Orphan Black is a Canadian show, aired on BBC America. Tatiana Maslany is incredible, playing multiple characters who are, in fact, clones.
Each clone is different with distinctive mannerisms. They all have different ways of walking, even very different ways of talking, and sometimes it’s easy to forget they are all played by the same actress. This is especially true when the scene brings 2 or more clones together and even more so when one clone has to impersonate another. Tatiana is absolutely amazing portraying both characters simultaneously. One of the clones has even become a man!
Matt Frewer is great as usual, playing the scientist who would do anything for the cloning project. Exploring the ethical and moral implications of human cloning, the show raises issues including a radical religious movement regarding the creation of human life.
The entire cast is fantastic; the show is well written and intelligent. The third season premiers on April 18. I am currently re-watching season two as a refresher before the new one. Definitely go back and catch this one from the beginning.
