Last Orphan Black thread is closed and was made before Season 5 (and 4, I think), so Ta-da!
Orphan Black is one of my favourite shows ever. Tatiana Maslany is such an incredible actor. She’s so amazing. And the directing and music are all so on point. Everything about the show just pushes all the right buttons for me. The sole thing I don’t like is trying to tell people about the show, because the reveal of the “sisters” in episode 3(i think) is so much better if you didn’t know before hand, but if you don’t tell them what it is, you can’t really tell that what the shows about.
If anyone’s mid-way through watching it, be warned that there will probably be spoilers in this thread, but I will use the spoiler function for any spoiler I write. Can’t speak for everyone though. Also, don’t reveal spoilers unless you’ve seen S5.
One of the things I love the most is that it isn’t obscenely gorey, but when there is something graphic and gorey it’s to send a message.
Like when Aldous, MK, S and Ferdinand die its not particularly gorey. Just a little bit of blood (or not even in MK’s case), but it shows Helena cutting herself for pleasure to show traumatised and demented it is, and when Rachael gouges out her eye with a broken cocktail glass it shows her complete change of heart and her determination to be free of the Neos.
