What Red Thought Of New “Orange/Black”

Having watched the entire new season of “Orange Is The New Black,” I can say with confidence that the series suffers from a common season-3 problem: no fun. Most of the liveliness that coursed through the first two seasons of this women’s-prison drama went dribbling away this time. The first few of the 13 episodes carried some spark, especially from the big-gal characters of Taste and Cindy. But plot arcs got way too serious, with the little meth-head character dominating precious airtime — yuk! Still, I found solace, as always, in Kate Mulgrew (pictured), as Red. Here, she tells us what it’s like to binge-watch a whole season at home (she’s my neighbor) just like the rest of us mortals do.
