OK, Orphan Black is officially the best show on TV right now. Probably since Buffy. Possibly ever. Totally blowing me away. (Thanks sabotabby for the rec.)
One thing I'm wondering is how they managed to clone Tatiana Maslany, 'cos one actor can't have that much talent, can they?
For those who don't know it, it's a sci-fi thriller, though I'd put the accent on thriller: the sci-fi conceit takes place in a contemporary real world setting. (In Toronto, where all the best TV shows are happening right now, like Lost Girl and that really cookie political thriller about the crack-smoking mayor who's mixed up with all these criminal gangs and... oh wait.)
As a thriller, the pace, the tension, is just mindblowing.
As for the fascinating characterisation, an excellent and totally non-spoilery article on why it's such a great show here.
