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.
Spy Game
The Dick Van Dyke Show (not the sitcom, the variety show)
Salvage One
The Flash (but I may be remembering wrong, it might have made a second season)
Max Headroom
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.

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?

I'm smeeking and I'll bet that it's been mentioned but the best recent show that got canceled/not renewed after one season was Terriers.

This show has probably been mentioned more than any other in this thread. I'm really going to have to check it out. I believe I watched the pilot, but then I fell behind and ended up erasing all of the episodes once I found out it was cancelled.

This is #1 on my list of shows I wish would get released on DVD. I grabbed a couple of episodes and have them on videotape, but I didn't get the first three episodes (or, obviously, the ones that were shot and never aired).

My favorite of the episodes I did see is "What, Micah worry?"

"Dead and Gone, Honey", with Dana Delaney, was also fun.

Creators were the Raimi brothers, and John McNamara, one of the producers of The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.

imdb and epguides.com say that 13 episodes were made, but only 9 were ever aired.

It's another of those slow first few episodes as the characters are developed, but it gets REALLY good fairly quickly. E8 is probably one of the best hours of TV I've ever seen.

(Reading through the episode guide on IMDB makes me sad this show was cancelled )

I found a dealer that was selling Spy Game on DVD, called Timesforgottondvd.com. but I don't think I trust the site. Can't find any good review of the site. (or bad for that matter.)

Agree with both parts of this. And as it turns out, the show ended up having a reasonably decent storyline outside the cheerleader stuff.

This wasn't a show I missed terribly after it got cancelled, and not a series I'd seek out now, but while it was on it was worth watching.

both are nice to look at. In fact, Aly is what drew me into the show. But Ashley was the one I wound up liking the best.

Show detail page on TV Shows on DVD says the rights owner for DVD is "unknown" -- imdb shows that the WorldWide DVD distributor is someone called "Shallow Cove". Clicking on that reveals Spy Game is the only show listed.

If there had been a R1 DVD, you'd think there would be links to buy it on Amazon. So I'm willing to bet that there still hasn't been any US DVD release.

How could I have forgotten The Dresden Files?

Trivia point: a year after the series was shown, the original unaired pilot was shown by (then) SciFi at 2AM. I think it was shown only the one time. One of the first series episodes was made from bits and pieces of it. As I recall, the producers have stated that they wanted the pilot to be included on the DVD set, but SciFi allegedly refused permission.

Yeah, I rather liked both of these, even though Gold Monkey was a pretty flagrant attempt to cash in on Indiana Jones.

Note

Only a few that pop to mind immediately. I think of the ones where I was truly upset that they were cancelled.

1. Firefly (obviously.. best show ever)
2. Now and Again (loved this show)
3. Space: Above and Beyond (dorky title, a little bit of cheesiness here and there, but amazing graphics for it's time, and some excellent dramatic episodes).
4. Brisco County Jr. (fun show and Bruce Campbell was great)..

I had forgotten about The Cape. The forum here gave it really mixed reviews. I admit that I liked it, but more for the side stories than the main character. Personally, I'd avoid watching it. It was canceled before all the ones they filmed were aired and they weren't given a chance to bring anything to a conclusion so it's kind of a bummer to watch knowing that.

The mention of "The Cape" reminded me of another one - "Call to Glory".

In my opinion, it's not. This is a show that I wasn't even the slightest bit upset when it got cancelled.

Max Headroom started as a UK made-for-TV movie, Max Headroom: Twenty Minutes into the Future which aired on Cinemax in the US. It was adapted into The Original Max Talking Headroom Show (also on Cinemax), Max hosting a talk show ala Space Ghost Coast-to-Coast.

ABC commissioned a series based on the TV movie, but only 14 episodes were produced.

And I almost forgot about his hit record.

Frank's Place from the mid-80s. CBS really dropped the ball on that one.
