Wasted ending to an otherwise brilliant show
7 February 2018 | by tedchuckSee all my reviews

I loved the series and the complex themes portrayed and introduced, but the last two episodes felt stilted and oddly compiled. Characters were killed off indiscriminately to the point of making the viewer apathetic and the scenes that were supposed to be most impactful fell flat. I could not get enough of the series up until the climax. Decisions made by the main characters seemed irrelevant or pointless. Even the action, otherwise excellent throughout the series, was disjointed. The ending reminded me of a low budget whodunnit. There was even extensive reuse of footage that seemed to unnecessarily lengthen the episode. Sad way to see the series end, even though I hope to see more from this universe.
