Critic Reviews for Orphan Black Season 2

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (21)

Sorry to say, the sometimes arbitrary storytelling, the lackadaisical direction, the reliance on coincidence and miraculous plot turns all undermine the drama. Maslany deserves better.

Maslany is so good here that one wishes she wasn't so often forced to deal with exposition in her dialogue instead of the truly remarkable characters she's crafted from each clone but it's impossible to deny the pure entertainment factor of Orphan Black.

I'll always value how Orphan Black's ability to shift and combine genres - sometimes in the same scene - kept me hooked through the first season while supercharging the second.

Orphan Black is a very dense show, and I mean that in a good way.

There is not a better performance-magic trick?-on television right now than watching Maslany break herself into a multitude that's learning it might be one.

Thanks to its creators' verve and its star's zest, Orphan Black feels electric, sky-high on its own supply.

One thing is certain, with Maslany's impressive acting gymnastics at its center, Orphan Black continues to be a highly rewarding viewing experience.

It was a thrilling hour and we've only just begun!

Apr 21, 2014 | Rating: 4.8/5 | Full Review…

Going into the second season, expectations are high and if the first episode is any indication, we're in for an exciting ride.

Apr 21, 2014 | Full Review…

I would like some more questions answered, but the thrill of the chase will do just fine for now.

Audience Reviews for Orphan Black: Season 2

Season 2 got much sillier, but I'm still decently interested. Season 3 looks like it might be about to aim a little too high for its own good


Super Reviewer


Continues the same trend of S01 but doesn't really add anything relevant or interesting to the mix. It just adds some really boring and ultimately pointless villains that are a mix of mormons and god knows what else. Some extra clones would be interesting but they're few and don't cause much impact on the end. The final couple of scenes hold some promise to the future, but Orphan Black doesn't really get to the big league on S02, it's just fairly entertaining tv.
