What do you think? Do you still like the Orphan Black TV series? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for a fifth season?
Do not cancel this, it is soooo exciting!! I have binged watched all four seasons in ten days!! I am so glad my sister told me about this show!!
I don’t think this show should be cancelled. It is smart and cool, funny and provocative and addresses some real social issues. Plus it is just flat out entertaining as hell. I wish it would go on for anther 5 years. I just love the sestras!
Yes definitely the show should be renewed for as long as they can I love it. Plus, whatever happened to the Clone I think his name was Tony I believe he was transgender? I think Felix and Art chose to keep him from Sarah. I don’t know much about the science or anything like that however, couldn’t he possibly be a candidate for Cosima since that he has both female and male hormones ? Please don’t “hate “, I already admitted to not knowing the actual science part of that but it would seem that it would be a possibility?
No,Antoinette-turned-Toni was taking artificial hormone injections but wasn’t biologically more male than the sisters.(And Sarah was there).
Orphan Black should be renewed. There are still stories that could be told .
Crystal and MK needs to join Clone Club and get to know their sisters.
How would their lives change if the world discovered that they are clones?
Need to renew for 10 years.. this is a very original and edgy show that does not do scenes just to do some slack proof of being involved socially, they address real things that are in the near future for us all, and pressing issues that are already here. Season 4 they changed the day of the show, not many survive that, but you look at the internet be it facebook, twitter, or any other social media, there is a huge loyal fan base. When they add up the online viewing and the international viewings we have a very large… Read more »
This show is my favorite show of all time. PLEASE don’t cancel it.
First season was excelent. It got very complicated and hard to believe in season 2. I abandoned it in season 3.
Renew- its still a great show, they killed off a beloved character last season and switched to Thursdays which may have had an impact on ratings. But online comments from fans seem to indicate they are reengaging. I don’t have cable, but I did buy season 4 on iTunes .
I think this is one of their stronger seasons since the first one. Just look at the on-line buzz from #CloneClub after each episode. I agree that the switch to Thursday night may not have been the best. But I always watch it after downloading it from iTunes.
I’m still loving this show. I just wish that they didn’t switch the night that it is on, this season.
We’ve watched this show from the beginning. Wasn’t thrilled with last season, but we are NOT pleased with where this is headed this season. So, it is no longer set-up to record this new season. In the beginning it was a clever premise, but it really jumped the shark many episodes ago. And why? We’re done.
How exactly has the show “jumped the shark”? I wish people knew what they were talking about when they use catchphrases like that. If you can’t understand what “jumping the shark” means, this show is probably too complicated for you.
I stopped watching just before the season finale this season(which turned out to be the most-watched episode of the season) because they had Delphine turn out to be alive,which makes 3 out of 3 season finale deaths all turning out to be fake the next season.If they’re going to fake out viewers that dependably it’s not worth getting emotionally invested.
