Summary of "Season 2 - Showed some promise": I thought the first season of the show was predictable and a bit boring, but the second season introduces some new characters and plot twists that I found interesting. If the showrunners had taken the finale of season1 and moved it up to mid-season then they probably would have kept enough viewers to get a second season that would air. Season 1 was too much of the same thing, and it was slow.
Fans of the show will want to buy this to complete their collection. I think these 6 episodes are better than most of the episodes in season 1. (read entire review)
Summary of "Season 1 - Well, I saw that coming!": I'm impressed that Fox can put together good DVD sets for shows that may not be the best on the air. I didn't hate this show, but I found it was way too easy to get ahead of the story, so when something was revealed I was patting myself on the back instead of being surprised. Actually, I think the predictability of the show was the only thing that kept me watching; I needed to make sure my theories were right, so I kept watching. A friend told me that the writing on the show was horrible, but I was only 3 or 4 episodes into it, and I didn't think it was that bad, but it definitely got worse as the episodes went on. I'm not surprised the show was cancelled, but I hope those final few episodes make it to DVD so fans of the series can see them. (read entire review)
