Orphan Black, Ep. 3.01, “The Weight of this Combination” stumbles out of the gate

5 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Orphan Black, Season 3, Episode 1, “The Weight of this Combination”

Written by Graeme Manson

Directed by David Frazee

Airs Saturdays at 9pm (Et) on BBC America

This week, on Orphan Black: Helena sees an old friend, Alison considers politics, and Delphine channels her inner Rachel

The season two finale of Orphan Black took a big risk in introducing male clones, theoretically opening up the world and giving star Tatiana Maslany a slightly lessened load moving forward. Maslany’s towering performance has made the series must watch television, for genre fans at the very least, and the prospect of watching another actor explore and embody multiple personas should be exciting. Unfortunately despite a few interesting developments, “The Weight of this Combination” is ultimately disappointing thanks to its mishandling of Project Castor and Ari Millen’s reintroduction to the series as a far more prominent figure.

It may be a ridiculously complicated show now, »

Orphan Black Season 3 Premiere Recap: “The Weight of This Combination”

7 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Orphan Black has done a solid job delving deeper into the science and politics while keeping things fairly grounded, but with a concept like this, you’ll always run the risk of taking things a step too far and losing sight of the humanity of the situation. Season 1 was very much Sarah’s (Tatiana Maslany) story, making it effortless to understand and accept this world of clones and synthetic biology, but season 2 took a different approach. I was completely enraptured by the characters from start to finish, but with Sarah on the run, Alison at rehab, Cosima at the Dyad, Helena with the Proletheans and various other key characters in different locations, the show definitely lost focus. I had hoped the introduction of Project Castor would force the sisters to come together and while it does to a degree, it still doesn’t stop the first episode of the new »

'Orphan Black' Postmortem: Tatiana Maslany Talks "Kill Switches," Break-Ups

7 hours ago | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

[Warning: This post contains spoilers for Orphan Black's season three premiere.] As Orphan Black's third season kicked off Saturday, the stakes for the female clones became rapidly apparent. Although on paper, a kidnapped — and hallucinating — Helena (Tatiana Maslany) was the one in most immediate danger, Sarah (Maslany) was asked to impersonate an injured Rachel (Maslany) at Dyad. Meanwhile, Alison (Maslany) was asked to try her hand at impersonating Sarah — in case anyone became suspicious and wanted to see the "captured" clone. While playing Rachel, Sarah learned the truth of the situation: all of her "sisters" were at

Orphan Black Season 3: Tatiana Maslany Talks New Threats

12 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The BBC America drama series Orphan Black is back for Season 3, in which the clone sisterhood (brilliantly played by Tatiana Maslany), known as Project Leda, will be forced to deal with the fact that they’re no longer alone, as they cross paths with a new group of militaristic male clones (played so chillingly by Ari Millen), known as Project Castor. More shocking twists and turns will arise, and characters will be forced to come into their own more than ever before, if they’re going to survive. During this recent interview with a handful of press outlets, actress Tatiana Maslany talked about Sarah’s relationship with Mrs. S and Paul, the state of Alison and Donnie’s marriage, Delphine and Cosima, whether Tony might return, the male clones of Project Castor, the friendship between Cosima and Felix, the threats of Season 3, a possible Beth flashback, how much she knows about before getting the scripts, »

'Orphan Black' Season 3 Premiere Recap: Where is Helena?

14 hours ago | buddytv.com | See recent BuddyTV news »

The world of clones has expanded on Orphan Black, and the season 3 premiere, "The Weight of This Combination," kicks off the official introduction of Project Castor, which just poses another problem on the long list of things the Leda clones have to worry about already. Being a clone is hard.

As the new season begins, Delphine uses Sarah for Dyad's benefit, whether that means making her talk to Rudy, the Castor clone locked up in Marion's basement, or using her to keep a certain clone's status secret from Topside. The other Leda clones aren't without their own problems; Cosima is sick and loses her girlfriend to Dyad, Alison takes on a new task in the neighborhood and Helena just wants to find her way back to her sisters.

BBC America’s masterful sci-fi show returns for season three Saturday, and here is what you need to know if you plan on catching up

Orphan Black is one of those shows that has a popular and devoted fan base (especially online) and is something that people who have really good taste in television are always evangelising about. After two seasons of having the science-fiction equivalent of Fomo, I decided to watch all 20 episodes before the third season premiere Saturday at 9pm Est on BBC America. Here is what I learned.

