Don't you hate when you start watching a new show, you get really into it and then the network yanks it?

MISSION HILL (1999) - I can see where this show wouldn't have the most widespread appeal, but I still think it was one of the best-written animated shows around.


VENGEANCE UNLIMITED (1998-99) The mysterious Mr. Chapel (Michael Madsen) is a vigilante for hire who terrorizes criminals through trickery, financial ruin and - occasionally - physical beatdowns. Pure escapist fun


THE DRESDEN FILES (2007) - while it wasn't as good as the books, the potential was there, if SyFy had just given it a little time to find its footing

I kinda liked "Dark Skies":
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0115151/?ref_=sr_2
It was like X-files, but it's mythology was much more condensed, so it was only about an alien invasion. It was set in the 60s, and i really liked it.

Good Vibes:

I caught a few episodes of it on MTV2, and I was blown away. "Holy shit, an animated TV series that actually feels fresh and new and is funny!"

A few months later......cancelled.

I still haven't forgiven Fox for cancelling Brimstone back in 1999.  It ran for thirteen episodes, and I LOVED the show.  I still hold it as one of my favorite TV shows.  It had a ton of potential which was already well realized in those episodes, and the chemistry between Peter Horton and John Glover was stellar!  The whole premise is right down in the opening credits sequence below.  Worse yet, there is STILL no DVD release, and on TVShowsOnDVD.com, it is the 19th ranked unreleased TV show as voted on by 2,156 of the site's users.  Pretty much all of the shows I would say were canceled too soon were given the axe by Fox, and that is why I absolutely will NOT watch shows on Fox anymore, ever.



Fox did give Human Target a second season, but they butchered the show.  They shit canned the excellent season one cliffhanger for a series revamp with new cast members and a new creative direction which sucked ass.  I didn't even bother to watch the final episode because they fucked it up so bad.  I even went on their Facebook page to lodge my complaints about how they ruined the show, and many people were "liking" my post.  Then, they deleted it from the page.  Sometimes, it feels good to say, "I told you so."



And I discovered Booker a couple of years ago when I started getting into 21 Jump Street, and I watched like one episode before running out and buying the DVD set.  Really fun show, and at least got a full season run before it was canceled by Fox.



The other BIG one would be Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles because that ended on one of the BIGGEST cliffhangers ever, and we will NEVER see how it is resolved because Fox canceled the damn show.  And it was a HELL of a great show!

Also known as the source for the theme music for Kung Tai Ted.



I know the pilot episode can be found on couple of ninja or Kung Fu box sets. I saw it on one called Fists of Vengeance last year with Lee Van Cleef on the cover.

i agree Sean Duckman is one i never got over either man. i believe it ended on a cliff-hanger. and the creator said he's done with the show. if his kids want to do it they can but i think his kids at the time he said that were still pretty young as far as i know.

Brimestone is also another one i got pissed at, hell i even signed a Petition to bring that fucker back. and well it didn't work but i signed one.

I signed a petition and sent in an email or letter to Warner Bros and Fox to get Brimstone brought back. I don't know how these campaigns ever work because NONE of them that I've been involved with have ever been successful including the one to The WB to get Angel renewed for a sixth season.

Well, the Family Guy petition, coupled with it's epic DVD sales, helped get *that* show back on the air...

Off-topic: I find it kinda funny, Nick, that you leave a signature after each post, as if we would have no idea who was posting unless we see a signature.

It's an old habit dating back to my extremely early years online (circa 1995) when someone tried impersonating me and ruining a friendship with an online friend I once had. So, it's a hard habit to break.

Carnivale and Twin Peaks. They both ended on cliffhangers.
