  • Every Pop-Culture Reference Made In 'Orange Is The New Black' Season 2

    Amid all the rich character drama and humorous anecdotes that populate "Orange Is the New Black" is a cornucopia of pop-culture references. The Litchfield inmates are a well-read, well-watched group. They know their celebrity gossip even while behind bars, finding fodder for their conversations in everything from Fiona Apple to "Goodfellas" to "Toy Story."

    Many TV comedies ("Friends" comes to mind) are written as if their characters don't exist outside the confines of any individual episode's plot.
