Orphan Black S02E06 – To Hound Nature in Her Wanderings

This week’s episode of Orphan Black continued to up the ante, and still leaves me reeling as to how this show can continue to be amazing week to week, and not falter once… It was a lot of fun this week to be able to spend more time with Helena (Tatiana Maslany) again this week….

In an interesting, and highly enjoyable episode, we get to spend more time with Helena (Tatiana Maslany) this week, as the clones react to the pressure that Rachel is starting to exert on Cosima, to bring Sarah to heel, and of course, turn over little Kira (Skyler Wexler).

An Italian Straw Hat (1928) – Rene Clair

  The Great Movies – 100 Years of Film brings me the next recommendation from The General. This time, it’s a light-hearted affair with running gags, a gentle sense of humor, and a happy ending for almost all involved.

It’s hard writing reviews for this show each week, because one runs out of ways to describe Tatiana Maslany’s stellar performances.

In the season’s penultimate episode Alex Levine’s script puts Graeme Manson’s and John Fawcett’s…
