    I've watched the first 3 episodes and found it entertaining, so far, even though I have no idea where the story line's going! :lol:

    I have yet to start watching. I'm probably going to save this one for a couple of months down the road when I'm recording less.

    It's not too bad so far. It's got me wondering in what direction it's going to go.

    I'm really liking it as well. It is perfect for Saturday's with nothing else to watch.

    I love it!! One of the best new shows I've seen in a while. Plus it doesn't hurt that Tatiana Maslany is awfully nice to look at every week :p

    This is one of those shows where I saw the previews and thought it would be something I like... I DVRed it... watched it and found it to be better than I thought it would be.

    I've posted on another forum and said that Tatiana Maslany really is selling all her roles in this. The show doesn't work without you believing she is different people... and she is making that work.

    It's amazing on how many parts she is playing, all of them very different.

    Yep... I also had some observations and thoughts after tonight. I'm spoilering the one that relates to events on tonight's episode for those who haven't watched yet...

    They snuck something in, then seemed to ignore it:
    Seemed to be an indication that perhaps the clones cannot have children, because there was surprise at Sarah saying Kiera was her biological daughter.

    Meanwhile... I've wondered if Sarah might turn out to be the original... but then I thought about something else. Usually we get shows about clones OR shows about surprise twins... but what if they had both? What if Sarah was an original but also has a legitimate twin somewhere who is the source of the clones. That might be an interesting thing to throw into the mix.

    Also, so far, all of the clones seem to be the same age. I wonder if that will continue to be the case, or if we will have younger or older versions running about.

    Stewart, I wonder the same thing regards your spoiler. I thought it was a fairly dramatic plot point that was made even more so by the lack of discussion about it.

    I also see some foreshadowing directed towards "Soccer Mom" and Kiera.

    I really enjoyed last night's episode.

    Yes, I am really enjoying this show. I also picked up on the spoiler, but think they played it off right.

    Agree... I think it was intentionally in there, so that observant fans would pick up on it... and they will revisit it later. I think it factors in a bit to how the clones will relate to each other over time IF that little spoiler nugget is true for everyone.

    My 9pm et recording of tonight's show is all messed up. The picture is half off the screen and frozen. I think it may be the BBCAHD feed from DirecTv because all other channels are displaying normally. I'm recording the midnight episode in a few minutes. I suggest people check their recording ASAP so an alternate can be recorded if necessary.
