Orphan Black Season 2

.FULL..REVIEW.

The show suggests neither science nor religion is pure, and life is only about family. In this season, the clones stop calling each other clones and start calling each other sisters. When it’s “only clones allowed,” Felix says that includes him, not because he’s a clone of any kind, but because he’s their brother. Helena, despite being scrambled in the brain, pan has been accepted into their family, and they even have a dance party–Sarah, Helena, Cosima, Alison, Felix, and Kira.

revenge of the mekons

Revenge of the Mekons

.FULL..REVIEW.

The Mekons were a social group well before they were a band, and even when they were a band, none of them really knew how to play their instruments. They haven’t always had the best luck, though. Their art gallery exhibit crashed when the people in charge got fired. Their Curse of the Mekons record wasn’t published because the whole recording team got fired, despite the fact that a wizard had written a protective curse on the jacket (I wish I could say I’m making that up). Eventually, the punk scene got too violent to play in in England. Here’s where the revenge element of Revenge of the Mekons comes in. No matter the hurdles, the Mekons never dies. When they couldn’t play England anymore, they moved here to America!

The name's Pond. Jaime Pond.


Anglonerd magazine is a site for Americans who love nerdy British television and British (and Irish) comedy. You'll find where to get those hard to track down TV shows, British comedians touring the States, American release dates of British films, British TV on American networks, and much more. Anglonerd is more reviews, recommendations, cartoons, and exclusive interviews than it is about entertainment news, but do check out our Facebook and Twitter pages for up-to-the-minute (all right, week) news because we like to repost/retweet others' news stories. And by "we," I mean me.

Hi, I'm Jaime Pond, New York anglophile and nerd. Have a question? Email me at anglonerd@gmail.com.

PRESS


Another blog by an American (honestly, do us Brits write any of our own TV blogs?), but this time without the infectious, and adorable, enthusiasm. Instead, Anglonerd offers a variety of insights into the bits of British TV that most Americans won’t have heard of, with a bit of a focus on comedy. If you want your British TV knowledge to go further than Doctor Who and Downton Abbey, then Anglonerd is for you, with great write ups of comedians’ and actors’ careers, illustrations of panel comedy shows, and the odd reviews and features.
