Orphan Black - Season 3 Discussion



Who's excited for the new season to start in 3 weeks. I know I am, but this year I've only just watched trailers and nothing else. I want to go into the new season kind of spoiler free and really interested in how they're going to go with this Castor storyline. I really hope we get more stuff on Paul and Mrs. S, who I really want to see fleshed out more. They still seem to be mysteries and I still think there was a deleted scene where Paul got back into the Military to end Season 2.

I'm so excited for the new season I'm going to start a OB rewatch. Need to refresh my memory of things that happened so far. Also, it will be nice to reacquaint myself with the greatness that is Tatiana Maslany again.

Extremely. I only got into the show a few months ago, so this will be my first time watching the show new and not avoiding discussion threads for fear of spoilers.

Looking forward to it. Season 2 officially comes out in the UK on dvd/blu next month I believe.

Hopefully, that means that season 3 won't be far behind here

Re: Orphan Black - Season 3 Discussion

I can't wait for this to start up again; hubby and I both love this series. I love the "clone club," especially Alison and Cosima. Hubby likes crazy Helena. It still strikes me as odd that they are all played by the same person!

I look forward to meeting the new male "clone club." This should be a very interesting season.

Re: Orphan Black - Season 3 Discussion

Bbc America released a clip from the premiere today and I'm really looking forward to the Castor storyline. From what I've seen so far, it seems like Ari Miilen is able to pull this off. I do hope it doesn't become male centric though. One of the things I do love about this series is its allowing "female power", as it were.

Starting April 6, the rewatch begins. An episode a day for 2 weeks, leading right in to S3.

The Castor storyline should be good, but the focus needs to stay on Tatiana.

I agree. I hope that Castor is more used as a threat to the female clones, than a full part of the show, if that makes sense.

Based on the clip I saw, it looks like that is the case. I do worry though the same I worried about at the end of the season last year. Is 10 episodes enough time to tell the story and flesh out the characters in a Season? I wish it was like 15.

If the show were any less fast-paced, they might need more episodes.

I can't think of any show that wastes no time the way OB does.

Still, I would like 15 eps. It wouldn't be over so quickly.

You can still keep up the pace but flesh out the characters. I get maybe it's supposed to keep Paul and Mrs. S a mystery, but it seems like Paul is the least developed character on the series. One minute his paying back a debt to Dyad to get his life back, and the next minute he's back in the military. I'm actually rewatching the series (Made it to the 7th episode of the first season) and Paul is starting to make some sense but it was never really revealed he's still military, only Olivier told him that by getting his life back he could go back to active duty.

Also, a 15 episode season would provide more OB and then the year wait might be more worth it.

Re: Orphan Black - Season 3 Discussion

Anyone reading the comic that's just came out (on issue 2 right now). It's decent, though so far it seems more concerned with filling in the blanks to stuff we already saw than giving us anything ground breaking. To be fair though, that's kind of the point of it, and it's also creator approved (and I think they offer notes too).

I haven't read the comics, but I was thinking the other day how great it would be if we got a prequel movie showing Beth, Katjia, Alison and Cosima leading up to the suicide. I get this sense we're not done learning why Beth jumped yet, and I would love to see Beth in action. That almost seems begging for a prequel something.

Re: Orphan Black - Season 3 Discussion

So far the comic is just covering Sarah, Helena, and Alison (in issues 1, 2 and 3 respectively). But who knows, in the future they could do one on Beth.
