Orphan Black: Season 5 (Final Season)

Orphan Blacks' final season was terribly uneven with disjointed and convoluted first few episodes. Fortunately, things did towards the end and the last two were everything I'd hope for and more. Sure, a 2 hour finale episode - instead of splitting them into two - would've been a more balanced send off to the sestras, but the emotional payoff at the end was outstandingly satisfying. Orphan Black has been a total bumpy yet fun rollercoaster ride the last five episodes, but it was a great series anchored by a sensational set of performances from Tatiana Maslany - I always forget that she's playing 90% of the characters on this show, it's crazy! As much as I don't want to admit it, I will miss the show and the sestras immensely.  Thank you, Orphan Black! You were great!
