I really enjoyed watching Orphan Black there are 5 seasons altogether so its a perfect length in my opinion. Its about human cloning, and its very scientific so its quite hard to describe all the ins and outs of the series.
Without giving too much away the main character, Sarah Manning first discovers her look-a-like on a train station platform. After stealing her bag Sarah discovers that this other person has quite a lot of money in their bank account so she decides to steal the identity of Beth Childs to access this, little did she know what she was getting herself into and it all goes down hill from there. Sarah is an orphan and was adopted so her first thoughts are obviously that this Beth Childs was her long lost twin however she soon discovers that they are not the only ones who look like each other and she has a bigger family then she thought. Im not going to say too much on the story line as i wouldn’t want to spoil it for you but it is defiantly worth a watch! 🙂
The first episode really does grab your attention, its action packed straight from the beginning, non of that boring slow start where you have to watch at least 1 whole season to get into it.
I found that some episodes do get quite confusing and your sat there thinking ‘what the hell is going on‘ but it does come together eventually so it really does draw you in and leaves you wanting more. It gets confusing because the actress Tatiana Maslany plays multiple characters, now this might sound a bit tacky but it really isn’t. Tatiana plays each character really well with changing her personality and accent to suit each perfectly, it is also created in such a way that when you get into it it really does feel like your starting to love all the characters as individuals. Its a great series to watch just for that in my opinion.
Also it gets confusing because of all the science that is involved now if your like me and no nothing about science then it might make your head hurt a little when trying to figure out whats going on but… at the same time it is all very interesting. There are also a few organisations involved so it does get a bit hard trying to remember whos working for who. But please don’t let any of that put you off.
The ending to this series i thought was really good and rounded of the whole series nicely 🙂 I give Orphan black a 10\10 score rating.
If you have watched it i would love to hear your thoughts and comments and who’s your favorite character mines Helena 😛
