The 42cast Episode 87: Sestrahood of the Traveling Genes

Orphan Black

Orphan Black was a series that aired on BBC America. Starring Tatiana Maslany it followed the lives of a group of women who discovered that they were clones. In this episode we take a look back at Orphan Black. We talk about our favorite clones and discuss how her performance, and the technical aspects of the production created the most authentic seeming multi-character performance on television. Nathan and Ryan get into the nature vs nurture debate and how the show weighs in on it. We also talk about diversity in casting, characters and storylines that didn’t work, and whether or not it’s fair to say that the series rebooted itself every season.

Our Five-Minute-Controversy this week asks if the tank top look for Thanos in Infinity War looked ridiculous.

This week Beth, Anji, and Ryan join the cast.
