Even when Orphan Black (BBC America, Thursdays, 10/9C) lightens up on the mythology to go for seemingly straightforward character stuff, it’s still twisted and complex.
The Antisocialism of Sex is one such episode as Sarah seeks to drown her guilt in sex and drugs and booze; Cosima attempts a bit of crazy science; Alison tries to give her daughter Gemma a great birthday slumber party, and Rachel is freed from her cozy prison.
We’re not even halfway into season four of Orphan Black (BBC America, Thursday, 10/9C) and the revelations have come flooding from the minds of the show’s creators like a monsoon. We’ve learned there’s another clone, MK, who was working with Beth; we’ve learned there’s another Castor clone, Ira; we’ve learned that Charlotte was cloned from Rachel (so, a second-generation clone), and so much more.
In this week’s episode, the hits just keep on coming…
If, like me, your appetite has been whetted by the fourth season premiere of BBC America’s Orphan Black and can’t wait to get the home video to find out what the creative was thinking as they put the season together, it will come as a pleasant surprise to learn that Orphan Black: Season Four will be available (in DVD and Blu-ray) on July 19th. Follow the jump for details.
And Doctor Who fans (where there’s a substantial overlap with Clone Club fans) will be pleased to know that seasons one and two of the new series will be coming out on Blu-ray in June and August, respectively.
Other titles coming up include: Thirteen, Moone Boy: The Complete Collection, Wallander: Season Four, DCI Banks: Season Four, Death in Paradise: Season Four, Silent Witness: Season Three and They Will Have To Kill Us First.
Orphan Black (BBC America, Thursdays, 10/9C) returns with a bang as – like the worm Ouroboros that encircled the world and swallowed its own tail – we return to the beginning. Well, actually, to before the beginning.
As the previously released teaser shows, we begin with a sheep-masked individual witnessing two EMTs burying a body, following which she calls Detective Beth Childs – the woman whose suicide prompted Sarah Manning to steal her identity in the series premiere. We learn that the caller is M.K. – yet another clone! And then… well, it gets weird!
Orphan Black returns on Thursday, April 14th (11/10C) and Clone Club fans will be counting the seconds after viewing the first four minutes of the fourth season premiere. Trust me – and check it out after the jump.
The circle is almost complete. For Sarah and her sisters, the only way forward to return to the past – figuratively, speaking. So, it’s back to Neolution when Orphan Black returns – on a new date and time – on Thursday, April 14th (10/9C).
Follow the jump to view the new trailer, get caught up on what has gone on thus far, and meet the epic cast.
The Clone Club returns on Thursday, April 14th (10/9C) (Clone Clubbers don’t watch Grey’s Anatomy, right?). That’s right – BBC America is so confident about the show and its fans that its moving Orphan Black to the busiest night of the week.
Of course, the show is returning after some of the biggest cliffhanging moments of its run: Delphine has been shot; Rachel has been reunited with her mother; and an old foe – thought to have been dealt with – has returned to reveal itself to be the Big Bad behind the Big Bad! All this and Ferdinand, too! Confused? You won’t be after the fourth season premiere of Orphan Black!
For – including a very cool new trailer – more follow the jump.
Orphan Black – returning to BBC America in April – has a decidedly Lewis Carroll-ish new trailer. It’s entitled Down the Rabbit Hole and provides glimpses of what lies ahead. Poor Alice… I mean Beth… I mean Sarah!

The proliferation of quality genre projects – Sci-fi, fantasy, horror, comics – that are available on TV have grown almost exponentially over the last few years. And while there are networks that are geared specifically to genre TV, a great deal of quality stuff can be found on the broadcast networks, the future of the Movie Box is here!
This year, I’ve decided to place genre offerings on a separate list just to highlight how much good stuff is out there for fans of every genre. So, from The Doctor to Jessica Jones, from Supergirl to the Winchesters, follow the jump to my first annual Favorite Fifteen for Genre TV.
Canadian sci-fi network Space has released a new teaser for season four of Orphan Black.It features a figure – presumably new clone M.K. – running through the woods.
Details from BBC America note the return of Ari Millen as a surprising new Castor clone, James Frain as idiosyncratic ‘cleaner’ Ferdinand, Allison Steadman’s ‘original’ – Kendall Malone, and Rosemary Dunsmore as Susuan Duncan. New to the show is Joel Thomas Hynes as Dizzy, an edgy, self-reliant hacker who doesn’t conform to group mentality.
Check out the new teaser after the break. Orphan Black returns in April, 2016.
