    I never watched it and apparently, no one else did either.

    I do like J. K. Simmons though.

    It was too hard to know which world the plot was taking place in - the alpha world or the prime world.

    I watched the first season. Took multiple viewings to figure out what was going on. Was going to wait until after all the episodes of this season were out and do a binge watch. Not going to invest the time now if they are cancelling it after 2 seasons.

    I like the show, and that's why it's canceled... I liked Quarry, that's why it was canceled...
    but fuckin Big Bang Theory will be on until the end of time....

    I liked season one but season two bored me to tears. I kept watching though, so fuck me.

    It was a bit too bleak for it's own good.
    ...but all of that was a part of what made the show so different and a pretty decent watch.

    The basic overall mood of this show made it difficult to watch.
    So dark(..physically and mentally.)...so mysterious...so confusing.

    I am sorry that it was cancelled...but I am not surprised.
    Maybe some other company will pick it up for another season...but that is probably unlikely.
    Maybe they can finish off the story in decent book or two.

    That will be your own loss and not theirs.
    You'll miss the strange episode that shows how everything got started.

    Is a part of getting old that TV Shows just come and go without you knowing a damn thing about them? Never heard of this show till just now.

    I enjoyed Barry, Happy, and The Tick.

    I started the second season and fell asleep within 15 minutes. Not a good start.
