Saturday is the day that all “Orphan Black” fans have been waiting for in the season 3 premiere, and to help prepare you for that perhaps even more than you are already, BBC America is calling on one of its new corporate friends for a little bit of help: IFC. Starting at midnight on April 17, the entire series starring Tatiana Maslany is going to run in full marathon mode. This means roughly 21 hours in a row of programming, and the season 3 premiere is going to air not only on this network, but on all of them under the AMC Networks banner. This includes We TV, AMC, and Sundance TV to go along with the BBC America home base.
We really cannot imagine that there are going to be many people actually upset about this idea, mostly because it allows for that rare opportunity to either watch or DVR every episode from the beginning. It’s an ideal chance to catch up before you actually watch the premiere itself.
If there are two things that “Orphan Black” still really needs, they include more viewers and also more attention from people within the industry. For some reason, it never quite receives the awards recognition that it deserves. We would like to say that this could be changing in the near future, but in all honesty we’d rather have faith in the show’s quality then in a group of people suddenly recognizing science fiction.
One way or another, we do promise you more thorough coverage of “Orphan Black” season 3 the entire season. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
