    Absolutely loving the show so far. Tatiana is a revelation

    9 clones 4 dead? Who are the others? Did I mis something?

    • Alyssa

      Cosima, Sarah, Alison, and Helena are alive. There is probably a European clone that still needs to be introduced. The European clones were Katja, a clone in France, a clone in Italy, and a clone in Austria. Plus Beth, that’s nine.

    Love the show – Tataiana Maslany is quite spectacular, even though her english accent is more Canberra than Camden.

    A slap on the wrist for you blog writer though – George Bernard Shaw was Irish, not English…

    Love the show. Would love to get playlist of music used in the show not jusr as a mood enhancer for character development. Cloning is such a fascinating issue…nature vs nurture, organ farms, genetic breeding for DNA refining, etc. So many possibilities to go for right or wrong. Human nature is a capricious animal.
