I really enjoyed this show. It started off a bit slow - I was lukewarm about the first couple of episodes, but by the 4th episode it really hit its stride. A lot more character development than is typically seen in the spy vs. spy genre, and it grapples with the always interesting concept of the inherent duality in everyone. But, there's also a lot of action (with excellent production values) and tech so it can be enjoyed on that level as well.
As you know, the series was cancelled, so it ends with a non-resolved cliffhanger. Still, it's well worth getting especially if you're a Christian Slater fan. His performance as "both" the stars of the show is excellent, and the supporting cast is also quite good (for the most part - a couple of the performances are just adequate).
It's a shame that this was cancelled - I would absolutely love to see another season! But, even though the storyline does not have a resoultion, it can still be enjoyed.

Henry (Christian Slater) is a middle-class efficiency expert living a humdrum life in the suburbs with his wife, kids, dog, and a minivan. Edward (Slater) is an operative who speaks 13 languages, runs a four-minute mile, and is trained to kill. The one thing Henry and Edward have in common is they share the same body. But when the carefully constructed wall between them breaks down, these polar opposites are thrust into unfamiliar territory where each man is dangerously out of his element. Also starring Alfre Woodard (Desperate Housewives), Mike O’Malley (Yes Dear), Mädchen Amick (Gossip Girl) and Taylor Lautner (Twilight), plus powerful guest stars such as James Cromwell (LA Confidential).
