I loved finding out a lot more on how the clones became who they are and what kind of things that went on with the process of cloning people. Some secrets come out about why the clones are not able to have children and some other secrets come out about rachel which I found interesting. I do not care for here but I also feel for her as the season concluded. She's still a crazy chick!
Sarah is still my favorite but cosima is my close second as she seems more down-to-earth and relatable. I love her dorky side but I do not like her girlfriend daphne I believe her name is. She's not such a bad person but I'd rather cosima be single and focus on herself and finding this cure for this sickness.
The finale scene has me more than excited to start season 3. Sadly its not on prime at the moment so I have to buy each episode. Also, this show was renewed for a season four so there's MUCH more to come!
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.
It's said that Spencer Tracy once appeared on stage in a play where he was supposed to be stranded on a desert island in the second act and he "acted" unkempt and unshaven to the point where people wondered how he got his make-up done that quickly. Tatiana Maslany accomplishes something similar. Cosima is thinner and prettier than the other clones. Helena is thicker and more solid. Alison is the most petite. Sarah taller. And then there's Tony.
Orphan Black is not just a one woman show, however. Jordan Gavaris is wonderful as her "brother" Felix, supportive to all the clones and never complaining as he takes a back seat to the force of nature that is Sarah Manning. The other supporting actors, too, are always interesting, whether it's Mrs. S proving again and again that she's hiding much more than she's ever revealed or Detective Bell learning just how little he actually knew about Beth Childs.
A typical episode might have Cosima dying from a genetic disorder, Sarah being chased by murderous assassins, Helena being tortured by religious fanatics and Alison . . . Alison organizing visitation day in rehab or supplying the proper refreshments for her kids' soccer practice. The fact that all 4 story lines are equally compelling is a sign of the quality of the show's writing and production. This is must see TV.
