Why Aren’t You Watching ‘Orphan Black’ Right Now?

Look, I know you’re probably at “the office” and “really busy,” but those excuses are not going to cut the mustard this time. You have all ten episodes of the first series of Canadian sci-fi potboiler Orphan Black to watch. I don’t care that the second season isn’t coming out until next year. Get on this.

You’re telling me you’re not tripping over yourself to get hooked on a show about a secret clone experiment gone awry, stolen identities, murder, deceit, and the ultimate mystery of what it is to be a person? Surely, you jest. Perhaps it would sway you to know that the fearsomely-talented lead actress, Tatiana Maslany, plays ten different versions of “herself,” all with different spot-on accents. Also, she’s quite attractive.

Okay, I’ll make you a deal—you watch the opening scene of Orphan Black below, and if afterward you don’t immediately call the cable company to figure out whether you get BBC America, I don’t even know what we’re going to do with you. Enjoy your reruns of Full House, you poor, deluded soul!
