“Daredevil” dares to challenge the superhero film

Netflix has solidified itself as one of the best generators of original programming, rivalling the likes of modern powerhouses like AMC and HBO. No longer must cord-cutters leave their rooms to join their family...

“Orphan Black: Governed by Sound Reason and True Religion” Review

I watched the first season of “Orphan Black” in reruns on BBC America, and while I didn’t know everything that was going to happen, I already knew a lot of things. I heard about...

“Community: Advanced Advanced Dungeons and Dragons” Review

“Orphan Black: Knowledge of Causes, And Secret Motion of Things” Review

If you’ve been reading these “Orphan Black” reviews carefully, it’s likely no secret that of the clones, I’m the most interested in Alison (Tatiana Maslany). I’m not sure why that is exactly, but I...
