This show wasn’t even on my radar until good friend, Sal from Cromeyellow, raved about it. After checking out season one, I can see why he was so exuberant about it. Now like everyone else who has fallen under its spell, I can’t WAIT for season two to start. In season one Sarah hopes that cleaning out a dead woman’s bank account will solve all her problems. Instead, her problems multiply – and so does she.
Orphan Black features rising star Tatiana Maslany (Cas & Dylan, Picture Day) in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones… but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy and must race to find answers about who she is and how many others there are just like her.
As luck would have it, the BBC has just released a teaser trailer that only stokes my desire to see more. As Sarah says in the teaser: “I’m part of a sisterhood like no other, a piece of a puzzle I can barely comprehend. My life is someone else’s experiment.” Will Sarah and the rest of the clones get to the bottom of things in season 2? Only time will tell but till then, give the teaser a watch and speculate like the rest of us. The New Season of Orphan Black hits TV on April 19, 2014 9/8c VIA BBC AMERICA.
