Well I have the whole 2nd season to watch. Should I invest the time?

It's a very good show, I would.
It has no over-reaching arc that will die after cancellation.

Aw, man. I liked this show. It'll probably be replaced by a Five Points, NY era reality show.

I liked the show and the characters too but not enough such that I still have 6 episodes unwatched on my TiVo.
Should I just delete or is the watching worth it?

This is one that for me, I liked it well enough, but I record/watch so much other stuff as well that I didn't do a very good job keeping current. I, too, had six to eight eps on my DVR and wasn't sure if there may have been some that fell victim to space needed. I wound up deleting them unwatched.

It is (was) a good show. The last episode is a fitting conclusion, as it explores the connection between Corcoran, Freeman and Morehouse. It didn't end with a huge cliffhanger, just enough "hooks" for a 3rd season (which now won't happen)

I have most of the second season recorded but unwatched. I'll probably keep it and watch it sometime later.

i wonder if that's why there were 13 eps this season? there were 10 last season, and i looked it up thinking it was running longer this year.

oh well, it was a good run. on to ripper street...

The overall concept of the final episode didn't make much sense to me but at least there was no huge cliffhanger. This was a good series. I'll miss it.

I never watched it, but I was giving it some thought. If it's along the same lines as "Ripper Street" I'll pass. Not the greatest acting or storylines, IMHO.

Series Finale **SPOILERS**

There sure were some cliffhangers. But first off the majority of the finale I thought was pretty dumb. The three of them go after Booth as if they are the only ones who can do it. As it turns out an Army detachment got and killed Booth, so our heros' trip was wasted.

But here are the cliffhangers. The guy who was the boss over "General" Donovan (I forget his name in the show but I think he was played bye Daniel Baldwin but IMDb cannot confirm this) makes a threat to Morehouse Sr to produce Donovan's papers or there will be a "war." Later on Morehouse Sr offers to sell the papers to this guy for an agreed upon price. At the end of the episode when Corky returns and goes to the Paradise he finds it locked and breaks in the door. Here he finds a man and a woman dead and stuffed into barrels with blood leaking out of the barrels. (WHO ARE THEY? I think its the lady that took over when Eva was in jail and the bartender. Is that right?) Then he goes looking for Eva and cannot find her. We also see the guy who bought Donovan's papers with a bunch of other "proper" gentlemen waiting for Corky and lamenting that Corky doesn't take things seriously.

I got the feeling that the producers weren't quite sure they were being renewed or not so they closed up some story lines but still left some cliffhangers just in case they were renewed.
