Made in Canada

On April 18, the third season of Orphan Black premieres on BBC America.  As a fan, I’m excited enough for two or three people -- maybe even more!  (My fellow fans are either laughing or groaning at that joke.)

For those who haven’t yet discovered this additive series, it’s a science-fiction/thriller/action-adventure show with a little dark humor thrown in for good measure.  The main character, Sarah Manning, is played by the amazingly talented Tatiana Maslany.  But Maslany doesn’t play just Sarah.  To date, she’s also portrayed eight other distinctly different characters.  Same face but different body language, mannerisms, accents for each.  No, they’re not sisters or identical cousins.  They’re -- slight spoiler alert! -- clones.   The series has garnered numerous nominations and awards.  Maslany herself has been nominated for a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild award as well as many other awards.  And she has won the Critics Choice Television Award and Television Critics Award.

One particular thing I like about Orphan Black is that it is filmed and set in Canada (my second favorite country).  In the past, many TV series and movies filmed in Canada were set in the United States.  Today, we in the States are able to watch films and TV shows that call Canada home – on screen as well as off.
