It was slow the first few episodes, but once you get past that it's interesting. All of the actors were well chosen. I can't think of any other show set in the 1930's depression, and this depicted those desperate times.

When i win the lottery jackpot I will bring back cancelled shows like Firefly, Carnivale & Voyagers from the 80's, but not Alpha (as sheldon already confirm that it better this way).

Dear HBO, Please bring this show back ! Finish the series "Godamit". Saw Nick Stahl outside of the Cheesecake Factory in Pasadena, CA. If they bring this show back - he's got to be in it ! He looks exactly like he does in the show except cleaner :)

Such an awesome show, but i was thoroughly disappointed with the end of the last episode. I hate when they cancel a series without a proper ending. They should at least end every series that gets cancelled with a satisfying ending. Cliff hangers are so annoying when they don't have a reprise.

Amazing first season. Season 2 was a let down though it's still better than most shows in their prime.

Some of the best television you will see. Cant find the words to justify it, just gutted it has ended. The characters, storyline, locations, perfect.

Too bad this one was cancelled, some really great performances, and a hell of a story. 5/5

Amazing. Loved every episode. No idea why hbo canceled but you really cant beat this series. I was worried when i was getting to the end it was just going to leave you hanging, which it does, but you do get some closure from the 2 seasons. 10/10

I thought this series was top class ! I watched the 2 seasons in 3 days . Really well written and I loved all the crazy characters and freaks. The costume and scenery depts really captured the essence of the depression era 30s . Brother Justin is superbly creepy.....I loved the Hoochie Coochie dancers too ! What a bummer they have cancelled it after 2 seasons,i'm pissed now as they have left season 2 on a real cliffhanger. Still worth watching though. Really enjoyed this 10/10!
