It is my fortune (or misfortune) to like shows outside the mainstream; cult favorites, too-smart-for-the-general-public type shows. If it's in the top 10, I probably don't watch it. Most of the shows on this list didn't last all that long; the few that went multiple seasons probably could have gone longer, but for ratings. At any rate, here are the shows that I loved that for whatever reason, got short shrift from network execs and the rest of the viewing public.

A lot of these I've never gotten into, but I'm glad to see Fawlty Towers, The Young Ones, and Pushing Daisies on here. Of course I love MST3K, Monty Python, Black Adder, and some others here too. Feel free to check out my list of shows I miss.

Definitely miss a lot of these shows.

Most of these were not "cancelled". Creator driven British series tend not to last more than a series or two.

Didn't Life on Mars develop to Ashes to Ashes? Loved both shows.
Posted: 5 years, 9 months ago at Nov 18 18:11
Thanks for the vote and comment, Sam! Ashes to Ashes had some of the same characters as LoM, but took place nearly a decade later, so I would call it a sequel but not a continuation.

Breaking In is actually coming back in 2012...great show.
Posted: 5 years, 7 months ago at Jan 6 18:55
Firefly and My So-Called Life...two shows that I miss very, very much.
Posted: 4 years, 5 months ago at Mar 20 7:55
good list but as Abhi said some of the shows like Fawlty Towers, Jonathon Creek simply stopped because the writers could not come up with any more good ideas - rather than flog a dead horse they moved on

Any list like this needs Tower Prep http://www.listal.com/tv/tower-prep - possibly the best teens show I have seen
