What a fantastic series!  One of the surprisingly best new shows I've seen in a while and found myself very anxiously looking forward to each new episode.  I can't say that about most shows I watch. Tatiana Maslany is absolutely brilliant and deserves a few awards for her performance.

And the winner is:

Wow, you guys really like this show a lot.  I've been telling my friends that this is a great show, but most of them watches crap.

This could be the first big legal win for Sarah Manning and her fellow clones: Supreme Court rules against patenting human genes :sure:

I had been meaning to comment on that last episode. The possibility of a non-human person owning a human turns my stomach.

It happens all the time -- most people work for an artificial entity called a corporation.

Whether you are "owned" or not is subject to interpretation and debate. For those

of you who are "scared" to take a vacation for fear of losing (not loosing) your job,

I would suggest that you are 'owned' -- like a street hooker is owned by her pimp.

 

My apologies to those who may be offended by this, but it's true.

They ruled against patenting naturally occuoring genes.  They already ruled that geneticly modified genes can be patented.

I understand where you are coming from. On the other hand if they came to me and said pack up your bag you are now working for the XYZ corporation then I know they truly own me.

Yes, but the big question in my mind about the show is other than the "bar code" gene, how many did they modify? Does inserting one modified patented gene mean the company has any real rights to the full human - with a complete DNA set? It raises issues - does having a kid who inherits the gene constitute illegal use like file sharing?

So will Space Canada be showing it at the same time to Beat The Downloads? Downloading is the only way to get it since neither Space nor BBC have a Roku Channel.
