I just wanted to start a thread for this show because I just finished the first season.... and found it quite enjoyable. One of those "it can't be as good as everyone* says it is" shows.
Well it was. Addictive as hell, and thank goodness for On Demand so I had the entire season at my fingertips.

*And by "everyone" I mean a lot of non-Zoner people on Facebook were talking about this show. And when non-Zoner people talk, I'm skeptical as hell about a new show - automatically thinking it's the new Dawson's Creek or something. But no, this was very entertaining.

Anyone else watch this?

I did! I think I'm one of the few people that don't quite get the insane levels of praise for this show, but I still find it enjoyable and addictive. Tatiana Maslany is so good in every role that I often forget I'm watching the same actor. Which is impressive considering the show is almost just her talking to herself for 60 minutes.

I also like the way the plot unfolds... they don't telegraph the twists, per se, but they don't try and pull the rug out from under you at the last second. A lot of the game-changing developments are usually brought up long before they're confirmed.

I watched it too, it was something else. Matt Frewer creeps me out. Another very solid show on BBC america.

Man.... I'm watching a shitload of TV and not commenting on 90% of it (until tonight, apparently).
Just wanted to jump-start this thread and say that the second season is still awesome!!
