It was as if the entire writing staff just collectively said, "Fuck it, we're tired of writing. Bob, go wipe your ass on a sheet of paper. That's good enough."

Or they said "what do we care about entertaining the audience? We're out of work in two weeks"

Invader Zim too is a perpetually great show for me. I still wait for the day they sell DVDs of that thing, and maybe a Futurama style resurrection.

I'm shocked nobody has mentioned Odyssey 5, it was a terrible decision to cancel it! Argh...
Surface and Threshold was previously mentioned, and I miss them as well!

I loved all three of those, in addition to Journeyman!

Guess I just got lucky on that one.

I didn't really care about Flash Forward being cancelled until the last episode where they were like ha we've been cancelled so let's fuck with their brains.

I like SGU since it's mature, has a sense of mystery, and not one but there are lots of episodes where I got goosebumps. I also like it that they feature different sf norms almost each episode.

I haven't watched the second season yet, and that one has more episodes, I believe. I hope they live up to the first one.


The second season was brilliant, just wish it didn't have to end the way it did.

They said it was too costly, and not pulling in enough as SyFy would like. I'm still waiting for the Arrested Development new 7 episodes + movie. Looks like Community will get cancelled too, what with Chevy Chase calling the show creator and saying stuff like "This is not funny anymore". Hope it lives on though.
