Orphan Black Review

Image for Orphan Black


A hustler catches a break when she encounters a wealthy doppelgänger on a subway platform — one who promptly steps in front of a train, leaving handbag (and ID) conveniently behind. As a trading-places set-up it’s somewhat hoary, but the quick-emerging clone conspiracy keeps things interesting and the show flits happily between creepy and comic without missing a beat.
