    I really liked this show. Loved the storyline and looked forward to seeing this show every week. I am really disappointed that the show is ending – hopefully they will be able to wrap it up versus just ending the episodes with no closure.

    I have enjoyed this show immensely. The story line is fresh and compelling. I was compelled to watch week after week because of the cliff hanger endings. I don’t know what ABC wants out of a show but I guess it’s not great acting and and excellent story line. I am sorry to see it go.

    This is very typical of ABC and usually why I don’t commit to watching new shows on ABC they rarely support the show and give them what they ned to survive. My husband and I really enjoy this show and are so bummed it was cancelled. Burned again for watching a show on ABC I have learned my lesson don’t fall for the same trap if you start watching a show on ABC they will cancel it.

    Last Resort is the show that got me back to ABC and I see they still are using that good ole quick trigger that took them from first to last. They really need to fire some people quick because ABC used to be the best channel on tv and CBS was worst.

    Geeeee, My teenagers (boy and girl) and I DVR the series and really enjoy watching the show on weekends (as Thursday is a school night). Its the one thing that we all agree we can watch together and we look forward to it each week, it sucks that ABC has pulled it. :(

    My boyfriend and I DVR the series every week and look forward to watching it together so much!! We both really love this show!! It’s upsetting that they are taking it off the air. The storyline is so interesting, exciting, suspenseful, we love it! And we can both agree on a show which is awesome! Anything we can do to have Abc reconsider?
