    I figured with all fun talk about shows being canceled what are your top 5 shows that you wish never went away?

    1) Jericho
    2) Firefly
    3) Friday Night Lights (i hated how they treated this show...short seasons and still one of the best casts ever)
    4) Dollhouse
    5) Sarah Conner Chronicles


    Honorable mention: The Unit (but it did have a pretty good run)

    What are other people's? Im guessing Firefly is #1 or 2 in most people's list.

    The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Pushing Daisies and Journeyman for me ...

    Cancellation for Journeyman, of all other shows, still baffles me to this day.

    Seems strange to see Friday Night Lights listed when I am only 4 or 5 episodes into the current season on NBC.

    'Carnivale' should have gotten a third season. Especially after seeing that last scene.

    Deadwood got a third season at least.

    'Profit' - 1996

    Was ahead of it's time. It left an impression on me.

    Yep and yep. Both those shows had lots of story left in them.

    3rd Journeyman.

    Shows that were great but had good runs like 6 Feet Under don't qualify for me. Even the best ones have a lifespan.

    Boomtowm before they revamped it to a more linear story format

    I keep wanting to say Firefly, but that would have meant no Castle, and I'm not sure i can give that up.

    I'm sure I'll think of more later.
