Captain America: Civil War Review

WARNING: Article may contain minor spoilers Captain America: Civil War has the action we like to see in the Marvel movies and it also has some comedic times.

No Gods, No Parents – Adoption in Orphan Black

In the second episode of Orphan Black‘s fourth season, “Transgressive Border Crossing”, there is a small but important side story happening with Sara’s brother – secondary character Felix – on an often-avoided subject that I am thankful to see become a plot point. If you’re not familiar with the show, Orphan Black is present-day sci-fi, where several of the main ...
