Critic Reviews for Orphan Black: Season 2

All Critics (39) | Top Critics (21)

Sorry to say, the sometimes arbitrary storytelling, the lackadaisical direction, the reliance on coincidence and miraculous plot turns all undermine the drama. Maslany deserves better.

Maslany is so good here that one wishes she wasn't so often forced to deal with exposition in her dialogue instead of the truly remarkable characters she's crafted from each clone but it's impossible to deny the pure entertainment factor of Orphan Black.

I'll always value how Orphan Black's ability to shift and combine genres - sometimes in the same scene - kept me hooked through the first season while supercharging the second.

Orphan Black is a very dense show, and I mean that in a good way.

April 18, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

There is not a better performance-magic trick?-on television right now than watching Maslany break herself into a multitude that's learning it might be one.

Thanks to its creators' verve and its star's zest, Orphan Black feels electric, sky-high on its own supply.

Season 2 got much sillier, but I'm still decently interested. Season 3 looks like it might be about to aim a little too high for its own good
