Orphan Black 4.4

  • No matter how much sci-fi or conspiracy stuff there is in a typical episode, this remarkable show never loses sight of the heartfelt human emotions driving the characters. There were many touching moments in this hilarious and dark revenge-driven tale. It was cool seeing Ferdinand end up on a bomb, but the real highlights were the scenes where Alison or Donnie talked about their efforts to have a baby, where Helena left, where MK talked about her past, etc.
  • The show never loses sight of the comedy either. So much to love here. Donnie and Felix undercover as a couple? Yes, that was awesome. But the Donnie/Alison phone sex scene is one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. Ever.
