I haven't watched the finale yet. Just wondering if the series has concluded or will there be a season 2. I have to say that I really enjoyed watching Dylan McDermott. What an actor!

I thought the premise of the show and the acting was superb. There could be a longer tv life if their writers are very creative.

I think the show is terrific - especially Dylan McDermott - what an actor!! But I do think it needs to end WITH AN ENDING because it cannot continue to go on and on like Prision Break - loved that show but finally stopped watching cause it just was getting ridiculously long and unrealistic

Way to complicated and drawn out! My hubby watches and I watch occasionally and i have lost the plot totally which means its too plot is too complicated! Personally I wouldn't mind if this one didn't come back! !

Hostages is the best show EVER! It has been something to look forward to every week, and I will miss it!!!! The storyline may have been difficult to continue for long, but I was so hoping it would go on longer than it has. I LOVE IT! Great cast--Toni Collette has always been a favorite of mine. It was a great show!!!!!

I have watched every episode. It's getting way drawn out, it's getting slow, hope there will be a real ending soon. Please don't go for another season, I can't handle this anymore, worse than LOST!

Things that just don't make sense. I have been an admirer of Toni Collette for years - but in this episode, "Loose Ends," when she finds out Morgan's bf has been SHOT TO DEATH, she barely reacts, and then we see her in the next scene, arm around her daughter, and soooooo understatedly saying, "I'm so sorry." That whole thing with a dead bf in her home, is so fraught with crazy-ness, her emotions, which she seems to have in COMPLETE CONTROL, should have skyrocketed. NUTSO. Maybe they just didn't give her more in the script. Well, fight for it Toni. I am just seriously not thrilled. Toni,,,,,I expect MORE from you.
