Orphan Black ends season 4 with “From Dancing Mice to Psychopaths.” We didn’t see any dancing mice. We saw one very welcome face and one hugely dangerous psychopath. Spoilers everywhere in this recap.

For the first 3 seasons of Orange is the New Black, two of our favorite characters are obviously mentally ill. At the end of season 3, two more mentally ill inmates join the cast. None of these women belong in a prison. The alternative provided, called…

Lotus Dragon is an excellent place to learn Tai Chi and other traditional Chinese martial arts. The teacher, Master Dug Corpolongo, has a great deal of experience and has achieved a very high level in the field of martial arts. His teaching style is laid back and gentle. He works effectively with everyone from the rankest of beginners to students with many years experience.
