I just watched this ep and will be binge-watching S01 this next week. Loved it and looking forward to this and S02 starting tonight...

Just found out about this series in the past few days since we just picked up BBCA HD on our system...

I watched the first episode last night, and will watch one or two more tonight. Very intriguing so far.

I'm getting hooked the deeper I get into this. I'm four shows in the first season...

I tried a couple of times but didn't finish the first episode until this past weekend. I've watched a couple more and am hooked as well.

Thread bump.

We just stumbled onto this show and binge watched S1E1-E4 last night. We like it a lot.

And in terms of the "clone" thing, I had no idea about that part of the show, so when it was revealed, it was a really nice twist that hadn't been spoiled for us previously. It instantly turned from a gritty cop/criminal drama into a sci-fi show. I like it.

And just because it's me, I couldn't tell at first the German was also a doppelganger until later when I asked my g/f "so was the German also a clone?".

Good show. The cinematography and acting reminds me a lot of "Black Mirror"

That's the beauty of this show. The clones aren't just obviously the same girl. In fact sometimes it's hard to believe it's the same girl.

Yeah, as I've said before, there's probably at least one moment in each episode when I forget it's all Maslany.

Knowing how well she does it, and the fact that she has to get "into the groove" of the correct clone with the music she listens to it's pretty amazing.
More amazing is when she plays a clone impersonating another clone, that floors me.

Yeah, and the fact that it's never confusing is part of why in the moment I'm able to so totally believe that I'm watching the characters, not the actor.

Still burns me she didn't even get nominated for an Emmy. Criminal. Might as well go back to watching figure skating.

Yeah, that time she was (and avoiding spoilers here) one clone pretending to be another to sneak into a place, it was like 2 seconds and I was "Wait, that's <other clone>, not <the one we were supposed to think it was>", and I was totally blown away by the acting chops to do that.

I saw one of the interviews with the other cast members that they have weird moments like that all the time because she'll be in clothes and makeup for one clone, while they rehearse a scene for another clone that they'll be filming later, and that's its just plain odd.

She is SO good. She should totally be a household name.

(Oh, and if you have a 4k TV the show is available in UHD on Amazon Prime, and it's so worth watching again!)

I just started watching this show this weekend. I have watched the first 3 episodes so far and am hooked. A friend of mine recommended it. He also got me to watch Continuum.

He said to keep watching because it just gets better.

I just watched the first four episodes on DVD. OMG, so good! Not only her completely believable portrayal of each clone, but how the story unfolds. I keep getting surprised as the plot and characters unravel yet another layer.

Anyone have inside scoop or even a theory on when s3 will come to Amazon prime or Netflix? I'm about to cave and buy it but I've made it this long, I know as soon as I do it'll pop up.

I don't know, but I am interested in your webcam's theory.

As long as it's not a string cheese or big bang theory we should be safe...

Season 2 showed up on Netflix right before Season 3 started airing. It disappeared sometime after Season 3 finished airing.

Amazon has some sort of deal where they have exclusive streaming rights to Orphan Black. I remember that being announced early last year.
I have no idea of the deal details, but I'm guessing that while BBCA is airing a new season, Amazon loses the exclusivity, probably because BBCA wants to be able to widen the shows access to people, in hopes of getting them hooked and then having them watch the new season.

I don't know WTF that was supposed to be! It wasn't even that early, but I definitely wasn't fully caffeinated.
