Orphan Black

Like I mentioned a few posts ago, Lifetime Asia has been asking me to review their shows. One show that has caught my attention is ORPHAN BLACK. It premieres on April 7 and will air every Monday at 9PM on Lifetime Asia but you can watch the first episode online  NOW for free—HERE. The series and it’s lead actress Tatiana Maslany (who looks like a brunette Avril Lavigne, right?!?!) has bagged quite a number of awards for this show. 

I caught the first episode and I was hooked. Tatiana Maslany does such a great job of transitioning from one character to another, changing her mannerisms, voice, and even her accent. She does the whole “double life” act so seamlessly. The first episode sweeps through the events in one go, capturing your attention even with just a few minutes. The end of episode 1 also gives you another shocker, which I won’t spoil! Hehehe! Just make sure you watch the first ep on Lifetime!

Here’s the gist of the series: “Sarah is a streetwise outsider, currently on the run from a bad relationship and painfully separated from her own daughter. When an eerily lookalike stranger commits a shocking suicide right in front of her, Sarah sees a potential solution to all her problems by assuming the dead woman’s identity and clearing out her bank account. But instead, she stumbles headlong into a kaleidoscopic thriller mystery, and soon uncovers an earth-shattering secret: she is a clone. As Sarah searches for answers, she soon learns there are more like her out there, genetically identical individuals, nurtured in wildly different circumstances. And someone is trying to kill them off, one by one. “
