Please renew this show. I absolutely, 100%, love, love, love this show. I can’t wait to watch it every Sunday night.

Cancel it. It was a great show but the writing is just awful this season. I’ll miss it, but it’s been ruined. Such a waste.

It’ll likely get at least a fourth season, just to get syndication, but unless they fix the mess they’ve made of the show it won’t get a fifth.

This show is legend! Must be renewed, it serves as an inspiring reminder to everybody who sees it that there is more to life that what it seems. There is always hope and this show reminds us that things will get better in life if you truly believe and hold faith in your heart.

Please Please Renew. I just started watching and got all caught up on Hulu and and am so hooked.

4th season is likely, But if the writers continue muddling up their writing as they started to do in Season 2 (too many things happening, other characters losing focus, main characters being weirdly inconsistent), I’m not sure if a 5th season is ahead. And that would be a tragedy.


Angie April 6, 2014 at 10:18 pm

So many characters are so WAY out of character now. It’s just awful. Too bad. : (
