Orange is the New Black

Season two of "Orange is the New Black" was released today, and many are scrambling to binge on the entire season so they can avoid spoilers. As with all Netflix-produced shows, once a season is up, you can watch the entire thing all at once. It's a great feature if you want to watch the season at your leisure, without waiting week to week for new episodes; it's not-so-great when the internet ruins everything. A helpful reminder: when asking your friends if they've seen the new season, a simple "Have you watched the new 'Orange is the New Black' episodes yet?" will suffice. Don't say, "Oh my gosh, have you seen the episode where Piper dies?!" (BTW, Piper probably doesn't die.) It'll be tough navigating the internet spoiler-free for the next few weeks, so good luck out there.

But here are a few fun facts you may not have known about the successful film. (It should go without saying, but: major "Frozen" spoilers ahead.)

#1 - Rapunzel and Flynn Rider make an appearance at Elsa's coronation.

Blink and you'll miss it, but it's true. If you watch the crowd during Elsa coronation, you'll see both characters from "Tangled" (and yes, Rapunzel has her short, brown hair instead of the long, blond locks).

Like many Broadway greats before it, including Hairspray, Rent, and The Phantom of the Opera, the Tony-winning show Jersey Boys gets its own film adaptation. The movie, an adaptation by Clint Eastwood, follows the same basic premise of the show, chronicling the early-rock group the Four Seasons and their rise to fame.

The film stars John Lloyd Young, who won a Tony award for his role as Frankie Valli in the Broadway version, as well as Erich Bergen, Michael Lomenda and Vincent Piazza as the Four Seasons. Christopher Walkenwill play a mobster.
