Orphan Black is the best show on TV that you’re not watching right now!

In the series, Sarah Manning (Tatiana Maslany), a girl in her mid-20s with no real future or direction, notices a woman that looks identical to her while waiting for a train. As the train arrives, the woman jumps in front of the train. Looking to make a quick buck, Sarah steals her purse and identity. However, everything isn’t as it seems, and Sarah is quickly pulled into a world she knows nothing about.

That’s all I will say because I don’t want to give too much away because the suspense is part of what makes the show so captivating. If you haven’t seen it, you have to check it out. It’s fantastic, especially Tatiana Maslany!

For her role in the series, Maslany was nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe for Best Lead Actress in a Drama Series.

Currently, the first two seasons of Orphan Black are available on Amazon Prime Video. The third season, which already aired BBC America, should hit the streaming service some time around February 2016.
