If I like a dramatic series, you can count on it being cancelled!

"Deadwood," "Boss," "The Borgias," and now "Magic City" make up my list of favorite dramatic shows of mine that were all ended prematurely. At least the producers of "Breaking Bad," and "Six Feet Under" knew ahead of time how long their shows would run so that the audience was left with a satisfying ending. On the other hand, as evidenced by the unpopular final episodes of "The Sopranos" and "Dexter," knowing that a particular season will be the last one may not always be a good thing. Let's just hope that we get a decent conclusion for "Sons of Anarchy" next season and whenever the powers that be decided that "Mad Men" has run its course.

Gets better each episode
Verified purchase
This season had some unexpected twists and turns, so I hate that the show got cancelled. We'll now have to use our imaginations to explore how the storyline might have played out. SPOILER ALERT: I was intrigued by Danny and Judi Silver's budding relationship, and I wanted to see how Ike was going to handle his frisky sister-in-law (or former sister-in-law depending on how you look at it). What I didn't want to see was Ike's wife, Vera, fall into bed with Stevie. I just think the whole sleeping with your step-son thing is low and gross. Other than that, I thought the story was getting more interesting overall, and I was becoming more invested in the characters. It's a shame that it got the ax, but that's life.

Another great series...but
Verified purchase
This series has a beauty and style to it that really brings it alive, and with a stellar cast you truly have 'magic' here. I've heard that Starz has cancelled the series so I can't fully recommend this since it seems to be building towards something bigger in an imagined season 3. One can only hope that there will be some sort of closure in the future - whether that means a movie to complete it, or by some luck only the dreamland of 60's Miami cool could create - that it would get picked up by Netflix or Amazon for more seasons.

More of the same.
Verified purchase
More of the same. It was while I was watching this season that I became aware of how many times the protagonist tells stories to help those around him understand whatever issue is stressing them. The thing is two or three such events happen every episode gets old. Also, this guy is no Ray Donovan.

Amazing Final Season
Verified purchase
The second season ends up being the final season. Luckily the writers pulled of a great final episode to end the show on. It's a pity that Starz never really marketed this show outside of a few commercials on their own channel ensuring that no one knew about it until it popped up on Amazon.

One of the best series in a long time
Verified purchase
One of the best series in a long time! It is Sopranos meets Madmen! Worst decision ever to cancel it. Only cancelled due to high cost of production. Wishes someone else picked it up as reports first speculated. Still, its definitely worth watching both seasons, they wrapped a lot up neatly...but still so much more was left to do! Jeffrey Dean Morgan should have received Best Actor in a Drama!! Amazing job!
