THE SEASON FOUR POST IS RIGHT HERE FOR ANYONE WHO'S INTERESTED.

GAME OF THRONES


What is Game of Thrones?
Game of Thrones is a HBO television series inspired by the novels in "A Song of Ice and Fire" by George R R Martin. The series follows the iron throne, and those who dare to chase its lofty perch. Many different houses persue the throne, or those who have wronged them in pursuit of the throne. Game of Thrones is a bloody and highly sexual race for power, based off the English War of Roses. 

The Houses of Game of Thrones.
There are many houses in the world of Game of Thrones, but the main seven of Westeros are as follows.
House Baratheon, House Bolton, House Targaryen (exiled), House Stark, House Tyrell, House Martell, House Arryn, House Lannister. 
"Survival isn't who you are. It's who you become."



Premise
A century after Earth was made uninhabitable by a nuclear war, the survivors - descendants of the crews of several space stations orbiting at the time - send down a hundred teenagers to the surface in a desperate bid to find out whether it is habitable again. The teenagers, each convicted of (largely petty) crimes and thus "expendable", are now alone on a (supposedly) uninhabited planet while, on the Ark, the adults try and find a way to eke out their dwindling resources. Each group is split by opposing agendas and interpersonal conflicts, fighting to survive not just their environments as well as each other.

BBC America has a "video recap" of Season 1 here (although it's more to refresh the memory of those who watched last year).

Finally, for an awesome discussion of just one of the reasons Orphan Black is so amazing (one of many), I refer you to this fantastic article (which was the catalyst for my own initial viewing of the show):  Orphan Black flips the sci-fi script by putting female agency first

Factoid 1: While Season One's episode titles were taken from chapters of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species, Season Two's titles come from the works of Francis Bacon.
Factoid 2: Season 2 premieres on 19 April, 132 years to the day that Charles Darwin died. Intriguing coincidence ...)

Orphan Black Primer

 Premise

Sarah Manning, a young woman with a less-than-ideal life, witnesses the suicide of a woman who looks exactly like her. Impulsively stealing the dead woman's purse, she decides to take over her identity, only to find that she and her doppelganger are clones -- and they're not the only ones. As Sarah begins to meet up with the other clones, she discovers that there are powerful forces intent on controlling, destroying, or exploiting them.
 

Why Watch?

As you might guess from the cast photo, factoids, and premise, this is a smart, sexy show, driven in equal parts by plot and characterization.

 "Oh, but, clones? Really? All played by the same actress? Too gimmicky!"

Most of us have had the experience of watching a movie or TV series where the special effects are so front-and-center that they keep taking you out of the story as you're watching, thinking "Wow, cool idea!" or "Wow, cool effect!"  ... While there's nothing wrong with  such meta-commentary, it's an exhilarating experience when the inverse happens, when the story and characters sweep you up so completely that you barely notice the SFX supporting them.

Orphan Black is that type is experience for many of its fans. While most go into it knowing it's a sci-fi thriller about clones, its "gimmick" being that they're all played by a single actress (Tatiana Maslany), by the time you see scenes that require two, three, or more of those characters on screen and interacting at the same time, it's likely that your brain has giddily suspended disbelief and will see, not a genuine marvel of acting and camera work, but distinct characters. (You'll frequently see fans saying, "I keep forgetting she plays all of them!")

Don't just take my word for it - Google Orphan Black, and you'll see dozens of "why you should be watching" type articles.

Characters

Actually, I don't think I can improve much on BBCA's character page, so why don't I just link it?
