The C-Word: How Canadian is Orphan Black?
As a Canadian, I’m incredibly proud of Orphan Black. I’m a fan of genre television in general and it’s an area in which Canada has been quietly excelling in recent years, but Orphan Black is simply a step above any other program on air. It’s slick, smart, beautifully produced, and founded on a multitude of incredibly moving performances by Canadian Treasure Tatiana Maslany.
Unfortunately international media doesn’t really seem to be aware that Orphan Black is actually BBC America/Space co-production, a show created by, written and directed by, and starring Canadian talent. That’s just got to be remedied, preferable before the start of season two (Saturday!!) So let’s do a run down of the most awesomely Canadian things about Orphan Black!
