    Fantastic news about the renewal. An we still got four more episodes of Season 2 to go.

    The heavy effects works means that their is a much longer lead time needed to make new episodes, than something like Burn Notice which have minimal or zero effects. It might also mean that TNT are reluctant to order more episodes, budget but then they did give the crew a bigger budget this year for more CGI work and explosions.

    Television can be very restricting on CGI and other advanced effects. Look at the SG series. Much of the CGI in that was old clips just being recycled.

    I little late but I was so happy when I heard this news, the show is amazing and pulls you in from the start and the mix between great characters and an intense plotline, and so much more in-between.

    I would also love more episodes per season but at the same time I get why they stick to 10 of them and I think it has to do more with budget than the actors contract (because I’m sure they wouldn’t mind doing more either) but shows like this cost a lot of money to do and maybe TPTB decided that it was better to make 10 episodes and be able to go all out then make more and not have the means to do everything they want. There is actually a lot of shows these days that have only have 10 episodes per seasons or even less, GoT also have 10 episodes per season and TWD only had 6 episodes in season 1 though they did go up to 13 episodes in season 2 and both those shows are extremely popular. Gotta admit though that when it comes to great shows you just never want them to end.

    That is great and I do feel as if they are really using it in the best way possible.

    Sp!der, it improved quite a bit. It's still a family-oriented show, and if you don't have kids at home, you might discover yourself rolling your eyes occasionally. It's good not great, IMO, but it might be the best sci-fi available on TV at the moment.

I am a fan of mass destruction, ( on the fictional side) and a flashback of the beginning of it all would be cooltacular.
    Agreed. That imo was something missing from S1.. IMO the Premier would have done well if say the first 10-20 min had the invasion happening then flashed forward to the start of the mass..

    Did they say when they start airing?

    I would assume this summer, like the previous two seasons.

    Don't we all. The wait between seasons is always torture.
