Good fit - it'll do well there. One of my favourite shows right now.

It is funny Copper never got picked up in the UK. Seemed popular enough in the US, though I never watched it myself.
I suppose part of the problem might be that it would appear too similar to Ripper Street

There's a film doing the rounds called 'Picture Day' starring Tatiana Maslany. I haven't seen it yet, but she is a good actress so hopefully it will be a good film.

I cant believe how much I am enjoying this, hoping Paul really does care about Sarah though the preview from next weeks makes me unsure they were so cute in the ep this week lol

I am guessing she is the original

I'm pretty sure it is another clone, but don't know it she is the original. Depends how old she is, her hair looks like a wig.

she might be the mother, I'm not convinced the lady from Cape Town is the real mother

The lady from Cape Town was just the surrogate. She carried the fertilised egg donated from whomever was the biological mother.

I'm thinking the mysterious lady looking out of the window is the original or the mother, but as you say she might be 20 something like another clone or 40 something, love this show

Just started watching. I enjoy it but have to suspend disbelief a little bit. I keep thinking why don't they just go to the cops and get protection and proper investigators on the job?

Bad acting, bad casting, bad everything.


Compelling viewing though!

Just started watching this, I love it but the English accents are SO bad it's distracting.Sarah sounds Australian and Felix sounds like some sort of comedy villian.

Bad acting?! I'd say the best thing about the show is the acting clinic Maslany's putting on, and she's already garnered a much deserved nomination for the Critic's Choice Awards - surprisingly considering this is only a BBC America show. She's been fantastic throughout and has managed to create completely unique personalities for all 4 of the main clones. There are points where I forget they're all played by the same actress.

The special effects are very good. You can't tell that it is the same actress in the scenes. Sometimes I think they must be using a twin. Especially this week when the 2 of them were in the car.

I don't mind Felix's accent, but Sarah's really is bad... Definitely more Aussie than English!

I totally agree I too forget she plays them all and is doing a fantastic job.

Am loving the friendship between Felix and Alison and she is defo my fave clone looking forward to more Sarah and Helena stuff now too also enjoying Sarah's relationship with Paul.

Got no idea where they are going to take the police investigation wasn't expecting that to get so hot so quick in the series with all the other stuff going on

gaz141 made reference to 'last night's episode', that's what confused me. Is it being shown anywhere else at the moment?

Sarah's English accent is bad, but the actress who plays her is very good otherwise! I love her as Alison particularly, as her life is such a disaster area! This gives the best laughs of the series. Helena is also well-played; she really gives me the creeps sometimes.

It's on BBC America on Saturday night, and so "available" after that... Presumably why gaz141 said "loved today's episode" on Sunday.

Not on anywhere else yet AFAIK.

I agree that she's good other than that one accent.

Alison's my favourite clone, easily.

Great final episode. I still wonder who the original is though, or maybe there isn't one!
