“Orphan Black” often feels like a pulpy sci-fi guilty pleasure, but there’s more to it than that.
The show’s gritty take on nature vs. nurture and the morality of human cloning is given an undeniably soulful presence in Emmy-winning Tatiana Maslany. The actress ingeniously plays Sarah Manning – around whom the series revolves – but also Manning’s “sestras,” or sister clones Rachel, Allison, Cosima and Helena.
A lot has happened in the previous four seasons, but there are still mysteries to unlock. The Peabody Award-winning series launches its fifth and final season at 10 p.m. Saturday, June 10, on AMC. You can catch up on seasons 1-4 on Amazon Prime and other services.
