10 Reasons why you should watch Orphan Black

4:00 AM

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.

1.  Very realistic

When you watch Orphan Black it’s almost as if you feel that something like this could truly exist.  There can be such a thing as clones. 

2.  Suspenseful

There’s always some kind of action.  Whether it be the psycho Helena or Sarah running from people, there is always something going on.

3.  Analytical

I love shows that make you think, like CSI, NCIS, or 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 mean something.

4.  Science

I’m not a huge science person, but certain things do catch my interest.  The science and technology behind Cosima’s character mostly because she’s the scientist is so interesting. 

5.  Clone for Everyone

There really is a clone for everyone.  The main character Sarah is kind of lost and 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 every season. 

6.  Tatiana Maslany’s Acting

This actress is truly amazing.  If you watch Orphan Black, even though they 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.

7.  There’s always a twist

Right when you think you know what’s going to happen you’re wrong.  No matter how much I analyze the show, almost every time I’m surprised.

8.  Graphics are on point

First of all, they do such a great job with the fact that they are working with one actress who has to be a bunch of different people.  The way that they edit is just amazing!

9.  Love stories for those Romantics

For those of you who are always looking for the romantic 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.

10.  Underestimated

Whenever I ask people if they watch this show they either 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.
