The Killing a TV crime drama originally written in Danish. Love the gritty, unglamorous protagonists, the layered murky setting and plot. Mireille Enos is compelling: plain, ginger coloring, grotty old clothes, ears too big, large mouth slightly open as if she has sinusitis. Her focus on finding the killer, while trying to raise a son on her own, fighting corruption and disloyalty, makes for a hugely watchable and empathetic star.
Orphan Black - great show -- The series focuses on Sarah Manning, a woman who assumes the identity of one of her clones, Elizabeth Childs, after witnessing Childs' suicide. The series raises issues about the moral and ethical implications of human cloning and its effect on issues of personal identity.
