Orphan Black‘s third season is fast approaching, and while I’m still really into this show, I’m worried that it’s going to end up suffering from one of the major complaints I had about The Hobbit movies: that there are just too many characters. In this trailer we can clearly see that Mark, one of our heroes’ pursuers, is in fact a clone. So we’re going to have about a dozen clone characters running around played by only two actors. Guys, it’s time to start killing them off. It’s not like you’re going to be getting rid of a talented actor in the process: the actors will still have many, many clones to play. Initially, I thought one of the best things about Orphan Black was going to be the fact that anyone could be killed at any moment, since they were all being played by the same actor. Sadly, that hasn’t been the case. So, uh, let’s raise the stakes a bit, shall we? I think it’s time for Cosima to go, at least, even if she’s my favourite of the bunch.
Orphan Black starts again on April 18, 2015.
