Those who have never seen the show will find this the easiest place to pick it up since the pilot, and those who have been along since the beginning have a series again playing to its strengths. The biggest asset is still the one that gives the show its essence: Tatiana Maslany’s performance remains superlative.

Keeping it in the family, so to speak, could rejuvenate Orphan Black if you thought it maybe needed it. For everybody else who remained joyfully entertained by the story and by Maslany's many roles, this slight rejiggering does clear up some distractions and brings back fond memories of season one when this show was such a revelation.

The first three episodes of Season 4 are all great, but “The Collapse of Nature” might be one of the strongest and most satisfying season premieres I’ve ever seen.

Orphan Black‘s return is satisfyingly in tune with itself in a way that not only makes sense thematically with what’s been seen so far on the show--and where we left off with the characters--but satisfies in a purely dramatic, top-tier television sort of way.

This duplication of season 1’s structure includes slow-burning supporting clones Cosima and Alison and makes them relevant to Sarah’s work, but subplot is at a minimum. Cloning the past to supercharge the present? That’s very clever, Orphan Black. For now.
