    Can Emma Ren can make a comeback in a separate timeline? Maybe future Eve gets killed and therefore never migrated back. I thought Emma was one of the better characters.

    Doesn't matter. The show has been canceled.

    I expected it to be cancelled. But I will watch the remaining episodes.

    Just a heads-up in case anybody else is still watching (;))...there will be another episode next Monday (6/4), then the final two episodes will be burned off the following Saturday (6/9).

    I'm glad I bailed after two episodes, but I also enjoy checking in on this thread for confirmation that I made the right choice. It is also somehow encouraging that there are a number of us who admit to sticking with garbage for longer than necessary and modifying our behavior since there really is so much better stuff on all the time nowadays. I did want to like this show, but saw the red flags early on. Still gonna see what you guys say about the rest of the season. For those who still enjoy the show, more power to you! :)

    Same here.
    I bailed when instead of hotwiring a working car she decided to rebuild the engine on a '70 Chevelle :)

    Other than the fact I made it three episodes, you took the words out of my mouth.

    And that makes about as much sense as them coming from the future. The entire premise is preposterous. But it doesn't stop me from enjoying it. Just like most shows have crazy premises.

    I didn't watch past the pilot, but I returned to watch the finale out of curiosity. I enjoyed it as a stand-alone hour of entertainment. I might not have caught all of the underlying threads, but as a simple story of detainees making their escape, it worked for me. Would it have worked without their timey-wimey stuff or the conspiracy of evil? We may never know (and it didn't make me curious enough to seek out earlier eps to find out).

    I watched the entire season. I'm not one to overly obsess on inconsistencies, cliches, or what have you so the criticisms of the show (or any show, for that matter) in this thread don't bother me. I'm glad that they resolved the main plot point and didn't leave a major cliffhanger. The things in the last few minutes of the show to set up a never to be next season didn't really grab me so I'm not going to wonder what might have been.

    I watched the whole season too. It was a great idea ruined by (IMO) bad writing. Stupid people keeping stupid secrets from each other and - I mean, yes, I understand that there must be a suspension of disbelief, but things that could have been taken care of in 5 minutes took 2 or 3 episodes...

    I love Steve Zahn and the rest of the cast was strong, but the writing-UGH!
