Great list. I especially miss Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies.
Posted: 5 years ago at May 16 23:43
I'm for Pushing Daisies and Firefly.

And I'd add Dark Angel, but that's just meh. XD

Thanks for the comments. I definitely miss Pushing Daisies, one of the best shows in the past 10 years.

I've decided that I should stop commenting that I enjoy new shows...they always get canceled on me. It is really sad that networks don't even give new shows a chance anymore. I'm really PO'ed about them canceling "FlashForward." What exactly did ABC expect when they put a new show up against a well loved showed such as "Survivor"? Obviously the ratings were going to tank for "FlashForward" once the season of "Survivor" started -- IDIOTS!

There are some shows there I always wanted to watch but never actually did. I'll look for it tough. Best shows are cancelled too soon. It's like smart shows are easier to forget.. go figure.

I agree with every show on here (especially Arrested Development) except I couldn't get into Jericho. I would also add "Twin Peaks" and "Dog Bites Man" if I were to make a list... maybe I should do that.

I have wonderfalls on my instant netflix queue.----check them out--if you stream movies

Being a Joss Whedon fan I think FIrefly was canceled too soon, as for Whedon alumni Nathan Fillon's "Drive" both were really good shows, that were never given a chance to get a fan following. Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles was canceled too soon as well

Some very good shows here.
Just watched Arrested Development recently, and I almost cry when I think about how there are so many crappy US sitcoms still on tv, and this got cancelled after 3 seasons. :(

Firefly was amazing, and would've been like one of my top 5 shows ever if it had a few more seasons, I'd say.

Pushing Dasies is overrated, but good.
I wanna watch Dead Like Me soo.

Flashforward wasn't great in my opinion.

Rubicon and Terriers!

I loved Arrested Development , that show was a lot of potential.
Posted: 3 years ago at May 13 11:07
Deadwood was great, why the hell did they cancel it! Arrested Development, FlashForward and Jericho were quite good also. Didn't liked Pushing Daisies, Firefly and Dead Like Me.
Posted: 3 years ago at May 13 11:11
I totally agree. I miss theses shows :(
Posted: 3 years ago at May 13 11:56
Nice list! AWAKE needs to be added, please. Great show, just got axed!
Posted: 3 years ago at May 13 11:57
I'd add "Bored To Death"...I miss "My Name Is Earl" and "Reaper" too...but "Bored To Death"'s cancellation literally destroyed me! :(((
Posted: 3 years ago at May 13 13:13
Thanks everyone. I will be adding the shows that have been recommended.
Posted: 3 years ago at May 20 12:24
