It's really sad when you think of how much potentially great television has been canceled by Fox TV.
It's easy to just think of Roar as some Dungeons and Dragons clone, but it was really so much more. Regardless of the genre of any television show, it's the characters that make or break a show, and Roar had some great characters. My two favorites where John Saint Ryan's Fergus and Sebastian Roche's Longinus. These are two really good actors who just don't get enough real work.
Had Roar been able to stay true to its epic story roots, with Conor trying to reunite Ireland, then this could have been a great show.
