    Even though I watched House of Cards and kind of liked it, it was actually Orange is the New Black.

    Definitely worth it...I felt there was more sex than necessary (almost like they had to fit in a sex scene every episode), but the more characters they added, the more interesting it was, and when they add layers to the mystery.

    I am very interested in series 2.

    Orphan Black is probably now my favorite show, but I have such a crush on Jordan Gavaris. :lol:

    When I was watching an interview from him (maybe after the finale aired), I was shocked that he wasn't British. Maslany deserves all the praise, but Gavaris is also amazing as Felix and:

    How the character changes and becomes a confidant to Alison was just amazing character development.

    Yeah and in only 10 episodes how everyone and everything evolves was really something to watch.

    I didn't even know about the show until I saw and interview with the three main cast members and it was just so much fun to see them all talk (I think they are all Canadian) and it's just so great. I wish the second season would get a few more episodes but I'll take what i can get.

    Tatiana Maslany has been nominated for a golden globe award in the Best Actress in a Series category.

    ^ Awesome. :D I was super pissed when she wasn't nominated for an Emmy and a SAG award.

    Thoroughly deserving. Finally getting due recognition.

    It's odd seeing her acting so "normal" on Parks and Recreation.

    You know, it's funny, when she first showed up on the show, my first thought was: "I wonder if Guy knows." :)

    I could smell her coming at least 3 episodes before she stuck a toe on the curse soil of Pawne.

    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.
