News & Interviews for Orphan Black: Season 4
Orphan Black uses the unique qualities of its narrative, and especially Maslany's tremendous performance, to play with our expectations, to make us question ideas we take for granted.
Orphan Black Season Four is the metaphorical train of the series... From its trips to the past and the development/introductions of characters, everything is coming to a head when the series ends next year.
As a fascinating trip back in time, a refresher course on Neolution, and a new character introduction, "The Collapse of Nature" is a welcome return to what Orphan Black does best.
Though Orphan Black's Season 4 premiere didn't advance the present-day story much, it did offer a good refresher on the Neolutionists and Beth's past -- both of which will likely factor in heavily to the rest of the season.
The creators consistently delivered smart, fascinating twists and turns all throughout the first three seasons, and it looks as though the trend will continue in Season 4.
Orphan Black should be particularly susceptible to this Curse of Meh... Graeme Manson and John Fawcett really have no business starting off the fourth round of Orphan Black so strongly. And yet, they have. With a flashback, no less!
