Weekend TV: Orphan Black, Salem, Lifetime Making Whoopi

Tatiana Maslany, Jordan Gavaris

"You are a bloody wrecking ball. You are an exploding cigar," laments a confidante of the clones under siege in BBC America's thrillingly entertaining Orphan Black. She's also a bloody marvel, as Tatiana Maslany plays these diverse doppelgangers with astonishing range and surprising nuance. Scrappy street waif? Check. High-strung soccer mom? Check. Lesbian scientist-in-training? Check. Deranged Russian assassin? Why not. Beyond a provocative premise and blistering pace, Orphan Black is a terrific showcase for one of TV's great performances. Even when it threatens to look like a stunt, with one clone at another's throat in a smackdown or layering the subterfuge when one clone pretends to be another, this bonded-by-genetics sister act never feels forced or phony.

The Monday Playlist: Monday Mornings, Robin Sparkles, a Hawaiian Remake and More

Jamie Bamber, Jennifer Finnigan

Last week, NBC's ludicrous insta-flop Do No Harm (about a Jekyll-Hyde neurosurgeon) pushed TV's medical genre beyond its melodramatic limits. Taking the completely opposite tack, and likely to get a much longer leash (this being cable), TNT's Monday Mornings (Monday, 10/9c) is a surprisingly mellow drama set at a hospital, about doctors forced to face up to their shortcomings, with an ensemble led by (trend alert?) gorgeous and flawed — though decidedly not bonkers — neurosurgeons, played by Jamie Bamber and Jennifer Finnigan.

Is David E. Kelley's Monday Mornings a Carbon Copy of Grey's Anatomy?

Monday Mornings

There are hot doctors who may have unrequited feelings for one another. Colleagues call one of the docs 007. Another doc is definitely McDreamy — and has the hair to prove it.

No, we're not talking about Grey's Anatomy. We're describing TNT's new medical drama Monday Mornings, a near carbon-copy of ABC's Seattle-based series. In David E. Kelley's new take on the medical world, doctors — including those played by Jamie Bamber, Alfred Molina, Ving Rhames and Jennifer Finnigan — in a Portland-based hospital face life-and-death decisions every day as they fight against often-impossible odds to save their patients.
