It’s been a great series, always throwing up something new. I’d like to see at least another 2 seasons, I know Í’m not sick of it. It’s been one of the best sci fi series going around for a while. But as usual, when something is good, it’s ended before it should be.

Yes it should end. All dramatic stories should come to a planned end otherwise they spiral into ever more ridiculous plot lines. I agree this show has been great but it would be nice for the writers to wrap up all the story lines to give the audience completion, rather than be left hanging mid story when it finally gets canned.

Can’t believe this series is ending. Really enjoyed it but it seems the Aliens or us Earthlings are facing their final countdown you victory. Earth has to win!

Whilst it would be a bold and shocking move by the writers to have the humans lose completely, I doubt thats going to happen.
