How could digimon have been canceled too soon. It plagued saturday mornings for about 5 seasons and spawned one of those obnoxious trading card fads.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I wasn't adding that to the list, I was just saying as an off note in refrence to the little thing I said when i started this thread, and that guy asked. (it was 4 seasons by the way.)
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

I totally agree with Star Trek Enterprise... Sure they may have taken a few too many episodes trying to finish a story arc, but there were some real gems in there.  The alternate universe episodes (2) were great.

I didn't even know about this show until it was cancelled, I had to download all of the episodes.

I think what got it cancelled was just that it took too long for something to happen... They would have one whole season about one conflict, and it would take forever, at first it would be interesting, but by the end it got kinda boring... Ya ya ya, come on, we know whats happening...
XYZZY!

I just thought of another one to add to the list. Twilight zone, the 2002-03 revival.
Forest Whitaker (seen here: http://www.scifiuk.com/data/shows/newtwilightzone/images/episodes.jpg) actually made a very good host.
My favorite episodes included
"How much do you love your kid": http://www.tv.com/the-twilight-zone-2002/how-much-do-you-love-your-kid/episode/231275/recap.html which explores what would happen if reality shows kept going too far...
The sims Reminicent "Upgrade": http://www.tv.com/the-twilight-zone-2002/upgrade/episode/202120/recap.html
And the bonechilling "Sunrise": http://www.tv.com/the-twilight-zone-2002/sunrise/episode/242703/recap.html

You can get the whole series on dvd for like $15. I might...

I'm gonna go ahead and cast another vote for "Sports Night" although you can see some of Emperor Sorkin's new clothes with that show, since plot lines, bits of dialogue, etc. often found their way into episodes of "The West Wing" a few seasons later.

I'll also toss in "Early Edition" -- basic premise is about a guy who gets a newspaper with tomorrow's news a day early, and he can try and change things. It's not the most original premise (see "Leap, Quantum" ;) ), but it was well done.

Pirates of Darkwater! It was cut way too soon, you never find out if they found the last treasure! And the fact that they aren't on DVD or even more then one video sucks.

Oh, and of course, Firefly was way short on Fox.

Wow, this makes me realize how long it's been since I was an active user here.

Fox seems to have a habit of canceling great shows.
In that line of thought I'm adding Andy Ricther Controls the Universe and The Critic.

(Click for links to the shows)

I have been told
not by one but two of my lovers
that I've got a heart of gold
but I'm unable to share it with others
They call me a poet who'll never have a poem
a tiger with no taste for bone
I'm the wonderful wonderful wizard who's waltzing alone

Reboot.

Maybe not cancelled too soon, but I still miss it. I recently saw some VHS tapes of the show for sale, but it's too expensive until they put it on DVD. Same with Pirates of Darkwater.

It is on DVD in England, I haven't looked into whether or not it will come here.

I'm sure it will. In which case I will only own up to the Black WarGreymon series. He's my favorite. And everything after the first series was crap.

In Australia, they always cancel good shows and such.  If they are doing well in America, they still seem to cancel them, or just show the episodes over a long timespan until nobody notices (well i do!!).  Anyway, i remember a show i liked Earth 2, which was cancelled here i think after a few episodes.  I was also sad when Sliders suddenly slipped away into another dimension only to return very late at night 3 years later..and still havent seen all of season 5 (although the show was never the same when Jerry O'connel left and Sabrina Lloyd and John Ryse Davies (the proffessor). The first two seasons of sliders were still the best, it just SLID away after that..lol

i'm hoping one day remake of sliders! ;)
