I'm planning to finally (finally!!!) start watching Orphan Black this weekend - partly inspired by your posts about it :D

Now to see how long it takes me to get caught up to the current season...!

Not long

If you're at all like me, you'll probably inhale the first three series in a week or less. (A person has to sleep and, maybe, work.)

A word of warning. The first couple of episodes have moments when you might wonder whether this isn't going to be the kind of show that tosses in more or less gratuitous semi-nudity and romance, but that disappears along with the police procedural elements pretty quick.

The writing is top-notch, mixing character-based humour into the sometimes brutal and almost always tension-filled goings on.

Also look for the moment(s) when they stop pretending the show is set in Anytown USA, with the flash of Canadian $20s and a Canuck passport.

And Felix and ... oi. I'll shut up. Watch it. Report back, please. #Cloneclub :)
