'bout sums it up
I'm cancelling HBO and will see the two movies in place of season 4 when they come out on DVD.
Actually, Mark Frankel died after the show was cancelled.
Surprised nobody mentioned Profit yet. Loved that show.
Miss Firefly, and I wished we could JMS' vision of Crusade.
Thread -search much?
Was that the Jon-Erik Hexum show that he was working on when he died?
"The Sentinel" actually lasted 3 1/2 seasons... it was the only other series to last past UPN's first season.
My top ten:
1. Odyssey 5 (SHO)
2. Sports Night
3. The Job
4. Dead Like Me (SHO)
5. Leap Years (SHO)
6. Going to California (SHO)
7. Now & Again
8. Space Above and Beyond
10. Peter Benchleys Amazon
No wonder I hate Showtime which you can also add Total Recall 2070 & Stargate SG-1 if Sci-Fi had not picked it up.
The show was called High Incident and it was on ABC. It was a pretty good show and the second and final season ended in a cliff-hanger. From what I remembered, it got bounced around on timeslots.
Killed before their time: Firefly, Futurama, Family Guy, The Lone Gunmen, Farscape, Angel, Space: Above and Beyond, Crusade.....Family Guy was revived of course, but did not come back quite as good.....Futurama coming back....Babylon 5 was cancelled then renewed, screwing up the filming of the last two seasons, so not cancelled, but still a victim of the networks....
No one as mentioned one of (in my mind) Once and Again. not only did ABC cancel it but they kept swithcing the time it came on so the fans never knew when it was coming on. the fans even had to do the advertising for the show, pay for billboards, ads in mags etc. because of this most fans call it: Alphabetical Cancelling Network
then there's Judging Amy i know it when on for a long time but i still miss it. i just wanted amy and bruce together.
No one has mentioned Young Americans or The Bedford Diaries but mid season WB or CW shows with stars that have become big and famous on other shows. to bad the wb didn't see the pontential when they cancelled them. oh and Fearless also a WB or CW show that didn't go on for long. in this case they never aired any part of it. the famous stars on other shows fits here too.
I also miss: Angel (WB), The Mountain (WB), Roswell (WB/UPN), Jack & Bobby (WB), Popular (WB), The Book of Daniel (NBC), Conviction (NBC), Early Edition (CBS), Eyes (ABC), In Justice (ABC), Joan of Arcadia (CBS). Love Monkey (CBS), Tru Calling (FOX). Wonderfalls (FOX), Dark Angel (FOX), Reunion (FOX), Higher Ground (FAM)
Also Law and Order: Trial by Jury (NBC)
Diagnosis Murder (CBS)
Has anyone mentioned The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.? I've been working my way through the DVDs slowly since Christmas and I love the show. A throwback campy show you can watch with the whole family, fun action, clean humor, good guys who follow their principles and can win every fight without ever killing anyone. Bruce Campbell's greatest role?
Oh, and the world's smartest horse. A mysterious sci-fi plot thread. A truly evil arch nemesis. A son out for revenge. Lord Bowler. Even I can appreciate the beauty and allure of Dixie Cousins. A show truly killed well before its time.
Anyone say Firefly?
I really haven't read the thread yet, but will now.
I'm actually kind of glad "Birds of Prey," "Joan of Arcadia," "Tru Calling," and "Dead Like Me" got cancelled.
Now, the odd thing is: I actually have seen every episode of all 4 of those shows. There was something and/or someone I liked in all of them. But I thought "Birds of Prey" wasn't really well thought out, and I didn't like the direction Joan and Tru were going with a similarly powered adversary. To me, "Dead Like Me" also seemed to be losing its way - toward the end, it felt like they were starting to explore pathological cases in the reaper mythos, where the stories were becoming more about the mythos than the characters.. Still, I couldn't tear myself away, so I'm actually glad someone saved me from myself.
Now, "Fame" and "Eight is Enough"... those I wanted to live forever...
Moon over Miami
ok, I said it
