I love Orphan Black. I have been a fan of this show since season one. I love this show for a number of reason, but Tatiana Maslany is a huge reason. She literally plays 8+ characters believably. Tatiana is at her most amazing when she is another character pretending to be another character that she plays. Every time we meet a new clone, I am amazed at her skills. The final season is approaching, starting Saturday June 10th at 10pm. I thought a recap of the seasons was in order.
Season 1- This chick who looks like me just jumped in front of a train, I’m going to steal her identity to get away from my crazy drug dealer ex boyfriend. Woah, dead lady has $75,000 in the bank. What is happening here?! How many of us are there? Cosima and Alison are amazing. I have a kid. Helena is terrifying. What the fuck is Neolution? Helena is now cool. Cosima is sick.
Season 2- Hello baby daddy and Rachel’s daddy and Helena’s tube babies daddy. Helena has babies? Prolethians- terrifying farmers and scientific incest enthusiasts. Cosima gets sicker. Alison goes to rehab.
Season 3- Fucking crazy Boy clones. We find out who the original clone is! Robotics. Alison and Donnie are drug dealers. Delphine? Cosima tries online dating. Krystal. Oh no, Paul.
Season 4- All of the feelings. Beth is amazing. They dig up a body. Not so much on the boy clones. Helena lives in a park. How many of us are there?! Mommy dearest on an island. Insert Dolly the sheep joke.
Are you ready for the final trip? Cause I am!
Season’s 1 through 4 are available to purchase or stream on Amazon. New episodes will air on BBC America Saturdays at 10:00 P.M
