Orphan Black: “Ease for Idle Millionaires” Review

(via denofgeek)

If two weeks ago was an Alison-centric episode, and last week was mostly-Sarah-plus-everyone-else, Cophine fans can rejoice this week. “Ease for Idle Millionaires” showcases Cosima working out just what’s going on behind the scenes at Camp Revival, and the answers are horrifying. The last few seasons of Orphan Black have been too complex for its own good; it’s hard for the un-obsessive viewer to keep track of all the plot threads. Luckily, this episode stays fairly straightforward in its reveal of P.T. Westmoreland’s nefarious plans, allowing more time to consider what they mean for Clone Club.

Teen Wolf: “Ouroboros” Review

teen-wolf-main-title-sequenceAnother Moonday has come and brings us one step closer to the halfway mark in Season 5—which, as I understand, will take a break between the first ten and last ten episodes, although it will remain one continuous story, unlike Season 3. And bringing us one step closer was pretty much all this episode did; this episode was primarily about inching us further along certain plot points, and wrapping up loose ends from last week’s episode. Thankfully, it was rather less dark than last week, even if a bit of body horror remained. Spoilers after the jump!

Teen Wolf: “Required Reading” Review

Teen-Wolf-Main-Title-SequenceWow, so much happened in last night’s episode, it’s hard to believe it was just forty-one minutes long. I kept checking the time, incredulous that it wasn’t over (and beginning to dread how I was gonna condense all of this into a review that wasn’t the size of a novel). Speaking of novels, this week continues with the book-themed title and explores the consequences of reading the Dread Doctors book by Dr. Valack. In short: sometimes reading can be bad for you. Millions of spoilers after the jump and trigger warnings for mental illness and self-harm.

Teen Wolf: “The Benefactor” Review

teen-wolf-season-4Huzzah, another episode of Teen Wolf’s awesome fourth season! After last week’s episode, I was all jazzed up for this week. This season as a whole has a feel that is a great mix of familiar and fresh, mixing the style and atmosphere of the first season with new characters and dilemmas. Unfortunately, while I wouldn’t call this episode slow-paced or actionless, I don’t think it had quite the energy of the other episodes this season, as pretty much nothing new was introduced—the plotlines were all extensions and elaborations on what had been set up in the previous episode. Without further ado, let’s dive into the latest adventures of this wacky crew.

Spoilers below the jump. Continue reading
