I hear ya, Brolan. But a cobbled-together ending is still better than no ending at all (hopefully). I has occured to me that the whole DVD set business may have caused (or may be causing) a reversal in the thinking of the network types.

They used to think that if they ended a series with an actual conclusion that nobody would watch in syndication because they already knew how it turned out. (One of the few early series that did finish its story, The Fugitive, bore that out as it did poorly in syndication despite being a top-notch drama.)

Now, they might be thinking that if they have an ending they'll be able to sell DVD's labled "Complete Series" more readily than if it were left open-ended.
But ABC get's the money if it's on Hulu, right?

NBC owns Hulu, so they still won't be getting all that much money.

After a couple of dumb episodes the last two have been much better. Still that mafia dude should be fucking toast by now.

Hopefully the Chinese fella will off him in a reveal of his ruthless side.

I can see that if this went on much longer it would turn into the "Let's see how much we can make Mrs. XO suffer" show. I find that annoying.

She's just going to be held in his bathroom for a month and nothing else is going to happen to her in THAILAND... Where is she? It's a seedy little country were they let you buy vital internal organs and then play with the corpse afterwards.

Never leave home.

Usually only %96 of you comes back, but that's just about healthy bowel movements most of the time.

I'm really not paying attention anymore.

It got stupid and ridiculous a long time back.

Yeah, the first episode or two were totally engrossing, but they quickly resorted to spinning wheels and I barely pay attention when it's on anymore.

I'm only still watching because I know there are only a few more episodes and I'm curious how they'll leave it. If this is any sign of how it would go for multiple seasons, I'd bail right now.

It's rare when someone goes "I'd ditch this show if it wasn't already canceled".

Ugh, why didn't they just kill blondie off? At the very least it would give the make-up crew a break from trying to cover up her acne for HD. Clearly it just isn't possible.

Anyway, there are some elements that work on this show, but way too many that miss the mark. The XO, the wife, the arms dealer woman who wants the helmet cam, the evil black dude... just terrible. I think you guys got it right, see what kind of endgame is on offer, now that we know they don't get to drag it out.
