I was watching the scifi channel yesterday and was reminded of two scifi series I followed in the 1990s that got cancelled - Alien Nation and Earth 2. Which got me thinking of what we might have missed in terms of scifi sagas (pretty depressing) that got canned early! Some earned a conclusion more graceful than others, mind you...

On this list you can nominate your favourite scifi/fantasy TV series that got canned too soon. I have added a few of my own favourites to get you rolling.

Nominations end Sunday at 21 EST
. After that I will set up the first voting round. NOMINATION PERIOD OVER.

PLEASE VOTE HERE

17th PRECINCT

Change the 'Space' to 'Fantasy' and you would have had this pilot-only series from last year focused on a police squad in a fantasy-heavy alternate modern world. The space connection is still there in the number of cast-members tied to BSG. Shame this was never given a chance when so many other poor shows were greenlit.

The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.

Genre: Western, Sci Fi
Created by Jeffrey Boam and Carlton Cuse
Channel: Fox
Original run: Aug 1993-May 1994
No. of episodes: 27

I always like Firefly and Brisco County because one was a SciFi with a western theme and other is Western with a Sci Fi theme.



http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventures_of_Brisco_County....

The series is set in 1893, and while ostensibly a western, it routinely includes elements of the science fiction and steampunk genres. A large number of episodes involve the mysterious Orb, a Macguffin which is from the future.

Bruce Campbell as Brisco County, Jr. - a Harvard-educated lawyer who has turned to life as a bounty hunter. Brisco is on a mission to locate and capture the men who murdered his father, a famous U.S. Marshall. Brisco had a strained relationship with his distant father, who was often away on assignment during Brisco's childhood. Brisco is a futurist who is always looking for "the coming thing," whether it be a cutting-edge technology or a progressive social concept. Besides the human characters on the show, Brisco is closest to his horse, Comet, and the two show an apparent ability to understand each other's language.

John Astin played Professor Wickwire, an inventor who provides Brisco assistance with anachronistic technology, such as diving suits, motorcycles, rockets, and airships.

It needed just a more interesting ending than that "everything goes to hell" end they gave us.

The sequel made in part by Joss Whedon in the comic book called "After the Fall" was just painfully bad IMO.

It's the sad thing with sequels to sci-fi TV shows made with comics. They are not stuck with bidget problems, so they go over the top with stuff that could never make it to the screen. In this case, LA became a gigantic Mad Max post-apocalypse setting with demons everywhere, flying dragons, explosions and beasts 200 feets tall of Godzilla proportions.

It just wasn't Angel anymore... it was an over the top super hero comic book...

It was the same problem with Buffy season 8...

How about Babylon Fields?

Here's a show that got canceled before the pilot even aired!

Basic premise, in the small town of Babylon, (Iowa IIRC?), the dead are coming back to life. And not just the recent dead, dead that should have been decayed to nothing, coming back almost (but not quite) good as new...

And not evil or monstrous, just slightly rotting and confused.

Almost made it onto CBS in 2007, dropped, apparently, because the implied sex between a risen zombie and his wife apparently was a little to close to necrophilia for some of the Execs at the network.

Pilot can be found here: Babylon Fields Pilot on Google Video

This was a short-lived sitcom that took place at the research headquarters of Veridian Dynamics. The lab was often producing bizarre new products, such as cowless beef, that didn't quite work as desired. I was sad when it was canceled, but not surprised.

Probably spawned from Buffy and Smallville, the series may have been a slight failure in the metahuman crime stories but the concept was so cool noone could pass it. I mean, Batman's daughter? I loved the series just because it captured the essence of the Batman comics: moody, dark, with heroes reaching even lower depths and making more sacrifices. I was very sad it was cancelled.

The costumes looked nice

Blake's Seven

This is always supposed to be the classic British Sci-Fi canned too early, so I don't understand why it is not on the list. Got a cult following, though I was never quite sure why. On checking on WIkipedia, there was rather more produced of it than I thought, and certainly more than I remembered.

18 episodes, prequel to Battlestar Galactica. A little slow moving, but I didnt mind, I liked the whole package - actors, story, characters, plot....

Shouldnt have been cancelled, especially since the SyFy channel has so little on it which could be classified as science fiction.

This was such an oddball idea that it never had a chance. I have no idea how it got on in the first place, but it predictably only lasted a few episodes.

Basically, this was L.A. Law, set about 30 years in the future. It featured futuristic cases involving stuff like cloning and genetic engineering, if I remember right. What I saw of it was okay, not great, but with good writing it could have really turned into something. (Of course, there's a statement you can make about almost any show.)

I think I was the only person who watched this, but I could be wrong.

Dark Angel

I can't believe that this wasn't listed earlier. The 2nd season was not nearly as good as the first season. But this show really launched Jessica Alba's career and presented an interesting and dark view of the US after the pulse.

I really enjoyed this show and was looking forward to seeing the conclusion of the story arcs from the second season.

The only good thing about Dark Angel being cancelled was that Firefly took it's place -- and when that was ended after less than one season, I was doubly bitter.

This one made it past pilot but was still canceled mid-season after only a handful of episodes. Thankfully they were made available online so you can still check out Taye Diggs showing what Groundhog Day would have been like as a cop show.

Original run: June 27, 2003 to October 31, 2004
Originally aired on SHOWTIME

Starring: Mandy Patinkin, Ellen Muth, Callum Blue, Jasmine Guy, Cynthia Stevenson, Christine Willes, Britt McKillip, Laura Harris, and Rebecca Gayheart

Episodes are available on Internet Movie Database, but you will have to register to watch them because some of the material is inappropriate for those under 17.



There was also a full length movie
Dead Like Me: Life After Death
Aired on February 17, 2009

My personal comment:
This show was funny, touching, and deeply meaningful. The writers were brilliant at making me laugh one minute and crying the next. It is worth picking up this series. I would have loved to seen this series continue. A movie was made five years later without Mandy Patinkin and Laura Harris. However, the movie just did not live up to the original series, and I thought that the movie was a real disappointment.

Defying Gravity



It was marketed as "Grey's Anatomy in Space" but couldn't be further from the truth.

As the season progressed, it became awesome and very philosophical.

I still miss this show.

This is one never made it past pilot but it was written by Game of Throne's scribe George R.R. Martin and may have been pretty good given a chance.
