My Favorite Things of 2017 - Day #3

Day three of my favorite things of 2017, and we say goodbye to a TV show that has been a perennial entry on this list for each of its five years.

Orphan Black, produced by BBC America, has been some of the best written, smartest, well produced, and most underrated science fiction ever created for TV.



More than a little sad that it's over.

At least it went out well. The final season was strong, it avoided much of the LOST syndrome it may have suffered from (in that it actually answered a bunch of questions), and managed to find an ending that really worked for this show. The final episodes were a great lesson in how to wrap up a narrative arc in a satisfying way.

Tatiana Maslany's performances, she plays all of the various clones on the show, is still a remarkable feat. She managed to cram so much character into each of the clones. As a lesson in character acting it's nothing short of inspirational. 

I won't spoil it for those that want to go back and binge the entire thing (and if you missed it, that is something that you absolutely should do), but suffice to say that I wasn't disappointed. I'm just disappointed that it's all over.
