“Orphan Black”: Criminally Underrated?

Unlike ew.com, I wouldn’t go so far to say that “Orphan Black,” which returns for a second season on April 19, is criminally underrated. I know plenty of people who watch it and enjoy it, and all of them, like me, think it’s engaging without going full hype, like ew, and saying the show is on the level of “Breaking Bad.” Here’s what ew does say specifically: ‘You may not have seen it, but you’ve likely heard the name: “Orphan Black.” What is it? It’s the show that came out of nowhere — well…Canada, actually — to become a buzzy underground sensation on the strength of a twisty-turny clone conspiracy story and a remarkable performance from a previously unknown Canadian actress by the name of Tatiana Maslany.
