Charlie Jade on Sci-Fi: About Damn Time
I still lust for a second season, so this getting a US airing kicks ass.
The pilot grabbed me because it just felt so different. Some of the early episodes were a bit rough, but the show put me off balance, and I had to really pay attention because it wasn't going to dumb down or spoonfeed, and that kept me watching. It kept getting better and better (I discovered after watching that the showrunner swapped out the writing team after the first several episodes), and I'd put the second half of the season on par with the best of BSG.
Also: Avoid spoilers. There are some very cool reveals that took me by surprise.

So does this series actually end or is it another one of Sci-Fi's failed series pickups where I'll invest a bunch of hours getting into it only to discover it was cancelled before the writers could wrap up any of the plotlines?
It's a full season of 20 episodes. I thought there was a decent amount of resolution by the season finale. At the same time, I really want to see where they'd go in a second season.
