This episode has a twist at the end fans of the first season will just love.
The writing is witty. The cinematography is brilliant. Each of the primary characters; Felix, Art, Shivon, Delphine are all portrayed powerfully and extremely well. The rest of the supporting cast; Lekey, Paul, Thomas, etc. are all pretty good. But, Rachel, Helena, Cassima, Allison and especially Sarah are all played breathtakingly perfect, in fact, absolutely perfect in every way. IMHO, Orphan Black is the best TV on TV right now.
Fast forward to season two and apart from the exceptional lead actress, it's like they fired all the original writers and decided to jump the shark during the season break. There has been an explosion of weak secondary characters introduced for no reason other than to create B plots - from the cliched nutty religious group to the horribly cliched evil genetics company run seemingly by a handful of people and headed by one kindly grandfatherly (but evil) guy, it's hard to engage seriously with any of these 2-dimensional setups.
Season 2 has failed to create a central dramatic question and has instead opted to use poor dialog to create weak tension that only serves to get the audience to the next scene. The dialog has devolved into exposition where at any given time characters are explaining backstory to the audience, searching for something or trying to find someone that introduces the next step of the odyssey. And the problem with this is that it's lost the dramatic tension that made the audience care in the first place, and now characters are making illogical decisions and operating in a consequence-free vacuum.Read more ›
