Send in the Clones and Binge Watch Orphan Black
Season 2 of Orphan Black airs April 19th and you may be asking yourself, “Self, should I binge watch the first season so that I'm ready to tune in to Season 2, or should I let this series pass me by like I did (insert series everyone tells you to watch but you’re too far behind now to ever catch up)?”
Well, we watched all 10 episodes of the first season in a couple of days last week and we have some thoughts.
We got hooked from the first scene where we meet Sarah Manning, not to be confused with Sarah Connor from The Terminator or Taryn Manning from Orange Is The New Black. Sarah witnesses a woman jump in front of a train after they make eye contact long enough for Sarah to see that they look exactly alike. Sarah then assumes her double's life and finds out that they were, in fact, clones.
Meet the Clones (and their friends)!

Deborah: I love her style
Vikki: I love her black boots.
Deborah: My favorite scenes so far have been when Sarah is playing Beth. Sarah was a better Beth than Beth was a Beth.
Vikki: Yes! I prefer Sarah as Beth to Sarah as Sarah.
Deborah: I also don’t mind Sarah as Beth in Beth’s underwear.
Vikki: Huh. I like Sarah as Beth in her pea coat and jackboots. I don’t even remember her in underwear.
Deborah: You don't remember her in the black panties?
Vikki: I’m the worst lesbian ever.
