Sarah is on the run from a bad relationship when a lookalike stranger commits suicide right in front of her.

Instead, she stumbles into a thriller mystery, and uncovers an earth-shattering secret: she is a clone. She learns there are more like her, genetically identical individuals, nurtured in wildly different circumstances, and someone is trying to kill them off, one by one.

Ignored its' first two years, it is great to see this Canadian Sci-fi production get a nod. Tatiyana Maslany is unbelievably talented. If you saw the Woman in Gold, she played a young Helen Mirren.

Brilliant! Probably an actor's dream to portray so many clones. Not easy to portray so many personalities so distinctly.

The star of this series (in season 3 production as of spring, 2015) is Tatiana Maslany, a brilliant Canadian actress, who plays multiple roles in convincing fashion.

Cutting edge sci-fi comedy-drama (and the comedy is great.)

Great supporting cast, great writing. A stand-out. Four stars.
