Here’s what’s up in the world of television for Friday, July 21, and Saturday, July 22. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Orphan Black (BBC America, Saturday, 10 p.m.): The final season of this outstanding sci-fi drama is on the home stretch now, but the cloning process could be starting anew. In tonight’s episode, “Gag Or Throttle,” Cosima (Tatiana Maslany) learns of Rachel’s (Tatiana Maslany) betrayal, and the Dyad’s plans to harvest Kira’s (Skyler Wexler) eggs. Lisa Weidenfeld will help keep the clones—and villains—straight.


Regular coverage

Friends From College (Netflix)
TV Club Classic: Gilmore Girls

Wild card

Risk (Showtime, Saturday, 9 p.m. ET): Showtime picked up this WikiLeaks documentary, from director Laura Poitras (Citizenfour), after it debuted at Cannes. Despite having already spent six years of her life making the film, Poitras has updated it ahead of its TV premiere to include a look at the 2016 presidential campaign and the role Wikileaks had in it. May we suggest dusting off the old “But her emails!” for your live tweeting of Risk?
