This is one of the best SciFi shows I've seen in a long time. Im very sad to see it canceled. The new Battlestar and Heros are a close second. I wanted to comment more on Author: ben-mcfee from Canada earlier comments concerning the shows cancellation. The notion that a Right-wing political power may have someway canceled this show, is almost laughable if not sad. Read a biography! You watch way to much conspiratorial fiction. If the Right was "so" powerful Micheal Moore and Al Gore's stupid SciFi documentaries would have never seen the light of day. The silliness to think that this show would even be a blip on the Conservative Christian's radar is down right goofy. With shows like The West Wing, Saturday Night Live and The View lasting for years, you have to be an idiot to draw that conclusion.
