Buffy the Vampire Slayer is an incredibly clever, complex and extraordinary show, contributing to the birth of female empowerment portrayed in television and constructing positive role models for young women in particular. The show was born in a still very traditional patriarchal society, and has since created characters such as Buffy and her fellow friends and allies for female audiences to idolise and adore - “these stories give people strength”. Along with the establishment of the first long-term lesbian relationship to be seen on network television, Joss Whedon and Buffy have taken an enormous step towards equality, a necessity enabling survival in the modern day world.

shooting-star-summit asked: Is Orphan Black worth watching?

onegirlinalltheworld:

ABSOLUTELY IT IS.

it would take me probably days to extol all the virtues of this show but in a nutshell:

  • LADIES IN SPADES. the show eats the bechdel test for breakfast lunch and dinner. it also fails the reverse bechdel test in pretty much every episode. as one of its creators, graeme manson, put it: “women in their multitudes is something that needs to be seen more than men in their multitudes.”
  • EXCELLENT PLOTTING. you’ll get this right from the pilot - episodes are fast-paced, exciting and complicated. you have to pay attention, but you’ll love it.
  • IMPORTANT THEMES. orphan black is centered around the concepts of women, their bodies, and their identities. they’ve done an excellent job in crafting a story that allows them to bring women’s agency and body ownership into the collective consciousness. 
  • TATIANA MASLANY. she’s the lead actress, who plays several main characters on the show and is probably one of the best actresses i’ve ever had the privilege to watch. this has been talked about and talked about so i don’t want to bore you to death with it, but as the excellent tom and lorenzo put it: "Once you settle into the show (and we obviously recommend that you should), you’ll have these truly revelatory moments where you realize you’ve been watching one person play an entire multiple-character scene by herself and you totally forgot about it. You really have to work to remind yourself that Cosima, Sarah, Alison, Helena and Rachel are all played by the same actress." (that link goes to their review of the season 2 premiere, so don’t scroll too far down if you don’t want to be spoiled.)
  • DIVERSITY. which you wouldn’t really expect from a show about clones, but it’s true. there’s is exactly 1 straight white dude on this show and they call him “big dick paul” which… is really all you need to know to be honest.

watch away, friend. you will be delighted.
