Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 8 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterToday Serial Box released the eighth episode of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter. The episode is titled “A Harvest of Survivors” and was written by Madeline Ashby.

Once I started it, I quickly realized that this was the episode I had been waiting for. It was so great to have Vivi meet the other clones in person and see everyone’s reactions. I was surprised Sarah took to her fairly quickly.

Maslany was, as always, brilliant in her reading, bringing all the characters to life. It’s easy to differentiate between clones by her voice, even without being able to see them.

Speaking of seeing them, there are so many wonderful scenes in this episode that I would love to be able to see on television. I can so easily envision Alison and Donnie in the sex club, which was so funny to hear about. All of the characters in the book continue to feel so much like the originals.

While the main part of the episode was dealing with the clones’ next step, another important part was, of course, Rachel’s meeting with Davis. I enjoyed her cunning, but was surprised and somewhat confused by her reaction to not wanting him to hurt Kira. I feel like there must be some story there that as a viewer (and reader) we haven’t been privy to that must have taken place between the series and the book. This ended up being the most intriguing part to me, because it was so unexpected.

Review: His Dark Materials - The Spies - 1.03

***Contains Spoilers***

His Dark MaterialsTonight, HBO premiered the third episode of His Dark Materials, titled “The Spies.” In the episode, Lyra (Dafne Keen) is rescued from the Gobblers by the Gyptians, who hope to interrogate her kidnapper as they continue to look for the children.

Meanwhile, Coulter (Ruth Wilson) visits Dr. Carne (Clarke Peters) for information, who although revealing he gave Lyra the alethiometer, won’t help Coulter locate her. After tearing the place apart for anything heretical, she and Boreal (Ariyon Bakare) extend their search.

Lyra agrees to stay with the Gyptians, but she only brings more trouble when magisterium officers are dispatched, and she has to hide. Not everyone is happy with harboring her, but eventually everyone is on the same page.

More secrets are revealed to Lyra, who also gains knowledge of the alethiometer, but it only brings unpleasant news when things go bad for the Gyptians.

Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 7 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterToday, Serial Box released an all-new episode of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter, titled “Best Learn to Cope,” written by Lindsay Smith. After so much happened in the last episode, I was excited to know what would come next, probably the most about what would happen to Kira and Em. While there weren't as many revelations in this episode as some of the previous ones, there was a fair bit of action, and a good chunk of it was with the two girls. Kira really stepped up and made her own decisions about what she was willing to risk, which I appreciate. I also enjoyed getting to see someone new be brought into Clone Club in the way she told Em. She definitely had a different reaction than most people do. Their friendship and trust is becoming more important as the story goes on. I’m also interested in seeing if Sauveteer survives the trip to the hospital.

The other big section of the episode was Vivi trying to retrieve Cosima. I’m not sure she was doing it just to save her, as she had things to gain, but her impromptu mission with Jay was fun to see go down, and of course Vivi kicking ass is always entertaining. Her interactions with Jay on the earbud were also amusing.

Probably the main revelation we did get in the episode, however, is that the swarms of bugs, which seem to be the delivery system of the viruses, aren’t actually insects at all, but rather drones. However, I didn’t find that to be much of a surprise. It’s also obviously confirmed that Sauveteer and the clones in Boston were both attacked by the same people. There’s also the idea that Dana, or whichever clone first contracted the sickness, was originally bitten, since they both have a similar rash.

Blu-ray Review: Good Boys is Full of Laughs - Out Now

Good BoysGood Boys is comedy that follows a trio of sixth grade boys, self-dubbed “The Beanbag Boys,” in their adventures. Max (Jacob Tremblay), who seems the most eager to grow up, thinks he’s in love with his classmate Brixlee (Millie Davis). Thor (Brady Noon) loves to sing and dreams of leading the school musical, Rock of Ages, until he’s teased by the popular kids. Lucas (Keith Williams) just wants his parents to stay together.

