    S05.E03: Beneath Her Heart

    I don't think I'm going to handle the end of this show well. I'm having a hard time with what seems to be Alison's departure and she wasn't even close to my favorite character, that honor going to Sarah. I knew I loved this show but it seems to have really embedded itself into me making it hard to let go.

    They start back up filming at the end of this month, first taping is the 31st. They didn't give away any upcoming storylines. Norman Lear was there and although he looked like they revived him only hours before the panel, apparently he's got enough energy to want a third season.

    I want to say they are starting up again any day now. I'm going to the Paley event this Thursday so I'll report back if they happen to mention it.
  4. I agree with all of this except for your Clay/Maddie opinion. And only because I'm shallow, they would make beautiful babies together who would also be talented as hell. And the age difference doesn't bother me since my first serious boyfriend was about the same age as Clay and I was Maddies age when we dated. True I was a bit more mature, but my mother didn't have any issues with it or him. He was a really great guy so that may have had a lot to do with it.

    Bummer. Hopefully she can make at least one appearance. She's fun. I love her deadpan delivery. It's how I imagine my daughter would have turned out if I had had one. That's actually kind of a frightening thought now that I think about it.

    So excited they got renewed. Not ashamed to admit I've watched season one several times. And laugh my a$$ off STILL. Show is excellent.

    I'm surprised it took them this long. The critics and internet buzz was very positive right out the gate. And the cast has been getting a lot of attention from the press. I'm thrilled, I really love this show.

    I LOVE Carmen was was bummed when she went to Texas. I know the show is about the family and Schnider but she was a really fun addition to their dynamic.

    Orphan Black in the Media

    He did mispronounced her name. Really ridiculous as he's Canadian and honestly, how hard is it to pronounce Tatiana Maslany? I had a moment as well but the stunned look on her face was all it took for it to sink in that she had won. Later I watched Viola Davis and Kerri Russel when they announced her win and they both looked genuinely happy for her. Taraji not so much but she also looked like she hadn't heard of her or maybe has never watched the show to see her competition.

    Kerri was the only one I would have been happy for Tat to lose to. Her work on The Americans has constantly amazed me. Solid work, with such emotion. I had written her off as a one note actress years ago and was so surprised when I watched her on the show.

    Damn right!!!! I had a feeling when the Mr Robot kid won that she was gonna get it. Seemed like there were a few surprises this year. Damn! So happy for her and our little weird show!!!!

    S04.E10: From Dancing Mice to Psychopaths

    I could be wrong, but I think that was by design this season. Sarah was very unlikeable this season, where as other seasons you see her as the underdog. The bad girl turning good for the sake of her sisters. This season, we see her dealing with her demons. Which she has many. For me, an avowed Sarah girl, it made her relatable, unlikable, vulnerable, and a myriad of other things. Mostly, it made her human. The first three seasons, it's like she could do no wrong, even when she was being a lousy mother to Kira, she was the grifter with a heart of gold. This season, I felt like we finally saw the real Sarah, and she's messy, bitchy, not nice, selfish, a druggie, a sex addict, etc. But in this episode we see, she is still willing to risk all for her sisters. It actually makes me love her that much more.

    S04.E03: The Stigmata of Progress

    I think the Carol Lombard reference was meant to have the audience go "Oh Crap!" and think Helena was making it up, when it actually was a real woman, because Alison didn't even respond negatively to the name. If I remember correctly she responded along the lines of "How did she know all that?" which to me meant the names were of real women who were working her campaign. Not unusual for parents to name their kids after famous actors / actors they absolutely love. I'm named for a movie my mother loved about Napoleon's lover. Just don't have the same last name as her.

    S04.E01: The Collapse Of Nature

    Partially, for some local community / school something or other. Partially because Donnie lost his job and they needed the money if I remember correctly.

    Yes, Allison was providing the "little helpers", which she herself also took. She shared them with Felix in the episode that Donnie tried the intervention with the priest. Ramon was her dealer, who she took the business over from when he went off to college. She herself told Sarah that money was the only thing she could contribute. Beth was the cop who investigated, Cosima was the scientist who was looking for answers in their DNA and Allison provided the capital to be able to pay off sources and what not. She never actually said where she got the money from, but later in season 3, we find out that her mother had a soap and candle store. Which really doesn't make a ton of money, it was a small niche store, however, I'd imagine the family has money and that was just a side thing to keep her mother occupied.
