Arrested Development dammit!

I think Fox COULD have commissioned it for another series but they were just CHICKEN.

I second this. I'll have to go watch the DVDs again soon (Can't wait for the movie).

every time someone posts in this thread, I want to say that, and I probably have said it in this thread before, but you know what? The (on and only) reason I'm glad it got canceled is that it never had a chance to go on for too long and suck...

So Revolution ended tonight after only 2 seasons and I heard that Almost Human also got canceled after one. :(

Warehouse 13 (5 seasons) and Being Human (4 seasons) also got canceled but they had much longer runs.

I liked all those shows :(

I thought Warehouse 13 ended years ago.

Almost Human was another Fox show not produced by Fox.  No matter how good these shows are, Fox cancels them.  Fox wants successful shows without paying successful show prices... and when they are not produced in house, that will never happen.
To be fair to Fox, Almost Human wasn't actually that good.  There were a lot of neat ideas, and the cast chemistry was good, but the execution suffered.
Nefarious?  Nearly.  Ne’er-do-well?  Never!  Neither nearly names this narrator.  Naive and knowledgeable, notorious and inscrutable, this nascent Nero is known naturally as Neoadept.

Well, clearly your personal preferences are wrong.

Oh, we're not saying that Fox doesn't have a habit of killing good shows for bad reasons.  I love Firefly.

I'm just saying that Almost Human kinda deserved it.  Instead of doing actual world building they introduced a crazy future thing every week that would have been interesting if it were ever referenced again, and then never referenced it again.

Seriously, they drop THE WALL in out of nowhere and then refuse to explain anything about it.

Also, the psychic lady was a terrible addition to a sci-fi show.
