My new obsession: 'Orphan Black.'

After hearing a segment about it on NPR's Pop Culture Happy Hour podcast, I decided to finally check out Orphan Black. Holy mackerel, is it good! The story is—thus far—perfectly paced and well told. I've been looking for a good sci-fi series to get invested in for a while now and this perfectly fits the bill. Today, Slate's Cultural Gabfest also discussed the series, so I feel it's hitting that point of critical acclaim that transforms it from cult show to mainstream success. So jump on the bandwagon, there's plenty of room up here!

Also, I appreciate the BBC's stance on allowing naked butts, both male and female, to occupy some screen time. But that's just an added bonus.
