So, a while ago, I watched the first episode of Orphan Black, and I just couldn’t get into it. Even though it was a BBC production and I usually love dark stuff. Lately, I’ve opted to watch lighter, fluffy fare. Plus, I’m usually a lot more finicky when it comes to watching TV, as opposed to reading anything and everything in book format. I see a lot more what I refer to as “cookie cutter” (predictable) acting, especially in a lot of sci-fi, suspense, and mystery shows, these days. Also, I have a decided preference for (ahem, more mature) classically trained actors who have merged their stage career with movie/TV acting.
Anyway, I was having a hard time settling on a show to watch, after (finally!) catching up on Once Upon a Time, so I gave Orphan Black a go, again.
It is so frickin’ good!
(No idea what makes up a spoiler these days, but just in case…watch out for any spoilers, either here, or in the comments LOL)
In between all the armchair-gripping suspense, I am laughing my ass off at some of Tatiana Maslany‘s character portrayals.
Thanks to her, I am now completely hooked on the show!
I’ve only just started Season Two of Orphan Black, so please don’t post up any spoilers (even though I’m gettin’ senile and will probably forget by the next time I sit down to watch the show!). Thanks!
Two Vulcan “V” signs for this show, and for the amazing Tatiana Maslany!
For those of you who have seen the show, what do you think of Maslany’s performance(s)?
