Light's Out series finale

It seems that I am a cursed man. Every time I hear about a show and watch it from the first episode on, it is doomed to fail; however, if I start watching a show in the middle of say it's first or second season, it explodes.

Light's Out was my favorite new show that has come on in about a year (the last one being The Walking Dead), and since I was drawn to it so heavily and watched it from day 1 it was only a matter of time before it was canceled, and it was.

Last night was the finale and it became apparent how much I loved the show when I was incredibly nervous during the boxing match. I was afraid for this character whom I had grown to love and wanted to see succeed. That is how you know you're watching a good tv show, when you're afraid and nervous in real life for someone that is totally fictional.

I was very satisfied with the finale, of course they didn't know it would be the SERIES finale when they made it, but even if it wasn't I would have loved it. The ending left me completely heart broken, I definitely almost cried (not because the show was over, because of what actually happened in the ending).

Of course like any good finale, it gave us just as many questions as it answered. There were still a few questions left unanswered from earlier episodes that I wished had been touched on. All in all it was a very well put together finale and I'm sad to see the show go, it was wonderful.

Addendum:
There are rumors that the USA Network has picked up the show out of cancellation, and will air the second season next year. I hope these are true.
