The Off-Broadway Play Marjorie Prime and Today's Technologies: Talking Robots That May Someday Keep Us Company (and Make Us Immortal Too)
The intelligently written and beautifully acted play Marjorie Prime by Jordan Harrison -- now on extended run at Playwrights Horizons in New York through January 24 -- is also very timely in the world of today's technology.

Though there was plenty of action in this week's "Nikita," the episode still felt a little akin to the calm before the storm, allowing us all to take a collective breath before delving headfirst into the final three episodes of the season.
It was a pleasure to see two such well-crafted episodes in a row, and it seems as though Michael's situation will create plenty of compelling conflict and character growth for a number of our characters over the next few episodes.

Even after a two-week break and a shift into a new (old) timeslot, "Nikita" didn't miss a beat with this week's stellar installment, proving that the creative team hasn't lost the magic formula that made Season 2 so epic.
Since things hit a bit of a lull with last week's solid but unspectacular "True Believer," it was great to see "Nikita" back on form with "Consequences," which started at sixty and only accelerated from there.
After two of "Nikita's" strongest episodes to date, it seemed inevitable that "True Believer" would feel a little flat in comparison -- mostly because this week's story was less intrinsically personal than "3.0" and "Innocence" were for our main characters.
This week's "Once Upon a Time" certainly fit in with the rest of ABC's Halloween fare, with an abundance of lightning and shambling monsters and creepy heart stealing -- but the end result left me a little cold.
"Innocence" achieved what all of the most successful "Nikita" installments do; blended nail-biting action with real emotional stakes, with a heady dose of humor and plenty of character development tossed in for good measure.
