Quotes of the Week: July 23-August 5

These are my favorite quotes from the past two weeks, mostly from shows currently on the air, but also other random things I happen to be watching.

Orphan Black
Felix: My sister and I are orphans, you see, and, um, we could’ve ended up anywhere. We could’ve ended up in any family. And if we had, we would’ve been entirely different people. But my mum, Siobhan, this woman, come on, this woman… This woman, she chose us as her own. We are who we are because she carried two little London urchins on her wings to Canada. Watching her raise my sister, watching my sister raise her own daughter, finding my biological sister… it’s quite mad. It’s taught me that we are all… mysterious works of chance. Of choice. Of nature versus nurture. So, to my galaxy of women, thank you for the nurture.

8 New Summer Shows…

I do not get any screeners ahead of time, and I know that not all of these new series will be winners, but I am interested enough to at least watch the first episode of each.

1. Still Star-Crossed, premieres May 29th on ABC, stars Grant Bowler, Wade Briggs, Torrance Coombs, Dan Hildebrand, Lashana Lynch, Ebonee Noel, Medalion Rahimi, Zuleikha Robinson, Sterling Sulieman, Susan Wooldridge, and Anthony Head. In the wake of Romeo and Juliet’s tragic deaths, the Montague and Capulet rivalry escalates. This has not gotten great reviews, and I have kind of given up on Shondaland shows in general, but I am going to give it a chance.



2. I’m Dying Up Here, premieres June 4th on Showtime, stars Melissa Leo, Ari Graynor, Al Madrigal, Clark Duke, Michael Angarano, RJ Cyler, Andrew Santino, and Erik Griffin. Based on William Knoedelseder’s book of the same name and set in the ’70s, this show is a behind-the-scenes look at a fictional group of stand-up comedians in Los Angeles. It looks fantastic, and I adore Ari Graynor, so I have been waiting for this since it was announced. Let’s hope it lives up to expectations.



3. GLOW, premieres June 23rd on Netflix, stars Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Ellen Wong, Britt Baron, Kimmy Gatewood, Rebekka Johnson, Sunita Mani, Laurie Francene Kinzer, Sydelle Noel, Gayle Rankin, Kia Stevens, Jackie Tohn, Britney Young, and Chris Lowell. Gorgeous. Ladies. Of. Wrestling. Enough said. I am all in.



4. Snowfall, premieres July 5th on FX, stars Damson Idris, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, Carter Hudson, and Emily Rios. A look at the early days of the crack cocaine epidemic in Los Angeles during the beginning of the 1980s. I do not know much about this cast, or about the show, but I trust the quality of FX Networks shows, and have been intrigued by the promos.
