We’d like all 8 reasons to just be Tatiana Maslany, but for those of you who still need more convincing we’ve compiled a list of compelling reasons for why you need to watch Orphan Black.
At this point there’s no excuse for not giving Orphan Black a shot, with 8 months to go until it’s comeback in April of 2014 you can watch an episode every two weeks and still have plenty of time! But you won’t need that long because once you start you won’t be able to stop.
Check out our 8 reasons for why you must give this show a shot!
Character development that makes you connect with almost every character.
Often times when you’re watching a TV show or movie you find yourself identifying with at least one character. Whether that’s the main hero or the antagonist, that’s your prerogative, but a good story will make sure that you connect with someone. Orphan Black manages to have it’s audience identifying with almost every clone and even the antagonist. You’ll question your morals once you realize that you feel for the villain!
Original storytelling that will blow your mind.
Clones/twins have been done before, but Orphan Black manages to take it to a whole new level. You think you already know what the show is about and that you won’t be interested in another show with “clones” but once you watch you’ll realize that Orphan Black is more than just clones: It’s about how different you can be if you were raised in a different environment, nature vs nurture and what would happen if science went to a whole new level than we know now.
Writing that gets you hooked with episode one.
There are pilots that make you go “ooh that was good” and then there’s Orphan Black. When you finish the first episode you’ll immediately want to watch the next because by the end you’ll just be saying to yourself (and your friends) “what the eff was that?!” And as soon as you get introduced to all the different clones in the show you’ll realize that each character is so different and so amazing that you’ll grow attached to all of them.
If you think Orphan Black is a show that’ll do the cheapskate way of doing clones and never showing them in the same frame, you’re dead wrong. You’ll learn quickly that this show will do the previously impossible and show multiple clones in one frame, giving you the impression that Tatiana Maslany is actually talking to herself.
