  • Print

Don't click through if you're behind on the Canadian sci-fi drama "Orphan Black," but show creators Graeme Manson and John Fawcett are sharing some details on how they crafted the twist in the season 2 finale.

Without spoiling it, Manson and Fawcett tell TVLine they plotted the surprise development back near the end of the show's first season with the intention of it really playing out in season 3.

While a third season of the critically acclaimed show hasn't been officially confirmed yet, Manson and Fawcett say they're already brainstorming on the next set of episodes.

New York magazine's Vulture blog has been recapping the last season of TV by highlighting the best to hit the small screen. They've named Amy Schumer the best female comedy performer, called the "Hannibal" season 2 finale the year's best episode, and crowned FX as the best network.

What do they say was the best comedy of the year? Not "Girls," or "Louie," or "Veep."

Surprisingly, they've picked the Fox cartoon "Bob's Burgers," which they say "like the late, great 'King of the Hill,' it truly is a sitcom that just happens to be drawn."

Vulture also has an interview with "Orange Is the New Black" star Lorraine Toussaint, a.k.a. drug queen-pin Vee, about her villainous role in the Netflix show's second season.

She talks about how she largely created the back story for Vee, why she changed her mind about going nude for the show, and whether viewers should question what they thought they saw in her final scene.

All caught up with "Game of Thrones" and can't wait until next year for new episodes?

Why not re-watch them with people who haven't seen season 4 yet, and haven't read George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" books?

That suggestion comes from the comic geniuses at CollegeHumor, whose latest viral video highlights why watching people watch "Game of Thrones" can be better than watching the show itself.
