    Um, you did see the part about it being cancelled, right?

    Although some speculate we'll get to see it this summer.

    I saw it after that post...but, there's only one episode and since it's supposed to be self contained, I'll take my chances it shows up this summer. If not, it could be 45 minutes or so of something I enjoyed, or not. I've spent longer than that on series that were supposed to be good and weren't.

    They have aired two episodes so far. It was reportedly canceled after the second one.

    I just checked epguides.com and it lists episodes 3 thru 8 as being UNAIRED.

    OK, I saw only one on the ABC channel in Plex. I'm sure that will catch up at some point. I may wind up waiting and watching this in a binge, if they bring it back for the summer.

    Definitely NOT self-contained. It's the first episode of an eight eps mini-series.

    One can certainly save/watch these first two, and hope they air the rest at some point. But to watch them by themselves is a waste of time. They were ok, not great, but decent. And the only reason I stuck with it (after the 1st ep) is the story itself is interesting, and I wanted to see how it played out. Otherwise, it was a B grade show and I wouldn't have kept watching.

    SP deleted. Don't really care whether it airs or not. Passion deflated.

    I meant self contained, as in a one season mini-series.

    Good, that means I can complete the set, copy all to PC, and then forget to watch any of it.

    But I'll have the complete set.

    My SP picked it up too. How many episodes will there be? This was #3 I think.

    Watched thefinal episode yesterday. I'll say again that I really liked it and am bummed that it was so badly marketed.

    I did get one episode that only recorded for 1/2 hour. Don't think I missed too much.

    We still have one episode left to watch. We really enjoyed it as a whole.

    I can't believe that this program wasn't more popular. I just finished the last episode and it was great! I'm glad they finally released all 8 and let us see the end.
