The premise is that this woman witnesses the suicide of someone who looks exactly like her. It turns out that she has a number of clones that exist around the world. As if that weren't enough of a good sci-fi story, there is also a hint of intrigue with several sinister background plots and conspiracies.

The lead actress in this series deserves an Emmy (or whatever the TV award is) for all of the different roles she plays in each episode.

Good stuff.
Just started watching Orphan black, its good. Each episode gets you in deeper and deeper. Really enjoying it so far.

So far, it's more or less following the storyline in the book, and the book has a definite conclusion.
I asked Shrek if he wanted a side of beef about a second before the Dome came down...he still thinks I watched it before... Nope, I read the book. There's lots going on and I'm going to have to read it again, there is one string in there I don't remember from the book.

I agree. The little twists they throw in keep you interested from episode to episode. I've gotten all the way through the first season now, and can hardly wait until season 2 starts.

We're watching it Kylie. I can't imagine it being a long running series and I guess we're wanting a conclusion, like a really long movie. Actually, I wish they had presented the show that way. I quickly became bored with the series "Lost" and I'm thinking the same will happen with "Under the Dome".
What do you think?

Same here Kayelle for me with "Lost." Whereas The Pirate was addicted to it. No talking when it was on. A good excuse for me to get some housework done. And I never got started with Dome. Not my type of show. Like Spike, I prefer documentary type shows and history.
