Only bad thing about this show is that it ended so soon.

emonquente (Oct 13, 2012)

I knew it wasn't going to make it, and I honestly saw why. The show was far from crap, but it wasn't great, was barely really 'good', and lacked direction.

I got accused of tossing it under the bus for being a cop drama, but that isn't why I did it. I tossed it under because without direct the cop drama genre was all that was left. Just like I would toss a romantic comedy that lacked focus under the bus from having only its genre to stand on.

I admit, it was a great idea (helluva lot better than the premise to Castle, and far better main character too) -- but my previous arguments about its flaws remained in tact, and it wasn't about having to think - it was about a lack of engagement - having to think would have -improved- the show. I mean, my studies may give me a bit of an advantage in seeing where this show was going, and the directions it was considering but failing to go . .. but that doesn't diminish the fact that some of that is clear even without trying to analyze it.

I don't blame the audience, nor necessarily the writers - but the cumulative of everything that went in to it being just slightly off-key from the lighting to the acting to the writing to the audience.

It wasn't horrible, it didn't 'need' to be cancelled based off that -- but it wasn't great, and it didn't get the attention requisite to stay on because it fell so squarely in that middle ground, and was therefore so very uninteresting.

One of the best series I've ever seen, great storyline too!

ReinonXXL (Aug 11, 2012)

Una auténtica pena la cancelación de la serie. Los últimos episodios se salen!!

Wanderlust (Jun 02, 2012)

I'm disappointed they cancelled it, but at least thay've given to the show an actual end!

pies (May 28, 2012)

When I saw it ended I thought it just ended, because a show like this one shouldn't go into second season, it just makes no sense. The show started slow, almost procedural, but towards the end it got really interesting. I can't say I didn't enjoy it :)

viniciusbarros (May 23, 2012)

@az25 I couldn't agree more! Where's the "like" button?

But from the moment I watched the first ep. I knew the show would be canceled. Isn't the kind of television that the average american likes. If the audience has to think a little, the show won't succeed.

az25 (May 21, 2012)

@furbul Shows like this need to breathe, and executives back in the day knew this. Today, they're just catering to the fact that everyone has no attention span, and that there are so many new shows every year, that people can't keep up. You gotta let some of these shows breathe.

I mean, shit. Another 6 or 8 episode order wouldn't have killed them. By the way, they were going up against ABC's Revenge, and CBS's The Mentalist, which are established, so Awake was screwed from the moment they put it in the Thursday night slot, so I'm not buying the viewers argument. There was no way they could pull 5-10 million.

@furbul I agree, but how many shows have had a bad season 1 and finally found their flow in the 2nd season. Parks & recreation / The office (us) etc. First seasons sucked, but from then on it was gold. This show definately picked up the pace and was getting really really good. Such a shame :(

furbul (May 20, 2012)

@curve You're right, but problem with this show is that writers played with the procedural format too long. Great episodes started couple weeks ago. Also that one with penguin was really good.

curve (May 20, 2012)

Problem is that americans are the most retarded ever. They think the walking dead is the best, because you can only enjoy it when you are braindead. If you have to use your brain even for the slightest thing (hey 2 worlds at the same time) they think it sucks and too much work.

Zeal (May 20, 2012)

As much as I like the show, it's just basic math like furbus says. This has NOTHING to do with competence. You should blame the average American viewer for not having patience to let the show grow, instead of the tv network.

furbul (May 20, 2012)

Oh come on, people. It had barely 2 million viewers. That's pathetic audience. Everyone would cancel it. I'm just hoping that finale will give us a proper closure.

az25 (May 18, 2012)

NBC is so incompetent. The series started off slow, but to cancel it now when it gets good? Sometimes you've got to let these shows breathe a little bit, especially these mid-season replacements. I bet Smash got a second season too.

Labyras (May 17, 2012)

Cancelled? I demand justice!

MarinaB (May 16, 2012)

Last episode was amazing, they're beginning to go somewhere... but it was cancelled. Can't believe it.

mindcrash (May 13, 2012)

It's NBC... what did you expect?

Retriev3r (May 12, 2012)

WHAT!? Are you serious?
No, c'mon... I was just starting to really love this show!

I mean why? Because you had to use a little bit of brain to follow?
I am pissed that people of the main-stream are only clever enough to be able to follow shows were every episode is excatly the same - like: CIS, Bones, and $#!t. But good for them that these kind of series are running endless.

I hate to see "Awake" having the same destiny as "Day Break" & "Life" which were also great shows.
Screw you NBC, but thanks for the season!
