Sarah is on the run from a bad relationship when a lookalike stranger commits suicide right in front of her. Sarah sees a solution to all her problems by assuming the dead woman's identity and clearing out her bank account. Instead, she stumbles into a thriller mystery, and uncovers an earth-shattering secret: she is a clone. She learns there are more like her, genetically identical individuals, nurtured in wildly different circumstances, and someone is trying to kill them off, one by one.

A fascinating premise that is well written and acted so that it doesn't matter if you are a science-fiction fan or not. Anyone can enjoy the twists and turns of the plot.

The clone club is a dark and scary place, murder and mayhem abound , not for the lil ones but very well done for adults, very different from anything else in a good way, and made me laugh at the worst things.

Storyline different than any I've seen, the headlining actress of this inventive series, Tatiana Maslany, really makes you believe there are multiple "sestra" clones with her complete surrender to each character - and each clone is likeable. Amazing acting, Tatiana!

Tatiana Maslany deserves much more recognition than she receives. I have to constantly remind myself that the majority of the characters on the show are played by her alone. There's such a believability to each character and they all "interact" so well with each other. It's masterclass acting 101. The entire atmosphere in the show leaves it standing out in a world of Law and Order reruns and other various retellings.

This is an absolutely fascinating and well directed show. Fiction that could be in the realm of possibility. We're hooked!

Perhaps one of the most brilliantly scripted science fiction series ever created, and one that does not rely upon gimmicky special effects and cgi graphics. The variety of characters portrayed by a single actor is quite amazing and the supporting cast is equally impressive.

The story is a bit gimmicky at times but the superb acting by Tatiana Maslany and the cast makes Orphan Black a suspense-filled and entertaining series.
