Unless you've been living under a rock for the past year, you've probably heard about the BBC America sci-fi series Orphan Black. Or perhaps you've heard of Tatiana Maslany's amazing performance as not one, not two, not five, but 11+ characters in the show. Hell, she was nominated for a Golden Globe award, which is fairly unheard of for the star of a cable sci-fi series, no matter his or her talent or brilliance.
If you haven't yet had the chance to experience the show's magic, good news: season two starts tonight. You have a whole new season to get invested in the brilliance of Maslany and the insanity of the plot, which follows a group of clones. The bad news, though, is that you've got about 11 hours to watch 10 one-hour episodes. This is doable if you have nothing else to accomplish today and you're reading this post at exactly 10 a.m. EST (the premiere won't air until 9 p.m. EST tonight), but it'll also be ridiculously difficult to pull off unless you are a master of the binge-watch.
Don't worry, those of you who can't lock yourselves in a room and watch the entire first season immediately. We've put together a list of Everything You Need to Know to Watch Orphan Black Season Two before the premiere. If you've never seen the show before, you should definitely still catch up on season one, but, at least this way, you won't be lost tonight.
Let's get started!
