    In order of sadness:

    Firefly -- was just starting to get into it late... and it went away. If you don't have the patience for hours and hours of tv dvds (if you can find em) just rent Serenity... and wail and moan with the rest of us.

    Angel -- I admit it, I loved that show and was shocked when it was cancelled. However, it's not at the top of my list because of the incredible way that Joss Whedon (sp?) blew out the series at the end. Instead of tying up all the ends or snipping em off (as was done with Buffy) he left the intrepid protagonists in the heat of the most ferocious battle with evil ever. That's the best way to remember them, doing what we loved to watch for all time...

    Space Above and Beyond -- One of the few sci-fi series ever aired that tries to take a real-life, down and dirty view of the future. Sure there's technology, and they're fighting a war across the galaxy, but at heart, they're the same kind of folks around today.

    I'm gonna skip the cartoon world, because there are too many to mention there... consider this my top list.

    Name one episode thats come out in the last couple years that doesnt A) have a ridiculously stupid story or B) use a celeberity voice. The last episode I  half-saw because my brother was watching it, was Homer gets sent to India to work in their power plant and they worship him as god. How idiotic is that? Any longtime fan of the Simpsons would agree with me.



    I've  been watching the simpsons since it's first episode (I was 11 i think). Bottom line is, the Simpsons still makes me laugh....a lot. That's all that matters to me, I don't care how it happens. The Simpsons is still one of the best shows on TV (Family Guy and Scrubs rule too). It's still witty and uses a lot of timing and play on words. Good stuff.

    Back on topic. I wish they never cancelled Married With Children, Futurama and Arrested Development

    1. Boomtown . I loved that show. The writing was beyond anything I've ever seen on television. The stories were shot and arranged from multiple perspectives; you'd see events unfold from one character's point-of-view, then another's, but you wouldn't really understand what the truth was until you'd seen the final act. The whole show was a testimonial to the fact that rarely is any single person's perception of truth accurate, that every person has their own reality. When the show was cancelled, I stopped watching television altogether for about five months.

    2. Firefly . It's already been mentioned quite a bit, but this show, much like Boomtown, had its own voice. It didn't feel homogenized at all. The stories were complete, the characters were all diverse yet likeable, the setting was intriguing, the theme song was one of the best ever, and the general "feel" of the show just grabbed me. "Serenity" was the first movie I actually went to the theater to see in four years (normally I just rent DVDs).

    Everytime a show like either of these get cancelled, I find myself getting more and more cynical. Ratings are what ultimately determine any show's success or failure, and mainstream America either didn't grasp or didn't like either of these programs enough to watch. And yet, "American Idol" is a cultural phenomenon. Some days I just want to stay in bed in and groan at the absurdity of it all.
