Just something I thought was awesome for reals …

If you haven’t watched Orphan Black yet, you have, as the trailer notes, until April 19 to get caught up on season 1’s 10 episodes so you’re ready to go for season 2. And now that True Detective is over, you have the time.
I say this as someone with a largely unblemished history of not feeling sci-fi. So a show about a woman who has been cloned as part of some sort of mysterious conspiracy and now, along with her other selves, is kicking ass to find the truth didn’t figure to be something I’d get into. But here’s the thing:
Orphan Black is SO well-done. And Tatiana Maslany, who plays all the clones, is UNBELIEVABLE. “Plays” isn’t even really a fair verb; it’s more like she inhabits them. That she wasn’t nominated for an Emmy last year was preposterous. She deserves one this year for this trailer alone.
