I am in love with the show. When I first started to watch it and when Vincent and Cat first met I already could tell that there was a love story and I wanted them to get together early on in the first season because they go so well together. The show is amazing and I highly recommend it for anybody to wants to watch it.

Sherri and Jennifer need to renew it, even if cw doesnt want to air it, partner and push through netflix.. we need at least a total of 10 season, cant leave us all wondering what's next from last episode, vincent jay ryan was at his most in this series, and cat, they have a undeniable REEL chemistry! Let vincent and cat become global bad guy getters, without vincent always being under fire from feds!! Need to have all the cast,
