• I initially was going to give this show a miss but due to the rave reviews I decided to reconsider. There appear to be a few flaws but overall it's a highly charged and intense series. The concept is fairly involved and flows quite well. There are enough plot twists to keep you interested but it also manages to not turn into an ill thought out convoluted mess.

    Probably my biggest issue with Orphan Black is that it is a little unbelievable. I find it extremely hard to believe that the lead character manages to fool everyone into thinking she is someone she's not. Also I understand that they need to differentiate between the clones but the accents are a little ridiculous and off-putting. I do give major credit to actress Tatiana Maslany. She plays multiple characters and manages to keep them all separate even if they are a little over the top.

    I want to rate the show higher but I just can't do it. I enjoy it but I really don't love it. Personally I think the IMDb rating has been overinflated and is really only an above average show. But that's just my opinion.
