Good series that got the axe early on...

These shows were cancelled early but I do think that they should have been on air for seasons and seasons...

“ After the success of Babylon 5 this show was highly anticipated. Too bad TNT pulled the plug so early on. This is my number 1 cancelled show not just because it had potential but because it would have been great if they had simply kept in on air. ” - jumbopasatebos

“ Really a great drama that is criminally underated. William Fichtner as Sheriff is perfect and the show may be slow at some point, but has a great momentum. I enjoyed it for what it was but it desperately needed more time to develop. ” - jumbopasatebos

“ This show started on slowly during the "writer's strike" season but the second part of it is just amazing. Way better than half the official movies of the franchise it should have gotten much more space than it did especially for Lena Headey's performance. One and a half good seasons there, when Gossip Girl gets at least five. Pity. ” - jumbopasatebos

“ J.J Abrams rarely fails and this series had a stange albeit interesting concept. They axed it early on based on the fear that it was becoming very complicated, then again I believe that in a dvd format it could have been great. Just like a good strange story that goes on and on. Just imagine... ” - jumbopasatebos
