of the addictive show in one seating with only minimal bathroom and snack breaks. I wish all shows did this. I hate waiting a week (sometimes more) for a new episode.

Taylor Schilling, Jason Biggs, Laura Prepon, Laverne Cox and Kate Mugrew all return with new addition Lorraine Toussaint as Yvonne “Vee” Parker joining in on the fun. As the trailer states, “This is like next-level crazy…” I can’t wait.

Find out what all your favorite female inmates at Litchfield prison have been up to since last year. Watch the trailer below.

For 25 years the GLAAD Media Awards have honored entertainment, journalism and individuals who exhibit outstanding images of the LGBT community.

Among the nominees this year include Dallas Buyers Club, Elton John, Orange Is The New Black, Lady Gaga, Geography Club and Pretty Little Liars. Given how homo-erotic Teen Wolf is, the MTV supernatural series received nada. The organization also puts the spotlight on online and traditional publications. Check out all the nominations below.

With all the attention focused on movies this time of year, I thought I’d give some loving to programs on the small screen. Truth be told, the American Film Institute’s picks for Top 10 best films are pretty much status quo with all the recent critics awards, The only exceptions being Leonardo DiCaprio’s The Wolf of Wall Street and Tom Hanks’ Saving Mr. Banks finally entering the Oscar race. I really didn’t feel like talking about another 12 Years A Slave win ;)

On the television side, the AFI made some room in their Top 10 for new blood. Orange Is The New Black, The Americans, Masters of Sex and Scandal were just a few first-timers who made the cut. Despite being the highest-rated of the three, American Horror Story: Coven was snubbed. Also noticeably absent were Girls, Homeland and Modern Family. All of which have been included on the list since their respective freshman year. Is this the beginning of the end for the Emmy-winning ABC sitcom’s winning streak?

Based on the AFI’s mandate, below are the ten outstanding films and 10 outstanding television programs deemed culturally and artistically representative of the year’s most significant achievements in the art of the moving image. See if you agree with their list.

Orange Is The New Black Available Now On Netflix

In: TV Shows

While it doesn’t come with as much fanfare as Arrested Development or House of Cards, Netflix’s new original series Orange Is The New Black is worth giving a shot. Not only is it winning critics over, but the on-demand Internet streaming media provider is so bullish on the dramedy that it ordered a second season even before premiering. That’s almost unheard of.

Orange Is The New Black is the brainchild of Weeds creator Jenji Kohan. It follows Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling), an upper-middle class bisexual woman who finds herself incarcerated for a crime she committed 10 years prior. It’s actually based on Piper Kerman’s memoir sharing her experiences serving a 14-month sentence in a women’s prison in 2004. While the main character is based on Kerman, the rest of the characters are fictional. Rounding out the cast are Jason Biggs, Kate Mulgrew, Laura Pepron and Natasha Lyonne.

If the trailer above piques your interest, all thirteen episodes of Orange Is The New Black are available online on Netflix beginning Thursday at 12 a.m. PDT.
