Everyone Should Go Into the Badlands

The other week I had pure freedom to loaf around, so I firmly planted myself on the couch and hit the Netflix hard. Luckily for me, Into the Badlands, a show that had caught my eye before, was finally available. I’d only seen trailers online before for this post-apocalyptic show (brought to us by AMC, continuing their move from movies to original programming like Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead). About two minutes in, I was hooked. I honestly can’t remember the last time I was quite this excited and engrossed by a new show, which is saying a lot. How is it awesome? In every way possible. Let’s take a look!

The storytelling this season has been on point and I’m excited to see where we go from here.

Last season the plot progressed into complication after complication, adding a whole new set of clones. With Season 4, it seems like we’re traveling back in time, down through the rabbit hole, back to the beginning. Two episodes in, it seems like a good choice. So what are Sarah, Alison, Cosima, Helena, and the lot up to?

Spoilers after the jump.

Orphan Black: “The Collapse of Nature” Review

Fortunately, compared to the previous seasons, the premiere of Orphan Black‘s Season 4 was extremely straightforward, making it a real pleasure to watch. Spoilers after the jump.
