Lost Girl. Luthor. Being Human. What do they have in common? Well, they’re AWESOME! And addicting. And interesting. Oh…and they are not American shows. At least, not originally. Suffice to say, if you’re only relying ABC for entertaining shows, you’re seriously missing out. And my latest Obsession, courtesy of BBC America (Oh, you genius network owned by British people!) is Orphan Black.
The Premise (courtesty of BBC America): Sarah, an outsider and orphan, life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones… but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy and must race to find answers about who she is and how many others there are just like her.
Okay, yes, I know, the premise sounds nuts, but I PROMISE you…if you watch, it will all make delicious, suspenseful sense. Of a sorts. Oh, whatever, all you really need to do is get caught up in the fantastic acting of Tatiana Maslany. She is the ONLY person that I ever want to see in this role. Plus, one of the clones is a lesbian. WINNING!!! Watch the season 1 trailer below:
