    This is a great show! To imagine how dark the days were when man first started reaching for the stars bears telling. The pill had just been discovered. Unbelievable how far we’ve come in 50 some years for women, gays,African Americans and yes, the male of the species. I yelled at the screen so any times the first season. Such drivel on the main networks and here with MOS well developed characters.

    Honestly, I think it should be cancelled. This season disapoint me because there is no progression in the story. there is no suspense and doesn’t make me want to see more!
