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

Goofs

Cosima mentions in season 1 that Katja's fingerprints would be close enough to Sarah's that running Katja's prints through standard police search would pull up Sarah's rap-sheet. No one seems worried that Beth's fingerprints should have been just as similar, and as a police officer her prints would definitely be in the system. Why didn't Sarah's rap-sheet emerge when Beth applied to become a police officer? Why did the system match Katja to Sarah but not to Beth? The system may have matched Sarah to Beth, but other data would not have matched, such as date of birth, place of birth, parents etc. The match would have been seen as a false positive which often occurs in fingerprint matching systems. Even in ten-print matches, depending on what level of search was employed. In many systems, technician intervention is required to eliminate candidate matches. See more »

Amazing Show!
27 May 2013 | by chenoasartSee all my reviews

Wow! Amazing show, so glad I found out about this one today. Happened to run across it while online and sounded interesting so I started watching the first episode and from there I was hooked, watched all 9 current episodes back to back and can't wait for the next one to air!

The lead actress is amazing, to be able to play multiple roles so well, is not an easy task. I was drawn in immediately by the suspense and wondering what was going to happen next.

I can definitely say this one is one on my must watch list. Lots of twists and turns as you go along that keep you interested and wanting to see more. The other characters all do a great job as well. Very well written, and acted.
