Come, Let’s Have A Brainy Discussion About Orphan Black’s Philosophical Themes [Video]

You're Damn Right

Orphan Black has inspired a great many mind-bending debates, but never have I seen the rabbit hole go quite this deep. PBS Idea Channel’s Mike Rugnetta dives into the idea that Orphan Black is a story about simulacra — copies without reference to an original. And if that concept doesn’t hurt your brain enough, this video poses the idea that we are all, in a way, simulacra. I apologize for the headache I’ve just passed along.
