Decent show, although they had such potential to make this amazing and they never took it. Now it is just like any other show which is a shame.

I liked the fresh concept of this show.

As other reviewers have said, this was a promising start. It has a lot of tension and drama, without sacrificing too much in terms of realism or believability. It wasn't until episode 3 that the science hit teh stupid. I'm impressed.

The characters haven't developed totally yet, but there are some interesting situations where there can be some real depth. The political focus on power and control at any cost is quite disturbing and can apply to many of today's issues, so there is plenty of room for social protest and possible solutions. Time will tell!

Too bad the show was cancelled. Had a great storyline to be a success. Actors were great.

Apparently a lack of babies means an overabundance of conspiracies in this infertile alternate world.

Can't really figure out why it got cancelled. It was a very relevant show to our near future. To see political side as well as scientific aspect of population control among so many other issues that will rise up from such a topic. The show could have had a real future but barely had time to develop on the characters let alone on the topic.

The show had kind of a weird premise.... I'm not surprised it didn't do well.

Was a decent show, they had the potential to make this a great show but it was then flushed down the toilet.

The science is not quite correct, and the plot lagged halfway through.

It feels like they had a light-bulb moment that then flickered and went out before they could make anything into a show that would continue past it's first season.

Quite frankly, I found this to be a deadline plot which was a little boring

Nice plot but boring to watch.

A loser from the start. Bad premise, actors, writing, etc.

It's weird and strange but it had potential. It could have been better but I think it would have improved with more time.

A shame it got canceled after just one season - really had potential.

I'm not really surprised the show wasn't renewed. It was OKeish as a summer TV series, but had little going for it. Never cared about what happened. And it's a shame because the plot was a good idea, but they didn't manage to execute it well enought to make me feel invested.
