Orphan Black

Orphan Black

Last week, Orphan Black returned with a bang.  After the cliffhanger revelation of Season 2, the series wasted no time in showing just how different the male clones are from the female clones and man, are they different!  The series is known for its many twists and turns throughout the story and if the first episode of Season 3 is any indication, the show will remain true to form.  We had a chance to sit down with some of the cast and crew to pick their brains about the upcoming season and they were more than happy to dish on what fans can expect from the series.  Well, as far as they were allowed to divulge, of course.

There hasn’t been any good news for the Clone Club lately. Word has it that the Orphan Black creators totally spoiled next season’s finale. Nice going, creators. And fans are still hurting inside over star Tatiana Maslany’s Emmys snub. Or, that is to say, her second snub in two years. Tracking the footsteps of a pretty respectable season 2, it goes without saying that the show and its loyal followers are due for some good news. As if having a television sci-fi drama about a top secret clone factory wasn’t cool enough, things are about to get about ten times nerdier. If comics group IDW have their way, we’ll all soon be rolling up Sarah Manning and her “sestras” and sticking them in our back pockets! Sound like good news to you? (more…)

It was exactly one year ago that a little TV show called Orphan Black came to Toronto ComiCon for some pre-release buzz; the panel took place in a small room and maybe a couple of dozen curious fans came in. Fast-forward a year and there are enough Orphan Black fans to fill one of the biggest panel rooms, and then some. This was the scene for series’ stars Tatiana Maslany and Jordan Gavaris on Saturday afternoon. In front of a standing room only crowd of (predominantly) female fans, Maslany and Gavaris recalled their roller coaster first season and teased the highly anticipated season two. (more…)

It was an exceptional year for TV, and that extended to the types of series that have a unique appeal to the nerdy brood. Some shows got better and some shows did actually lose a bit of quality. Some new shows dazzled out of the gate, and some shows disappointed despite our greatest hopes. But for the discerning viewer there was more to get excited about then there was to watch begrudgingly, and as we look to the year 2014, we are reaffirmed in our faith that there’s never been a better time to be nerdy. Submitted for your approval, the Top 10 Nerdy TV shows of 2013 from Nerd Bastards. (more…)

For Entertainment Weekly‘s special Comic Con issue, they’re pulling out all the stops with four different covers of pretty big-name things: The Amazing Spider-Man 2, the remake of the Stephen King novel, Carrie, Ender’s Game and Orphan Black.  Each cover corresponds to a story within the issue.

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 cover has got Andrew Garfield‘s Spidey and Jamie Foxx‘s Electro gracing it.  We can assume that this gives us a first glance at the finalized visual effect for Electro.  What do you guys think?

This is a little snippet of the corresponding EW article:

“You can feel it,” says Webb. “People aren’t scared. With the first one I felt it was important to retell that origin story. But that was kind of brutal because people were so familiar with it. Now that the origin story is done? We’re off to the races. It’s incredibly liberating.”
