This is an original series on Prime that involves cloning. The lead actress is extremely talented and carries the show in a way that few other actresses could.

Anyone else watching?

Yeah, I picked up the show just before the second season started a few years ago. Really great series, and Tatiana Maslany is amazing, totally disappears into all these different characters.

Currently watching season 4 as it comes out weekly on Netflix. (Last year it was still on the BBC in the UK and we had to wait 6 months past the US air date. Sad) I like that this season has mostly dropped the storylines from season 3 and started bringing things back to where they started in the first season.

I started watching it about a month ago and I'm now current. It's an interesting premise that unfortunately isn't being used to make a broader point about humanity. But it is entertaining. And my God is the lead actress good.

After a break, we picked back up with this series this weekend, and we're now in Season 2. I loved the ending with Season 1, and there have been some new twists in Season 2 that have really piqued my interest.

Just watched the series finale - really good watch the entire show but kinda wish they hadn't wrapped it up so quickly.

Like others Tatiana Maslany is absolutely awesome!! And yes she has carried the show - not that the other actors haven't also been great - but how exhausting must it have been to play so many consecutive roles! Just brilliant.
