Orphan Black - The Pilot Episode
Show Notes

Happy Wine Wednesday!  We are back with special guest Maddie this week for a discussion of the pilot episode of the critically acclaimed series, Orphan Black.

We kick off the discussion with our Orphan Black "origin stories" in which we share when we started watching the series and what drew us to it.  We then move on to our overall thoughts of the pilot episode.  Unsurprisingly, there was very little we disliked about it.

Next, we do a deep dive into the plot and discuss some Qs that need some As.  What would you do if you saw a woman standing on a subway platform taking off her shoes and putting down her purse?  What level of freaked out would you be if you bumped into a stranger who had your exact same face?  After you come across your doppelgänger, do you let it go or do you pursue more information?  We also unpack the many layers of Sarah's desperation and share our respective thoughts on the point at which she may have gone a little too far in her efforts to claim the money Beth left behind.

No discussion about Orphan Black would be complete without praising the immensely talented Tatiana Maslany.  We also give our best elevator pitch as to why you should keep watching Orphan Black if you have not already watched the series and then things get a little thirsty.

The episode closes with a spoiler segment.  Fear not - you will have lots of warning if you want to avoid them until you watch the series.
