At the end of tonight’s episode it said that next week was the finale of Awake. Not the season finale. So I Googled it and according to Wikipedia, “On May 11, 2012, NBC canceled the series after one season.”
I kept having mixed feelings about following it to season 2, but I guess I don’t have to worry about it anymore. The funny thing is I thought that this was a great episode and that if there were more like this then it might be a great show.
I have to wonder if the producers saw the end coming earlier, because two weeks seems too short to slap together a couple of final shows.
I’ve got about 3 or 4 of these on the DVR so after next week I’ll just run through them. I think that it is a great premise but the execution was weak. They could have gone a while with the split lives solving each other’s cases without the conspiracy.
I quit watching it as soon as the conspiracy issue popped up. It’s a shame because I really thought that it could survive alone on the cross reality clue mechanism that they used. I found that intriguing
People keep saying they hated the conspiracy part, but it was really only in two episodes other than the finale. And even then, it was confined mainly to one universe and wasn’t a major part of the episode.
