I'm bored, and I'm sure this has been covered before but I'm too lazy to look.


Name your top 5 or 10 shows that got the axe too soon.

The Class (2006)
Four Kings (2006)
Gary & Mike (2001)
It's All Relative (2003-04)
Neighbors From Hell (2010)(I think it's cancelled anyway)
Rita Rocks (2008-09)
Some of My Best Friends (2001)

Darn it, I knew I forgot one. I loved loved LOVED that show. They really should have at least gave the show a run for the length of time the actual mining camp existed - which was about 5 years I think.

I loved the show and it had great potential. I agree it should lasted a few more seasons, especially since some story lines were just being developed.

The series finale sucked. All of season three they were leading up to a huge fight and it happen, and the ending lines were stupid.

That was definitely one of those great shows that wasn't given even the most itty bitty remote chance of making it.


Thought of a few others I miss - Robbery Homicide Division, Space Above and Beyond, Earth 2

I think I miss normal TV in general, I'll admit to watching a couple "reality" programs but 99% of the rest is absolute crap.

Actually, it was promoted more heavily than X-Files when the two shows first premiered in the same season. Fox thought that the cowboy genre would be the hit, and X-Files was the dark horse to succeed.

Wow I didn't remember that. I remember more commercials for Briscoe when it went in to syndication than when it was on Fox, but at that time I didn't watch the channel all that much except for stuff like X-Files and other similar random programs.
