Horrible ending since it was cancelled. Would have been "ok", if they picked it up next season or made a finale like CSI did...shame on these networks for having us invest our time in things that are cancelled b/4 they're even aired. I wish now that I hadn't even bothered to watch these last two.

I liked this show. I'm not crying my eyes out that it's gone but it was an entertaining time waster. I am however, once again, pissed off that yet another show gets canceled on a cliffhanger. Clearly they were setting things up for season 2 but that is now not to be. I'm not big on government legislating too many things ... but I would fully support a law that says if a network cancels a show on a cliffhanger they need to at least have a movie the next season to tie things up ... under penalty of death ... too extreme? (-1 star for ending on a cliffhanger)

Shame to have been cancelled. I really like the illusion tricks to capture the criminals. Just didn't like the final ending. I thought it would be a happy ending for all.
