Orphan Black is Canada’s latest science fiction creation and second original series from BBC America after Copper. The series premiere was met with mixed reviews as is anything in the diverse yet often repetitive and unoriginal world of sci-fi. *Spoiler: It’s about clones. Tatiana Maslany plays Sarah, who is portrayed as criminal who learns she is a clone.. or is the original and has been cloned? We don’t know yet. The pilot came across more of an action-thriller-drama with a mystery/sci-fi climax. Unlike a lot of reviewers, I thought this was the perfect introduction and it made me think of Dark Angel for the character and Fringe for the conspiracy right away. I’m sure the sci-fi will be less of an undertone and more of the dominant force throughout the series as we follow the storyline.
