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,…

The Newsroom – Season 3

  I have two big problems with The Newsroom Season 3 that releases today from HBO on blu-ray and DVD. The first is that this is the last season. Boo to that! The second, is that it is only 6 episodes long. Not enough! That being said, Aaron Sorkin’s brilliant drama goes out on a…

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 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 S03E03 – Formalized, Complex and Costly

  Orphan Black continues to wow, as episode 3 roared across screens last night on Space. The series continues to be filled with amazing character beats, that continue to layer them, expand them, and plunge them into new directions. Art (Kevin Hanchard) is still haunted by Beth’s (Tatiana Maslany) death, and his inability to do…

The Newsroom: Season 2

  HBO knows how much I love my Aaron Sorkin dramas, and were kind enough to let me catch up on a Season 2 blu-ray before the third and final season (sad sigh) is released in June. So this past weekend, I settled in to watch the 9 episode season, and relive all those fantastic…

Orphan Black S03E01 – The Weight of this Combination

  Get ready Clone Club, Sarah, Helena, Cosima, Rachel¬†and Alison (all Tatiana Maslany) are back tonight on Space! And just like last season, neither writers nor actors are willing to rest on their much-deserved laurels. Graeme Manson starts the season off by plunging us into an all new nightmare, and I didn’t realize until I…

Veep: Season 3

  Also available from HBO today, is the third season of their critically acclaimed, and award-winning White House comedy series, Veep. Julia Loius-Drefus, who has won an Emmy for her performance in each season, is Vice President Selina Meyer. And considering my love of the Sorkin series The West Wing, I should have been watching…

Canadian Screen Awards 2015: Nominees Reception

Sue and I had a great night last night at the Nominees Reception for this year’s Canadian Screen Awards, held at the lovely Ritz Carlton in downtown Toronto. So we thought we’d compile some of our pics from last night and share them with you here in a post… The red carpet photo call for…
