Below, TV critic Willa Paskin talks with culture critic June Thomas, senior editor David Haglund, and assistant editor L.V. Anderson about Season 2 of the Netflix series Orange Is the New Black. Is the show as good its second time out? Have the stakes been raised for Piper Chapman and the rest of the Litchfield crew?
