Now that Orange Is the New Black's second season has been out for about a month, we assume everyone has finished watching all 13 episodes at LEAST once. (And if you haven't, what have you been doing with your time?!)

So, for those of you who find yourselves once again in the summer doldrums, going through OITNB withdrawal, we pose a question: Did the show jump the shark in Season 2?

OITNB's Lorraine Toussaint: "Taystee Is Vee's Salvation"

While Season 1 left us on the edge of our seats wondering about the outcome of Piper (Taylor Schilling) and Pennsatucky's (Taryn Manning) epic fight, the biggest head-scratcher at the end of Season 2 is: How the hell didfour inmates manage to escape from Litchfield this season? And doesn't the (presumed) death of Vee (Lorraine Toussaint) in the finale tie up her story line a little too neatly?

There's still plenty to love about Orange, but upon an initial viewing, Season 2 doesn't seem to live up to the standard set by Season 1.

Do you agree? Did Orange Is the New Black experience a sophomore slump, or are you still in love with Litchfield? Vote in our poll!
