Orphan Black is Back
Season Two of Orphan Black hits the ground running with Sarah Manning in a desperate race to recover her missing daughter. However, her scorched-earth tactics end up sparking a war that divides the clones and puts them all at risk. As Sarah discovers more about her past, mysterious newcomers appear, but can they be trusted? Find out as this suspenseful BBC TV series continues.
Actress Maslany plays seven different roles (clones) in the series and has a continuity team to keep her from mixing up the various characters.
To develop his character Felix, Jordan Gavaris used glam rockers Mick Jagger and Billy Idol for inspiration.
To create the clone scenes, Maslany does one take with a double and then repeats the scene with a different double. The two takes are layered together during editing.
The show has a science consultant whose real-life name is Cosima, the same as one of the lead characters.
Co-creator and director John Fawcett has said the movie Memento was a major inspiration for the Orphan Black series.

Orphan Black follows outsider, orphan and street-wise chameleon Sarah Manning. After witnessing a woman's suicide, Sarah assumes the stranger's identity - who happens to look just like her. Expecting to solve all her problems by cleaning out the dead woman's savings, Sarah is instead thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery as she realizes the dizzying truth - she and the dead woman are clones. As Sarah searches for answers, she discovers the chilling fact that there are more people like her out there - genetically identical individuals who were planted in unsuspecting birth parents and nurtured in completely different circumstances. With no idea who created the clones, she'll need to discover the reason in a hurry as an assassin is killing them one by one. Tatiana Maslany and Dylan Bruce star in the TV drama Orphan Black. The complete second season of this sci-fi BBC TV series is available in a 3-disc set on DVD.
Slowly, a smartly constructed epic is taking shape --Jeff Jensen, Entertainment Weekly
It is, flat out, one of the most intriguingly entertaining new series of the year, and it's so much more than pure entertainment. For a sci-fi series, there is some real heft to it. --Tim Goodman, The Hollywood Reporter
Gritty, visceral, and emotionally engaging thriller. --Tirdad Derakhshani, Philadelphia Inquirer

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!
If you haven't heard about how good Tatiana Maslany is as several unique characters who share the same DNA, then you must have been living under a rock. I still sometimes forget that it's her playing each character, and I'm the type of person who will pick up on even the slightest slips in characterizations or accents.
My love of the "sci-fi light" category was inspired by X-Files as a kid, and the shows I mentioned in the title are on my all-time favorite list. Orphan Black is right up there at the top of the list, proving that you don't need alien impregnations and spaceships to create top notch sci-fi storytelling.
