This show quietly came in, kicked ass, took names, and then quietly left. Unfortunately, I only heard about this show halfway into the first season but I was able to catch up quickly. Rarely do you watch a show and have the ability to say that there was not a single bad actor in the bunch. This was well-acted, with a stellar cast, great plot that could have been stretched out with twists and turns for many years or allowed for resolution and new story lines each season. The possibilities were endless, however, due to Starz' piss-poor marketing of the show, it did not have the viewership necessary to keep going. In addition, we now live in a culture where storytelling is expected to cater to those with shorter attention spans. I'm not being rude, there have been marketing studies showing that attention spans are shorter, and not for the younger generation, for EVERYONE simply because we've become accustomed to getting what we want now. If I want to know the weather, I don't have to turn on the weather channel and wait until they finally get to my city or wait for the local news to tell me, I can find out online in a second, or look at the weather app on my phone on the home screen. For some people, this has changed the way they want all of their information, and for others, we still want what we want quickly, but we can enjoy the crafting of a good story. We can enjoy layers of foundation being constructed and see the beauty and art of seeing it built into a spectacular finish. Ah well, they said there was hope that another network will pick it up for season 3, but I doubt it, these actors are excellent, which means their contracts are expensive. I hope I'm proven wrong about that last bit but it was nice to have the two seasons.
