  • Why not to watch NBC, CBS or ABC series in the first year

    9.0
    Many good series has been cancelled and replace with stupid reality shows. I have stopped watching series until I see they go for 2 seasons.

    Low rating?, I believe many viewers are feeling the same after spending a whole season watching a series and then without closure it gets cancelled.



    Not happy with ABC and CBS and ABC
  • It's alright.

    7.5
    -1 for a slow tempo in the story

    -2.5 for the most incomprehensible ending I've ever seen



    But it was nice to see a kind of story like this for short time.

    This is one of the best show i ever watched! None of the show out there give me so much deep thought like this one. It's not only the story of a man who dealing with the lost of family, it's about choices and making desicion. This make me think alot of myself too, "What if?"....

    Cancelling this awesome show is the biggest mistake of NBC, Well I'm not talking about if they're run out of ideas for the story line. SAVE AWAKE!!moreless

    Watched the entire season in one day. Couldn't stop watching as it was thrilling and intriguing the entire season. I'm really disappointed that they ended the show as there are very few shows out there these days which are so unique and well written.

    The ending leaves a lot of questions unanswered but still gives you some closure. Considering that they only had one season, I'd say they summed up the story very well in the time given.

    If you're considering whether not to watch it due to the fact it was canceled, then I would highly recommend watching it regardless as it is definitely worth the watch.moreless
