Orphan Black “Insolvent Phantom of Tomorrow”

Ok, I did NOT see that one coming. The recap for this week is a little late because I needed a day or two to absorb all the fastballs Orphan Black lobbed at us this week. Let’s see: the reveal of the real Castor mole, a lot of dead bodies, […]

Orphan Black “Ruthless in Purpose and Insidious in Method”

There’s just no trust anymore. Basically that’s what we learned in “Ruthless in Purpose and Insidious in Method,” where everyone was playing a double agent role and everyone ended up getting screwed. All except for Krystal Goderitch, the latest Leda clone who is unaware of the conspiracy swirling around her. […]

Orphan Black “Formalized, Complex and Costly”

They should have really titled the new episode of Orphan Black as “GASP.” That’s pretty much all I did while watching. Some juicy gasps, some hilarious gasps and some heart-breaking ones. If there’s a take-away from the new episode, I’d call it: Beware the Proletheans.

Orphan Black “Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis”

Orphan Black has always excelled at pulling back the layers of story a shred at a time and “Transitory Sacrifices of Crisis” is no exception. The latest episode tangled some interesting tidbits about the Castor clones and we learned exactly how different the two strands of clones really are.

Orphan Black “The Weight of this Combination”

Welcome back, Clone Club! Orphan Black kicked off season three by dropping viewers right into the middle of the deep end. Sink or swim, newcomers, because there’s a lot going on and little time to catch up. For a (brief) review: Sarah Manning and her “sisters” are clones owned by […]
