BBC America’s ‘Orphan Black’ is the Show You Probably Aren’t, But Should Be, Watching

Helena Orphan BlackAdding new TV shows to your routine can be difficult with Nurse Jackie premiering tonight, Game of Thrones going strong and Dexter returning for its final season in June, but I highly suggest that you make time for just one more.

Orphan Black revolves around Sarah, a down and out “punk” who takes on the identity of another woman after witnessing her suicide.

The very British Sarah, played by the brilliant Tatiana Maslany, becomes Beth, a well-off Toronto police officer who was physically identical to her. Things get complicated when Sarah discovers there are others like her and Beth, and that someone wants them all dead.

Fitting loosely into the “sci-fi” category, Orphan Black is the perfect blend of suspense, mystery, comedy and action. Tune in to BBC America, Saturdays at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.
