Since the final episode wrapped up the story, I didn't think the series was going to be renewed. Still, it was a good satire about how the political hardliners (e.g. Ted Cruz, Freedom Caucus) are obstructionists to getting anything done in Washington. They're adamant about doing everything their way, like the One Way and No Way groups in the show.

This was a great show but I admit, to anyone unfamiliar with the pedigree of this production team it might take a bit more patience than most viewers were willing to give. This is the age of nanosecond attention spans and this show required a little more intelligence than the average toddler to enjoy.I'll miss it and I hope the Kings come back with something just as smart but perhaps toned down enough to appeal to a broader audience.

Oh my, I loved this show, all the shows that require intelligence seem to be the first to go... So sad...

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.
