Off the charts on the Bechdel scale, but it is a TV series.

Yes, are TV shows part of this site?

Passes so easily. There are many more female characters than male ones (at least those of significance to the plot) and their conversations are rarely about men. If it does happen to be about a man, it's probably about how to take him down because he's a threat.

This is a TV show not a movie. But it always passes the test. The core characters are female, although played by the same actress.

Sarah's main motivation in early episodes is getting access to her daughter through her foster mother. So it is somewhat Bechdel friendly even outside the clone element.
