Shows that ended to soon


John is contemplating what could have been for these series

Firefly
A obvious choice, this would be in most peoples list of shows that was canceled way to early, which does beg the question “why was in canceled?”. I’m not sure, but i do know it was entertaining  show with an excellent plot and characters, unlike some show in the list though it did get a chance to finish the story in movie form.

Stargate Universe
I’v talked about this loads in the past and you know i pissed it’s ending.
So i’l let gateworld talk for me

Gateworld gives a well thought out peace on mistakes they felt were made by Syfy that directly effected the Stargate universe cancellation  http://www.gateworld.net/news/2011/05/how-wrestling-is-killing-science-fiction/
Syfy responded with this http://www.gateworld.net/news/2011/05/an-open-letter-to-stargate-fans-from-syfy/

All is well and good until one of the stargate universe producers pointed out some flaws in Syfy’s argument  http://www.gateworld.net/news/2011/05/stargate-producer-responds-to-syfys-arguments-for-sgu-cancellation/

I’m non the wiser, all i know is a good show was canceled.

Lie to me
At least this show did get three season, but the show was built on Tim Roth, i still think it has more to offer than just the paltry 48 episodes it was given. I don’t feel their will be any be gaping plot lines left dangled when this one finishes.

The Chicago Code
Going to be honest and say i have only seen one episode of this show (it’s only just aired in the UK) but it was amazing so after watching i thought i’d research the show a little more. Only to learn that Fox had canceled it after 13 episodes, this is when also learned of Lie to me cancellation.

FlashFoward
Boy was i pissed when this finished, massive cliffhanger and we were non the wiser on the whole situation.

John From Cincinnati

Still not met anyone who watched this show, but it was about…… well i think it was about the second coming of Jesus. Through the episode that aired it was basically hinted that he could be anything, John was a little bit mentally disturbed. It was a very intriguing show, i just wised that the series creator would come out and say who he was.

Still has the best opeing of any show, that’s including true blood.

The Class
The Class did not too well but three of the main actors did fine out of it, one is in walking dead, another in modern family, and one is in the event; the rest probably not so good. It was a funny show that used to air just before i went to class (talk about irony(is that irony? i’m never to sure).

My thoughts on the networks

The networks seem to think that their doing us a favor giving us programing, there not, when there is so much choice now a days; we are doing them a favor. When you have a show that still has at least million of viewer; just in one country, i feel that they have a duty to allow the show to have a proper ending. They should Give the show enough notification to finish the story or give it a mini series to end it. Otherwise all the hours people spent watching your show, are all for naught. Networks are on a path of ending shows way before they should, with only a select few show getting a good run, and they normally get milked to death. People already watch on the internet, and more people will start doing that if they if they are not allowed to get invested in a show.

    The thing is; you list American Tv shows here and in America if ratings aren’t “through the roof” then it’s ripe for the axe. It’s a shame because they don’t pay any attention to critical acclaim or fanbase. Whereas in the UK, we have shows like Peep Show whose ratings are poor to say the least, but due to the fanbase and critical acclaim it continues to return.
    It puts me off American TV, when a show’s good and gets axed before its time and tripe can continue to get renewed just because morons will watch it.

      Yes very true…… But I find that the Brits only do comedy well, easy to do on a low budget, while these huge yanky drama cost so much more. I think if peep show was costing millions per ep, I would doubt that the seasons would keep coming.
