I haven't seen the last five episodes yet (pls no spoilers), but it definitely seemed to be getting a little better as the stakes got higher. I never thought it was as bad as some said but maybe in a mini-series situation it can be much more focused and play out the story it could have been. I've always liked the premise so maybe it was trying to draw it out for 22 episodes that did it in. It could actually be good as a mini-series.
