Re: Shows that shouldn't have been cancelled
One of my favourite characters. Probably a testament to the writing that such a prick could become genuinly sympathetic when his mind began to deteriorate and he became a shell of his former self. I thought Bobby added a great amount of sympathy and loved how he in particular slowly morphed into a bigger player over the course of the series. Still love the fight between him and Tony in the period where Tony was becoming such a prick to everyone around him. Perhaps one of the few genuinly sympathetic guys on the show, despite some of the things he got caught up and involved in.
Basically what the title says, what shows were cancelled that you thought show have been given a better chance....for example:
Terra Nova: Big show last year that had a very interesting story with decent acting. it had a great season finale cliff hanger that would have really made for an interesting season 2 but unfortunately it will not happen...
Firefly: This show an amazing following that still to this day wants the show back on...it was a great sci-fi show with very good cast...It only lasted a season but thanks to a support from their fans they were able to do the movie Serenity to close up the show....
Freaks and Geeks: The fact that this show wasnt even given a full season is a crime itself...It was a late 90s show about high school kids in the 80s and it resembles the 80s amazingly. it had a great cast of James Franco, Jason Segel, Seth Rogen, and Linda Cardellini (who is absolutely Gorgeous) and perfect writing...They shot 18 episodes but NBC only aired 12 and cancelled the show to have another night of Dateline...If NBC were to have given it a better chance it could have been a bigger success than Dawson's Creek IMO...
My vote is for Babylon 5. Sure, it had its "Five Year Arc" run.. but there was so much more that could have been done, and I don't mean 'Crusade,'( which didn't even have a chance,) or the TV movies.. And Lyta and Ivanova *rocked*
666 Park Avenue (it wasn't given enough time to stretch its legs)
Firefly. Sigh. Gonna go drink now.
Terra Nova (motherfucking DINOSAURS)
That's pretty much my list, too, with one addition.
Firefly is one of my favorite shows. Terra Nova got good, but had some flaws. I thought Dollhouse (another Whedon show) got much better in Season 2. I'm still baffled on 666 Park Avenue. Plenty of interesting things going on.
