The series Ringer might have been, with an added science-fiction twist, is Orphan Black, a BBC America original. This one is good.

The dark tone and the malicious atmosphere of Orphan Black keep things tense throughout the first episode. As it turns out, this a good thing.

Orphan Black has the same plain club soda flavor you get in most cable action dramas now, but I have to say that I'm enjoying some of its fizz.

Maslany makes the most of what are revealed to be multiple, complex roles.

Basically, it's fun: creepy when it needs to be, light when it can be (which is more often than you'd expect, given the life and death stakes), [and] doesn't look too cheap.

Just an English-accented version of the CW's since-departed Ringer, with an additional sci-fi vibe thrown in for good measure. (For some reason, Futureworld comes to mind.)

Though the ideas here are nothing new, the zippy plot, realistic dialogue, and appealing actors bring new life to an old premise.

Once you get past this confusion, what you'll be left with is a darned good premise of a show with interesting actors.
