    I would say my fav was "Dead Like Me". Ran for 2 seasons. It was a quirky show with a great cast who all played the satirical humour perfectly.

    I hate it when they cancel a show and never give you an ending at least they give give an 1 hour ending for an conclusion. I will miss eli stone, Life, Kyle XY, Theshold, Listener, Reaper, the 4400, New Amsterdam, Shark. One thing I really hate is when they end a show after a few episodes.

    Dead like me, great movie though after it was cancelled.

    Firefly, why was it cancelled it was way far ahead in its kind.

    Primeval, great british show with awesome art and creature effects.

    The list can go on and on with great shows that have bin cut short. So many terrible shows always gets to run on for many more seasons.

    It's a shame that people who pay the bills, look to hard on ratings and not for the quility of the show. Some shows just might not reach a high point in ratings, but it doesn't make it a terrible show in the long run. Many shows like Star Trek always comes out in the top if it is left alone.

    I like the old shows, too. I'd like to see more of Fawlty Towers. Also the original Outer Limits.

    I felt the Sarach Connor Chronicles was running out of steam. I mean, as a TV series, unlike the movies, there's the burden of creating enough storyline to last an entire season. Which why it felt like the storyline really didn't have any direction and lost it's connection with the movies. I'm kind of glad it ended where it did.

    As for show that ended before it's time, I felt Carpoolers ended too soon. There was a great collection of characters, that ranged from the average man to the ridiculous. I'm Chuck got the call back for a third season.
