One of cable’s quirkiest and coolest science fiction dramas returns this week! It’s time for the third season of Orphan Black (Saturday night on BBC America), and the deadly Castor clones are on the march — changing life forever for the girls of Project Leda.
Also this week: Felicity and the Atom visit Central City for an all-star team-up with The Flash (also guest starring The Walking Dead‘s Emily Kinney), while Team Arrow have to deal with a meta-human for a change. Heroes‘ Milo Ventimiglia guest stars as a serial killer on Gotham, and Game of Thrones finally visits the distant lands of Braavos and Dorne.
Over on Syfy Channel, fantasy shows Bitten and Lost Girl return to Syfy with their new seasons on Friday night.
We should also mention Daredevil, which last week made its splashdown on Netflix. The buzz is good so far on the street-level Marvel hero series, which will be followed by A.K.A. Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Iron Fist, and then the team-up miniseries The Defenders. Daredevil‘s entire first season of 13 episodes is streaming now!
