During the coronavirus pandemic, when most of us are staying at home, we’re going to spotlight products that you can enjoy from your couch, whether solo or in small groups, and leave out the rest. With that in mind, here are our picks for May 11-17, including the best deals we could find for each.
Maria Doyle Kennedy ('Orphan Black') and Ed Speleers ('Wolf Hall') have signed on for key roles for the fourth season of Starz's 'Outlander,' which began filming this week in Scotland.
It’s been exactly a month since members of the auxiliary Clone Club bid a tearful farewell to Orphan Black‘s core four sestras (as well as their 270 other siblings) on the cult show’s Aug. 12 series finale. The episode’s final shot revealed our clone heroine, Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany), looking around the home she had built for herself and her daughter, Kira, as well as looking forward to the freedom she had fought so hard to achieve. Catching up with the Emmy-winning actress at the Toronto International Film Festival — where her new film Stronger, in which she stars opposite Jake Gyllenhaal, had its world premiere — Maslany remembers the final shot being far less consequential.
As the saying goes, two heads are better than one, so twins on TV shows means double the fun. At least, some of the time; other times, it’s more like that quote from Macbeth — “double double, toil and trouble.”

Warning: This post contains spoilers for the “Manacled Slim Wrists” episode of Orphan Black. Orphan Black‘s final season body count continues to climb as Susan Duncan joins her clone children Januz and M.K. in the show’s graveyard. The elderly matriarch of the Leda line has stared the Grim Reaper in the face before, must notably following Rachel’s insurrection last season, but this time the hooded figure appears to have claimed his prize, aided and abetted by Virginia Coady and P.T. Westmoreland.
Warning: This reap of the “Let the Children & the Childbearers Toil” episode of Orphan Black contains spoilers. After last week’s turn into Alison and Donnie’s suburban cul-de-sac, complete with highland dancing, Orphan Black got back on the main artery of its conspiracy-centric narrative in “Let the Children & the Childbearers Toil.” And while it was an eventful episode in terms of incident, there was also a slight lack of forward momentum for the characters or overarching story in this hour.
It's taken five seasons, but Alison is finally realizing how much she's been shortchanged. "Beneath Her Feet," then, becomes her declaration of independence.
