Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “Jake and Sophia” Review

This week’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” reminded me why in spite of my recent misgivings over the show’s seeming lack of interest in character development I ultimately trust these writers. “Jake and Sophia” could have been...

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “The Mole” Review

Truth be told, I didn’t want “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” to be too funny this week because I had a cold and it hurt to laugh, but I also didn’t want it to not be funny....

Brooklyn Nine-Nine: “Halloween II” Review

It’s strange to me that two things I consistently like — Halloween and “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” — just don’t seem to mix well together. Usually, I look forward to Halloween-themed episodes, but after “Halloween II,”...

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...

“Orphan Black: Things Which Have Never Yet Been Done” Review

“Orphan Black: To Hound Nature in Her Wanderings” Review

“To Hound Nature in Her Wanderings” opens on what was for me the best part of the episode — the Helena and Sarah (both played by Tatiana Maslany) road trip. I wouldn’t have complained...

“Orphan Black: Ipsa Scientia Potestas Est” Review

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...

“Orphan Black: Governed As It Were By Chance” Review

Unsurprisingly, “Governed As It Were By Chance” picks up right where the last episode left off — with Sarah (Tatiana Maslany) and Dyad lackey Daniel (Matthew Bennett) in a car crash. What is surprising,...
