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

Excellent show
16 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is SO good. Acting is amazing. The plot is original. It is much better than any US TV shows I have watched. I already watched this one twice. Tatiana Maslany is such a talented actress, she has given each role a convincing and characteristic feature. Jordan Gavaris's acting is also amazing. He adds much fun and life to the show. I think they all deserve Emmy Awards! So does the show! Everybody in the show is great. I have told all my friends about this show. I think in general, BBC TV shows are much better than American TV shows.

Please excuse my English since i am not a native speaker.

PS. Your "the minimum length for reviews is 10 lines of text" policy is pushing people like me, who want to write a review but can not write a lot, away. I hope you can get rid of this non-sense policy so more people can write reviews.
