Happy to hear...and from the ratings, I see I'm not alone in the happiness. Almost stopped watching midway through Season one, but, ironically, after they got that cure (took all season) the scripts got livelier and the action got more intense, a lot more intense. Now if they'd just not cancel Braindead, I'd be really happy. Oh well...

I thoroughly, thoroughly enjoyed the first two seasons and after the way the last season ended, with the (SPOILERS AHEAD)
... shooting/presumed death of Shaw, I was really looking forward to the third season, but the direction they went with it was incredibly disappointing to me. The way the program skipped forward, passing right by all of the incredibly ripe-for-the-taking story elements of restoring a national society post-apocalypse really surprised me. Instead they chose to just dive right into semi familiar territory with a hostile foreign element holding the cure and members of the crew hostage, forcing big giant dick Tom Chandler to swoop in and save the day. I couldn't make it past the third episode of this current season before deleting the remainder of season's schedule. It was a gigantic let-down. Had they chosen to, their writers could have put together one hell of a drama that focused on the challenges of rebuilding the community, the nation and even the world after a plague like the one they endured and there would have easily been a place for Chandler and the crew of the Nathan James in such an story. Such a shame. :-(

I always thought this show would be canned after the first season, didn't think it was original and the concept really didn't lend itself to longevity, bunch of peeps stuck on a ship too claustrophobic; I didn't not like it much. I was always thinking this should be a screwball comedy -30 minute max taking the piss out the genre. I don't know but every time I watched it the thought would cross my mind. I'll probably binge it one day. In fact I think I might have already made a mental note to do that. I always binge 'how to get away with murder' 'suits,' 'the walking dead' and most everything on Netflix. I think 'house of cards' 'outcast' 'the night of' is the only shit I like to watch in real time like I need a break from.

I really like this show but the story line REALLY needs to improve to go on much longer... Cure, mutate, recure = BORING

I hope it is much better next season. Seasons 1 and 2 were awesome. This season is just putting along.

Really......disappointing? I liked season 2 a lot. How could you not like the idea of a nuclear sub against a battleship? Was it character specific stories, like the female Dr?

Glad to hear the show will be back, even though the story lines in season two and three were rather disappointing.
