The "cliffhanger" situation is set up and shown in less than a minute -- as if to say, "After all these adventures were over, a new unexplained thing happened."
I feared much worse. Anyone can survive without knowing how that one-minute cliffhanger was going to be followed up. Pretty clearly, the writers themselves didn't know what would happen next, and were waiting to get paid before they started thinking about it.
The show itself was exciting and had interesting foreign locations, though it did give the impression that all European countries were mainly made up of buildings with orange roofs. As for the management level of the CIA, mostly shown in its headquarters room filled with computers and young staff members -- wellsir, those guys in management changed their minds about whether they trusted the heroine or not, sometimes as often as three times in one episode, and always for inadequate or unexplained reasons. Trying to make sense out of why her friends had just become her enemies, or vice versa, would drive anyone crazy, but Judd herself had believable sequences on street level. There were good surprises, too. A pleasant six hours and ten minutes.
This DVD set of the first, and, sadly, ONLY season of this show provides ample evidence of the high quality product it was. The extras are quite fun, but apparently filmed long before the cast and crew got word of the show's cancellation. It's well worth the time to view - even with the cliff-hanger ending. I say shame on ABC for pulling the plug on this one way too soon.
