Tatiana Maslany, Michiel Huisman
Everybody join the Clone Club!
It's Binge Saturday and this week's pick is Orphan Black. This exciting BBC America original stars Tatiana Maslany as Sarah, a woman who adopts the identity of someone she witnesses committing suicide only to later learn that they are actually clones of each other — and there are more out there.
Tatiana Maslany and Jordan Gavaris
Orphan Black's Felix Dawkins is more than just a party boy with a toned set of buns. On the sci-fi drama Saturday (9/8c, BBC America), our favorite foster brother (Jordan Gavaris) is currently on the run with sis Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany) and her daughter Kira (Skyler Wexler). We haven't seen Felix quite like this before

Fortunately, by the end of Saturday's Season 2 premiere, we learned that we didn't have to. It turns out that getting shot in the torso won't slow Helena (Tatiana Maslany) down much.

"You are a bloody wrecking ball. You are an exploding cigar," laments a confidante of the clones under siege in BBC America's thrillingly entertaining Orphan Black. She's also a bloody marvel, as Tatiana Maslany plays these diverse doppelgangers with astonishing range and surprising nuance. Scrappy street waif? Check. High-strung soccer mom? Check. Lesbian scientist-in-training? Check. Deranged Russian assassin? Why not. Beyond a provocative premise and blistering pace, Orphan Black is a terrific showcase for one of TV's great performances. Even when it threatens to look like a stunt, with one clone at another's throat in a smackdown or layering the subterfuge when one clone pretends to be another, this bonded-by-genetics sister act never feels forced or phony.
"Right now is the time to resist our predisposition to impulsive behavior." When the second season of sci-fi thriller Orphan Black returns Saturday (9/8c, BBC America), we'll see just how little the clones heed Cosima's advice.
It's almost time for another meeting of the Clone Club!
After a nearly year-long hiatus, BBC America's sci-fi thriller Orphan Black will return for its second season on Saturday, April 19 at 9/8c, with star Tatiana Maslany bringing our favorite clones back to life.
In the second season, protagonist Sarah Manning (Maslany) and her fellow clones (also Maslany) attempt to get to the bottom of the conspiracy behind the mysterious Dyad Institute, run by the Neolutionists who believe in self-directed evolution and created the clones. They're opposed by the Proletheans, religious extremists who view the clones as abominations against God.

Adding another layer to the drama is the introduction of new clone Jennifer Fitzsimmons, a Midwestern teacher and swim coach who sought Dyad's help after she fell ill with a respiratory disease similar to that of German clone Katja. And don't forget about pro-clone Rachel, who is hellbent on getting her hands on Sarah.
