Orphan Black

8 posts in this topic

It is a BBC show that is available on Amazon Prime. The show is about a young lady, Sarah, who sees someone who looks just like her commit suicide. Sarah, being a bit of con artist/small time crook (drug dealer), snatches the dead look-alike's purse. She injects herself into the dead doppelgangers life in order to clear out her bank account but she soon gets caught up in that life and the fact that the twin isn't the only one. There are a lot of them as they are clones and someone is trying to kill them all. This turns into a suspense/thriller that really delivers. It is a great combination of drama, suspense, and action that leaves nary a dull moment to be had. I'm only 4 shows into it but it is really worth it.

I watched the first season of it last year. I think it's a really good show.

Finished up the second season which was a bit slower but finished with a bang. Not as good as the first season but still worth the ride.

The third season was much better than the second. The sixth episode was one of the best of the series. One problem this show is having troubles with is what to do with one of the characters, namely Allison. Her story has turned into a side show which is laughably bad. They need to do something more interesting with this character.

I just finished season 1. Great show. Really impressive acting performances by Tatiana Maslany

Just started up season 4. The flashbacks are a bit confusing but the plot is more intriguing. It has the frenetic feel of the 1st season.

Until recently I thought Tatiana Maslany was British.

 

She does the British accent so well.

 

Apparently she grew up in Canada. Really impressive actress. She carries the show

In all fairness, she plays most of the characters. :)
