BBC America Renews 'Orphan Black' for Season 3
The Hollywood Reporter ^ | July 9, 2014 | Philiana Ng

Orphan Black has cloned itself another season.

BBC America has renewed the critically hailed sci-fi series led by Tatiana Maslany for a third season, greenlighting 10 more episodes for a spring 2015 premiere. Production on the new season kicks off in Toronto in September.

The one-hour clone drama has become a crucial benchmark for the cable network as it expands its foothold in original scripted programming beyond British staple Doctor Who. Orphan Black has attracted more that its share of accolades since its March 2013 launch, earning Maslany — who plays nearly a dozen characters — a Golden Globe nomination and honors from the Critics' Choice TV Awards, TCA Awards and Canadian Screen Awards. This year, Orphan Black added a Peabody Award to its trophy case.

Good! I started binge watching this series a few days ago based on a Freeper's recommendation and this show is fantastic with beyond belief acting. Right now on Season 1 Episode 8. So I have a bunch more binge watching before I catch up.

I can’t watch that one. The female clones are hot but the shemale version pretty much kilt it for me.

In before the “I don’t have a tv and I’m so much smarter than you people that do” comment.

“I stopped watching during the first or second episode when a character decided to steal anothers identity and boyfriend..”

That is actually the moment that catches most people and sucks them in. It was right at the beginning of the first episode so you didn’t give it much of a chance. She does it not knowing she is a clone at the time and sees an opportunity to make some money. Little did she know to start with that the identity she was stealing was a cops.

No, it looked like she was going to sleep with someone else’s man, so I turned it off.

I tried to like this series and did, at first, but it got too Torchwood for me and I decided it wasn’t worth it, even though the star is great.

“No, it looked like she was going to sleep with someone else’s man, so I turned it off.”

Yes, she was doing that to avoid having to answer questions and avoid detection.

That’s aside from the portrayals of homosexual behavior.

I’m not a prude and can handle a homosexual character but the crap about reminding me every few minutes gets to be too much.

Reminds me of a FOX show. I don’t watch TV any more but I was bored. I think it was “Mindy Project” or something.

A girl and her BF decides she should sleep with someone else and she does. The end.

I never watched FOX again except for a few football games.

“Well, then I am not interested.”

But if you had continued to watch you would find out that she is a mother with an absolutely adorable little girl for whom she would do anything to keep safe, and was trying to get away from an abusive boyfriend.

You would also find out that the “boyfriend” you referred to has much more complex ties to the clones.

Exactly. That is why I stopped watching “Last Tango in Halifax”.

I don’t care. She is capable of sleeping with a stranger, then she is not a character I would give a crap about.

The new TNT show "The last ship" has a lesbian character but its not central to the plot. She mentioned it and the show moved on. I'm fine with that. The Walking dead also has a lesbian character but its not central to the show. I think it's come up in passing on 1 episodes.

AMC's "Turn" has a gay character but its treated as it would be in 1776. (He was turned into a British spy to "hide his shame". Even in this case its forgettable that he's gay.

Talked About Scene: Episode 102: TURN: Who by Fire

One of the best shows on TV by the way. Very historically based and very pro American.

This is good news. I’ve watched it from the beginning and have especially enjoyed the acting talents of Tatiana Maslany.

She was wearing men’s briefs by the way.

Repulsive characters. Heck, I’d off the star myself (that is, the “on screen” star). She is a POS.

Not your typical BBC work.

Tatiana is remarkable indeed! I’m constantly marveling at her subtleties. Now the trani-clone was another story. Kinda weak. I do like the gay dude. AFAIK, the actor is straight and Canadian, and he very believable.
