I think I saw every show of this short lived series and I thought it was great--and had absolutely NO chance on network TV which is being devoured by reality and game shows. It had a great cast with good depth of characters and had it been given half a chance (or had been on non network TV) I think it would have found it's audience. There is little to no chance for a drama series on the networks these days...ER would have been cancelled in three airings in todays television climate. This show was DUMPED into mid summer Wednesday nights where building a new audience is difficult at best...and it was the kind of show you had to keep up with. I really liked Frank Langella's character facing his mortality, Elizabeth Mitchell and Naveen Andrews were both outstanding. There was some developement of each character==but it also seemed like they were showing episodes out of order, or skipping some, another bad plan by desperate TV executives that are under orders to make a quick buck and the hell with a quality show. I think it a horrible shame that there aren't more shows like this--The Street was another outstanding show that died quickly on the network
