    This is a follow up on a post I did a bit ago.

    I know there's already a thread about the first cancelled show. And, we already know the FIRST cancelled show: The Playboy Club (NBC). And we know the second: Free Agents (also NBC).

    Let's take this a bit further. Who is willing to place bets on the next cancelled shows in order? Whoever names the most, in the correct order, wins! (like nothing, really, just braggin' rights).

    Anyone who can name the next five cancelled shows, in order of cancellation, wins!

    1. The Playboy Club
    2. Free Agents
    3. Charlies' Angels???
    4. ????

    Gotta add How to be a Gentleman to any top 5 list.

    I saw the pilot last week.

    Very very bad.

    Free Agents? Really? That's too bad; I liked it. :(

    While watching Doctor Who on BBC-A, they had promos for the original British version, also called Free Agents, also with Anthony Stewart Head in the cast. I guess I'll have to start watching that. :)

    The cool thing was that Hank and Kathryn were fairly similar in looks and bearing to their counterparts on the British version.

    You missed CW's H8R, which was the third canceled new series of the season.

    I was going to say that CBS usually gives a little more leeway than other networks when it comes to sitcoms.

    But nevermind. :D

    Pan Am.

    I'm watching "Person of Interest" which has the same old week-after-week series plot formula that keeps those kinds of shows running forever, although the premise that they only get SSNs is really dumb. I'm really getting sick of the billionaire guy and his gimpy leg and stiff back. I suppose they'll tell us at some point what happened to him. He was fine in the past.

    I'm guessing he tried to do his own intervetion in the past and paid dearly for it. That's why he had to go get a badass to do his bidding.
