Tv shows that get cancelled just as they become really good

Posted 18 April 2012 - 10:27 AM

I have noticed a trend with the tv industry where TV shows get cancelled just as they start to attract a wide audience.

Here are some of the ones I am talking about.

Eureka
Stargate Atlantis
Stargate Universe
FireFly
Babalon 5

I can keep on going on.

Do you have a perticular show you loved and was just cancelled out of the blue?

Manimal.


Side note - B5 was always intended to be about a five season show. Now with the spin offs drying up that's a different story. Unlike something akin to Sliders where it just went.. and went.. and went.. and went.

Herman's Head.

Man, I loved that show. Fuck you, Fox, for taking it off the air!

b9, is that charlie from fright night?


Also, here are some that got canceled and I wish they would bring back.

Space: Above and Beyond (1995)

Quantum Leap - I think this show could of ended better.

I wish someone would put a new star trek series together. (we can always hope).

I know its a cartoon, but "Undergrads" on MTV was a 1 season-er that had a huge fan base (me included)

the ending to quantum leap was horrible at best. I mean it just ended with him continuing his journey and it said he had a choice all along. That was a lame ending.

Wonderfalls - Very clever, guess most people didn't get the joke.
Surface - Got into this in spite of myself
Threshold - Ok, not grand, but good. Also has Peter Dinklage in it; the guy who totally steals the show in Game of Thrones.

Camelot, it was pretty good but it was canceled becuase the actors in it had actual movies to make :/

but firefly is the real issue here... did anyone see the movie that ended it all? lame sauce ending.

Scrubs. Just kidding Season 9 was TERRIBLE.


Eh, that's what you get for removing a writer, director and star of the show.
