Drama wise I think it is a shame that Carnivale didn't last longer. It is a very underrated show with a great cast, and a very engrossing story that is unlike any show I can think of recently. The finale didn't even wrap up the story properly. Spaced is another one that should have lasted longer. It is one of the best comedies ever. Thankfully the finale did wrap things up, but I really wanted to see more.

But Andy Whitfield has cancer so season two is going to need a complete overhaul.

As much as I love AD, I'm not so sure.  The third season was definitely showing signs that the writers were running out of ideas (the over-reliance on guest stars) and I think that there is something to be said for going out leaving people wanting more.  The fact that the episodes are endlessly rewatchable also helps. 
 
As dire as most of "Star Trek: Enterprise" was, it was kind of frustrating to see it get axed right as it was finally doing some interesting things. 
 
And I have to pour one out for "Babylon 5," whose cancellation and then pick-up by TNT after Season 4 really screwed up the 5 year story arc.  Of course, it still had the best series finale I've ever seen, which helps quite a bit.

Universe is clearly no SG-1, but it's still miles better than Atlantis in my mind (I like all three shows by the way).
#16 Edited by Pinworm45 (4088 posts) -

Babylon 5 (it finished but I want more) 
 
Firefly 
  
Rome (same as Babylon 5)  
 
And Threshold (I want my foothold and stranglehold)

Going through this thread, this is the first show I've actually heard of. 
 
I hate TV.

Rome was so fucking good.  Also, Hornblower.

#24 Posted by Deeveeus (479 posts) -
@Marcsman: I loved Rome, but I think it's a show that was so great because it had the end it had. The writers had that story to tell and didn't write it with the intent of going forever. The Shield is a show like this (arguale it could have ended earlier)...and it went out well...we don't want to Dexter every goo show

Twin Peaks! :'(

#32 Edited by RavenX302 (258 posts) -

There is no man funnier than Redd Roxx and if the show's humor and actors didn't go so badly around the 4 season than Sanford and Son could have lasted at least 5 or 6 more seasons than it did. It probably would have lasted longer than six seasons anyway if Redd didn't apparently quit. which is funny because he went on to do junky spin off shows. Either way, unfortunately the humor was most certianly dead by the fifth season anyway.

On Carnivale: I watched that show every week asking myself, wtf is this, and is this a different interpretation of Stephen Kings The Stand. 
 
My choice like so many others, Arrested Development. More chicken dance would be pretty awesome.

Agree on The 4400, that show could've been so much more
#37 Posted by thegoldencat7 (1488 posts) -

Theres a lot to be said for quality over quantity, going out on a high, and leaving people wanting more. Fawlty Towers and Cowboy Bebop are good examples of this. 
Otherwise you just end up like the Simpsons which was last funny about 10 years ago.

Hell yeah Freaks and Geeks, love that show.
 
Undeclared, Fastlane, Firefly, Dead Like Me, Moonlight, Wonder Falls. 
 
And last but not least...
 
The Golden Girls. (200 Seasons is not enough, thank you for being a friend)

Pure pwnage, its very focused in its market share audience but still i thought some episodes were priceless, like when he brought a chick home and had her playing xbox.

I forgot  Small Wonder. I wanted to see what happen's when the Vicky is supposed to hit puberty.

Anyway. I say NewsRadio and Kids In The Hall.

Oh my god. I didn't realise his cancer had returned and that he had actually backed out of the show now. Thanks man, you're a real dick. Ruining my life. I'm gonna jump off a roof.
#44 Posted by Getz (2986 posts) -

Spaced definitely dude. Also Avatar: The Last Airbender (what?! It's a good show!), Fawlty Towers and Firefly I wish had some more episodes to watch cause they're all just so damn good.

#45 Posted by fraser (478 posts) -

Garth Marenghi's Darkplace. Although it isn't canonically possible.......but ssh.

#46 Edited by Nitrocore (369 posts) -

Arrested development, The black donnelys, The prisoner - uk series)

#47 Posted by Twisted_Scot (1174 posts) -

I think Flight of the conchords could have had 1 maybe 2 more seasons but i agree with:

Arrested Development
Spaced
Firefly 

and although it was a kind of a Quantum leap rip off i thought journeyman was actually getting kinda interesting before that canceled it.
