Orphan Black

 orphan black1

Orphan Black is a BBC America show about an unknown number of clones (at least 6) who learn they’ve been targeted for assassination. The clones, played by Tatiana Maslany, all have distinct personalities and backgrounds (and accents). While having the same actor play multiple characters usually yields hit-or-miss results, Maslany pulls it off beautifully. But the show is much more than just a showcase for Maslany. The supporting cast, writing and especially the direction all come together to create a gripping adventure of constantly escalating tension.

If you missed the 1st season, be sure to catch up before the season two premiere on April 19.
