Finished the last 4 episodes of season 1. This is a good show and the ending was not what I expected, but this show always did well with it's twists and turns.
Episode 10, the season finale had so many good moments packed in. Luv'ed seeing the Mayor and his wife beat up the "Men in Black" who were trying to intimidate the kids into telling them where and who Harry was.
The Kareoke scene with the Sherif's Deputy and the Sherrif singing together and him offering her badge back was priceless.
Asta telling Harry off and later her convincing him to not complete his mission.
Kickass final scene with Harry in his awesomeness and using his technology to fling around the military types.
At the end of the final episode Alan Tudyk has a short announcement thanking the audience for watching and letting us know there will be a season 2.
