Many shows kick the bucket prematurely and for good reason. Other shows are unlucky to live in a day and age where ratings calculation are bogus and the new paradigm of streaming and DVR hasn't been yet taken into account. For some this show was a rare chance for a high concept geopolitical show to be on the air with mystery, conspiracy and a story of a dictator in the making. It may not have turned out the way we all wanted and sadly was scheduled for cancellation. Showing once again that big networks don't know the meaning of risk, diversification and TV production value.
