As most of you know by this week’s theme I’m trying to convince you to watch Orphan Black. I think I’m actually liking this more than The Walking Dead and Pretty Little Liars combined. That’s a pretty intense statement for me because I’m the first one to get excited about Walking Dead and PLL. I decided to put together some reasons why you should watch this show, besides the fact that it’s just awesome.
something like this could truly exist.
There can be such a thing as clones.
running from people, there is always something going on.
anything of that sort. Even a show like
Pretty Little Liars makes you analyze the people and you start to notice body
language, even though they are acting you can still tell that certain movements
my interest. The science and technology
behind Cosima’s character mostly because she’s the scientist is so
rebellious (she also takes over Beth’s identity after she walks in front of an
oncoming train in the first episode) but will do anything for her
daughter. Then there’s Allison who is
your typical soccer mom/stepford wife plus some neurotic behavior on the
side. You know the kind of person who’s
really nice and perfect but will put you in your place if she has to. Cosima is the lesbian scientist who is part
of the science behind this whole thing.
My favorite is Helena. She is
lost like Sarah, only she is the evil side of lost. She grew up in a convent in Ukraine and
afterwards was taught to kill and you watch her character evolve over the 3
seasons, but I won’t tell you what happens, no spoiler alerts. Then there’s Rachel, my least favorite
because she is a b-iatch. She runs the
whole thing as queen bee. There are a
few more clones that get introduced but those are the main ones that are in
all look alike, they each have their own character that she portrays
perfectly. She goes from a rebellious
teenager figure, to a soccer mom, to a crazy psycho with a Ukranian
accent. She really is great and truly
embraces each character.
wrong. No matter how much I analyze the
show, almost every time I’m surprised.
they are working with one actress who has to be a bunch of different people. The way that they edit is just amazing!
love story side of things there are a few things that happen that show that
just because these women are clones, they do have emotions and feelings.
don’t know what I’m talking about or they’ve heard of it but never watched
it. I feel like this show is very
underestimated and that’s why you should give it a shot because it’s not
blasted all over the place so you don’t really get too many spoiler alerts if
you hop onto Facebook.
