Orphan Black Season 2
I know I totally skipped talking about season one after I watched it, but I just finished season 2 a few weeks ago and it was so good, I couldn’t not come talk about it.
First and foremost Tatiana Maslany is an amazing actress. She plays 90% of the cast and does a fantastic job while she’s at it. A force to be reckoned with.
Crazy, demented, fun is what this show is. I checked out the first season with my dad when it came out on dvd forever ago. The first episode was just weird, and I didn’t know if I could really get into it. It wasn’t until they brought Helena on that I started realizing just how twisted and addicting this show is.
While I’m glad they’ve added more clones, I’m pretty attached to the main four, plus Felix and Kira. Everyone seems to have a hidden secret this season. It’s hard to figure out who you can trust and it that trust is a full thing. The fact that Donnie is playing more of an active roll and not just some supposed monitor is great too. He’s funny in a scared way.
Season two is where they seem to really be playing up that shock value. There were several cringe invoking moments, that me and my dad both shared, most of them rightfully involving Helena, my favorite clone.
She is creepy more than half the time based on her ridiculous, religious upbringing, but there are times when she can almost be sweet. The jury is still out, but I believe she’s not completely ready to join the good side, too many people have taken something away from her or in this season given her. I’ve even changed all my sister’s names to Seestra in my phone.
The whole idea of the show and clones is intense, so be prepared.
I tried not to spoil anything, but as an added bonus I’m including some prediction I have for the next season.
