TV – Orphan Black: Season 1: A-

It’s a fantastic premise, one which facilitates all kinds of great drama and symbolism. And for the most part it lives up to that promise. At times it leans on “because the plot requires it” reasoning a bit much, but there’s usually an acceptable amount of intrigue created by such leanings. Tatiana Maslany does an excellent job juggling several roles, (mostly achieved through differing accents and wigs), but it’s especially impressive when she’s doing a scene where one clone has to pretend to be another. It uses several fun “not who/what you think” moments, and has a near-endless potential for plenty more.
