Canceled Shows, I am so sick and tired of this happening!!!!!

Arrrgggghhhhh..........., Primeval, a great BBC scifi series has been canceled, everytime I start liking a new series, it gets the axe.
This happened with the Scifi series Invasion, as well as Freaky Links.

The best canceled show was the 90's revival of Dark Shadows.  great show, I loved it---13 lousy episodes and ended with a cliffhanger. Oh well, at least I know what happened because they were all recycled from the 1960's show,lol! ;D ;)

Dr. Phibes, that was the one that went up against the televised coverage of the Gulf War, right? (I seem to remember wanting to watch that, but then the war started, and I did not have command of the remote.)

Mine was Firefly.   It was witty, intelligent, and I absolutely loved it... which apparently was the triple kiss of death.

I hate it when they end with a cliffhanger and then sell the DVD sets for the "complete" series.  It amuses me that this topic comes up, as I just recently watched the DVD sets of Firefly and The 4400.  At least with Firefly, they did the movie SERENITY as a follow up.  The 4400 more or less wrapped up the major story thread, although it certainly could have have answered a lot more questions.  I hear that they will wrap it up with 2 books, the first of which is out now ("Welcome to Promise City").  Another series that I was watching that ended with a season 1 cliffhanger was Surface.  This was on the same year as Invasion.  Both series ware available on DVD, but complete?   Not quite.

American Gothic.Great show that was on then off then different days then off then a year later they finished it with little announcement. I have the boxset and it has digital flaws which I've heard is common with this set.
 Kindred,another great series. The lead actor died in a Euro car wreck. What about Jericho which went on hiatus for 2 freakin years. I agree that too many good intelligent shows go bye bye whilst the crap keeps rollin along for way too long Who cares about the surreal life of rich brats? Obviously too many clueless twits. Wasn't Friends on for like 8 0r 10 years? WHY? Look at the shows that are popular. It tells you about the intelligence , actually lack there of, of the viewers. That is exactly why I watch maybe 5 or 6 channels and have a crap load of DVDs including around 1000 old TV shows.

Yup, that's the one, Liz. It was also preempted many times for breaking gulf war news.  The dvd set is really good, except for the cliffhanger ending, and the lack of special features.

AMERICAN GOTHIC was excellent.  As usual, Lester, I commend your good taste!
