I really need to re-watch this anyway. I bought it on release week... but have been behind in watching other things and I kind of wanted to binge-watch this whole season again over a weekend.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

Junk DNA perhaps?

It would take a person who deals with DNA to be able to answer that. But, it is my gut feeling that there can't be any "junk" DNA. Each and every strand serves a purpose.

For the purpose of the series, I can let it slide.

I don't know of any series that doesn't have creative license regarding something.

My favorite actress is the one playing Cosima. The others are good but she's the best actress.

I would agree, but I was really surprised they were able to get so many actresses that look similar.

"Maslany stars as the lead character, as well as several of her clones, in the 2013 BBC America and Space original series, Orphan Black."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tatiana_Maslany

Tatiana Maslany as a number of clones (see below), all born in 1984 to various women by in vitro fertilisation.

No, I'm sure Tatania has twin sisters who are in the show too. Patania plays soccer biotch, Statania plays Cosima and Ratania plays Helana.

No...

Tatiana, Matriana, Patriana, Statiana, and Margaret Elizabeth Corkington-Smythe are their names.

Orphan Black S1 is returning to BBC America in less than two weeks for those who want to re-watch, catch up or enjoy this great show for the first time!

According to the BBC America schedule page, the 10-part Orphan Black S1 will be paired with the basic cable premiere of the 10-part Torchwood: Miracle Day starting Saturday, September 14 (Torchwood at 9pm, Orphan Black at 10pm). This should continue for 10 straight weeks, ending on November 16, the week before the premieres of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary special and new series Atlantis on November 23.

May I gently suggest - it's not necessary to quote the whole post, and thereby re-post the pictures that were posted immediately above, when replying to a given post. Just saying... It happens all the time and it just clutters up threads with duplicate pictures. smile.gif

Glad I found this thread. I became obsessed with OB after reading about it in Entertainment Weekly and binged watched it. I really appreciate her work playing one character who's playing another character. She is amazing.

Love the show and don't mind the little inconsistencies since they're hard to find like Easter Eggs. I found one in the last episode when Sarah goes to see ProClone. you can see the reflection of the building in the shiny desktop however, in the window you can see lots of smoke but you don't see it reflected on the desktop. However, later, when Proclone walks over to the other side of the desk you can see the refection of the smoke in the desk. It's all about the masking of the shot.

Love the show and from reading the earlier comment will def check out Dollhouse.

This is the same series of Torchwood that Starz ran a couple of summers ago that basically killed Torchwood.

I wouldn't say that... Without Starz, the BBC had already killed Torchwood after "Children of Earth"... Only through Starz did we get another season, even if it was a mixed bag and a bit stretched out over those 10 episodes... but Torchwood was already on the deathbed thanks to BBC.

Yeah baby!  It's Halloween!

Miracle Day WAS NOT Torchwood. It was the work of a Davis clone.

It wasn't a mixed bag, it was a HUGE bag of suck! If there was any chance of Torchwood resurfacing, that chance is certainly gone now. COTE was just short of brilliant. MD was stupider than Under the Dome!
