Really good

This programme is really amazing and a great watch. I was constantly on the edge of my seat and I think the acting was incredible. The worst part was the violence and gore, as sometimes it was a little in your face. It was often quite sudden, but that added to the thrill. It also has good LGBT representation which I think is important. This might have been just me but the science side (even if not wholly realistic) was very interesting as well. The sex was moderate, but I think it was pretty infrequent through th series. Overall, amazing programme and I wish there was more for me to watch.

FRIGGIN LOVE IT

I love this show much like this is one of my binge worthy shows! I love it just as much as I love Stranger things, Riverdale, Supernatural, and Vampire Diaries. It’s only been one month and I’m already done with 3 seasons lmao. It’s just so interesting like I am a fan of those type of thrillers that make you not wanna stop watching it or put it down and this is one of them. I can handle violence, I’ve watched Supernatural , It (2017), Bird Box, The Conjuring, Deadpool, and Teen Wolf (show) so this show didn’t bother me that badly. Some violent scenes I did flinch but I didn’t exactly freak out or anything out loud. Tho there are some things teens and adults should know before watching this. The show is definitely not kid friendly or ok for kids to see but teens, teens are allowed it just depends on your teen like as long as they don’t freak out over some parts they should be fine. It’s tv ma for a reason. warning: the show is a little inappropriate (nudity included) so maybe you should look away from some parts. My mom even had to fast forward or move the iPad away from me sometimes. It does piss me off but I can see why she does it. Not all episodes are that sexual neither is the nudity but it is a bit strong. The sex does include stuff like kissings, gay content, and nudity (like I said) sometimes it does show things like butts and the backside of a full naked figure but it’s mostly partial and the first episode might have more and then next few episodes it cuts it down. Some episodes you see Felix naked while painting, his butt is shown at some parts . Mostly it’s just drugs like alcohol, overdoses, smoking as well as marijuana, characters getting drunk, and cocaine which they call “Coke” for short. Profanity isn’t frequent but it is used often so hopefully you don’t mind cussing either. two episodes after the first one, you hear “fuck” once. Other episodes include “dick” “nut” “shit” “bullshit” “damn” “hell” and “bitch”. If you can handle strong violence like any guns, knives, stabbings, gunshots anywhere including the head, any amount of blood, gore, worms in mouth, or other disturbing stuff then you can probably handle this. That’s all I know so far I’m not rlly done with the show but I can guarantee that teens can see just not 13+ early. I’m only 14 and my mom lets me so.

BEST.SHOW.EVER

This show is so intriguing, it makes you watch at the edge of your seat, even though its sci-fi (which i don't usually enjoy) it's great! trust me, give it a chance, if you like mystery... It contains real, sex scenes (even shows butts) so it depends on how well you take sex scenes, bloody violence and mild swearing (like dickhead, shite, damn, arse) There is one particular girl that is a very inspirational role model called Cosima who is a scientist, she makes science sound interesting, teaches you real science without you even noticing until you do it at school! and makes you want to do what she does, which i think is a great thing, because there aren't many females in science these days. You will fall in love with all the good characters, especially the clones

This show is great!

This show is really good. It is great for mature Tweens. This would help them learn about how people deal with their own issues and such. It is violent, but not too violent.

Great story

The story is great and the language in my opinion is not bad. The only problem I have is violence and sex. There is a lot of blood when people fight and many people get killed. The majority of sex scenes are in Season 1 along a few fifty shades esk moments in seaosn 3 and 4. Inferred Rape can also be a problem for some people. However, these did not stop me form watching a really interesting story and great performance by Tatiana Malsany.

Great show but lots of mature themes

Not a family show, a lot of sexual innuendo, gore and drug references. Lots of swear words too.

Dark Thriller

Orphan Black is a complicated, dark series with strong language, sex and violence. Not for the faint-hearted!

Thrilling show I would recommend to everyone!

It is a great show that I couldnt help but binge! It was just so addictive! I watched it with my 17 year old brother and I am now watching it again with my mum. There is only one graphic sex scene in the show and its in the first episode. The violence is actually not as bad as most people say. There is blood, people get shot, stabbed in the eye with a pencil, tail chopped off etc. but it is nothing a mature preteen couldnt handle. I would recommend this show to anyone and everyone, its really good.
