Orphan Black S1 and S2 Blu Ray Review

Orphan Black S1 and S2 Blu Ray Review

Rating: M
Released by Roadshow Home Ent

Sci-fi doesn't get more loved than this Canadian series, which proves you're never clone alone.

Tatiana Maslany delivers an acting masterclass as a woman who assumes the identity of a lookalike after witnessing a suicide. But unbeknownst to her, it's just the first of a series of clones as she starts to wade in to a massive conspiracy around her...

Orphan Black is a series which thrives on the twists and excels on its lead actress, Tatiana Maslany who plays so many variations of a similar character with such aplomb, it's a crying shame her subtleties of performances have yet to be critically acclaimed with awards.

The series is intelligent, low budget sci fi that works well on ideas but never falls short of inventiveness. Just when you think the show's running out of steam, the writers throw a curveball your way and send you desperately scrabbling for the next episode.

Clever and original, both of these seasons are smart, intelligent and well worthy of your time - particularly as season 3 is on the way.
