Anyone else watching this show? I got it off iTunes after hearing about it from a friend. Holy crap, can the lead actress act. Every character feels real and unique. Highly recommended.

I started watching the first episode on BBC America, but I just couldn't get into it.

Yes! Started watching it because it was right after Dr. Who on BBC America and I instantly was addicted. The season just ended and the new season will start in 2014. It is astonishing how the lead actress is able to play so many different roles and make them be totally independent characters.

Agreed. I sometimes seriously forget that the same actress is playing some of the characters. More than just the different hairstyles and ways of speaking, she just affects different mannerisms that just sell the character. She'd better be winning every best actress award for television this year.

Agreed, she's one hell of an actress. Each character is believable. Plus the show has sucked me in. Spent most of Saturday watching the season back to back on BBC America.

It's about a woman who finds out her life is not like it seems.

Posted in white for spoilers.

From Wiki:
Stars Tatiana Maslany as several identical women who are revealed to be clones. The series raises issues about the moral and ethical implications of human cloning and its impact on issues of personal identity.

Watch Tatiana Maslany pull off a tour de force of acting.

It's almost a crime she didn't win for best supporting actress and best ensemble too

Alot of these British/Foreign shows are hard to watch the first time. But if its a good show, give it a 2-3 shows, then you will adjust to the culture differences and focus more on the story/character.

She is so awesome.

Loved her on Parks and Rec, too. When Tom tries to cheat at Skee-ball to win her the stuffed animal.

Tom: OK, you're gonna be my lookout.

Nadia: Alright. (gets the worker's attention)

Hey, is he supposed to be doing that?

GREAT first episode of season two.

I'll leave it at that for those who don't want spoilers.

This is becoming a must see show.

I am continuously impressed by Tatiana's acting ability. This show is just too damn good. They'll answer a question but they make you ask two more. It really feels like the have a very specific story already worked out for the next few seasons.

Didn't knew there was a thread on this one. I watched the first season last summer and I really didn't expected it to be so great. One of my favorites no doubt. Tatiana is one of the best actresses I have seen, how she makes every character feel different is unmatched. Season 2 started off nicely, didn't expect the twist at the end.

Quick poll, who is your favorite clone? I think Kasima is the hottest but Sarah is definitely the most interesting but Allison's spiral is pretty damn entertaining.

True. She's such a wild card. And you want to root for her but don't know if you should. When she first appeared in season one is when I knew Tatiana was on in a league of her own.
