With all the supernatural shows out there this is definitely one of the best , the last episode made you look forward to another season only to find out it was canceled , I am hoping one of the networks picks this up because I feel it will be worth it . I read where Fox knew after the 1st episode there wasn't going to be a 2ND season so why give us the viewers an ending like that I think that was just cruel to put us through that at least you could have ended it without a cliffhanger. Shame on you Fox
