Sarah is a streetwise outsider, currently on the run from a bad relationship and painfully separated from her own daughter. When an eerily lookalike stranger commits a shocking suicide right in front of her, Sarah sees a potential solution to all her problems by assuming the dead woman’s identity and clearing out her bank account. But instead, she stumbles headlong into a kaleidoscopic thriller mystery, and soon uncovers an earth-shattering secret: she is a clone. As Sarah searches for answers, she soon learns there are more like her out there, genetically identical individuals, nurtured in wildly different circumstances. And someone is trying to kill them off, one by one.

Re: Does Anyone Watch Orphan Black?

FINALLY someone in this forum made a thread for this show. Here, OP, I’ll make you a better opening post so no one asks what the show is about all the time:

I urge any one with Amazon Prime or On Demand try to catch up with this show. It is truly phenomenal. The lead actress plays different versions of the same character and sometimes I forget that they are all the same actor. It's just that good.


FY1: Just copy and paste all the way to the video.

Tatiana Maslany is a goddess.

The season 2 finale was so good.

I was a little thrown of with the introdcution of the male clones. It wasn't like I didn't see it coming, but I didn't expect it to be Mark of all people. He wasn't the most interesting new cast member, but he has to be good to get the part so I'm saving my criticism for next season.

There was an interview that I read after the finale with the show creators about that. He was chosen purely on his versatility as an actor, which is something necessary in order to play all of these various roles. They saw him being able to keep up with Tatiana and she loved him. He was actually not supposed to come back after the diner scene but he wowed them, lol.

They initially were thinking of going with Felix being the male clone but thought it would end up being too obvious so then thought it would be fun to have it be someone entirely unrelated to Sarah.

So he must be good, then! Looking forward for his future preformances. If he can keep up with Tatiana, no worries there.

I [I]almost[/I] thought it was going to be Felix, especially when Sarah said, "I know you," when she saw him. But yeah, that would be too obvious. I am disappointed that it's not Felix, though, because I've always wanted to see different sides of him.

So who's your favorite clone? Mine's Alyson. I don't know why, but I just love the way that Tatiana plays her. She just has mannerisms that make me lol when I know they're coming. I might get hate for this, but Cosima is the less interesting Clone. It's just that I feel that I haven't connected with her much because she hasn't been with the other clones as much except for video chats. My favorite parts are where Sarah and Alyson play as each other, like in the party in season 1 and in the rehab center in season 2. But, I admit, I don't know how I'll take Cosima's possible death. She's still such a great character!

Glad to see that y'all are proud members of the Clone Club. <3

that dance that the Clone Club did was just beyond awesome. All the different mannerisms that Tatiana can do is simply amazing. SHE IS AMAZING! ;~;

My favorite clone is defintiely a tie between Cosima and Alison. I just love both of them and fucking Alison, you do not want to fuck with her or else she will kill you with her fucking sink drainer. Bitch is a beast. XD

I can understand why your favorite isn't Cosima. Since they haven't really done much with her season two except have her work in the lab to figure out what the illness that is killing them is and most of her storyline in season one had to do with Delphine, so to me it is understandable. I love Alison, too. Her scenes are probably some of the funniest on the show. My favorite clone is Helena. I was so happy that Helena didn't die. I was really sad at the end of season one when I thought Sarah had killed her, but I'm glad she survived. Also, the journey Helena went through in season two just blew my mind and hurt my heart.

Oh my god, the Clone club dance party scene was so awesome. I laughed so hard at Helena dancing. xD You should check out the behind the scenes video of that sequence that BBC America posted on their YouTube channel, if you haven't already.
Alison is such a badass. I love her. Her dynamic with Donnie this season was really interesting and I found him a lot more entertaining this season.

I already have. It was pretty amazing seeing how they were able to edit that in and how Tatiana was able to make it to where none of the edits overlapped. Truly a genius she is or whoever it is that edited it all.

Oh yeah, whoever does the editing for the show does a great job because it always looks like it's two different actresses and not just Tatiana. I also think Kathryn Alexandre, who's Tatiana's body double, does a great job, too. Did you know she was in an episode this season?

Yeah, I noticed that. She does a wonderful job as Tatiana's double. It's a shame I haven't heard of her before this. :(

It would definitely be a plus for me.

But yeah, I can't wait for season 3. It's going to be a long-ass year wait. D:

I know!! That's the only thing that sucks is the long wait. The wait is even more annoying considering how season two ended.

Exactly! I guess we have no choice but to just wait it out. Good thing some of my favorite shows come back for new episodes in less than two months. <3
