The trailer for the fifth season of Orphan Black has arrived, and over the past four seasons fans have watched the identical women (all played by Tatiana Maslany) battle a number of increasingly deceitful enemies, which has all lead up to this final season.
The trailer features voice-overs from the characters Sarah, Alison, Cosima, and Helena as it sends us back to the beginning to when Sarah has her first clone encounter with Beth, as she commits suicide by walking in front of an oncoming train.
The clones contemplate in the trailer, “From the very start, they hunted us, controlled us, used us, betrayed us, but they could not break us.” which the trailer reveals during flashbacks to each of their traumatic experiences.
“Now we fight to control our bodies, to love whom we choose. Together we are one,” the clones declare in the trailer.
“The sister clones struggle to be in contact with each other. Some are reunited, one is captured. The camp near Westmoreland’s mansion is called Revival, and it’s a self-sustained community for the next generation of clones. Clone Cosima believes that the answers to her sisters’ survival and existence reside at Revival, and she can’t leave just yet despite the fact that Sarah is looking to rescue her. But chaos abounds on this isle and the question of future-lives hangs by a thread, as another one of Maslany’s clones is injured (not Sarah), and another…injected.”
You can catch the premiere of the fifth and final season of Orphan Black only on BBC America June 10, 2017.

If the second season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer shows us anything, it's a renewed sense of confidence in itself. Like its characters, Buffy is a hell of a lot more sure of itself in its second year. particularly as the season goes on. While "Halloween" showed that this show was more than willing to get silly for an episode, "Bewitched, Bewildered and Bothered" doubles down on that to glorious effect.
It wasn't too long ago that we barely had any new games released on a Nintendo console and now it seems like we can hardly keep up. It's another big week for the Big N with releases of Pokken Tournmanent DX, Thimbleweed Park, Steamworld Dig and so much more.
With the upcoming Super Mario Odyssey being only the third Mario game in the same vein as Super Mario 64 (following Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Sunshine), it is high time to reexamine one of the evergreen staples of the video game canon.
Absolver is a heavy hitter and as such, a lot of its punches are wild swings that miss their target. The ones that do connect, however, leave a lasting impression. A fantastic idea executed competently but, unfortunately, not much more than that.
