Posted by: S.P. Young  //  December 18, 2012 @ 12:05am

"Last time as Team One."

The series ended with a rather disappointing finale. The thing that hurt it the most, was that this episode relied three times on making it look like a character had died, when in fact, they survived. First, it was Clark. Then it was Sam. Finally, it was Greg.

Posted by: S.P. Young  //  October 14, 2012 @ 12:15am

"If you call the cops, I'm dead."
