Orphan Black - New SciFi for BBC3

BBC Three is to air sci-fi drama Orphan Black in the UK.

The series - which stars Tatiana Maslany as a woman who adopts the identity of her dead double - airs on BBC America in the US.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.

I haven't watched the trailer but the synopsis you gave tells me I wont like it (probably because most american shows suck (except for sitcoms, I love me some himym ;) ))
Well, you know what they say. The past is a foreign country - - With an outdated military and huge oil reserves!

Orphan Black is excellent. A little like Alias. Good female lead character and supporting actors add comic effect and sympathy. Fast paced if a tad far fetched at time (but hey thats never stopped Dr Who) stories. Again, the lead actress has a lot of charisma. I hope this lasts. BBC 3 don't tend to support things long.

This show is a must watch just to see Tatiana Maslany's absolutely magnificent performances.

Oh and performances is not a typo (but that'd be spoiling).

She is surprisingly good isnt't she? The plot is sometimes verging on the ridiculous but she and the rest of the cast keep you enthralled as they all take it just seriously enough but also with the right amount of humour to keep things moving.
