Yep. She should not only be nominated but should win. I am a huge fan of Clarie Danes, and agree she was worthy of all her Emmys, but Tatiana should be collecting her second this year. Playing eight personalities and then to have one personality imitate another is a role of a lifetime, and she does it well.

My guess, no one (or not enough) watch(es) the show. Ratings are quite dismal.

AMC put a lot of money into advertising the show before the start of Season 3 and re-runs of OB are airing on at least two other channels. Hopefully, that will help increase viewership. She's so good you often forget it's the same actress and the range of emotions she has to bring for multiple characters is a joy to watch.

I also agree about the FX. There was a scene in the Season 3 opener where Sarah and Allison were in car having a conversation. I kept looking for the seam and differences in lighting and could not detect them.

Man, what is this, the 3rd time Tatiana has played a character playing another character? Actually she did it twice, simultaneously, in this episode IN THE SAME SCENE! Absolutely ridiculous at how well she does this. Aside from the main story which is awesome, just these moments alone make the show can't miss tv. Brilliant acting from Tatiana and a shame it's not more well known.

Emmy's have no legitimacy. "The Wire" never won a single Emmy. There were only two episodes that garnered nominations at all, both for writing. This when the critics were virtually unanimous in proclaiming it the greatest Television show of all time.

I hope OB doesn't get too over-the-top with the conspiracies on top of conspiracies plot-line, and forget about the character driven storyline in the process. If there's another level of super-secretness above Topside I might go crazy.

Same.

They're walking that line right now.

I'm about 30 minutes into the newest episode. Sorta getting hard to follow all these conspiracies, though I am liking the Allison drug story.

It must be that (bleep) scorpion. I tune out whenever it shows up.

Alright so the ending was pretty good. Still don't know why Paul is being such a dick.

At least this season has been better than the last one. Really liking the Castor guys though the characters are not as diverse as Tatiana's but at least the actor is delivering good performances. Oh yeah that scorpion thing is hilarious. Really don't know what the purpose of it is.

Yeah, I like the brothers too and agree that they're not all that different from one another but enough to kind be able to tell them apart. Whenever I see Allison specifically I forget that it's Tatiana, she's done such an amazing job.

Tatiana Maslany is even doing the voice of the scorpion.

I guess I wasn't really surprised when I read it because it does kinda sound like Cosima.

I always wondered why Dylan Bruce (Paul) got co-starring credit over Jordan Gavaris (Felix). He wasn't on camera nearly as much in any of the two previous seasons and I always thought of Paul as a minor character compared to Felix, especially after Season 1. Thankfully, they corrected that this season by listing Gavaris second in the credits.

My favorite episode of the season. Cosima impersonating Allison this time.

Let's keep score:
Sarah has impersonated Beth, Katya, Cosima and Allison
Helena has impersonated Sarah
Allison has impersonated Sarah
Cosima has impersonated Allison

Can't wait to see one of them impersonate Helena.

You're forgetting Rachel too. And yes, I loved this episode. Allison and Felix are so damn entertaining.

Loved this Allison-centric episode. We need more of those even if they don't move the main storyline all that much.
