Cancelled way too soon!

Great shows that were cancelled way before their time. Roswell and Dollhouse and a couple other shows were cancelled because of low ratings but knew they were getting cancelled so were able to write endings to the shows. Unfortunately these endings were very rushed and disappointing so I included them on this list.
