Woah, Rubicon was cancelled???

That sucks, it was an amazing show.....


My top five would be:

Freaks and Geeks
Firefly
Battlestar Galactica
Undergrads

That show was genius, and I still rewatch it once in awhile.

it was kinda cool, but I don't think there was much more that they could have done with it without some obvious shark jumping techniques that would have seen the show end up in the 'shows that went on too long' thread.

completely disagree. Loved that show, some of the best television ever made, and part of the reason for its brilliance was the well timed story arc and its natural conclusion.

+1 on Rome and Boston Legal both. Star Trek: just when I started to get into the last one--Enterprise--it was over. I failed to appreciate Voyager at the time it aired. (A shame, since I've enjoyed watching re-runs of it since, though laugh a bit today sometimes when I see re-runs of TOS which as a kid I truly loved). I agree with Manton that DS9 had pretty much run its course (it was a good series), but was sad to see TNG go. (I know, certain actor(s) left and/or wanted more money which wasn't possible given the demographics--i.e., a loyal following but no room for audience growth, thus resulting in cancellation of the show, as I recall.) To the list I'll add the X-Files, although it probably should have ended long before it did (after David Ducovny left (Mulder), it was all downhill; the movie finale in which he returned was, however, good). Another is the original Law & Order (the "mothership"), although that show had likewise run its course--and what an amazing run it was. (I loved the show in the beginning, being based on real cases, though I don't care much for the spin-offs). EDIT: just thought I'd add one that I don't miss: Ally McBeal.

About flight, you might be right. I just enjoyed it so much I wanted more than 22 episodes.

About the wire, completely agree.

It wasn't really cancelled, but I wish there were more seasons of Father Ted.

I also wish more episodes of Pink Lady and Jeff existed, just because they are so awesomely bad.

3 but it lost a lot of steam by the third season. Lotta the shows just seemed...eh, silly. It was appropriately short I think.
