What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

It sucks so bad that this show was canceled! It had an amazing, new take on super powers (granted you disregard that it was a remake of an old concept...). There was so much sexy tension between most of the leading characters, Cara/John was probably my favorite but then we had Cara/Stephen, Stephen/Astrid and (kind of spoiler alert) Astrid/John. I had so much fun with these relationships and the fact that they all pretty much loved each other.

But enough about the drama, there is obviously a lot of action too. I did love the action as well, but as I've said before, CW=cheap and this is why I think that the show failed. They couldn't fully sell the action stuff. Altogether though I loved the show, mostly because of the drama but also because the good concept weighed up the, a bit cheap, special effects.

One more thing I didn't like was the ending, it was very rushed and therefore kind of unbelievable. This is obviously not something that the cast or crew should be held responsible for - they did the best they could with the screen time that they got - but it does mean that I (sadly) wouldn't recommend people to start watching the show today. I say, spend that time watching something current instead!
