Well I’ve got to tell you that Orphan Black will draw you in and leave you wanting more.
I’ll be honest and admit that when I first learned the show’s premise, my reaction was “Clones. Meh.” But as I began watching, it quickly turned to “Clones–dang!” Sarah, a grifter, is going about her grifting ways until, as fate would have it, she witnesses a suicide. And not just any suicide–a woman who looks exactly like her jumps in front of a train.
Sarah’s left with no explanation, and the only clues are the woman’s name–Beth–and her handbag left on the platform. Not only does Sarah find out that Beth was a cop, but also that there are more women like her out there.
Someone’s been messing around with cloning technology, and that someone begins to creep into Sarah’s life as her sister-clones are being assassinated one-by-one. Between avoiding a bullet in the head (or worse) and navigating her dual identities (she fills Beth’s shoes in order to find answers), the fast-paced turn of events leave Sarah wishing she had never stepped into this dangerous world.
I really enjoyed the first season, and I know I’m a bit behind, but I hear they’ve been renewed for Season 3 🙂
