Re: Shows that should not have been cancelled?
Ahh, B5, that was a great sci fi series.
Actualy JMS always intended it to be a 5 year story arc but during Season 4 they didn't know if they would get
renewed for Season 5, so he crammed alot of story arc stuff into Season 4 and filmed the finale episode, Sleeping In Light,
in case it was cancelled, but TNT picked it up for another season so he had to backtrack a bit and throw in some
stuff to pad out Season 5, which is why IMO Season 5 wasn't that great, but the last couple of episodes and the
series finale made up for it.
I have to give credit to JMS for being able to change some things in his 5 year plan to account for actors or actresses
leaving the show and still keep continuity as best he could.
As for some shows I think got cancelled to soon
Quantum Leap- that last ep was never ment to be the finale, they thought NBC was gonna renew but they
cancelled instead. That still bothers me.
The Pretender- 4 seasons was not enough, at least TNT made two follow up up tv movies but like QL they haven't
given the show a proper finale. I doubt we'll ever get it now.
Farscape- freaking awesome show, hated Sc Fi Channel when it cancelled it out of nowhere after Season 4.
Thankfully they came to their senses after the fan backlash and gave us The Peacekeeper War's mini series
to wrap up the show, but also left the door open for more adventures in the future, which their just starting to do from what I heard.
Jericho- CBS never gave this show a chance, and if it wasn't for the die hard fans campaign with the Nuts we would never
have gotten the second season, and then they kill it again. I hear their going to try and put together a movie to
follow up where things left off in Season 2, good luck with that I say.
Pushing Daises- A really different show and alot of fun, loved the humor. I was so ticked that ABC cancelled it after
just 2 seasons.
That's all I think of at the moment, I would add Firefly to the list but I never saw the show so I can't
comment on it.
