Is anyone else watching this? I've just finished watching the fourth episode of the first series and I'm totally hooked!

I watched it on BBC America. I really liked it. I plan to watch it again on demand.

Yeah, I watched it on BBC America, too, but I'm confused... I think it's Canadian and mostly set in Toronto? I remember looking this up after I watched this and just getting more confused.

Anyway, I liked it and I think Tatiana Maslany did a really good job.

This show is amazing! The lead actress is one of the most talented actresses I have ever seen and she needs to win every huge award. Seriously, I still question if she really plays some of those characters. I love how each character even walks a certain way and has certain mannerisms. How does she do so many different similar accents (like the four Canadian ones)? I had to marathon the rest of the show last night, because it's soooo good. Oh, and I freakin' love Felix.

So the season premiere made me realize I need to rewatch season one. I was so confused!

I just started watching season one and love love it. I normally don't like sci-fi type shows, but I think this is fascinating and Sarah is amazing.

Yes, I loved all of that! Allison is my favorite of the clones, I think. She's just so well-developed and quirky.

I forget that Tatiana is playing all the parts, they each look and act so differently. Sarah looks so much bigger than Alison. And I was surprised in the "Cloneversation" talk show about the series that Tatiana seemed more like Alison in real life than Sarah.

Oooh, I love this show! I love how the storylines intersect and second everyone's amazement that Tatiana plays all those roles. I think my current favorite character is Cosima (Kosima?). Looking forward to episode 2.

Really enjoying the second season so far. It's also so complicated! Who to trust?!

I've been meaning to start watching this and just started season 1 (on Amazon Prime) last night. It's so good! I had to force myself to go to sleep after 3 episodes since I had to get up early this morning. Then I had really exciting dreams all night, haha.

I know! Between Kira and Helena, it's like a constant kidnap party.

I was totally not expecting the Project Castor thing, especially with the religious dude. When they started talking about the male clones, I was really expecting them to be Cal clones in some kind of twisted "clones can only successfully breed with other clones" shiitake.

I really want to know what is going on; another year is too long to wait!

For some reason I thought they were all going to be Paul clones. I also was not expecting religious guy clones.

And I feel so bad for Helena too, because it's like she finally found a family and somewhere she belonged, but what was with the liquid nitrogen and the sneaking out right before she got nabbed? That was kind of weird.

I finally got around to watching this show this week, and I got through it all in 3 days! I had things I was supposed to be doing, but at the end of each episode I was like, "But I can't stop there!" So good. Her acting is extraordinary... I kept forgetting that all of those characters are actually one person.

Leekie's death was very funny. And I'm glad he's gone, I thought his character was a bit cartoon villain-y? He was too obviously evil. I hope Cosima doesn't die (I don't think she will). I think my favourite scene of all was Helena and the tow truck guy, that was adorable!
