#SciFi #TV #Review: Orphan Black (2013) Episode 1 (Some Spoilers)

The poster above is a bit of a giveaway, so you already have more than a vague inkling about what the show is about right from the beginning. But what sets this apart is that the “good” guys are low-life grifters, drug-mules and drug-dealers.

In the first episode we see our heroine steal the identity of a suicide, a seemingly foolproof plan that starts to go badly awry almost immediately.

The thriller seems to show some promise with a good, and not-overly glamorous, portrayal of the main character by Canadian actress Tatiana Maslany. Her wonderfully sleazy best friend is played by fellow Canadian actor Jordan Gavaris.
