This first season worked quite well. I was sad it wasn't extended for a third season. Damn cliffhangers.

The worst thing SyFy did with this show was shoehorn it into the Warehouse 13 / Eureka universe. They had a chance to make a... for lack of a better word, realistic superhero show, but couldn't help weirdify it.

Ahh yeah, I remember that crossover. It was kind of weird.

It's too bad that this show didn't get picked up a few years later and produced as part of SyFy's current slate. It fits in well with the more (sometimes semi-)serious stuff they've got going on with The Expanse, Hunters, Killjoys, and Dark Matter.

Seconding the cliffhanger. Dammit.

I thought this was a pretty cool concept for a show, really.

Agreed that this show deserved a better hand than fate dealt it. Of course that's pretty much the story of television.

yeah, see also: New Amsterdam, Firefly, Dead Like Me, Pushing Daisies, etc.

Oh god New Amsterdam. That show was super cheap to produce and so awesome. I can't believe they didn't let them get a full season out.