Tatiana Maslany 's women of Project Leda, including Sarah, Cosima, Alison and Helena, recently found out they aren't the lone clone project out there, and this season, more men from Project Castor, played by Ari Millen, are coming.

"With the wild types with Leda, it was always a question of nature vs. nurture, but with Castor, the nurture is pretty consistent," Jordan Gavaris, who plays Felix, told Access Hollywood of the background of Ari's clone men. "They are born ...

Interview: Orphan Black's Ari Millen Talks New Clones And Surprises For Season 3

19 hours ago | Twitch | See recent Twitch news »

When Ari Millen started out on Orphan Black in the second season, he was most definitely in the background as supporting character Mark. There's no doubt he had a confident and attention-grabbing screen presence, but there was still little to suggest he'd be involved in one of the most important twists on the show so far, as his one character became many with the revelation of a line of male clones in the Season 2 finale.His character was originally meant to die a few episodes into his arc, and it's no understatement to suggest that Ari essentially worked himself into the role by bringing so much more to Mark than was on the page. Now, though, he's got a big task ahead, continuing to play...

Performer of the Week: Ming-Na Wen

20 hours ago | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

The Performer | Ming-Na Wen

The Show | Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Episode | “Melinda” (April 14)

The Performance | Too often in TV flashbacks, we’re served a marginally different version of a character we already know well. But on this week’s S.H.I.E.L.D., Wen had occasion to inhabit a distinct Melinda May – one who had not yet been dubbed “The Cavalry.”

In the early flashbacks, it was the little things Wen did to distinguish the past May from present. Beaming warmly at husband Andrew as they looked forward to (ahem) “family planning.” Reacting to a Coulson quip with an audible “heh. »

‘Orphan Black’ Season 3: Tatiana Maslany on Male Clones, ‘Strong Female Characters’

17 April 2015 5:25 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Orphan Black” star Tatiana Maslany makes the hardest job on television look effortless — portraying multiple clones on the BBC America drama with such verisimilitude, it’s easy to forget that she’s one actress instead of four.

In season three of the sci-fi hit, premiering Saturday, April 18 at 9 p.m. on BBC America (and across sibling networks AMC, IFC, SundanceTV and We TV) Maslany’s quartet of sisters — Sarah, Alison, Cosima and Helena — are beset by enemies old and new, including a cadre of male clones who were raised by the military in a program called “Project Castor,” all aware of their origins — a marked contrast to Maslany’s “Project Leda” clones.

Ahead of the new season, Variety spoke to Maslany about the impact of the Castor clones, the evolution of her many characters, and the pros and cons of being dubbed a standard-bearer for “strong female characters” on television. »

Is Felix Losing His Funny? Orphan Black's Jordan Gavaris Dishes on a Darker Season 3

17 April 2015 3:01 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Orphan Black's resident comedic relief won't be nearly as funny this season. For the past two seasons, Felix (Jordan Gavaris) has been the character to lighten the mood whenever things threatened to get too dark with our clones, but in the upcoming third season, Felix is going to be just as dark as everyone around him...and he's going to be giving it as good as he's getting it. "Comedy is a tricky thing, and it's something I found within the character because it made sense at the time in his early conception," Gavaris tells E! News. "It made him likeable, and he's a funny guy. But there was always something much deeper going on with him, more complex and truthful, because the »

'Orphan Black' Co-Creator, Stars Promise Answers in Season 3

BBC America's Orphan Black — already one of the most ambitious shows on television — is aiming to take things to the next level in it upcoming third season. The sci-fi drama previously tasked its leading lady, Tatiana Maslany, with playing five clones (Sarah, Alison, Helena, Cosima and Rachel) on a regular basis. And with the season two finale twist that Ari Millen's Mark is a clone from a separate line (dubbed Project Castor), the impact will be felt throughout the series for the foreseeable future.

Orphan Black Season 3 Review

17 April 2015 11:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

This review is based off the first episode of season 3, which was provided to us prior to broadcast.

BBC America’s Orphan Black, a story literally about a woman with multiple versions of herself, has always been a show with multiple identities itself. It can be a comedy, thanks to some nimble writing and gonzo performances. It can be a thriller, due in most part to its inescapably compelling government conspiracy thread that propels most of the show’s big arcs forward, and it can also be, how do I put this… bat-crap crazy, with a season one twist revealing that drifter Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany) and her “sisters” are smack-dab in the middle of an age-old war between a religious extremist group called “The Proletheans” and a pro-science movement who plan on taking evolution into their own hands and call themselves “Neolutionists.”
