Anyone watch this? Season 1 was crazy good. And yet just 2 episodes into Season 2, I'm thinking this season is a thousand times more brilliant. I lose count of all the WTF? moments each episode.

Anyone with me?

Umm. Yeah. The lead actress - Tatiana Maslany - is just astounding. Highly recommend it.

I should warn that there is a story line that is not F&G friendly, if you follow my drift. And there are plenty of instances of lying, pretending to be someone you aren't, hiding things, breaches of trust, etc. It's a show full of intrigue, mystery, unclear motivations, etc.

None of this was problematic for me (beyond getting me hopelessly hooked on the show ), but I did want to put that caveat out there so as not to blindside anyone who hasn't watched.

What's it called? Orphan? Freaking? Black?
Have to check if season 1 is on Netflix...that's how I do TV now. Always looking for a good WTF type of series!

It's not on Netflix. It's a BBC America show, so their website might have info on where to find Season 1.

I watch Community. Sometimes. When I remember. But for some reason, comedies don't make it on the OMG I HAVE TO WATCH THIS! list with me. Apparently I'm far too serious for *those* shows.

Exactly. And it blows my mind when it hits me 10 minutes later that the scene I watched with four people in it was ALL HER.

This one keeps popping up on Prime. Maybe I'll set Warehouse 13 aside for a while and start this one instead.

I'm always looking for good shows to binge watch on lazy days and you got me hooked on this one. I hadn't even heard of it before I read your post and love it.

Thank you, it's so good!

Helena is so fascinating! I root for her even though I'm pretty sure I shouldn't.

That scene at the end with Helena and Sarah? Terror, relief, crazy broken sisterly love... So amazing. Just... wow.
