Last week's Game of Thrones unleashed plenty of frozen horrors at "Hardhome," but the pendulum swung from ice to fire for "The Dance of Dragons." Not only did fire reign at Daenerys' predictably disastrous and tournament, but so too did flames bring us the series most gruesome, difficult scene to date. Our full review!
This week, Orphan Black finally reintegrates Alison and Donny’s sitcom with the rest of the plot — sure, that doesn’t seem like major news in the face of Crystal, the latest Leda clone, or that oh-my-god-are-you-serious Ocean’s 11 ending, but it is kind of a big deal. So far this season, Alison and Donny have remained on a suburban island, and if not for the two of them giving us pretty much the best, most insane Orphan Black scene of all time, I’d want to vote them off.
The most gorgeous, cinematic show on television is back — Hannibal’s Season 3 premiere is rife with sickeningly stunning shots and dripping with dread. “Antipasto” takes us on a trip to Italy to spend the entire hour with Hannibal and Bedelia, as the former dispenses with his “person suit” to give us a far more intimate — but no less formal — experience.
That old familiar standby of Community signing off has again arrived, perhaps a bit more under the radar than in previous years, but nonetheless completing the first half of its #SixSeasonsandaMovie pledge. Meta as ever, “Emotional Consequences of Broadcast Television” said a heartfelt goodbye to Season 6 as it envisioned a potential Season 7, but would fans (or Dan Harmon) even want it?
Tip to potential Bachelorette candidates: If you have any phobias, hide them from the show’s producers at all costs, unless you want to face them on national television.
Game of Thrones has never lacked complaints of characters teasing the imminent White Walker invasion without ever following through, but good grief if Sunday’s installment didn’t go full zombie apocalypse on Jon Snow and the Wildlings at “Hardhome.” Our full review of the epic battle, plus Tyrion and Daenerys’ budding friendship!
I do not understand why anyone goes on The Bachelorette.
Game of Thrones Season 5 has promised for months that the world of Westeros would contract, bringing more and more long-separated characters together. Tonight’s “The Gift” finally delivered on one of the biggest crossovers in Game of Thrones history, atop yet another shocking turn back in Kings’ Landing. Our full review!
There is so, so much going on in this week’s Orphan Black. So much much-ness. “Certain Agony of the Battlefield” is not only the most eventful episode of Season 3 thus far, but it’s an important episode which marks a turning point, as sides are chosen and Dr. Virginia Cody’s real aims are finally revealed.
