Gilbert Speaks on “Midnight Texas” S01 E04

16 Aug


I am enjoying this first season of “Midnight Texas” It is horror done lightly, definitely not the equal of True Blood, but a close cousin to Grim, a supernatural show that made watching horror fun again. A supernatural creature munches her way into town, and while Team Manfred scrambles to stop her, Olivia deals with Daddy issues. Continue reading

Gilbert Speaks On the Series Finale of “Orphan Black”

13 Aug

S and W

I don’t know what to say about this being the last time I’ll see the clone club together on “Orphan Black.” I do know that I hate saying goodbye to people who shine in a world gone mad. Tatiana Maslany did the impossible. This tiny girl was able to create, with the help of a great cast and crew, a family of unique and wacky sisters. Tatiana was absolutely magical at weaving into existence: Helena, Sarah, Cosima, Alison, Rachel, Krystal, and all the clones that walked into our lives over the last five years.

How many times did we need to remind ourselves that there was only one actress playing all the clones? The show ends as it begins. Sarah has to save the day because Helena is about to have her babies. Will the series end on a happy note?  Continue reading

I have been doing reviews on “Orphan Black” since it first premiered on BBC America. The clones have become like family to me. I know the show is all about Tatiana, and her excellent portrayal of multiple entities, but the different clones all feel real and separate to me. It’s crazy…right? On episode 09, Sarah and the gang must rescue Helena before she has her babies. Will the Clone Club succeed? Continue reading
