    The bad audio (dialogue obscured by the music score, which is pretty bad anyway) made it nearly impossible for me to understand what was going on.

    That's the consensus here. A lot of us were upset she got passed over for an Emmy nomination.

    I don't really have that problem with Orphan Black at all, I have noticed that turning the bass way down helps a lot in general with this type of thing.

    Neither have I.

    I wonder if the problem is psychosomatic? He sees the CN Tower, and instantly has trouble understanding dialogue. :D

    Maybe because he's Canadian he just automatically assumes it has to be worse than when it's not filmed in Canada? A grass is greener type of thing? :D

    (yes, yes, I am now skipping the Vancouver part! :p)

    Isn't Vancouver basically just a spatially-disjointed suburb of LA?

    Yes, I'm allowed to say it. It generally is. Even though Canada supplies Hollywood with a lot of on-camera talent, the production quality is generally better in the US.

    Vancouver is a beautiful place, but the people there are something else.

    I'm catching up on the season this past week and this weekend. An Amazing show IMO. I think she looks best as Cosima (or maybe I just have a thing for chicks in glasses).

    Lots of interesting goings on and I can't wait to finish an ep and go on to the next.

    There's a lot of us who find Cosima the most attractive. Glasses, sure. She's also got that smart thing going on. And she's a bit of a geek, which has an appeal to other geeks. Perhaps the most subtle but important aspect is that Cosima has an enthusiasm to her that the other clones tend to lack. Sarah's always in conflict, Alison is struggling with being wound tight, Helena's just broken, etc., but Cosima seems like she could be fun to be around. And while we might not realize that's a big factor, I bet it's one of the biggest.

    Plus she lives in Minneapolis, which gives me hope.

    And then reality comes crashing through the door, but I've managed to keep it at bay so far.

    I always like Allison. Maybe because she's the housewife in the suburbs and that relates more to the women I know.

    But she's crazy.

    And not the good kind.

    But if you could get Cosima into yoga pants, she'd look just as good.

    I've just finished watching season one - loved it!

    My rankings of the ladies in order of hotness. I'll add a spoiler tag since I list them all:

    Cosima: She was the sexiest, maybe just because she smiled the most.
    Sarah (and Sarah as Beth): hot, but too on edge all the time
    Alison: looks good in the yoga pants but too uptight
    Rachel: nice for a corporate drone
    Katja: put Cosima in the red hair and you've got something. Katja didn't do it for me.
    Helena: didn't seem human. Not hot.

    Not my favorite thing, either. But I can work around it.

    Nah, the actress who plays Cosima is much prettier.
