Turn: Washington’s Spies – Season 2

  Releasing from Anchor Bay today is the second season of the highly engaging AMC series, Turn: Washington’s Spies. Starring Jamie Bell as Abe Woodhull, the story this season is even more epic and expansive as the series explores the Culper spy ring during the American Revolution. The series is based on the historical non-fiction…

Black Swan (2010) – Darren Aronofsky

  The next recommendation from my viewing of Gold Diggers of 1933 in the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book, is less musical, but more behind the scenes of a production, and the lead’s gradual descent into madness, in Darren Aronofsky’s Black Swan. The beauty and sensuality of the ballet, Swan Lake, is…

The Orphan Black S03E10 – History Yet to be Written

  And just like that Season 3 of Orphan Black came to an end. Sure it aired on Saturday night, sure it’s Tuesday now. The Film Festival I was at kept me busy, but when free time allowed, I was wondering whether or not to watch it right away… I mean now that I have,…

Orphan Black S03E09 – Insolvent Phantom of Tomorrow

  Orphan Black continues to kick ass and take names, and last night was no exception, in fact, they continue to up the ante. Their usual pace of story-telling is breakneck, so I honestly don’t know what to call this one, the penultimate episode pf the season, as it literally left me gasping for breath!…

Orphan Black S03E08 – Ruthless in Purpose, and Insidious in Method

  Buckle up Clone Club! Here comes the terrifying run to the season finale!! And this episode definitely starts to ramp up the tension! Delphine (Evelyne Brochu) discovers another Leda clone in the form of a blonde beautician named Crystal (Tatiana Maslany). She seems like a bit of a flake, but may be smarter than she…

Orphan Black S03E07 – Community of Dreadful Fear and Hate

  Orphan Black continued its fantastic run last night on Space, giving us what may be the lightest episode to date, while still advancing the characters and storyline and ending with a painfully heartbreaking moment for Cosima (Tatiana Maslany). It’s a great episode that gives us almost time to catch our breath before plunging into the…

Orphan Black S03E06 – Certain Agony of the Battlefield

  Wow what a kick in the gut last night’s episode of Orphan Black was huh? The emotional punches and revelations just kept coming, and constantly stunned me over and over… Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) still being held in Dr. Coady’s (Kyra Harper) compound (which Mrs. S (Maria Doyle Kennedy) has learned is in Mexico) and…

Orphan Black s03e05 – Scarred by Many Past Frustrations

  Space continues to set the standard for must-see television with Orphan Black, and this week’s episode is a corker (though sadly both Alison (Tatiana Maslany) and Donnie (Kristian Bruun) are absent this week). Helena (Maslany) and her scorpion Pupok (also Maslany) learn they have a new neighbor in the compound they are being held…

What Sue’s Watching – Playing PVR Catch-up

  Last week saw a lot of epic television, but I’m going to try and focus on a few in particular this time – especially the ones that I inadvertently left out last post. Lost Girl – Tim usually writes the episode recaps, and while I thought of trying to write one for last week’s…

Lost Girl Set Visit

  It’s a dark and dreary day as Sue and I make our way across the cityscape of Toronto, heading to the west side so that we can plunge into the mysterious, and enchanting world of the Fae. Showcase has invited us to the set of Lost Girl! We’re very eager to have a look, as…

Lost Girl S04E07 – La Fae Epoque

  This week’s episode takes us inside the mind of Dyson (Kris Holden-Ried) as he is held by The Keeper (Christine Horne) and the Una Mens, not for his reaction at the end of last week’s episode, but for crimes of his past, murdering both human and Fae. Bo (Anna Silk) refuses to believe Dyson…
