The Second Season Trailer for 'Orphan Black' Looks OK
See how I downplayed that headline?
Eh, it looks OK. No big deal. Nothing to get worked up about, just several distinctive characters played by the exact same person. Happens every day, right? What’s all the hype about, anyway? I play different characters all day long, depending on the amount of coffee I’ve had. I don’t find it that challenging. That’s probably all that Tatiana Maslany does, too. She wants to play Alison? Four cups of coffee. If she wants to play murderous Helena, she just takes a break from coffee for a few hours. If she wants to play Cosima, she just puts soy milk in her coffee.
So, I’m not going to get excited about a silly little trailer hyping some whatever sci-fi show about a bunch of (super hot) clones. Give me a break. I’ve got a life, you know. Granted, it largely entails checking my DVR three times a day to ensure that the season pass on Orphan Black is still set, and crossing off the days on my calendar until April 19th arrives, and erecting a forcefield around my home so that NO ONE CAN BOTHER ME DURING THE SEASON PREMIERE OF ORPHAN BLACK.
