Orphan Black is beginning its final season. On Orphan Black (2013)Tatiana Maslany can play up to six characters in a single episode. While they all look similar, each has their own distinct personality and style. Which of the LEDA clones is most like you?

Jen, you need to fix your link from your "Suggestion: Naked Is a State of Mind" list page because it leads eight straight here.

I'm probably most like Cosima. 'Good idea for a poll. I'm going to miss this show. 

I suggest one minor edit:

While they all look similar, each has his or her own distinct personality and style.

Oh, and can you put "Orphan Black" in quotes in the title? It'd be great if the editor who chooses polls for the home page picked this one. :)

Cropping for images #1 is borderline.
Beth Childs

Image #5 does not crop well.
Helena

You may wish to re-arrange your choices to have images that crop well in the first five.

Jen,

I think ElM made a chart that did this and posted it on the official "Home Page Poll" Thread. It'd be great if they did this, I second that.

DC doesn't sort them. That example ElMo posted is what I'm looking for. I would like that to be the SOP for the home page feature list from now on.

Congraduations on the front page poll. However, I'd never watched the show; therefore, I can't vote.

Unfortunately, even though "Orphan Black" is my favorite T.V. show on B.B.C.-America, I haven't been watching any of the 5th and final season, but it isn't because I'm not interested in it anymore or how it ends.  I just didn't see the point in watching it because I can't record any of the episodes onto V.H.S. tapes, and then dub them onto D.V.D. discs, the way that I used to do.  You see, I used to have a combination V.C.R./D.V.D. player & recorder so that I could record my favorite movies and episodes from my favorite T.V. shows, like "O. B.", and put them on discs for my own personal viewing pleasure.  But then my parents switched from Insight Cable-TV to Cincinnati Bell/Fioptics Cable-TV, a new type of cable-t.v. system which they thought would save money on the cable bills, and this cable-t.v. doesn't permit me to record stuff off of it with my V.C.R.  This cable-t.v. system has D.V.R.(Digital Video Recording), which is kind of okay, but it isn't quite the same as watching a D.V.D.  Which is why I'll probably have to wait until both the 4th season(I wasn't able to record any episodes from the 4th season, either) and 5th season of "O. B." comes on D.V.D., and I'll also have to find me a new D.V.D. player to hook up to my HD-TV. 

Now, as far as the show goes, I will say this:  I've enjoyed every single moment of this series, and I am deeply saddened that it won't continue, but I do hope that it will go out in a blaze of glory.  And there's at least one bright side about this show ending, and that's the fact that Tatiana Maslany finally got the accolade that she rightfully deserved since this whole started.  I was beginning to suspect that there was some kind of conspiracy taking place against her getting the recognition that she deserved for her work in this show, because one of the characters that she portrayed on the show was openly gay.  In fact, I even suggested to some people on "TWITTER" that if she didn't win an Emmy this time around, that we should all just boycott the Emmy Awards altogether in protest.  But, fortunately, it didn't turn out the way we all thought.  She did win, finally.  It was probably a monumental moment for her and for all LBGTQs everywhere, although that last part is probably a bit much, you think?

Anyways, all I have to say is, whatever or however this show ends, doesn't matter.  It will definitely live up to everything it was when it first got started, as a real honest-to-goodness thriller-mystery-suspense-action-and-romance type show, with a little bit of science and "WHODUNNIT" thrown in.

Unfortunately, I didn't watch any of the fifth (and final) season of Orphan Black, and I didn't watch the final episode, and so I don't know how it ended.  As I had stated previously, there just didn't seem to be any point in me watching it if I couldn't record the episodes on video tape and then dub the episode onto a D.V.D. disc, the way that I did with the first three seasons of the shows.  And because I don't have a D.V.D. player hooked up to my T.V., and probably won't be getting one after all because there probably isn't a player that's compatible wit my T.V., my days of watching D.V.D. movies are over, and that means no more Orphan Black. "SIGH!"

Blu-rays play D.V.D.s. It just doesn't record them.
