Firefly is an American science fiction television series created by writer/director Joss Whedon, creator of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel, under his Mutant Enemy Productions. Its naturalistic future setting, modeled after traditional Western movie motifs, presents an atypical backdrop for the science fiction narrative. Whedon served as executive producer, along with Tim Minear. http://www.fireflyfans.net/

Quantum Leap is an American science fiction television series that ran for 96 episodes from March 1989 to May 1993 on the NBC network. The plot involves scientist Sam Beckett (Scott Bakula) leaping to various points in time, and into the life of a different person, usually constrained within the period of his own lifetime. His only link with his own time is the cigar smoking, womanizing Al (Dean Stockwell), who appears to Sam as a hologram that nobody else can see. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0096684/
At times I loved this show and at others I found it hard to follow and a little tedious. The dialogue was so specific to the time that I often felt as though I was reading Shakespeare. (Sometimes it just went over my head.) Nevertheless, it was a gritty and different program; it's a shame it's no longer on the air. http://www.hbo.com/deadwood/
My So-Called Life was an American television teen drama created by Winnie Holzman and produced by Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz that aired on ABC from August 25, 1994, to January 26, 1995. It was set at the fictional Liberty High in Three Rivers, Pennsylvania, a fictional suburb of Pittsburgh. The critically acclaimed show was short-lived and ended in a cliffhanger with the expectation that it would be picked up in an additional season. 19 episodes were produced before it was cancelled on May 15, 1995, due both to low ratings and to the reluctance, expressed behind the scenes, of star Claire Danes to return for its second season. http://www.mscl.com/

Why does this site require me to connect to facebook to add an entry? I don't want to do that, I want my accounts separate!!
I don't like being forced into things like that. so here goes, my list:
- Police Squad: Starring Leslie Neilson as Frank Drebin
It lasted only 6 episodes before being cancelled for low ratings, and then was converted into a hugely successful movie franchise!
- Better off Ted: Excellent cast, really enjoyable, light funny series about the daily operations of an evil medical and scientific corporation
- Less Than Perfect: Solid cast with many up and comers and lots of TV veterans, Sara Rue is the main protagonist and is charming and funny.
- Kyle XY
- Aliens in America
- Lookwell: Starring Adam West and written by Conan O Brien
- Tonight Show with Conan O Brien
Ok, a couple of things!
First of all, why is Friends and Seinfeld on the list of cancelled shows?
They weren't cancelled!
The shows creators along with the actors agreed that it was about time to end the shows on a high note, and they both had rather huge finales that closed the story arcs! The networks certainly did not cancel them!
10 seasons is more than enough for any live tv show, no matter how good it is!
So Seinfeld and Friends certainly don't count here!
invader zim... it's a shame cause it's awsome
I was partial to a CBS newsmagazine called "West 57th" which was like a hipper version of 60 Minutes from the mid-1990's. ESPN currently has a similar format that they are trying with "E:60" that is a carbon-copy of "West 57th".
But nothing compares to "The State" on MTV. Weird and bizarre it was like eating jalepano ice cream.
Where's Scrubs? Recently cancelled but cancelled nonetheless!
Man oh man, where do all these shows go to die? I found some on Netflix...but I need new episodes too!
