Weekend TV: Orphan Black, Salem, Lifetime Making Whoopi

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.

Weekend TV in Review: Good Wife, Luck, Spartacus, Hallmark's Moon

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.

The Good Wife Election: Do We Have a Winner?

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... read more
