I liked Mob Doctor. It only got 1 show! LOL
Was it really that bad?
Did you mean "it only got one season"? All 13 episodes aired, although only the first 8 before the cancellation was announced.
For FNL fans - Against the Grain
Long before I watched Friday Night Lights I had hopes for this show, started off pretty well but only lasted 8 episodes. Not sure episodes can be found anywhere though.
When "Tales of the Gold Monkey" came along, I was expecting it to be based on the "Brass Monkey" magazine ads then current, and I think it would have been a better show if it had been.
I'm sure I was the only one watching but there was a show in 2011 called Against the Wall. I was enjoying it and there is still an unresolved cliff-hanger from the last episode (a very minor one about her opening a door to find the guy she loves outside but we don't know which guy it is!!)
I believe it started off as a midseason replacement and then started off the next season before getting canceled.
Yeah they ruined it when it was retooled the 2nd season
I thought of one last night (and then was unable to sleep because I kept thinking about it and it was freaking me out).
I thought it was really well done and quite creepy. I love anything that's on the Amazon and I love found footage stuff. It's not gross-out horror, it's more suspense and scares. I think there were 13 episodes [looked it up, only 8] and the ending was satisfying - a good ending for this type of show. It works well as a standalone mini-season IMO.
I forgot all about that show.
I don't think it was great TV, but I watched and enjoyed it.
Speaking of, there was a 1 season USA show called Peacemakers that I liked.
That and SciFi's Dresden Files (although I think I might like that best for introducing me to the novels).
So many I agree that should have been given longer.
To these I add.
The Dick Van Dyke Show (not the sitcom, the variety show)
The Flash (but I may be remembering wrong, it might have made a second season)
Eerie Indiana The Other Dimension (started off rough, but hit a good stride just before it was canceled.
Max Headroom ran for two seasons, but only 14 episodes total. I think it originally aired on Showtime, but epguides.com lists it as being on ABC. It may have aired on network TV after a run on the cable channel. The Flash ran for one full season on CBS spanning 22 episodes. It's available on DVD from Netflix and possible for streaming as well. The Flash is going to be reintroduced on The CW's Arrow sometime this season. I thought it was the best of any of the superhero venues on TV at the time because it took itself more seriously than the campy shows like Batman and Captain Nice (remember him?) that aired around the same time.
Was it Captain Nice and Mr. Terrific or Mr. Nice and Captain Terrific?
Captain Nice and Mr. Terrific. I just watched the first episode on line somewhere a few weeks ago.
When I saw Max Headroom it was a Network. May have been picked up from a cable channel. They ran it as one season. I agree on the Flash. I've picked up both on DVD. I still think the Flash was one of the best. Two aspects I liked is that he was sort of a reluctant hero and they didn't slow him down to imply speed.
Oh, and I really remember liking Love Monkey on CBS.
So many shows I liked that ended too soon.
At the risk of losing my man card, I liked Hellcats. In my defense, hot cheerleaders, what's not to like?
Ringer, was one I just thought of.
Attractive women everywhere!
Yeah.. I liked that too. Ashley Tisdale as a brunette was nice.
