I don't get it. The clones are not roommates or living in the same apartment building. I didn't notice any cast crossovers. Why is this funny?

Different strokes and all, I thought it was one of the best remixed credits I've ever seen, much like when they did the new BSG in 1970's Dallas style.

'Due South', 'Flashpoint', 'Rookie Blue'....no Americans I know are complaining about the quality. For that matter, 'Being Erica' also got picked up and did well in its market. Sarah Polley doesn't seem to do badly producing in Toronto, nor did Rob Marshall with his Oscar-winning 'Chicago'

are you sure this isn't a Senators-Leafs thing?

Reminder, Season 2 starts April 19th. There's a special on the 12th with the description

Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris, Dylan Bruce and Evelyne Brochu reflect on the first season of "Orphan Black."

My Season Pass picked it up, but you might want to check to make sure.

I'd like to re-watch Season 1, but doubt I'll have time.

I still need to watch the last ep of season 1. I Benge watched all the others but didn't watch the last ep.

Kind of like saving your last cigarette I guess.

I missed this one out of the gate, but thanks to Amazon Prime I'm hooked. OTH, I hated hated hated the special. I'm not a Wil Wheaton hater, but thought he was a poor choice as host. So, were Patton Oswald and Orlando Jones just hanging around the studio (and willing to work cheap?) when the special was shot? Because I don't see any connection. The dresser from my kids bedroom and a hubcap from a 76 Toyota corolla would have been just as relevant.

I only saw the first part, but from what I saw, Patton legitimately seemed like a huge fan of the show. He didn't seem like he was "prepped" just to appear on the special. I don't know about Orlando though, because I didn't see that part.

Wheaton's done the after the show show for Falling Skies. I think they were web only.
He's also got his own show coming up in May. I like him in general but I haven't watched the Orphan Black thing from last night yet.

Save the hour for something productive. Once the "it's nice to see the show's actors again" wears off, it's a pile of Meh.

Thanks. Since I just binge watched the first season last week I think I can wait until the 19th for more.

We were psyched to watch the season premiere this morning! And then we found out what recorded wasn't the season premiere. :-(

Looking forward to S2. Really enjoyed this show when I caught up on it a few months ago.

So weird to see the apartment set lit with "talk show"-style lighting during the special last night.

Was that really the set? I got the impression that it was a set built specifically for the special, dressed to look like the apartment.

I just went back and looked at it and I'm pretty sure that's the case... there's no depth to the set, it's just a large scale print with a few set dressing pieces in front of it.

This show really, really needs a one hour "remind me what happened last season" clip show, both for people who saw it (but there's a lot to keep in your head and it happened a while ago, and for those who might want to jump in now), and they had one hour to fill to get people excited, and this is what they came up with?

I lasted about 10 minutes into that discussion group special. Wil Wheaton is just too annoying. I thought it would be the season premiere too. Disappointed.

For some reason my DVR recorded repeats of the entire first season; it was set for first run only. Anyway, I binge re-watched all 10 episodes just recently, so I'm ready. Bring on season 2!

I rewatched the last ep from last season as a recap, which will be really helpful. I haven't seen the special from Saturday yet, but I am not sure I'll get to it before I start S2.

Yeah, I initially thought it was just some random set with props from the show on it, but Wil Wheaton claimed near the beginning of the show that they were on the actual set. He wouldn't lie to me, would he?

It's possible they had the set pieces arranged somewhat differently than when they're filming the show (such as having the "background" closer to stage front).

I think he was speaking metaphorically, referring to the set they were using as the one that it represents from the show.

The set they used for the special was clearly not the real filming set. It was just a large format print of a picture of the set.

I've been re-watching Season 1 in prep for tonight's premiere.

I watched the first five episodes over a three-day period. I watched the second five in a single afternoon/evening.
