Great final episode. I still wonder who the original is though, or maybe there isn't one!
Yep just enough reveal to keep it from being annoying, and enough held back to make me eager for answers.

I don't think there will be an original as such, though they may have started with someone's DNA they've engineered the girls template from that rather than cloning from an individual. Much like say the genetically modified tomatoes produced by Calgene or Zeneca

Oh was that the last of the season or the whole series?

Felt a bit short to me. Will be interesting to see how where they take it if there is another season.

End of season, it's been renewed for a second one (10 episodes again)

Thought from about half way through there was something fishy about Mrs. S. I wonder of she's taken Kira or if Helena has survived her shooting, someone else entirely perhaps? And it was pretty obvious signing those contracts wouldn't change anything. Poor Alison too. And I wonder is Cosima's friend will somehow manage to help her with the illness?

Will be a long wait til S2!!

Just finished watching this in 2 evenings and I must say that it is fantastic. Tatiana Maslany deserves every acting award going.

I really want to watch this.

The more I read about it, the more brilliant (and kind of bonkers) it sounds.

I wish BBC3 would get a move on and air it already.

Just got done watching the first season, and only started yesterday.

Loved every moment of it. Really excited for season 2, but don't want to wait until next year.

Just finished watching this over the last week or so. It's one of those shows that's so good, I wanted to watch every episode back to back - but at the same time, I didn't want rush it, given than series 2 ain't kicking off till next year.

It's a great series in it's own right, but it's Maslany in-particular that elevates it into one of the very best shows of recent years. Yeah, her Brixton sounded a little Brisbane in the early episodes but I think it improved over the series. That or I just got used to it. And it was a tiny imperfection in an otherwise flawless performance...performances... in creating characters so completely different, even by the last episode, I still found meself forgetting that they're all the same actress.

She shouldn't win an Emmy this year. She should win seven of them!

Finally got round to check this show out and I love it
I am three episodes in and I am hooked

Tatiana is a revelation. Her british accent comes off a little australian, but she is playing dozens of characters and you forget it is the same actress playing each one.

I hope she is honored at the golden globes next year as the emmys seem to have snubbed her.

Doesn't look like it's gonna be hitting BBC3 any time soon. The UK DVD/Blu-Ray release of season 1 was originally listed on Amazon as next month (presumably after it had aired here over the Summer).

It's now listed as being released in August 2014.

I've watched episode 7, not my favourite but still pretty good.

Cosima's my fave of the clones though.

Heard loads about this show online with no airdate on the BBC in sight, so I bought the DVD off eBay (Then they announce it starts on the 20th!)

Totally hooked, finished it within four days (the next time trailers were the worst, you could not watch the credits without watching the next episode). Plus with only 10 episodes there was no wasted episodes with pointless filler.

Tatiana is unbelievable. She makes every version feel like a completely different character to such a degree that you almost forget they are played by the same actress! Yes her accents slip but you tend not to notice after a while (have to agree her British does sound Australian tho).

From what I've heard she really gets into each character to the point that she has playlists for each clone & try's to stay in character in between scenes, now that's commitment! Hopefully she wont burn out.

Love the core three clones, but Cosima has sneaked in as my favourite But because Tatiana plays so many characters none of them are safe!

It's gonna be a long wait till April.................

I'm another that loved season 1. I watched it all recently. I will admit that I thought the first episode or two was slightly dodgy but from episode 3 I was hooked and couldn't get enough of the show after that. I will be re-watching it all on BBC3.

As has been mentioned, Tatiana is simply amazing and you really do have to remind yourself on numerous occasions that this is one actress playing these roles, she really is that good.

My favourite is Cosima. Maybe it's the dreadlocks, or the specs, but when Cosima comes on screen I can't take my eyes off of her!
