Moon was quite interesting. However, instead of the clones being born as babies, they are born as fully grown adults with the memories of the original (I presume this is so so they can take over the job of the original immediately). And yet there are wide variations in behaviour.

If not, i dunno why they put the memories of the original into the clones.
