Orphan Black Episode 2.6 Recap

Hidey-ho readeroonies! I hope you enjoyed Orphan Black’s season 2, episode 5, “Ipsa Scientia Potestas Est” (translation: “knowledge itself is power”), because otherwise this recap wherein I gush over the skillful storytelling is going to be weird. Don’t make it weird.

Orphan Black
Episode 1.1 Review

Best of 2010: TV

Despite what your grandma might say to try and trick you into watching reruns of Perry Mason, the true 'Golden Age' of television is right now and 2010 was an especially good year.
