Was there a particular show that you loved watching that got canned? Anything more obscure, rather than say..."Seinfeld"? I loved the HBO show "Dream On". With the recent trend of putting entire seasons of television shows on DVD, I have yet to see that show on DVD. What about the rest of you?

Oh where to start...

The Tick
The Critic
The State
Nowhere Man
My So Called Life (Just Kidding LOL)

I didn't know Are You Afraid of the Dark got cancelled. I just thought it ran its course back in the day.

I never really liked Rocko's Modern life, don't know why but it just wasn't funnyy to me. Swank theme song though.

I'm not sure if the cartoon garfield show got cancelled or not, but it was funny as hell and once again had a good theme song.

Ummm...that's a good question. A few that come to mind:

WCW Saturday Night
Camp Wilder
Family Guy
Animaniacs (the cartoon show)

Those are all I can think of at this present moment.

SD2: April, Year 3; what's the point to the Career mode, anyhow?
FF7: Disc 1; 4h into game; en route to the next reactor
FF8: Disc 2; 15h into game; Squall, Rinoa, Irvine vs. Master NORG.
FF9: Disc 1; 6h into game; Hunting down Dagger after she drugged me!

"Firehouse". It lasted 13 episodes in 1974. Loosely based on a TV movie in 1973 that still shows up on television once in awhile starring Shaft himself, Richard Roundtree

The TV series had nothing to do with the movie plot (one cast member, two character names, and Engine 23 were pretty much the only things saved according to IMDB) and was put together as a half hour single engine company knockoff of "Emergency", which I also was a big fan of.

an Anchor Bay or somebody put out a DVD of the movie and series together as a package, though it would be financially absurd to do so, especially since the movie is available on DVD for five bucks.

As a fun aside, as I was putting together info on this at IMDB, I found it funny that IMDB's one "If you liked this you'll like..." recommendation is Disney's "Holes".

I can't believe no one remembers the genius TV that was "Manimal".

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

*Mission Hill
*The Tick (cartoon)
*Friday the 13th. The Series - Don't know if this counts because it actually got a respectable run.
*Jack of All Trades

Homicide: Life on the Street

Was there a better cop show than this? Ever? Law and Order, and even The Shield can't compare to Homicide. In its prime (pretty much its entire run) it was a show to behold. And Andre Braugher and Kyle Secor going after someone in the box? True must see TV.
