Critic Consensus: Anchored by Tatiana Maslany's brilliant multi-role performance, Orphan Black is as densely-layered, thought-provoking, and wildly entertaining as ever.

Orphan Black continues to prove just how compelling a story centered on several strong female characters can be, particularly when it so readily explores sexual and gender identity alongside an intricate plot and complex characterizations.
Part of what makes Orphan Black so appealing is, like Sherlock, its comfort in shifting the tone of the story so suddenly.
This was a solid episode but not as good as last weeks. We finally meet a new Clone, Allison and Donnie deal with fall out from last week's revelations and Cosima gets sicker.
Orphan Black self-consciously apes Maslany's multiple-personality routine, switching between a dizzying array of genres but injecting them all with almost-subversive humanity and humor.
Orphan Black remains high-order lo-fi sci-fi, brilliantly engineered for dynamic multiplicity - feminist allegory, conspiracy thriller, cheeky satire - electrified by Tatiana Maslany's all-star performance(s).
Audience Reviews for Orphan Black: Season 2
Season 2 got much sillier, but I'm still decently interested. Season 3 looks like it might be about to aim a little too high for its own good
Continues the same trend of S01 but doesn't really add anything relevant or interesting to the mix. It just adds some really boring and ultimately pointless villains that are a mix of mormons and god knows what else. Some extra clones would be interesting but they're few and don't cause much impact on the end. The final couple of scenes hold some promise to the future, but Orphan Black doesn't really get to the big league on S02, it's just fairly entertaining tv.
