    Part of me is relieved that it died before it got a chance to suck. This way, it will always be perfect.:)

    ABC.


    Since there's so much My So Called Life love here, I'm surpirsed there's no mention of Once and Again, which I felt was pretty much like a grown up version of MSCL. I thought it was amazing, and although it lasted 3 seasons, it was given the boot with even less ceremony that MSCL. So much was left unresolved, and to add to the insult, TPTB are holding season 3 hostage so that it's never been available on DVD and might never be.

    Veronica Mars!!!

    Thank god for fans, because with fan funding (more than double their goal!) a movie has been greenlit to film this summer and release next year. Fans will finally get to see what happens. Plus: LOGAN!!!

    Life (with Damian Lewis)

    And the one where Christian Slater plays some uber-spy that has a regular guy alter ego, and the two ended up mixing. I forget the name of it, but it only lasted one season and I really thought it was an interesting concept.

    Yes. However, I'm also okay with it not continuing, because it seemed to be setting it up for Angela to dump Jared Leto Jordan Catalano for un-hot guy Brian. And that would just NOT work for me. :drama:

    I loved Homefront, great show! That is the first time I remember seeing John Slattery - now I get him on Mad Men. Always thought he was so handsome. And the show gave us Kyle Chandler!

    I also agree with those who mentioned Dark Angel, The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Nowhere Man, and Now And Again. Loved all of those shows, and have most of them on DVD.

    Cancelled after an episode or two or three: My Generation, Parenthood (the one back in the 90s)

    One season and that's it? Relativity, My So-Called Life, Reunion, The Class, Retro Ice, The LA Complex, GCB, Rags to Riches

    Got a pretty run but still could've done so much more: thirtysomething, Once & Again, American Dreams, Up With Chris Hayes, Battle of the Blades, Popular

    It was on forever but still cancelled too early: Another World

    Pasadena: It was a great and kind of dark nightime soap that starred Dana Delaney and Belthazar Ghetty. Timing was not on the show's side, though - the show debuted a month after 9/11 and one of the main plots involved a deranged man committing suiced in the first episode.

    Speaking of Belthazar Ghetty. I was bummed that Brothers & Sisters was cancelled.

    My first thought was Homefront- I loved that show.

    And then I remembered Dollhouse- and if I could bring back any show, that would be it.

    Yes please!

    YES! Frigging yes! absolutely!

    Half of me agrees, but the other half thought the last half of season two was too campy :yikes:

    Firefly (duh)

    Invasion
    Life on Mars (recent)
    The Nine
    Spies
    Basically any Wed 10pm drama that ABC aired during the LOST years :drama: I got hooked on them all, and they all got cancelled way too quickly. Most crushed about Invasion, though

    The Event
    Dollhouse
    Caprica

    and of course Freaks and Geeks

    As much as I love Arrested Development, I don't think any series that got 3 seasons can be called "cancelled too soon". Fox actually put a huge effort into finding it an audience - that one is more the fault of viewers for not watching.

    That could be said of a lot of shows. We could actually have a pretty long thread about shows that dragged on WAY too long and should have been put out of their misery.



    Ohhhhh, yes! Loved that one! Although a tiny part of me is relieved that we never actually got Betty's romantic storyline resolved, because I was rooting SO HARD for Victor (fancy-word-loving* undercover anti-Nazi agents for the win!!), but it seemed like everyone else was rooting for Scott. Something in me would have died if it had been Scott.

    (Yes, I do take my shows way too seriously, why do you ask? :eek: )

    Another one I thought of: a little-known but really good show called Mysterious Ways, with Adrian Pasdar. I think it only went one season.

    *Seriously, when she asked him to repeat what he said on their romantic walk by the river, and he said that thing about the confluence of the Allegheny and the Monongahela, I wanted to hug him myself. :D

    Firefly!

    Day Break; a police detective (Taye Diggs) is framed for murdering the Assistant DA, and lives the same day over and over again while trying to solve the murder. Each day he brings forward the memories/knowledge of the previous day. My husband and I enjoyed the six episodes we saw before it was cancelled. :(

    We also liked "Dont Trust the B-"
