  1. Orphan Black Science Recap: “The Weight of This Combination”

    Science side of Tumblr, at your service.

    Welcome to our new Orphan Black science recaps, where Casey, a graduate student in genetics and developmental biology, and Nina, a professional science communicator, examine the science in each episode of OB and talk you through it in (mostly) easy-to-digest terms. If you haven’t watched the latest episode of Orphan Black, be forewarned: there will be spoilers. There will also be crazy science.

  2. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 67 & 68

    It’s a wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey kind of day in the Mooniverse.

    Okay, so I take back my earlier rant about how we’d have to wait 20 episodes to find out what’s going on with Chibiusa. The creative team didn’t string us along for very long at all, and we pretty much have all the gaps filled in at this point. Now all that’s left is for Usagi to take down the baddies, save the future, and rescue the Queen. Who is, um… herself. This probably won’t cause any gaping rifts in the space-time continuum. Probably.

  3. Agents of SHIELD Recap: “Frenemy of my Enemy”

    CAL <33333

    Here's my favorite thing about "Frenemy of my Enemy": it was both written and directed by women, Monica Owusu-Breen and Karen Gaviola, respectively. Do you know how rare that is in production? Super rare. All hail the television gods for that combo on this episode. More of that, please.

  4. Daredevil Recaps: “Rabbit in a Snowstorm” and “In the Blood”

    Daredevil episode 3 takes a bit of a break from the superhero stuff to remind us that Matt Murdock and co. are real people with a law practice to run. Please enjoy this episode of Law & Order: MCU.

  5. iZombie Recap: “Virtual Reality Bites”

    On tonight’s menu: hacking, snacking and lip-smacking.

    As you can probs tell from the title, this week’s episode, “Virtual Reality Bites,” is loosely gamer-themed as Liv tries to solve the murder of an infamous hacker and RPG player. On paper, this plot might sound kinda lame, but it works like a specialized charm spell on screen, especially as a couple of our fave characters get to geek out in the process.

  6. The X-Files Newbie Recap: “Shadows,” “Ghost in the Machine”

    This week, we have ghosts and HAL 9000, and Scully makes the same Poltergeist reference I did last week. Fab.

  9. Steven Universe Recap: “Shirt Club”

    In which this whole “airing episodes out of order” thing finally feels noticeable.

    Alright, turns out we had one more episode pushed back by the Steven Bomb (I think, according to Matt Burnett’s post – Google lists the next two episodes as being waylaid season 1 episodes as well, but let’s take that with a grain of salt). And while “Open Book” and “Story for Steven” straddled a line of “would’ve flowed really well here but work well as stand-alones,” today’s episode is pretty substantively hurt by where it ended up.

  10. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “Sozin’s Comet Parts 1-4″ AKA The Series Finale

    IT'S OVER D;

    Well. There was no Cabbage Man. But I’ll deal. I’m going to have to wait until near the end of this recap to freak out about Azula. But I’ll deal. Avatar is over. But I’ll deal.

  11. Sailor Moon Newbie Recap: Episodes 65 & 66

    Better late than never, no?

    It was a fun week, with some subtle plot bombs and slightly varied character dynamics—all good things, really—but in the interest of getting this out before the end of the week (I’m typing this during the, like, three-hour window between parties and chores), I’m going to unleash my little-used superpower: EXTREME BREVITY. Prepare yourself, Kakarot!

  13. Agents of SHIELD Recap: “Melinda”

    The Cavalry!

    In this week's episode of SHIELD, we finally learn about May's past and the whole "Cavalry" thing! And some other stuff happened too, I guess, but realistically the May business is all that I really cared about.

  17. Spaced Newbie Recap, “Epiphanies”

    Is there any song in existence as instantly feel good as “Come On Eileen” by the Dexy’s Midnight Runners? What a way to start the episode. Hell, what an episode in general. It doesn’t seem like much of a reach to say that the sixth episode “Epiphanies” is Spaced's finest installment to date.

  18. Steven Universe Recap: “Story for Steven”

    The first draft of this recap was done entirely in tearstained caps lock. Prepare accordingly.
