    I'd just realized that hadn't been mentioned. How could I forget that one.

    (Unfortunately it's never come out on DVD/Blu-ray, making it somewhat harder to view now :()

    It's a shame Andrea Anders can't find a sitcom that lasts.

    Yeah, she's been pretty unlucky. 'Better off Ted' was a great show that was probably too smart for its own good.

    Did Dresden Files have more than one season? I'd say Pushing Daises but I think that had two...

    Echo many of the others:

    Terriers
    Life
    Journeyman
    Invasion
    Luck
    Thief

    This thread is bringing back a lot of memories about shows I wish were still around. I had forgotten about so many of them. Thanks to all that jogged my memory. :up:

    The Class! One of the funniest scenes ever, when the weather girl is hit with the stop sign and her two classmatest are rewinding the video over and over...

    That's an awesome choice. I loved that show. Maybe slightly ahead of it's time.

    I assume you're talking about the John Corbett show. I thought I was the only one that watched that one ... LOL! I really liked Craig Robinson and Billy Gardell on that show. I'm glad they've both found major success since.

    Yeah, if it were a year or two later, I suspect it would've done better, with the rise in ratings for poker shows after the Moneymaker year (which was 2003).

    Yeah, a bit of unfortunate timing there. First episode was 2 weeks before the start of the 2003 WSOP and last episode was a bit over month after the end of the Main Event.

    As has already been mentioned.

    Journeyman
    Freaks and Geeks (one of the greatest shows of all time)
    Firefly (ditto)
    Wonderfalls (to a much lesser extent)

    Probably not surprising that these shows were cancelled as I didn't discover them until much later (sometimes years).
