Editorial Reviews

Sarah is a streetwise outsider, currently on the run from a bad relationship and painfully separated from her own daughter. When an eerily lookalike stranger commits a shocking suicide right in front of her, Sarah sees a potential solution to all her problems by assuming the dead woman’s identity and clearing out her bank account. But instead, she stumbles headlong into a kaleidoscopic thriller mystery, and soon uncovers an earth-shattering secret: she is a clone. As Sarah searches for answers, she soon learns there are more like her out there, genetically identical individuals, nurtured in wildly different circumstances. And someone is trying to kill them off, one by one.

If ever a TV show needed a no-spoilers review it's this one. The trouble is, everything's a spoiler when "Orphan Black" is concerned, and the less you know going in, the more fun you'll have with this show's onrushing tidal wave of plot twists and turns.

So--what can I tell you that will let you know whether you want to see this or not without spilling all those beans? Well, I'll try.

1. Don't see this if you need glossy, upbeat Hollywoody science fiction. There isn't a single Dudly Do-Right in the entire cast of characters. Everyone has issues. Everyone has baggage. Problems can't always be solved by sweet reason, Star Trek style. And who's a Good Guy or a Bad Guy isn't always clear, even when you learn just who and what they are. And with some of the more damaged characters, they can't necessarily be fixed--ever. Some things you can't come back from. And problems don't have quick fixes. That is, there's no pandering to your inner 12 year old. This is a show for grown-ups.

There is hope, and character growth, and goodness--but not unmixed, and not come by easily. Think about Egon Schindler of Schindler's List--a womanizer, war profiteer, Nazi collaborator--who also saved over 900 Jews. He'd fit right in here.

2. Don't see this if you have to have a saintly, lovable central character who always does the right thing without hesitation. If you're the kind of person who likes to sit in judgement of others, and who thinks nothing in a person's upbringing/environment can excuse anything wrong they do, skip Orphan Black. There's no black and white morality to be had here.

3. Skip this if you need your science fiction to be 100% scientifically plausible.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best beginning to a series. April 9, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I'm hard to impress about TV shows, especially beginnings. First episodes-- even for good ones-- can be awkward, with the cast and writers not yet finding the chemistry.

This one hit managed to hit maximum speed seconds after it began, and then spent the rest of the show proving there was more to spare. Somehow, it did this without sacrificing character development. Thanks to co-creator John Fawcett's taut direction, and remarkable performances by Tatiana Maslani as three physically identical women with distinct personalities, accents and mannerisms. She even plays one mimicking another, with her cockney accent wavering.

The story is about Sarah, a young woman surviving on the margins as a hustler and a drug dealer, who's just walked out on her boyfriend. She witnesses a stranger identical to herself, Beth, commit suicide. Sarah steals and assumes her identity. Despite the fact that Sarah had little to lose, it turns out this was not the best move. The mysterious pink cellphone and a recently loaded savings account hint at the weird secrets that drove Elizabeth to suicide.

The show has one gamble in its structure, that is, Sarah is not a likeable character. Even if you can't warm up to her anti-heroism, you might still enjoy the trouble she brings on herself and still admire the cleverness she shows. Maslani's remarkable performance generates fascination. I expect that as the plot continues to unfold, we'll see Sarah's other better qualities.

Maslani seems like a chameleon, and co-Creator, Fawcett, is the best filmmaker out of Canada, having made the timeless horror movie "Ginger Snaps." I'm hooked. I've already bought it for the rest of the season.

The actress in this series could stand alongside Idris Elba for best actor in a series.
Tight writing like Luther but with a much stranger plot. My wife and I love it. We
are Dr. Who fans and watch a large amount of BBC programing for those who
live the USA. I loved Copper, Luther, Life on Mars, We both loved Coupling, Black's Books,
Fawlty Towers, Red Dwarf and many others. However, after the first episode we turned to each
other and said wow. That was only 45 minutes. The show has so much going on and is so
tightly written as to be a rollercoast of storyline development.

4.0 out of 5 stars Stretches disbelief a bit, but a lot of fun... June 23, 2013

Loved it. Very original story told well with excellent acting. And when you have a soccer mom interrogating her husband with her scrapbooking scissors and a glue gun, well.. what's not to love?

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the same clone. May 14, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Story seems at first to be something you've seen before but quickly intrugued me with its nuances and excelent preformance by the lead actress Tatiana Maslany. I realy believe when she's portraying the diffrent clones on screen at the same time. That they are their own unique characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is there nothing this show can't do? June 5, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This show is bloody brilliant. Every episode delivers in one episode what the major networks deliver in 3 (ABC's Scandal excluded). It answers questions and does so without making it a campy sci fi cheese fest. Instead its a fast paced thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Orphan Black delivers heart by exploring the relationships our girls have with each other and those outside of Clone Club as well as it affects to the girls as individuals and what that means to each. This gives the show weight and keeps it from getting lost in the science. Then there is just enough well timed comedy that it cleanses the pallet and keeps you from feeling bogged down in doom and gloom. All of those traits come from smart writing and flawless acting by every single member of the cast. Every bit of praise Tatiana has gotten is just. This young actor is delivering a focus to detail in her performances and the characters that she brings to life that reminds me of why people like Meryl Streep are so great. You forget that you're watching Meryl Streep or Tatiana Maslany and only see the characters that they play. I can't wait for season 2 and have so much faith in this team that a sophomore slump isn't even a worry.

Blu-Ray just 2 discs ? BD-50 I hope...
Plenty of TV Blu-rays put 4 hours, or sometimes a bit more, of content per BD-50 disc, and the quality is still very high. I have several sets with 5 42-44 minute episodes per BD-50 disc (some of my Fringe discs have 6 42-44 minute episodes) and the quality is wonderful. Three Blu-rays would... Read more

Region B playback ?
No. It's strictly Region A locked! You'll need a multi-regional Blu-Ray player/drive to play this show. Looks like you'll have to wait until August 2014, for the BBC to release this on UK shores. :(
