    Orphan Black - Season 2

    This deserves its own thread IMHO. Season 2 starts tomorrow at 9:00 pm eastern on BBC America and Space in Canada. I've been doing a season 1 re-watch the last few days, and am once again struck by how absorbing the series is. Tatiana Maslany is a truly amazing actress. To whet your appetite, check out this "Cloneversation" with the cast hosted by Wil Wheaton earlier this week: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zb_HEyrBBs8 Warning: Wil can be a wee bit annoying at times.

    I watched part of the Cloneversation on BBCA. Wil Wheaton is terrible!

    But, for season 2!

    I'm so glad someone has started this thread! I love this show! Tatiana M. is absolutely superb; she has the look of a young Helen Mirren at times. And I love Jordan G. Actually the whole cast is terrific. Funny, I have an actor friend who auditioned for the show and didn't know a thing about it. I was trying to get some spoilers from him but he just read for a brief bit as a motel owner who didn't see anything.

    This show has become my TV crack addiction . I'm currently watching the marathon running on BBC America. They just started the second round of airing Season One in its entirety at 8:00pm EDT, which will run until 6:00am tomorrow morning, followed by the one-hour Cloneversation special from 6:00 until 7:00am. They're then going to re-air episodes 6-10 from 7:00 until Noon.

    From Noon until 9:00, they're airing the entire Matrix Trilogy, and then at 9:00pm, of course...it's

    SEASON TWO PREMIERE TIME!!

    Only 21 hours (well, 15 minutes more than that) to go!!

    Previously.tv has a discussion forum set up for it here: http://forums.previously.tv/forum/97-orphan-black/, and they will be doing recaps as other goodies here: http://previously.tv/shows/orphan-black/

    ETA: Does anybody here think that Tatiana Maslany bears a bit of a resemblance to Elena Ilinykh? They're both , but someone about their looks/bone structure is strikingly similar IMO.

    BBC America air times for the Season Two Premiere (from my post at Previously.tv):

    BBC America will be broadcasting the first episode of Season Two on Saturday 19/4/14 at 9:00pm EDT, and then again on Sunday 20/4/14 at 12:00am (midnight) EDT and 3:00am EDT. Local channels, depending on where you live, may be different, depending on your cable or satellite service.

    They will also air it again on Sunday 20/4/14 at 11:00pm EDT.

    Just wanted to post these additional air times in case anyone here is unable to catch it during the original premiere time.

    Wheeee, totally fab episode! I was a bit worried that the quality and intensity might drop off in Season 2, but it was just fine. Still blown away by the awesomeness that is Tatiana Maslany – I totally forget that it’s one person playing all these different characters.

    Damn - that has to be one of the best Season Premieres in the history of television!!

    Tatiana Maslany killed it, as usual. Loved the scene where Sarah was pretending to be Cosima .

    It takes a superb actor to share a scene with T.M. but Jordan G. does it! He can really act his pants off, literally!

    I liked Sarah hitting Rachel after Rachel said you can't hit me.

    Love this series, great premier. Jordan G. deserves an award just for putting on that provocative lingerie.

    Soccer Mom is my favourite Great touch with the pepper spray and the whistle.

    BBC America put out this video with some of Fe's best lines/scenes from Season One:

    Jordan Gavaris is F-E-L-I-X

    ******

    "You cannot hide in minimalist furniture!"

    "Hey!!......Sharesies?"

    "There's redness - right there - tiny little suburban stress zits!"

    "Does your Daddy have a drinks trolley?"

    ....and my favorite: "Adios, Dragsters!!!"



    Tatiana is definitely the star of OB, but Jordan/Felix damn near steals every scene he's in .

    My friend watches this -- we watched some of the season 1 marathon this weekend. She told me that she thought the actress based Helena's personality on Oksana Bauil!
    I think I will have a snack and take a nap before I eat and go to sleep.

    Good ratings! 'Orphan Black' Season Two Premiere Doubles Adults 18-49 Season One Average

    BBC AMERICA’s award-winning thriller, Orphan Black, returned Saturday night with its highest ever A18-49 rating. The series saw a 97% increase in A18-49, doubling the season one average, and is now second only to the channel’s highest rated series Doctor Who in A18-49. In addition, Orphan Black was the #1 television show on Twitter and Tumblr for the day and is the #1 basic cable drama on Twitter for the week.

    Am I the only one old enough to remember Matt Frewer as Max Headroom? Every time Dr. Leekie speaks I giggle to myself a little bit.

    Definitely not the only one -- I busted out laughing when he first appeared on screen .

    Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

    Meet The Woman (Besides Tatiana Maslany) Who Plays Every Single "Orphan Black" Clone

    Kathryn Alexandre has been in every episode of Orphan Black, but you don’t know her face. The show’s clone double speaks about the behind-the-scenes role of a lifetime.
    Alexandre will appear in episode 9 as a character of her own. The accompanying behind-the-scenes video is fascinating.

    Episode 2 tonight!
