    I just finished the 5th episode of Mind Games, and damn, that just got cancelled. :( It makes me mad how many shows I like have been cancelled before they really had a chance. I also loved the first season of Chaos, which was 10 episodes, and that was it. I liked Caprica too, and it's a shame about that Blood and Chrome spinoff that really could have gone somewhere. Seeing how fast these shows were cancelled, it surprises me that Stargate Universe lasted two seasons. I sorta liked the first one, and really liked the second, but then THAT was gone too, after it started getting good.

    And going back in time a bit, The Lone Gunmen was a great show that just got cancelled out of nowhere. Would recommend.

    What shows do you guys wish hadn't been cancelled?

    Firefly should probably be the OP.

    But non-redundant contribution:

    Carnivale.

    I haven't gotten around to Firefly yet. And part of me doesn't want to because everyone says it IS so good, and there's so little of it. It would feel like a let-down probably.

    The upside to firefly being cancelled is serenity, it gives some decent closure :)

    Just watch it. It's amazing, and it's been off the air now for more than 10 years.

    Agreed about Firefly. Such a damned good show. Serenity is also amazing.

    I was a fan of Flashforward when it came out in 2009. I followed it weekly. I was sad when I found out they wouldn't renew it for a 2nd season, since the first one ended on such a ridiculous cliffhanger (the last episode was filmed before anybody even knew it wasn't going to have a 2nd season). I'd love it if they came back to it some day. There's always the book, I guess, but I haven't been as inclined to read it.

    I have to disagree. I love that show, but I'm glad they quit while they were ahead. I'll take that over it turning into an abomination like the Simpsons.

    British humor shows are the best, I don't know whether they were cancelled or just finished, but I want more of THE I.T. CROWD and crazy BLACK BOOKS. The best comedy shows, and sadly short imo.

    Twin Peaks, while an awesome show, was supposed to be one season and quite more straightforward than what it ended up being. They left a lot of things open that they tried to address a bit with the movies.

    Firefly I enjoyed a lot but since it was a type of space western show it was a bit tiring some times. It could have went for a few more seasons however.

    Terminator the Shara Connor Chronicles just ended too abruptly.
