Oh, no. Such a fun and pointed satire about our current political dysfunction. Set up so perfectly for season 2, with Luke headed to Wall Street, but a bug in a cherry blossom in NYC. There are very few shows I miss when they're gone, but this will go on that list.

Loved the show. Finally got to watch something out of the norm. Hope there is a season 2.

just read where MEW will be in the third season of Fargo, so if Braindead does come back, it will probably be without her. Great show, loved every minute of it.

A live insect queen flew about during the last scene.
That's hinting at the possibility of another alien invasion and a series renewal.
It's a cheeky, chirpy, cute and cuddly show. Well worth continuing.

I don't think it's meant to go any further than the one season.
Listen to the song at the end. Dad is fine,brother got a great job on wall street,laurel and Gareth moved in together.
All tied up with a neat little bow.
Loved it,but it's over.

A very good show. Good characters. Tony Shalhoub is always great. Mary Elizabeth winstead is fabulous. The comedy SiFi format is always appreciated. I watched all episodes and enjoyed them all. The premise is so close to actual DC behavior it was prophetic as well. The final episode wrapped up the story, but I still hope it's not over.

What did they expect? Of course the series got cancelled. Its dumb.

Boy gets girl (girl gets boy), et cetera, dressed up in a savvy, campy political science bubble. Great idea, well executed with a fine cast of talented folks. Who could ask for more? This past week (end of August) was an exceptional episode for a romantic comedy standpoint. Well done story plotting seasoned an achingly poignant rebounding away of the primary and secondary love interests. BRAVO!

So, I was checking to see what Mary Elizabeth Winstead was up to, and thus discovered BrainDead. Not to spoils anything, I didn't look to see what it was about and just started watching. Well, I'm glad I did.
This show has a little of everything I like, including Mary Elizabeth Winstead. It's a mix of politics, horror, Sci-Fi, conspiracy theory, drama, and some cheeky comedy and such.
That said, I'm pretty picky, so chances are I may dump this series if it doesn't keep up with my standards. But after watching the first 3 episodes, I think it may be a winner.
If I do end up liking season 1, then I only hope CBS does not screw up and let it go, like they did with Limitless.
