Review Links – “Orphan Black”

“Orphan Black” [Pasted from linked Wikipedia reference above …]

Orphan Black is a American-Canadian science fiction television series that stars Tatiana Maslany as several identical women who are revealed to be clones. The series focuses on Sarah Manning, a woman who assumes the identity of her clone, Elizabeth Childs, after the latter commits suicide. The series raises issues about the moral and ethical implications of human cloning and its impact on issues of personal identity.

The show premiered at WonderCon in Anaheim, California on March 29, 2013. The television premiere of the first 10-episode season was on March 30, 2013. On May 2, 2013 BBC America renewed Orphan Black for a 10-episode second season to air in 2014.

As an explanation of the series title, in Season 1 Episode 8 there is mention by Mrs S.(Siobhan) who says “children in the black” were “undocumented, outside of the system…subjects of medical experiments”.

EYE-BALL MovieZone Review:

The lead actress in the show – Tatiana Maslany – won the ‘Best Actress’ in a Drama Series award at the recent US Critics Awards – she is tipped as a ‘dark-horse’ choice for the Emmy Best Actress award next month.

The show takes 2-3 episodes to understand the ‘sicence-fiction’ aspect but when it kicks in the whole show opens up. The lead actress plays seven different parts in the series and each of the roles requires completely different perspectives and history.

The 2nd season set for 2014 promises much and will be interesting to see where the shows goes once the end of season storyline is dealt with.

Review Score: … Highly recommend viewing.
