What do you think?????

Whatever it takes, I know I can make it through.

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

If Carnivale is on there I'd add Rome, Deadwood, and Luck. All were renewed, but not enough times and in Lyck's case it didn't stick.

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

Also Terriers!

Glad to see someone else liked Lights Out.

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

Firefly
Harsh Realm
Odyssesy 5
Jake 2.0

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

With the OP on Studio 60. Was shaping up to be a classic, and was better by leaps and bounds than Tina Fey's crappy ripoff of it.

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

I'd also have to add Space: Above and Beyond. Probably one of the best space related series that never made it past season 1. Well before it's time. Shame, being that if it was on a network like Syfy, it may have lasted longer.

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

German 70's Sitcom "Ein Herz und eine Seele".

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

flash forward with joesph fiennes is another 1 canceled way too soon.

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

Angel
Moonlight
Ringer
The Finder
Forever Knight
V (1983)

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

"Ellery Queen" (1975) - I wish that it had run for another season or two!

I heard that, back then, shows were cancelled if they weren't in the top ten. I guess the only solution to this problem is to have only ten shows.

Jim Hutton: talented gorgeous hot hunk; adorable as ElleryQueen; SEXIEST ACTOR EVER

"Exterminate all rational thought."

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

Twin peaks had ran its course I think. The only way to make it better would be to draw out fire walk with me into an easier to understand third prequel series. Have you seen how much footage is going to be on the new blu ray? They could have easily made a seven episode miniseries from it.
Agree with the others. Especially freaks and geeks. I nearly cried when that got cancelled.

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

My Living Doll-from the 1960's. I liked the concept

Volker Flenske: (While torturing David) I don't know why you're doing this to yourself!

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

I don't want to repeat what anybody else said(but there's a bunch I agree with) , so here's my 2¢:
Stark Raving Mad
Life on Mars(US)
Vegas

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

Missed out the best two. Freaks and geeks and firefly. Both lasted only one season and both have imdb ratings 9+

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

Garth marenghis was genius. I guess the cast and crew all died but I'd love to see a one off special.

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

I totally agree with some on your long list: Night Stalker, Jack & Bobby, Lights Out, and October Road.

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

Not a popular post I'm sure, but I LOVED (and still do thanks to Netflix) Rules of Engagement. It's just simply funny. Sure it wasn't a world beater by any means; but easy, consistent fun. And really what more can you ask for?

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon

The adventures of Brisco county jr

Re: Great shows that were canceled way too soon


Detroit 1-8-7


I probably wouldn't include this on the list. But, it did have potential. The actors were top-shelf and the vibe was cool but the writing was unexceptional. But, of course, with time the show might have improved.



I would put "Chase" and "K-Ville" on the list for cop shows that I enjoyed but were canceled anyway.
