“Mingling Its Own Nature with It” featured very few lighthearted moments. Shit’s getting real folks. Where season one introduced us to the women, season two is delving deeper into the worsening psychological effects of realizing you’re a clone.
This episode Orphan Black gave us more insight into the science-obsessed new sect of Proletheans that have captured Helena. While Alison deals with the aftermath of Aynsley's death, Cosima falls deeper down the Dyad Institute rabbit hole, and Sarah enlists Art's help to find Kira, but is shocked as to where the trail leads. Shenanigans ensue.
The season two premiere of Orphan Black picks up seconds after Sarah discovered her house had been ransacked and her daughter Kira and Mrs. S. had gone missing. We find our main girl running for dear life in the rain, trying desperately to evade an enemy that at the moment could be the police, the Neolutionists, or the Proletheans.
Being a fan of Orphan Black is difficult. On top of trying to convert all of your friends to this amazing TV show, you also have the added burden of trying to keep up with all of the insanity the show throws at you. So before our first recap on April 19th, let's take a look at what we've learned about our Tatiana Maslanys last season!
On this episode we review Captain America: The Winter Soldier starring Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson and Scarlett Johansson with guest Bizarre Comics' Kris Johnson. We also talk with Meaghan Rath of SyFy’s Being Human about the end of the series.
Hey fellow Dorks! I’ve been getting a lot of messages from community-minded Dork Shelfers who want to share their exciting new comics, upcoming events, and crowd-funding campaigns with the world. Here’s my round-up of the most exciting goodies for June 2013!
Orphan Black is a slick, sexy new sci-fi thriller premiering this Saturday on the Space network. The pilot episode is engaging, tense, and deftly paced, electing to merely hint at the series’ genetic bio-conspiracy underpinnings in favour of establishing character and atmosphere.
For those of you relaxing in Toronto this fine Victoria Day Weekend we've got passes to see your two favourite InnerSPACE hosts at Comedy Bar's Sunday Night Live this Sunday, May 20th at 9pm. You've seen Teddy Wilson and Ajay Fry hosting on the SPACE network, now see them join the Sketchersons to host one of the longest-running sketch comedy shows in Toronto.
The last time we heard from our favourite Gallifreyan and his time-traveling companions, Amy Pond had given birth to a baby girl named Melody. She and her baby had been held against their will by the Clerics, an organization led by Madame Kovarian intent on using Melody as a weapon. Ten thousand light-years away, the Doctor and the Last Centurion assembled an army to recover the female Ponds. Unfortunately, nothing went to plan and a lot of people died.
Spoiler Warning: "The Rebel Flesh" (6.5) and "The Almost People" (6.6). Also, I wouldn't read any further into this post unless you've watched the entirety of "A Good Man Goes To War" (6.7) right to the very end. I mean to the last second. You've been warned, alright? Spoilers.
I knew going into "The Rebel Flesh" and "The Almost People" that I wasn't going to like these episodes at all. After watching the trailer for this two-parter, the episodes immediately felt like the dismal Silurian two-parter in Series Five - "Cold Blood" and "The Hungry Earth". Both two-installment stories deal with representations of humanity and a war between humans and their human-like counterparts (now enemies).
As I said in my review, the first episode of Doctor Who Series Six —"The Impossible Astronaut" — was filled with elaborate narrative arcs and characters on the brink of disaster. The second part to this two-parter serial — "Day of the Moon" — does nothing in the way of answering questions or alleviating any of the tension introduced in the previous episode.
In the previous series, Steven Moffat hit the ground running, creating one of the most entertaining collections of episodes in Doctor Who history. With the eleventh incarnation of The Doctor garnering an impressive amount of critical praise and fan approval, its understandable that Moffat's sophomore effort is one of the most highly-anticipated television shows of the year.
The new season of Doctor Who begins in a little over two weeks on April 23. I don't think I've quivered with this much anticipation since the new series began five or so years ago. I went into the last season with mixed feelings. I had full confidence in new head writer Stephen Moffat, but was worried about the loss of David Tennant. All I can say now is, David who (yes, pun intended)?
Following last week's epic show with our guest Teddy Wilson, co-host of InnerSPACE on the SPACE channel, we present to you the stunning conclusion! This week we find out what Gavin really thought of The Wrestler, twist endings, talk more about the inner workings of popular media and quiz each other on hyper-nerdy trivia, all of which makes for an entertaining show.
