Alison from Orphan Black is unstoppable. Pills, guns, winning votes - oh my!
I'll admit it - I was not immediately interested in Orphan Black when I first heard about it. I thought I wouldn't like a "darker" sci-fi series… but I checked it out and now I'm hooked! BBC America's shows are some of my favorites on TV right now.

Season 3 has not been a let down so far, especially what they've done with my favorite character Alison. I love how Alison and Donnie work together after the early bumps in their relationship, they're my favorite characters. And of course, Tatiana Maslany is still killing it as each of the clones.

Sarah, a grifter, witnesses the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. She picks up the woman's handbag and runs. Instead of solving the mystery of how they can look the same, she is confronted with more mysteries. Taking on the woman's identity she discovers they are clones and that there are more of them out there, living in a wide range of circumstances.

As Sarah tries to find out what is going on and who is responsible for it, someone starts picking them off one by one. In a race to find the reason for it all before the killer can get to her, Sarah doesn't know who to trust.

The episode titles for season one are taken from Charles Darwin's evolutionary text "On The Origin of Species" (published November 24, 1859) and for season two, the episode titles are quotes from the works of Sir Francis Bacon.