When Max is invited by a popular boy (Izaac Wang) to a “kissing party” where Brixlee will be, he desperately wants to learn how to kiss. At his friends’ insistence he decides to borrow his father (Will Forte)’s drone, which he’s been specifically told not to, to spy on his teenage neighbor Hannah (Molly Gordon) in the hope of seeing her and her boyfriend (Josh Caras) lock lips. What they get is a lot more than they bargained for when she and her friend Lily (Midori Francis) take the drone and won’t give it back.

In retaliation, the boys steal one of the girl’s purses and the girls give chase. In the interim the drone is destroyed and the boys skip school to somehow get a replacement before Max’s father returns home.

What follows is a quest involving accidentally stolen drugs and a bunch of wacky mishaps and bad language as they head to the mall while running from the girls.

His Dark MaterialsTonight, His Dark Materials returned for an all-new second episode, “The Idea of North.” In the episode, Lyra (Dafne Keen) arrives in London to assist Mrs. Coulter (Ruth Wilson), who has agreed to send her people out to look for Roger (Lewin Lloyd).

Lyra learns that neither Mrs. Coulter nor her daemon are quite what they seem. More is revealed as the Gyptians continue to look for the Gobblers and the missing children, and it seems something much larger is at play. It’s all interconnected, and the Magisterium’s control may be even farther reaching than expected.

Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 6 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterThe hiatus over, today Serial Box releases episode six of the audio series Orphan Black: Next Chapter, narrated by Tatiana Maslany. The episode is titled “What a Living World Will Demand” and written by Heli Kennedy.

I was so excited for the series to be back after the cliffhanger from episode five, and thankfully the episode was fantastic. Performance-wise, this episode was definitely one of my favorites, because Maslany vocally performs as quite a few clones in this episode, including not only the addition of Helena and Krystal, but also more clones we’ve never encountered before. Felix also makes an appearance, which was a nice surprise.

The episode is a trip, as there is a lot going on simultaneously, which I loved. In one storyline you have Charlotte, who is still quite sick, and Alison, who want to come back home, and in another you have Sarah and Delphine who are stuck at the house after having been accosted by the press. Everything is crazy now that news of clones is out. Not everyone is happy with the revelation either, and clones are being attacked.

Advance Preview: His Dark Materials Brings Pullman's Rich Fantasy World to Life

His Dark MaterialsTomorrow night the awaited series, His Dark Materials, premieres on HBO. The series is based on Philip Pullman’s award-winning book trilogy of the same name. The first season will cover the first novel. The world of the show is similar to our own in some ways, but also very different. In some ways their technology is more advanced than in ours, but in other ways they fall behind. The biggest difference, however, is that in the world of the series, humans live with daemons, but not the kind you’re used to. Daemons are the manifestation of the soul outside of the body as an animal, and every person has one. They talk and can change into any kind of animal, but when a child reaches puberty, they settle on their form, reflecting the person’s true nature.

At the beginning of the series Lord Asriel (James McAvoy) brings a baby to Jordan College, invoking Scholastic Sanctuary and giving her to the Master of the college, Dr. Carne (Clarke Peters), who will keep her safe.

Lyra (Dafne Keen) grows up at the college with her daemon, Pan, and befriends another orphan, Roger (Lewin Lloyd), and together they go on mischievous adventures.

Orphan Black: The Next Chapter - Episode 5 Review & Recap

***Contains Spoilers***

Orphan Black: The Next ChapterToday Serial Box released the fifth episode of Orphan Black: The Next Chapter, titled “Every Child is Cast from Paradise,” by Madeline Ashby.

This week’s episode is mostly about the characters trying to get information from each other. I’m happy to finally see Sarah and Delphine talking to Vivi, even if they haven’t really uncovered much yet. Not only that, but it looks like Art may finally have to let Jay in on Clone Club. I was curious if he could make up some kind of cover story on the fly that was believable, but it seems like it is going the other direction. I do feel that he can trust her, however. It is fun though to see someone else like he was back in the first season of the series, confused that nothing adds up. Also, how far will he go to get Cosima back?

As a side note, Sarah realizing right away that it was Vivi pretending to be Cosima and tricking her was great, as was the information about the musical security system Cosima and Delphine have set up. Even if it wasn’t really important to the story, it was still entertaining.
