    Yesterday I found out that the first nine episodes of Orphan Black were all on demand on my cable provider. I sat down to watch the pilot figuring “eh, can’t hurt”, and I have since watched all nine episodes. Unbelievably great show. So addicting! Can’t wait ’til tonight’s finale.

    So glad The Killing is back. Can’t wait for Dexter and Under the Dome to start this month too, as I’m mostly out of TV shows to watch these days. Might give Orphan Black a try since everybody’s so hyped up about it.
