It's not like I posted it. I just figured I'd give an answer before a mod moved it.

Same here. In b4 move.

Day Break

That series only aired 6 episodes in the US. You could watch the rest online. And it was a FANTASTIC show.

Detective Bret Harper is having a bad day. Over and over again!

Firefly(REALLY angry about that) At least they finished it with a movie.

My Name is Earl (Maybe they'll finish it with a TV movie?) Sigh, probably not…

Batman Beyond (But they kind of wrapped that one up with Jokers Revenge and the Justice League Unlimited episode)

I also was not at all pleased with How Transformers Animated wrapped up… Grr…

Pushing Daisies

Dragonball Z

Uhh, what? It's way too long as it is already. Maybe if it was less padded. Thanks to this show I developed an allergy for overly padded anime where 3/4 of an episode consists out of flashbacks, stretched out “intense” scenes and so on. I mean, flashbacks are fine, sure, as long as they show something that happened BEFORE the series started, some new material. And not repeating the bits from the last six episodes. Ugh.

Anyway….


Futurama (as a tv series, it could use few more seasons. MUCH better than the Simpsons)
Galatic Pirates (also known as The Enemy is The Pirates! and Teki wa Kaizoku) is only 6 episodes long! Now, back in the day when I saw it on TV, I didn't understand the concept of an OVA and I expected it to run for quite a while. Nope, sorry. I remember being sooo pissed when I prepared forthe next episode, only to find Transformers!

as for non-animated stuff…

Twin Peaks, I hate the damned bizarre cliffhanger from end of season two.
Robin of Sherwood, a british Robin Hood series from the 80s. Sadly lasted only three seasons (which were 6, 7, and 13 episodes long). What was good about it was the fact that it tried to root the legend and magic in reality. No more guys prancing around the forest in tights with feathered caps and perfectly trimmed goatees. Sadly, series were cancelled and season four never happened :(

This.

Manimal.
Really? I think that show had such potential to be kick ass, but never was. He could become ANY animal, but they only used two. The same two. A hawk and a panther. On every show. I think a low budget killed that show.

Plus

Misfits of science
Titus
Chapelle's Show
The Shield

I'll agree about Arrested Development. It was brilliant and it has been taken from us. However, it did sort of get some form of closure, which was nice. In a way, it was allowed to “end” before it became crappy. In many ways its last season was just as funny or funnier than the first season.

The two shows I'm angry about losing lately are King of the Hill and My Name is Earl. I'm hoping both will get some kind of closure.

And of course I'm glad we're getting Futurama back. I hope the new episodes are up to par with the original episodes. We've got all the original cast coming back, so there's plenty of hope.

I agree with Farscape and Batman Beyond and Arrested Development.
Grrg. All of the good shows get booted off while crappy ones stay on for years.

Me and my brother actually counted how many times there was blood in BB, there were like, four (although very small, like a bloody nose or a scratch). We just made a joke that it was canceled because uptight, anal parents got angry because of blood in the show.
In truth, I don't know the reasons for its cancellation (whether it was funding or ratings, I don't know) but I still would have liked it to go on longer. At least I have my DVD set to watch whenever I'm in the mood.

Whaaaat? Really? Golly gee, I didn't know this. This news has brought jolly feelings to this cold heart of mine.

These have not;
Samurai Jack

he became more, but they didn't show the transformation sequences. I remember him being a kitten once and diving into this woman's cleavage ^_^
THEN he made a saucy joke about it afterwards lol!

Aaaaaanyway, transforming into a panther was cool enough. he didn't need anything but that and the hawk, that rocked! -Smooth James Bond type guy (not like modern shit robot Bond by that Craig dickhead) who could use really innovative ways to solve various puzzles and get out of jams. Manimal was a good idea. :)

Highwayman could have gone on a lot longer too. That was like Airwolf and Knightrider on steroids. -Truck-driving madmax style police guys with sawn off shotguns for side arms, in trucks that could split off into helicopters and supercar sports cars ^___^
And the actual episodes had fairly decent stories too.

I remember that show. Barely.

I know: Automan! That was a great show :)
All the effects of Tron. It was sort of a bit like Reeboot too in that the computer guy had a powerful sidekick caller “cursor” who would help him out making vehicles and things. Plus, he drove a Lamborghini Countach.

One that hasn't been said yet is the Oblongs. I love this show, and it's really a shame it got canceled after one season.

These weren't canceled. They just ended. I'm sure if the creator(s) pitched another season to their respective stations, they would be snapped up in a second.
