| Return or Cancellation?
I really liked this show. I only recently watched the last couple of shows that I had missed online. I'll admit that the main reason I tuned in in the first place was out of curiosity because I liked James Purefoy in "Rome." While it would be nice to see the show return (even if it's only a summertime thing), it probably won't, because I know the networks. Every time they come up with a new & interesting concept for a TV show, they promptly cancel it in favor of the same, tired old recycled garbage they they've been spitting out for decades.

I've tried searching for info on it, but I can't locate any info about it on the web. So I'll just assume that the network killed it and move on...
