Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “The Jimmy Jab Games” Review

After an Emmy-winning first season, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” has returned with a second season that to date has been hilarious and just as good as its first. Since school started so late, we’ll be starting...

“Community: Geothermal Escapism” Review

If you played Hot Lava as a kid, where you stood on various pieces of furniture to keep from touching the now lava-covered floor, then you’ll understand what “Geothermal Escapism” is all about. On...

“The Flash: Family of Rogues”

The second season of CW’s “The Flash” opened up with a bang and introduced many new possibilities for the show and its universe. But with that said, the thrilling narrative of Jay Garrick, Zoom...

One thing I’ve wanted more of in “Orphan Black” is interaction between Helena and Sarah (both played by Tatiana Maslany). It was intriguing in season one that Helena, who had been killing clones, had...
