Amazing series, just sad to see it not continue
22 September 2011 | by oipluckie-543-610185See all my reviews

I started to watch this show not too long ago, and I have to say, I was surprised I haven't seen it sooner. A very good action series with a bit of comedy and depth to the characters. As you get further into the series, the characters' background starts to get more interesting. Oh and for those that like that bit of romance, it's in here too.

My favorite characters so far would have to be Guerrero and Chance. Just great to see two characters with such different personalities, working together and showing such loyalty to one another. Each episode just pulls you in, and making you want more, it's just too bad they're cancelling the series because "lack of viewers".

It's a top notch action series, that should be continued. I haven't seen a series like this in awhile with this kind of depth, story, action, and acting. I hope it somehow gets renewed, because honestly this is a really good show.
