The best TV : always canceled!!
21 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

This series had some of the smartest and most relevant story lines ever aired regarding the problems of youth, crime and education. I was never a particular fan of Ed Asner or liberal politics, but this show should have had an honest shot at success. With Kathryn Harrold and Kathleen Beller, two seasoned actresses, and a fine ensemble cast backing Asner, this show could have made a difference. And this show lacked the vapid quality of L.A. Law or St. Elsewhere...this was Quality T.V. with capital letters. I am honestly sorry this show, "My So Called Life" and "Freaks and Geeks" were all canceled! Most shows are not even worth watching, so why the few quality shows seem to get prematurely canceled, I will never understand.
