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.

Eleventh Hour

A drama about a government scientist who teams up with a Police officer/FBI agent to investigate some unusual cases.

The UK series starring Patrick Stewart lasted just 4 episodes but was then somehow picked up for an America series, with Rufus Sewell playing the role that Stewart originally played. This was also canned, after a 18 episodes.

I really enjoyed both incarnations of the show and think it was definitely cancelled too early!

Earth: Final Conflict

From Wikipedia:
Earth: Final Conflict is a Canadian science fiction television series based on story ideas created by Gene Roddenberry, and produced under the guidance of his widow, Majel Barrett-Roddenberry. It was not produced, filmed or broadcast until after his death. It ran for five seasons between October 6, 1997, and May 20, 2002.

----------------------------------------

I am only mourning the first season. The aliens were alien and we did not know why they were here. William Boone (Kevin Kilner) was an adult who showed emotional depth. Ronald Sandoval (Von Flores) was a man whose alien leash was too tight. He was a volcano that was waiting to erupt.

During the second season, the network jumped in and tried to spiff it up for a younger viewing audience. They only destroyed it.

Flash Forward

Superb science fiction drama with an intriguing premise: what if everyone in the world fell unconscious for 2 minutes and, while unconscious, had a 2 minute vision of what they would be doing 5 months in the future? The fact that the show was put on a 3 month hiatus thanks to the Olympics probably didn't help keep viewers.

I'm almost embarrassed to add this...but the Flash Gordon show on SyFy really surprised me.

It sure didn't seem right, with Flash & Co. popping back and forth to Mongo every week. We almost stopped watching it...but then it seemed to pick up and POW! Season Finale! Flash stranded on Mongo. Hey, this might be getting cool! Now it's canceled!



Of course, that happened to some of my other favorites on this list (most notably Journeyman and FlashForward).

I'd be willing to sign a contract with the networks: I'll watch your show if you promise to renew it...or at least give us a made-for-TV movie to wrap up any massive dangling plot threads.

Forever Knight

Not one that should ever be resurrected because aside from a number of missteps in the third season, this series ran just long enough and has one of the best series finale episodes ever aired. Plus, tonnes of footage of early 90's Toronto!

I'm sure I overlooked someone else's entry, since it's impossible for this list to get this far without someone mentioning it, but I couldn't find it, so here it is.

And I'm sure many of you are bitter and resentful because we got our show back, after enough whining to end world hunger and bring peace to the galaxy. But take it as a sign of hope.

I could have done with more of this show, but the Gary Coleman episode was still the best. Now that I read its on chiller, maybe I can catch it again.

Certainly a "fantasy" setting.

Where else can a bunch of island-shipwrecked misfits can they order chicken deliveries?

Certainly could've used more episodes if we were going to be stuck watching those same seasons for over half a century.

If Wonderfalls counts as sci-fi, does Joan of Arcadia count as well? Consider also Friedman before you answer...

Just as the show was maturing from a feel-good or preachy series into a nice paranormal/spiritual warfare story, it ended suddenly.

This one was interesting...

A man that knows everything, about everything?? The show was fun, since the main character helped the police with his knowledge. But I wanted to know why he had that knowledge...

And I was thrilled with the season's finale... his best friend was his worst enemy? and in the last scene? God! I wanted to see what happened next!

And I waited... and waited... Since in Latinamerica we get the series almost a year later, I went online to know what happened next, just to discover the series was cancelled. I followed that series for months only to be left without an end?

From that moment, until now, every time I see a tv spot about a new series, I look for reviews, comments, and hints about future seasons. I will NOT commit to a series that is not going to end... And that has saved me from The Event, Flash Forward, and several others.
