  • Orphan Black 3×7 Review: Community of Dreadful Fear and Hate

    After the action and despair from last week, this week’s episode of Orphan Black provided a much needed break from the darkness. It ended up being very Hendrix-heavy, and we all know that whenever we see a lot of Alison and Donnie, there are sure to be laughs and misunderstandings. Even though we took a […]

  • Orphan Black 3×6 Review: Certain Agony of the Battlefield

    This show has always been intense, but this week they turned it up to 11.  I am genuinely surprised at some of the turns the story took this week, not to mention I’m unexpectedly emotionally distraught.  This show isn’t exactly Game of Thrones or Whedon levels of main character death, but death does happen.  Despite that, […]

  • Orphan Black 3×5 Review: Scarred by Many Past Frustrations

    This was a super sad episode, and it has left me with a lot of very melancholy feelings. All of the characters on Orphan Black are real and complex, and although we rarely get to see them happy, “Scarred by Many Past Frustrations” put into focus just how abnormal and sad their lives really are. […]

  • Orphan Black 3×4 Review: Newer Elements of Our Defense

    Projects Leda and Castor were even more intertwined than we initially thought, and with last week’s bombshell that all the clones are biologically brother and sister, the importance of them acting as family has never been more relevant. In fact this week, if it weren’t for the budding sibling relationship between Sarah and Mark, they […]

  • Orphan Black 3×3 Review: Formalized, Complex, and Costly

    Well, this week was just bombshell upon bombshell upon bombshell. There were so many twists and turns, and my head is still trying to wrap around everything. But we did get a lot of good pairings in this episode, and it was good to see so many relationships start or return. Although this is meant […]

  • Orphan Black: The Cast Talks Season 3 at C2E2

    Orphan Black completely dominated Chicago Comics & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) this weekend. Not only were we treated to four of the main cast members, BBC America brought along co-creator John Fawcett to talk all about our favorite sci-fi show. Indeed, in addition to the public panel, I had the chance to sit down separately with […]

  • Orphan Black 3×2 Review: Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis

    I enjoy Orphan Black immensely, but there are several plot lines this season that make me a bit weary. For a show that is so heavily female focused and feminist at its core, it’s strange to see forced pregnancy and sexual assault become major plot points for our central characters. Of course, it does give […]

  • Orphan Black 3×1 Review: The Weight of This Combination

    The clones are back and Orphan Black is more intense than ever.  The repercussions from last season are still fresh and causing problems for our favorite Leda clones, but they don’t have much time to linger on these issues because a new threat is encroaching on their lives at a rapid pace.  The male clones […]

  • FEELINGS Daily: Spoilers Are Coming to Game of Thrones!

    The Buzzfeed quiz I took while I was procrastinating writing this column told me that I’m witty. You’re super lucky that I decided to stop taking mindless online quizzes so I could tell you ALL the stuff that happened today. Hold onto your stylish yet affordable hats, fellow fangirls, because The Russo Brothers are definitely […]
