Sarah Manning sees a woman who looks just like her jump in front of a train and kill herself. Sarah, a small-time con woman and thief, wastes no time in assuming her doppelg√§nger’s identity but finds more than she bargained for. Orphan Black (2013-2017) is an intelligent yet highly approachable show that is both highly addictive and completely guilt-free. It’s sci-fi done right. But the show might be nothing without the exemplary performances of its star Tatiana Maslany. Keep your eye on this girl. She’s going places.
