This work is intended to investigate how the TV series Orphan Black (BBC America, 2013) reverberates in the mind of the spectator who assists it, how it interferes - if it does - in their sensory and perceptive ability, which subjectives resonances are caused, in short, what kind of senses's production is performed in the spectator's mental process, which can bring him/her to reset opinions, behavior and positions. To this purpose, it will be used, such as research procedure, the metaporic proposal, in the form in which it is presented by the New Theory of Communication, presented by the Center for Philosophical Studies of the Communication, "FiloCom", of the School of Communications and Arts of USP. The study will focus more specifically on the interfaces that permeate the relationship of identity of those that we call "I-spectator", in his/her relationship with the otherness (with the other people or with other objects), at the moment of the experience that is called "communicational event" within a television product. The results of this research will be compared with the propositions in the theoretical field, particularly those that carry out a reflection about the sensitive as starting point to understand what goes through the perception of the viewer in his/her relationship with the series. Therefore, the works of Kirchof (2003), Bergson (2006) and Deleuze (2007a) will be revisited. To substantiate the formation of identity and it's production of alterity, we're going to use Hall, (2006), Bhabha (1998), Bauman (2005), Buber (2001), Silva (2011) and Woodward (2011). Finally, this study will also research the serial structure and strategies of narrative television series based on authors as Umberto Eco (1989), Arlindo Machado (2005), Mittell (2012), Gerbase (2014), Balogh (2002) and Rodrigues (2014).
