My List Of The Greatest Canceled Shows Ever !!, 12 July 2007

Cover Up was one of the best. I've enjoyed it so much. But I discovered later that nobody watched it except me !!

It was a good espionage plot with a lot of erotic elements. You can get it easily from a small plot summary such as (a young photographer and her models in the spying business) or (a fashion house as a front for special intelligence). So it provides good sexy girls with good action too. And no wonder, it was the Charlie's Angels-era. It came out 8 years after of the beginning of Charlie's Angels and OH BOY the 1980s were the golden years for the female beauty on TV where every thing was at its top : the fashion, the hairdos, the nice bodies…WAW it was my golden years too !

Here you'll have it all. And I promise you every thing is sexy and real real hot. I think this show, and its likes of the same era, put the ideal definition for the most exquisite female seduction you'd ever have from a TV-series, starting from all the pretty girls in here (Jennifer O'Neill is out of them of course) to the bright colorful cinematography. There are moments of pure sexiness done with class. Some of them went directly to the classic section of my memories. For example; who can forget Catherine Oxenberg taking a bubble bath at the pilot episode? It seems now so peaceful and tame, but back then, it was daring.

Yes, the sudden death of Jon-Erik Hexum was disappointing, being an early reason to end the show. But for me Antony Hamilton was that good as well. Unfortunately THEY finally canceled it after only 20 episodes, and it's my eternal importunate question : why on earth do they cancel it ?! My fuss gets larger and larger when you find another shows (real very stupid ones) which lasted that long like La Femme Nikita (5 Seasons), or Nash Bridges (6 Seasons)..etc, while there were a lot of nice shows that got canceled for no convincing reason. Therefore I'm giving you my list of them as honoring and as an epitaph ! :

1 - Secret Agent Man (2000) 12 Episodes

2 - Cover Up (1984) 20 Episodes

3 - Vengeance Unlimited (1998) 16 Episodes

4 - Over My Dead Body (1990) 12 Episodes

5 - The Lone Gunmen (2001) 13 Episodes

6 - The Hat Squad (1992) 12 Episodes

7 - A Man Called Hawk (1989) 13 Episodes

A due tribute to all of them all and their die hard fans. Oh how I miss the rare good time which I've had and could have with anyone of the previous late shows. If only they lasted a bit more.
