Storyline

SPOILER: Orphan Black follows outsider, orphan and street-wise chameleon Sarah. After witnessing a woman's suicide, Sarah assumes the stranger's identity - who happens to look just like her. Expecting to solve all her problems by cleaning out the dead woman's savings, Sarah is instead thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery as she realizes the dizzying truth - she and the dead woman are clones. As Sarah searches for answers, she discovers the chilling fact that there are more people like her out there - genetically identical individuals who were planted in unsuspecting birth parents and nurtured in completely different circumstances. With no idea who created the clones, she'll need to discover the reason in a hurry as an assassin is killing them one by one. Written by Annonymous

Addictive!
11 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

American Networks could really pick a up more than a few clues about pacing, presentation and marketing some clues from BBA America. Comedy shows aren't really my thing, but I love sci/fi and drama, and have been busy catching up on Orphan Black, Copper, Ripper Street and more. Orphan Black (and can I just say that Tatiana Maslany is amazing and mesmerizing in the lead role) had me hooked from the first commercial I say prior to its premiere Every episode is full or twists and turns and drama. The characters are amazingly well written and completely distinct from each other, but each is acted beautifully, and each complement each other so well that they are each part of the puzzle. Down to the last shot, each is set up and beautifully filmed to the tiniest detail. As this season goes on, the show has not become stale, and each episode provides tiny bits and pieces to add to the whole story. There is no skipping ahead, and I defy anyone to see what's coming next. I DVR all episodes to go back and review past episodes, just in case I missed something. Consistently, i0 out of 10 for each episode and I can not wait to see how this show develops in the future.
