Starring: Tatiana Maslany, Tatiana Maslany, Tatiana Maslany and Tatiana Maslany.
Orphan Black is a science fiction series that follows Sarah Manning, a young woman trying to get her life back together and gain custody of her daughter. Through a series of bizarre events, she discovers that she is one of several identical clones and gets dragged into a civil war between her creators who view her as property and religious fanatics who view her as a crime against nature.
The greatest highlight of the show is the brilliant performance by Tatiana Maslany, who portrays all of the clones; she manages to give each of them a unique personality with their own personal quirks and motivations. On several occasions, the clones even attempt to impersonate each other, which is an impressive feat of acting.
Likewise, there are scenes where Maslany portrays her characters as they appear on-screen together - props to the show's effects department for making those scenes look seamless.
Orphan Black returns for its second season on April 19th, 2014. Do you plan on checking it out?
Just started watching Orphan Black last night. I'm now two episodes in and I'm hooked. In terms of production, I'm not super impressed. The cinimatography seems a little off to me. The story, however, has me for sure.
