I’m Beginning to Think “BBC America” and the “English Channel” Might Not Be the Same Thing

Last week my friend Jane said that I needed to check out Orphan Black as soon as humanly possible. She said it the best sci fi series she’d seen since Firefly. She told me a little about it and I was sold immediately. I’ve always been fascinated by the idea of human cloning as a thought experiment and it sounds like they took it in a really creative direction. And in the two clips she showed me, Tatiana Maslany was amazing. I legitimately thought they got different actresses to play the clones until Jane told me that it was all her.

Now, as I gasp for air a few miles away off the Cliffs of Dover, I wish I had done a little more research.
