    One can only hope that NBC finally came to their senses and realized how foolish this idea was

    Yes, but there are 2 more episodes in the guide that will be aired. At least they were there last night when I was doing some Series Link pruning to get rid of all the other fatalities.

    I wonder if they filmed an alternate season ending to provide closure, just in case?

    Who knows. I'm waiting on you guys to tell me if it's worth watching or not once the show ends. No good ending means I delete all the episodes and not think twice about it. :lol:

    Same here. We've watched them all except last week's. So one in the can and two to go. Not sure if it's worth the 2+ hours. :p

    Reading this makes me want to watch, but they could all just be blowing smoke. :shrug:

    I haven't watched a single episode yet. I'm waiting for it to end and hear that it had a good ending before I invest any time in it.

    Except it says a 2 hour finale ends tonight. My DVR shows 1 hour tonight and the season finale next week.

    Same here. I guess they changed their mind on scheduling?

    I believe a one hour episode of "Awake" which is described by one guide as "Part 1 the two part season finale" will be aired tonight and the other part will be a one hour episode a week from tonight on most NBC affiliates. Of course, we all know it is the series finale.:(

    I realize that. The article said it would be a two hour finale airing from 9 to 11. My, nor anyone else's DVR reflects that. That's all I was saying.

    It is getting close ... this week's show got deeper into the story and the preview for next week seems good.

    I wonder about NBC ... too many shows gone each year. Choosing favorites on a future schedule is almost like participating in a dead pool.

    Well, it's over. So did "Awake" get a good ending or not?

    I have not watched it yet. I was waiting for the commercials to be removed by AutoHOP. :)

    Yes, IMHO. No loose ends. Wife and I watched the last 3 episodes tonite, and the last two were especially good, IMHO.

    My .02? Keep 'em for the summer when there's nothing else to watch. You'll be glad you did.

    You just know the route that a bold sci-fi concept like "Revolution" is going to take on NBC. Probably was a very cool original pilot story, very edgy, lots of biting societal metaphors to todays issues, political overtones.

    Then the NBC censors and bean counters take over, then the corporate execs have to vet it and remove anything remotely offensive to even potential ad clients and/or their wives and children and rabbis and priests and clergy.

    And by the end, you have the standard, safe, brutally formulaic network show: A hero, young teen love, a mysterious threat that is never revealed, a central love affair with the hero, etc. Basically Falling Skies meets Jericho meets V meets Terra Nova meets The River. You could write these plots in your sleep.

    And the poor writers are forced to turn out this safe, inoffensive, stultifying pablum week after week. And the whole insulting tepid mess gets canceled before Christmas.

    Little wonder why we all pay for HBO and Netflix and iTunes' rentals. The audience is starved for real unfiltered non-dumbed down entertainment. Network TV services only the lowest common denominators in society. And it only works for them after a few beers.

    If you've got The Firm in the can, we're up to chapter 14. We love that one as well.
