It's been a big year for strong female characters on TV, and two of our favorite female-centric series are still generating a lot of buzz: BBC America's "Orphan Black" and Netflix's original series "Orange is the New Black."
"Orphan Black" shows one woman (Tatiana Maslany) struggling with the realization that she's part of a human cloning experiment, as she meets not one but six more women who look a lot like her (all expertly played by Maslany); and "Orange is the New Black" follows an unlikely prison inmate (Taylor Schilling), feeling like a fish out of water until she realizes her fellow prisoners -- as insane as they may seem -- aren't actually that different from her.
We couldn't help but notice the parallels, and also the very similar show titles, so we thought we'd mash them up to see what it'd look like if "Orphan Black's" clones were inmates on "Orange is the New Black."
Without further ado, I give you "Orphan is the New Black" -- enjoy!
Yes, we're all rooting for Sarah on "Orphan Black," but what if she'd been picked up for some of her more serious crimes before all the clone drama happened? She looks pretty good in orange.
Cosima is an intellectual, but we could see her getting locked up for a white collar crime. Luckily in this prison, Sophia (Laverne Cox) could keep her dreads looking good ... for a few favors.
Lorna Morello (Yael Stone) is tough to beat in the fast-talking, know-it-all department, but we know one clone who would seriously own the welcome wagon duty, in prison or anywhere else: Alison.
Yes, everyone is scared of pissing off Red (Kate Mulgrew) for fear that they'll get starved out, but can you imagine if Katja was the prison cook?
Nicky Nichols (Natasha Lyonne) is a talker, and that focused intensity in her eyes tells you it'd be smart to listen ... not unlike crazy Helena.
