Two of them can't have children, possibly three considering Kisema didn't think that the other two being barren was unsurprising, which means that there might have been a good reason that Sarah was not gelded.
Obviously, it was her job to give birth to the special child that will allow the human race and clone race to merge and live on. (All this has happened before...)
I wouldn't be surprised if we find out she didn't actually give birth to the child. She could be a clone of a clone.

They faked 9 months of pregnancy by nightly sleepfeeding Sarah a dozen cheeseburgers after dark?

There's a lot of weirdness going on, that's all I'm saying. Planted memories, hypnosis, could be options.

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

Tonight's ep was like a twisted episode of The Patty Duke show. "Cathy, you pretend to be me and torture my boyfriend!"

I hope this doesn't become an every-episode thing. Tatiana's got a big enough job just playing all the clones. Playing the clones playing each other's gonna make her head explode...

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

That was like a Chekov Comedy, or any episode of Frasier.



There was a jump the shark potential moment when I saw Mat Frewer.

Please keep your Australian accent in check please.

(TV's) Flash Gordon was also there, and the lead of the Canadian comedy Insecurity played his wife.

Poor Vic took a pistol to a nail gun fight.

If Mat Frewer is behind everything, then the clones are converging is by his design, which means that Mrs S is, or was Sarah's monitor, because it was she who decided to move the family to... Are they inuniverse in Toronto or pretending Toronto is a US city?

That is unless Matt's character is just taking advantage of the QUICKENING... Gathering, whatever.

Are they going to go onto Vic's feet or back to the first hand again?

Taitiana is an odd height, or the casting director is paying no attention to these things... She's barely half a head taller than Allison's children, and two heads shorter than her Amazon barbie doll friends from across the street.

Short people are usually tight wads of rage jerky.

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

This show is like watching a stage act spinning plates. You keep watching them add more just waiting for it to come all crashing down.

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

Oh I agree... And then Vic turned up, and then Paul turned up, I was ecstatic!

They answered my question in part about Kisema's glasses... Can you imagine that Sarah is too punk to wear glasses and has been going through this entire adventure half blind just believing any one of the porridge faces in front of her claiming to be her identical twin isn't a misleading conjob porridge face?

That's exactly how I felt! I was like "Oh so this is the "Orphan Black: the Sitcom" episode

I loved it, but then again it's always fun watching Taitiana playing multiple characters. I'm glad to see psycho clone shows up again next week.

As for the clones, if this show is renewed for a second season, does that mean more Taitiana clones? Or perhaps we follow another woman and her clones?

This was the first time it really dawned on me that the actress is interacting with herself. Well acted and well shot.

It was for me as well. Which actually took me out of the episode for a second as I realized I was watching clever camera angles and special effects. But then it all smoothed out again and I was lost in the show again

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

Yeah, they overstepped when Sarah tried to take the glass of liquor from psycho-mom (what's her name again?). That bit just looked oh so much like the production team screaming "look how clever we are with the visual effects!"

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

I was more thinking about how alcohol tolerance is about nurture not nature Sojurner.

Sarah can drink all night long, snort some cocaine, drink some more and be almost practically fine.

Allison passes out after three glasses of wine.

Orphan Black has already been renewed Aldo.

I read the same link you did, and I knew it was coming back, yet I wrote "If it's renewed..." not sure why I did that at all

Anyways, I wonder how much of the mystery will be solved, I believe we have about four episodes left, so the finale of this should hit one week after the Doctor Who finale. My Saturdays will be free again to go out and date

Who am I kidding, I don't date.

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

Everytime your mother causally mentions someone approximately your age inside their friend sphere, so and so's daughter, or such and such's grand daughter... You're supposed to say "Yes please, I'd like some of that."

20 -25 is when every one is trying to get married, but that all falls apart because they're children making stupid decisions, so you got all these men and women coming fresh out of their first marriage looking for something casual between 32 and 38... They don't want to get married again till their 40's when they finally come to terms that most of them are going to make it to 80 and they need some one to clean their ass and pick up their medication.
