Reassessing BBC America’s ‘Orphan Black’

Reassessing BBC America’s ‘Orphan Black’

Hard to believe it’s been only five weeks since I panned the series premiere of BBC America’s Orphan Black. I’m tempted to admit I was wrong, though technically I wasn’t. I described “a potentially interesting storyline mired in a quicksand of background and setting.” That was true. I was an editor for 16 years – still am, sort of – so clarity and continuity are very important to me. However, I also wrote: “I might...

Sci-Fi Cred: Restored!

Sci-Fi Cred: Restored!

I have been living a bit of a lie, and I am ready to admit to it. As much as a sci-fi nerd I cop to being, I always had to just smile and nod along whenever the subject of Doctor Who and Torchwood came up.  Nervous that my cover would be blown, I employed the usual tactics: smiling; ‘uh-huh-ing’; laughing when every one else did.

The most interesting thing, to me, about Reins of a Waterfall, is that we started, finally, to see the Joseph Adama who was hinted at in Battlestar Galactica.

Battlestar Galactica: The Plan

Before I share my thoughts about the telemovie, I have to say this: If you haven’t seen it yet and don’t want to be spoiled, click away NOW. Consider yourself warned. So the idea behind “The Plan,” ostensibly, was to tell the untold story of the Cylons. The plan they had when they attacked the Colonies in the miniseries. Problem is, The Plan itself boiled down to, “First thing we do, let’s kill all the...

More thoughts on Battlestar

More thoughts on Battlestar

A friend of mine finally finished watching Battlestar Galactica, thanks to his Netflix membership and wrote me to tell me how much he and his wife loved the ending – and asking me a couple of questions about the finale. I think about the finale often, I’ll admit, and I haven’t erased it off my DVR yet, though I haven’t watched it more than twice. I’ve gone back and forth from loving it to being disappointed in the...
