Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris
"You are a bloody wrecking ball. You are an exploding cigar," laments a confidante of the clones under siege in BBC America's thrillingly entertaining Orphan Black. She's also a bloody marvel, as Tatiana Maslany plays these diverse doppelgangers with astonishing range and surprising nuance. Scrappy street waif? Check. High-strung soccer mom? Check. Lesbian scientist-in-training? Check. Deranged Russian assassin? Why not. Beyond a provocative premise and blistering pace, Orphan Black is a terrific showcase for one of TV's great performances. Even when it threatens to look like a stunt, with one clone at another's throat in a smackdown or layering the subterfuge when one clone pretends to be another, this bonded-by-genetics sister act never feels forced or phony.
Diahann Carroll, Denzel Washington
Diahann Carroll and Denzel Washington are reviving A Raisin in the Sun on Broadway, the Associated Press reports.
Carroll will play matriarch Lena, and Washington will star as her son William. The play, which first debuted in 1959, follows the black family as they try to find a better life in a white neighborhood.

Anika Noni Rose and Taye Diggs
Sam's sister has arrived!
Corrine, played by Tony winner Anika Noni Rose, made a brief appearance in last week's episode when Sam (Taye Diggs) bailed her out of jail after she robbed a convenience store. First impressions aside, she's no common criminal, and despite what the promos lead you to believe, she's not just some drugged out, desperate woman. She's actually...
Julianna Margulies and Josh Charles
There really is no better or more satisfying drama on Sunday nights than CBS' delicious The Good Wife — and yes, I'm counting cable (even pay) in that equation, at least for now, while we're in between seasons of such dynamic signature shows as Homeland, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, etc. (Although PBS' Downton Abbey comes close as the quintessential TV great escape.) This is especially true this Sunday, as Good Wife delivers a pivotal and sensationally entertaining episode (9/8c) firing on all burners. There's suspense, humor, memorable and electrifying showdowns between many of the major characters, pretty much everything you want from a show at the top of its game.
First, weighing in on two cable movies, one of which thoroughly chilled me and another that left me cold.
The Good Wife
Spoiler Alert: The following reveals major plot points from Tuesday's episode of The Good Wife.
After months of brutal debates, nasty campaign flyers and tireless campaigning, The Good Wife 's race for state's attorney may finally have a frontrunner in Peter Florrick (Chris Noth).
The three-way race suddenly became a two-person fight in Tuesday's episode after Glenn Childs (Titus Welliver) stepped down. With the current officeholder, and Peter's biggest rival, out of the running, does this mean Florrick is a lock to win?

According to the series and its fictional political blog, Peter has been on the uptick with voters — especially young people — since he cursed during a political debate to protect Alicia's privacy (awww). Plus, last week's nannygate seems to have dented the once sterling armor of opponent Wendy Scott-Carr (Anika Noni Rose).
But what would Peter's win mean for the show? Alicia (Julianna Margulies) said she wants her husband to win -- she just doesn't "want to go back to the way things were." Translation: She wants to continue working, which would...

The Good Wife's second season has featured a twisted love triangle, a heated political campaign and a surprising in-house fight for the firm. But the show is just getting warmed up.
Co-creator and executive producer Robert King spoke with reporters at the Television Critics Association's winter previews Friday about what's coming up for the second half the season (the election! A big Kalinda revelation!) He also clued us in on what you can expect from the slate of upcoming guest stars, including a third appearance by Michael J. Fox and new information on...
