About damn time somebody gets some recognition.

God knows John Noble deserved his. Did Fusco get a nomination?

Finally. Long overdue.

I was going to watch the Globes anyway because of Amy and Tina, but now I have another reason to watch.

Great news. Richly deserved. I think OB is the overall best acted recent genre series, led by the sublime Ms. Mazlany.

How many characters is she playing?

It's unlikely that the big bad is only experimenting with one clamour of clones.

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

Is clamour the correct nomenclature for a group of clones?

Huh, I guess it is, well "clamor," at least. I guess you learn something new everyday.

I only learnt this collective noun an hour before you did.

That is a cool list, I've never heard of most of those.
And it's been bookmarked for future reference.

The more trailers and various sneak peeks I see for Season 2, the more excited I get. The wait is almost over.

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

I really hope Felix is a clone too because that would make several fantasies I have about Jordan Gavaris even better.

Is it April yet? And can they make a few more episodes a season?

The only problem I would have is if Felix turns out to be a monitor. That was probably destroy his character and all that good will he had from last season. Keep him the loyal confidant because of all the characters who had the development from the last season, other than all the ones Maslany played, of course, Felix showed the most and became an awesome character.

I just got the S1 blu-rays, I need to rewatch a few times before April.

As far as Felix goes, it would be very true to the show to have him be something other than what we think, wouldn't it?

I wouldn't worry. It was clear that Dr. Leekie had no idea who Sarah was until she took over Beth's life. That wouldn't make any sense if Felix were her monitor.

Re: Orphan Black kept my Attention.

In preperation for Season 2, I just started a season 1 rewatch, and it's amazing the type of stuff you pick up watching this series again. For example, I just watched episode 2, Instinct, and the scene where Felix meets Mrs. S and she says "Kira is a Gift...Sarah has no idea" got to me, especially considering Kira seems to know about the clones and her miracle healing after the car accident. It got me thinking though, we don't know who the father is right? Sarah's an Orphan, has a daughter, but who is the father and really who is Kira? Is she an experiment from the clones and something else, or is she just a really special girl.

Like I said, I'm only up through episode 2 and I'm looking forward to the rest of this rewatch (And of course season 2) but it's cool how it seemed like this season was pretty planned out from the beginning. One of the things that got me hooked on the show was the momentum of the first episode never let up for the remainder of the season. It was a pretty fun ride, not to mention I got introduced to who is now my current favorite Actress today, the great Tatiana Maslany.
