    BravoFan, have you watched the finale yet? Great series. Seems almost too realistic for comfort, you know. I had read on TV Guide Online that a sequel is "in development." Don't if that means it is really coming back, but I'm guessing someone has given a green light to writing a script at least.

    Nope, still haven't seen it yet. It's on my Tivo still, but for some reason I tend to watch all the 1-hour shows first and it just sits there.

    I think you also have to be in the right mood to watch it because unlike some shows, this one you really need to pay attention to or you can get lost. I remember in one of the episodes I was also trying to pay bills/balance the checkbook, etc... and I ended up rewatching 1/2 of it because I was confused.

    It's a shame it wasn't longer. And what a great cast. I think they did a really poor job of marketing the show, though. I accidentally found out about it one morning when the Regis and Kelly show was on in the background and I saw Dylan McDermott on it and thought I might as well check it out.

    It is hard to multi-task with shows like this, huh? I hope it does come back. I still miss The Agency on CBS which dealt with terrorist storylines too, though not in the unique manner that this show did.

    Grok, just wanted to let you know I finally saw the finale last night!

    Great! I'm so sad to see it over. I was so crushed when Raza was killed.

    Yeah, it was sad to see Raza get killed. Was definitely one of the good guys. At least he was able to save 3 of the boys. Really terrible to see such young minds warped like that - which is why the terrorists go after them in the first place. On a related note, I just started reading the 9/11 Commission Report. I've only reached pg. 78, but so far I've read some interesting background on the formation of Al Qaeda, Bin Laden, and history of the Middle East countries and their problems. Though it is obviously a sad reminder of 9/11 events, it is very informative.
