| Mesmerizing!
I am just mesmerized watching the actress play so many roles with such differing mannerisms, personalities and even vocal/linguistic differences. I am in awe of her ability. She absolutely needs to get an award for this performance. The premise is unique and a welcome addition to the sci-fi genre. Truly it is one of the best sci-fi shows I have seen in a very long time. There is mystery, romance, danger and with the promise of more characters to be played by Tatyana Maslany, Orphan Black just has to continue for as many seasons as possible. PLEASE. I love the rest of the cast also, (especially her homosexual foster brother who provides some timely comic moments). The excitement just builds and builds as the season unfolds. Love it.

Trivia

Co-creator John Fawcett on his plans for Orphan Black (2013): "Let's say when we were initially designing this, yes, we were talking about five seasons. We were trying to design a story that would have a beginning, middle, and end. I want to know how the thing ends so that we can be focused on telling a cohesive story. I think that's what's really important. I don't want this to feel like we're just floating around and trying to invent stuff from season to season. It really needs to feel like we have a clear way that we're going forward."


Goofs

In season 1, Cosima confidently refers to the clone experiment being "double blind." However, this is a factual mistake. A double blind experiment is designed such that neither the participants nor the investigators know which participants belong to the test group(s) versus which participants belong to the control group. If this were a double blind experiment, Cosima would have no way of knowing unless she had designed the experiment herself. She would also know that a double blind design requires a control group, whose existence she would likely seek.

More likely is that the experiment is single blind, where the participants do not know the group(s) to which they belong, but the investigators do know. However, once again, Cosima would have no way of knowing this information about the study design unless she were herself an investigator. As a graduate student scientist, realistically, she would at least know the difference between a double blind and single blind design.
