Your Top 5: TV Shows That Were Cancelled Too Early - Page 9

post #121 of 135
Nero Wolfe (A&E, two seasons) Foyle's War (BBC, six series) I can think of many others that jumped the shark far too quickly and then were (unsurprisingly cancelled). ~ H

Carnivale. My favorite show ever.

Crime Story. Awesome late '50s copper flick that launched both Dennis Farina and David Caruso.

Chappelle's Show. Funniest show ever, although Dave cancelled it himself.

Foyle's War is 7 series long. It got canceled after 6, but came back this year.

This..... I can't believe the injustice done to Firefly. At least Serenity was good. (Not great, just good)

Firefly
Sarah Connor Chronicles
Dead Like Me
Arrested Development
Carnivale


LOL at Quark. It really was ahead of it's time.

I'd also add the Prisoner to that list of quirky shows that should've stuck around a little longer. That remake of it that came out a couple years ago sucked, despite McKellen and Caviezel's best efforts to keep it on life support through their performances. Show needed a better writers like Steven Moffat or Russel T. Davies.

The Critic and Dream ON (on HBO), I remember sneaking and watching that show when I was in elementary school. I still watch it on HULU hilarious stuff.

He said he only *could* have done one more season and it would have been on Hispanic immigrants but just didn't have the knowledge/insight with them that he had with everything else. Also, imagine how much of the suture and verisimilitude would have disappeared with the wire had there been subtitles or English speakers for Hispanics.
