TV history is filled with old shows that had a cult following of sorts and then got cancelled. What was your favorite show that got cancelled and why???

Mine was "Fastlane".........in the height of the Matrix rip-off era McG crashed on the scene with his big-screen remake of Charlie's Angels. Anyone who's seen it knows that as frivolous as it was---it WAS fun to watch and had style to burn.

McG then turned his attention to a TV series. It was big, flashy, and stupid. To me it was the new Miami Vice. Black cop, white cop....deep undercover and living the flashy life. It even starred the cinematic genius....Bill Belamy!!!!:lol:

Anyways----they're running reruns on G4 and CourtTV and I couldn't be happier. Well I could if they would just bring it to DVD finally!!!!!




What's yor guy's fav????

Century City.

It was a show that was about lawyers in the year 2020. It was an extremely realistic vision of the near future, and each episode there would be a case about something to do with technology vs. humanity(eg. should this 6 year old boy be allowed to have the memories of his violent drunk mother erased and grow up thinking his step mom is his real mother).

It stared Ioan Coillfer(Mr. Fantastic) and a bunch of other great actors. I watched it every week for the one season that it aired and was extremely disapointed when it was cancelled.

My blood boils when I think about how good Crusade would've been if it had continued.

It's not cancelled when it does what its supposed to do, within the number of shows its supposed to air. If it's only meant to be one season with X amount of shows, than its not a cancelled show.

Was it originally pitched as a miniseries? Because if not, then it was cancelled, no matter if they conveniently found a way to end the series within its lifetime or not.

Basically, yes. It was never meant to be longer than it went.

Did you happen to see the new cartoon by the creator of Home Movies? It's called Lucy, The Daughter of the Devil. GREAT cartoon, kills me that the coach from Home Movies does the voice of the Devil
