But why don't you like it?? SPOILERS.... t h e r e i s n o t h i n g w r o n g w i t h y o u r t e l e v i s i o n (set) To me, Dead Man's Switch started off with such a grim premise that there was no way anything good could possibly come out of ANY turn of events at the ending. When that happens, then the show has failed. Someone mentioned that "Stream of Consciousness" was "predictable, but good". I agree with that 100%. I knew exactly where it was going...but I DIDN'T know whether it would end with victory or defeat for the protagonist, and that made me stay with it. If Cap'n Kirk/Picard/Sisko/Janeway had entered into a similar situation, I would have NEVER finished watching it, because I would have known that it was NOT gonna end in tragedy for our heroes. Can't say the same about OL heroes. Except in an ep like "Dead Man's Switch". I knew that guy was DOOMED in some way from the very beginning.

To me, there are a number of scenario's that would have made for a happy ending, by "starting off with such a grim premise", because you don't know (until the end), if the aliens are friends or enemies.
