While I have my problems with Comcast, I was quite happy that they let me watch season two of Orphan Black for free even though it aired last May. For those of you that have not watched the show you are really missing out. This is one of my favorite new shows. BBC America (USA)/Space (Canada) have a winner on their hands.
Much like last year, Sarah Manning is continuing to look for answers about her past with the help of her clone sisters. Well most of them try to help anyway. The latest clone she has discovered, Rachel, actually works for The Dyad Institute, and Rachel is doing everything in her power to bring the clones back under company control.
What I love about the writing of this show is that they are actually letting us figure things out. There isn’t one big secret, and they are stretching it out for forever. There are a ton of secrets, so you constantly feel like you are learning and progressing. It also helps that there are only ten episodes a season, so there isn’t any filler.
Tatiana Maslany continues her tour de force performance as Sarah Manning and the rest of the clones. She gives all the sisters such unique personalities that you never confuse them, but she is never overacting. If she isn’t nominated for an Emmy this year it will prove that the award has no meaning. The rest of the cast continues to be good, but this show is all about the clones, and Maslany is playing the roles perfectly.
I can’t wait for May for season three to come out. I need to know what happens next. It is a great time to be a geek with so much good Sci-Fi all over the place. If you are not watching Orphan Black you should be.
