    I realize it's over now, but was just wondering if there are any other fans of the show here. I thought it was a damn good show. David Duchovny displayed debauchery at it's finest.

    I wish they would have killed it after season 4 ended. That would have been a pretty perfect series if they had. I still watched it and enjoyed parts of it after that, but it definitely got the Showtime treatment like pretty much every series they do there. First couple seasons are amazing, until the suits come in, extract a formula out of what they think worked best in those first couple seasons, and then beat that formula to death until people lose interest. It's like every series starts off as something you might see on HBO and finishes off as something you might watch on CBS.

    As much as the wife and I loved the show, we both felt the same way (though, were willing to overlook it). The last few seasons, while having some compelling love interests (ahh, Faith...), lost the charm and replaced it with shock value and mediocrity.

    This show approached 'Arliss' levels of bad.
    Very good the first few season, but REALLY overstayed its sell by date.

    I watched it on/off and ended up watching the entire thing in order on Netflix last year. I got to the last season and lost interest. But, up until that point I thought it was pretty entertaining.

    I loved it and then grew tired of it.
