About this show

Sarah hopes that cleaning out a dead woman's bank account will solve all of her problems. Instead, her problems multiply - and so does she. Starring Tatiana Maslany in the lead role of Sarah, an outsider and orphan whose life changes dramatically after witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks just like her. Sarah assumes her identity, her boyfriend and her bank account. But instead of solving her problems, the street smart chameleon is thrust headlong into a kaleidoscopic mystery. She makes the dizzying discovery that she and the dead woman are clones...but are they the only ones? Sarah quickly finds herself caught in the middle of a deadly conspiracy, racing to find answers.

This show is an amazing, fast paced action drama. Tatiana Maslany effortlessly plays at least seven clones, each with their different personalities and mannerisms. She plays each character so well that you sometimes forget that it's actually just her playing all of these clones. John and Graeme and also magnificent writers, they have done a fantastic service to all of their female characters and the plot gets better with every episode/season. I seriously cannot fully express my love for this show in words.

Extremely well done, the lead actress is amazing. In my head, each of her characters are acted by different people. Every episode has something surprising, but in hindsight makes total sense. The only thing that disappoints, is having to wait until Spring for the next season...

Ignore the haters, 1st season is the weakest (focus on selfish deadbeat mom-brat Sarah) but hang in, only gets better from there when Helena is finally included with sestras. Deserves and needs a much better recap than measly 2 minute 'previously on' to summarise intricacies of conspiracies involved. 4 seasons on amazon prime
