Need A Show For Summer? How About Orphan Black!


Orphan Black is now in its second season which means that the first season is streaming on Amazon, and that means I have finally gotten around to start watching it.  If you haven’t heard of it before, it is about a con artist that finds out she is a clone, and she has to figure out what is going on.

A show like this would be pointless if you couldn’t find the right person to be the clone, and thankfully the people of the Space channel in Canada and BBC America found Tatiana Maslany.  She is able to handle all her roles very well, and give each character their own voice even if they all look the same.  The supporting cast is good as well, but they do not stand out like Maslany.

The show is gripping, and it manages to give a few genuine surprises.  It can get a little spicy, so this not for the younger crowd.  If all your favorite shows are off the air, the ten episodes of Orphan Black might be just what you are looking for.  Now if they would just start streaming the second season I might be able to make it through the rest of the summer.
