The ending obviously left a lot hanging in the air. I hope they don't completely reboot the premise next season like CBS has been prone to do with their summer shows. Zoo became a completely different entity in its second season.
A little late to the party, but just got through with the finale. I agree that everything about the show is ridiculous, but dammit, I don't care! I liked it more than any of the other CBS summer fillers and will definitely be back next year, god-willing, to find out what happened to Bennet (rescued by Resist!
commandoes, no doubt), the ICBM's in the air (they'll either be shot down by antimissile defenses or detonated mid-air when Darius & Liam regain control of TESS), and how our heroes will use magnetism & the gravity tractor to save humanity! Oh, and what the next dance number will be down in the bunker!
The leader of Resist!
was a surprise, as she was completely new to the show. I figured Darius's uncle would be the mysterious head of the organization (and he still might be). As for their stated reason to blow up the aircraft carrier, I thought Harris' son and the other Resist!
geeks got out before the building was blown up. Wasn't that his reason for going there and warning them? For super smart hackers they're not smart enough to flee a building that's about to be blown up? I just figured the four bodies found in there were faked or something. So I guess next season will revolve around the fight against those guys and abandon the political intrigue angle. But that's just... Salvation speculation!
Seriously, I've seen a lot worse. And the cast is enjoyable, as PS says above. It's silly fun, and what more do you want from a summer fill-in ferpetesake? If you want plausible, scientifically accurate sci-fi with a dose of action, political intrigue and a little romance, you've got 'The Expanse' coming back in a few months. Ya'll need to lighten up.
