The series has good acting, interesting plot twists, and many intriguing concepts.

I would actually consider this a prematurely canceled show, because that's what it really feels like.

8 people wake up in a strange hotel in a virtually deserted town..from which there is no escape.

The major problem that most people have with this series stem from the false advertising associated with it. We were told multiple times that there would be complete answers by the end of summer, and let's just say that there were far more questions than answers, missing plot lines, and plenty of set up for some kind of sequel. Now, we look online and we find out that this was not a "mini-series" as it was billed, but instead, a first season. Add to this the fact that the show was often aired at different times each week, and that NBC completely missed airing one whole episode on TV, and you have one of the most messed-up releases of a new show that I've ever seen. That answers a few of the problems that can be attributed to the show, but certainly not all.

That being said, I was one of the few who tuned in weekly, and who saw the missing episode, and I have to say, I found this series rather intriguing. It works like a combination of "the Prisoner" and "Ten Little Indians" by Agatha Christie, or perhaps you're aware of the movie "Identity", which shared many of the little idiosyncrasies. Basically, it's a bunch of people who are kidnapped and put in a 1950's town, and you have to figure out just what's going on. Various obstacles are thrown their way, from the town randomly shutting down rooms and gassing the inhabitants, to the arrival of six body bags, which was supposed to cause them to start to figure out that only one of them was to be left alive at the end of all this. They try to escape, they try to fight back a bit, but we slowly see "the Program" slipping in and taking over for many of the characters.

There are some things that I still struggle with, even after watching the finale.

This show was so good it was scary. I have never gotten into a show so quickly or thoroughly. Unfortunately from what I am reading, it may have been the one season. I was worried about that when they kept moving the time slot and it ended up on Saturday night but I followed it whatever slot they moved it to and never missed an episode. When they moved it to Saturday, I bought the Season Pass from Amazon Video On Demand because I was afraid if I didn't I wouldn't get to see the end. Unlike other blowhards that were upset that "all" their questions were not answered, it just made me want to tune in to see the next season. I hope there is one and if NBC doesn't pick it up again, it would be a wonderful addition to SyFy, USA or TNT. I would hate to see something this good go by the wayside due to the shortsightedness of network executives.

This episode was unaired on the series and filled in a lot of the blanks/questions when I watched it. I had tivoed the last 3 shows of the series and just got around to watching them, quite a few weeks after the end of the series. I was partway through the next-to-last show when I realized there was a missing episode. Also, the numbers shown by the network were different than on Amazon, too. According to the network numbers, episode 12 was the one missing. But take my word for it - episode 11 shown on Amazon is the missing episode and episodes 12 and 13 were the final episodes both shown on August 28, 2010,even though the network shows them as 13 and 14. It was well worth the $1.99 to me to be able to watch the whole show as it was meant to be watched.

I just finished watching all 13 episodes on netflix,and this show is very addicting.Why is it all the shows like these that have lots of mystery,twists and turns and require some thought,never make it.The finale left too many unanswered questions,I would like to see a cable network bring this show back to life,but seeing as its been almost 2 years since it originally aired,I guess Ill just have to use my imagination to answer all the questions.

I watched the whole 13 episodes in 1 weekend, I just loved it and I thing the finale is very appropriate for a Mystery Drama. The thing about this TV Show is that is not the regular US production, the show was financed by 2 major TV chains from Mexico and Italy and filmed in Mexico, and sold to the market in several countries, in USA NBC ended up acquiring the rights to broadcasted, I guess it was an experiment that in my opinion turned out extremely well. Got love the mystery throughout the series!
