It is that good. Tatiana Maslany is amazing in the way she can portray 7 (?) different characters who often interact with each other at the same time. You really forget that it is the same actress doing each character.

In 25 years we'll get the big reveal. OB used a bunch of clones for the show.

Funny. That's what I thought the show would be but when I saw the description, I deleted it. Also funny that I think the opposite. So little happened compared to other shows of its kind, I don't need a recap.

I just recorded S01E10 last night and will watch it today before watching the season premiere to refresh my memory of where everything left off.

It gets better and better. And a review of S2 (no spoilers!) says there's no sophomore slump.

I just rewatched the last episode. And I recently began the series The Tudors. I was surprised to see Catherine of Argon as the foster mother. I hope she's in the new season.

'Orphan Black' - BBC America

I so enjoy this show. Cosima is my favorite because of her long locs, academics, and glasses -- we have these in common. I'm impressed by the way they've neatly blended in the dreads with her really straight hair but then they've done a good job with all of the hair styles.

Oh. My. God.

How did I miss this show? This is brilliant. I heard the actress was good and so I sought it out, based on a throwaway line from a ComicCon panel... found season 1 on Amazon Prime and just watched the whole thing. I am seriously hooked. This show is AWESOME.

I can't seem to find Season 2 on demand anywhere, including BBC America On Demand, which for some reason only has Episodes 1 and 8, and no others. Anybody know of a place to watch it? Otherwise I'm plunking down my money to buy it sight unseen, but if it's half as good as Season 1, it'll be worth it.

I was so blown away by the acting. There's a scene late in season one where she's dressed as Sarah, but you are watching and you know it's not Sarah, it's Helena disguised as Sarah, and realizing just how sophisticated that must be to play one of your characters pretending to be one of the others without actually just acting as Sarah.. wow. This woman should be a household name.

ETA: Season 2 purchased. Downloading now! When does Season 3 start?

You're usually on the ball, I agree HOW DID YOU MISS IT?


It's been fantastic, and while S02 isn't as jaw dropping amazing, it's still pretty impressive, I have 3 words for you that will make you smile at the end of season 2. (spoilering just to be extra extra careful, but not really a spoiler)

Spoiler:
Clone Dance Party

2015. Season 1 started in March, Season 2 in April. So somewhere in that ballpark, probably.

I almost envy you for getting to see it for the first time. Great show. She deserved an Emmy for each of her characters.

Yes, they run mostly concurrently.

Best few weeks of the year!

Powered through all of Season Two today. Didn't want to. Wanted to watch it over a bit of time and savor it. But I couldn't stop. Even when the clock passed midnight..

Not quite as in love with it as Season One, but still, really good show.

I just went on a work trip to the UK. I mentioned to several people that I was watching Orphan Black and they'd never heard of it. So even though BBC is involved I guess it isn't being shown over there.

It's a BBC America original, and I think it's a co-production with a Canadian network.

Yes, with Space (which is Canada's correctly-spelled equivalent of Syfy).

As Devdog says, it's not from the BBC, BBCA and Space in CA did it together, BBC3 picked it up afterwards.

Copper was also a BBCA original with no UK involvement
