Orphan Black
by John Fawcett and Graeme Manson

I am so excited for the return of Orphan Black season 2 on BBC! BBC puts out some great TV series like Copper, Sherlock Holmes, Ripper Street and now Orphan Black!

The show’s premise is about a young girl, Sarah (played excellently by Tatiana Maslany), who witnesses the suicide of a woman who looks identical to her. Sarah then assumes the identity of the dead girl, hoping that this will resolve some financial problems. But in fact Sarah uncovers more than that after assuming the dead woman’s identity.

The first season was learning about Sarah, who she is and that she is just one of many clones. After teaming up with the scientist–Cosima, and the soccer mom–Alison, the three clones (Sarah, Cosima, and Alison) become friends and work to uncover this clone world and the mystery within.  Now with season 2, the storyline goes deeper into uncovering the thrilling cliffhanger that ended season 1. The thrilling twists and turns and mysteries of the series keep the viewer coming back for more as audiences, along with Sarah, navigate through the conspiracy of who to trust and who is the enemy.

For me the concept of this show was very original and captivating and that is why I can’t wait to see what happens in the next episode!  If you are looking for a good, thrilling mystery show with a great cast, this is the one to watch!

Orphan Black, Saturdays at 9pm on BBC America
