Out of boredom I started watching this yesterday and binged thru the 1st season.  Was surprised na 3 seasons na pala (flew under my radar).  Anyway it’s good - plot and acting wise.

Did not get around to watching this show, but I read that it is cancelled already, so Season 3 is the last season and everything ends unresolved with a cliffhanger.

Yes it was cancelled. Too bad.

But given how season 3 ended, the watching experience moving forward would have changed and not for the better.  Let me explain - season 3 ended with the start of an invasion by another alien race with whom the first invaders were at war with.  Season 4 would have been a special effects shootout which I do not care for. The strength of the series was character development and the humanity of its main characters despite the admittedly far-out plot.  Throughout the first 3 seasons the characters, dialogue and plot developments all remained believable - devoid of clichés and silliness that most shows in this genre fall for.   

TBH, I am more gutted about the cancellation of "Mind Hunters".  That one was building up to a great season 3 revolving around the truly sick BTK serial killer of Wichita, Kansas.  Mind Hunters gives me the creeps akin to when I first saw Silence of the Lambs.
