I thought that was a pretty good (though terribly predictable) series/season finale. The last 5 minutes was great, and left a dozen questions that will never be answered. Kind of like Lost without all the wasted hours and expectations... :-b

2 Things
1) The writers probably wrote this long before it was determined that it won't be back.
2) There's still an outside chance it's picked up by a different network.

I don't know why I'm in this thread right now, fortunately there haven't been any spoilers, but I'm 2 episodes behind. I plan on catching up in the next few days, one of my friends told me he thought tonight was great though so I'm looking forward and I'll return to this thread to post my thoughts when I catch up ;-D

I really enjoyed the season as a whole, thought it was interesting how the portal brought the planet rather than just some crafts/planes/vehicles/people individually. Definitely leaves plenty open for next season, but they tied up several storylines. I'd like it to be picked up by another network but would not cry if it is not.

the planet being brought over makes me wonder why the hell they needed to kill all of us
actually, it makes me wonder why they even needed our solar system
couldn't they have simply teleported to another "goldilocks zone" and been fine?

These consecutive posts make me happy I never watched this show. :-S

The show really picked up pace in the last 10 episodes or so, making it actually enjoyable to watch except for anything involving Sean Walker or Leila. They had 22 episodes to make them likable and they failed in doing so.

Also, the whole "sun going supernova" thing is ridiculous, because the sun would have to go through an expansion phase that would make the planet uninhabitable or make the planet inhabitable for far too short a time to develop complex life (anything significantly more complex than bacteria), plus you can't tell when a star is "about to go supernova" because what the hell. I mean, this show started to grow on me because of all the characters that weren't Sean Walker and Leila to the point where I could look past the plot holes until the last 5 minutes. That ruined it completely. First, Leila's pregnant. They built that up with dramatic tension like it mattered but literally no one in the world found that shocking or even remotely interesting. I would rather she have said, "I have incurable AIDS cancer of the potato the doctors replaced my heart with and I'm going to die in 8 seconds, also it's contagious and you, Sean Walker, also have it". Jesus, those characters are so terrible. Second, Lee telling Sean Walker "I know a bunch of crucial information and we're friends now so I can tell you everything. I have to go now." What a freaking cop out. They have to decode a scroll and translate it from some alien language instead of just being, you know, told by people that know what's on it. And then there's that thing JTSluggers said about beaming the planet over. Thank god they made a plot hole so big, otherwise they wouldn't be able to fit the planet through.

I watched the last 10 episodes in the last 3 days and up until the last 5 minutes I was disappointed that they canceled it. Let's all go watch Chuck instead.

Flash Forward did the same thing and I'm still kind of hoping another network picks that show up
