DVD Review: Orphan Black Series Three
The first series of Orphan Black was amazing, original, edge of your seats TV. The second series was good, but seemed to loose a little direction, until the cliffhanger final. The third series comes with much anticipation, and hopes for a more engaging time.
Series three fortunately doesn’t disappoint. It’s essentially Clone CLub vs Project Castor, and once Sarah makes the decision to send her daughter Kira into hiding, and thus disabling the easy to fall back onto storyline of protect the child, things get pleasantly interesting.
Despite the seemingly anti family focus of sending ones child into hiding, this season is all about family, especially for the female clones who realsie just how important they are to each other, and how important their support networks are to each other as well. The season even kicks off with the bizarre dream sequence in which crazy Russian clone Helena dreams of her sestras throwing her a baby shower.
This is in stark contrast to the aims of the Castor boys whose weird behaviour is soon uncovered as something very sinister. But just when the season seems to be wrapping up nicely and you’re just getting your head around the concepts again, Orphan Black gioes and throws a curve ball so out there you didn;lt see it coming. But it’s thrown in such a way as to make perfect sense and have you gasping for Series Four.
