The first episodes of Season 5 promised more insight into the characters, especially the A.I.s. Too bad they gave us the same violence with sensationalism instead of ANSWERS. They pandered to what they *think* people want and now... there's just more. Reminds me of when they killed Detective Carter. They didn't get that fans liked her? They think we want a lesbian moment instead of the truth behind Finch, Grace, the A.I.s personalities, and the mysteries that could have been solved ?? Too much violence and sex everywhere else. That was never why people tuned in. I hate following a show for 5 seasons to get mere "sensationalism!" Too expensive, as well !!

A full season is priced too high. I would never pay near $40-$50 dollars for a full season that will barely reach 25 or a little more. $1.00 pre show is even ridicilous. Especially when these shows loose value quickly. I would prefer a better package on Netflix or Hulu or a newer and better alternative than this expensive app.
