    OMG this was HORRIBLE to watch! I read the book in the spring and it was so good I could not put it down. Was a tad disappointed in the ending but the rest of the book was so good I did not mind. This show was almost unrecognizeable as the story I had read. That ruined everything for me. And now it’s going to have another season??? You have got to be kidding…….BOOOOooooooo!!! :-(

    Why such a long wait for next season ? Same thing happened when I got into Vikings.I’m 72 and not that many shows that I enjoy. Sick of golf,fashion,food, talk,game shows etc.

    Only watched it because I thought it was going to last for only the summer. Don’t like to wait another year for the ending.

    what a crappy last show. the writing was lame and the acting was just as bad. More than likely will not become a repeat viewer if it starts again.
