    1. That show was unfairly cancelled. Definitely underrated. They were 10x better than the last three Terminator films that have come out. It might be unlikely but I hope it comes back one day, even if its a TV movie to resolve it, I think it deserves that based on that cliffhanger. The show was heading in a very interesting direction.
