    What's your favorite short lived canceled TV show?

    I'll start off with three. All are on Netflix streaming, check them out!

    Eli Stone: More of a dramedy, but this show had SO much heart. Every episode had one of those feel good moments. So sad it was canceled after 2 seasons.

    Life: Ony 2 seasons. Damian Lewis as a cop who found Zen while in prison partnered with Sarah Shahi who has a past of her own. Great rapport between the two mains, and just great episodic TV with progressive underlying stories.

    Better Off Ted: Only 2 seasons. Comedy about corporate America that was so much funnier than the Office ever tried to be. I never knew Portia de Rossi could be so funny (I never watched AD).

    I started that but quit after 3 or 4 episodes. Might have to finish it out on the web someday.

    There have been quite a few I liked a lot, Firefly, SU2, Greg The Bunny, Drive & Alien Nation (funny, they're all Fox shows). I think the one I miss the most would be Alien Nation followed closely by Firefly.

    Firefly being canceled was criminal. I also liked Dark Angel, especially the first season.

    Hell yes on Firefly. Too early for it's time. It would be a hit now

    Anyone remember The Pretender or Pushing Daisies? Those are a couple shows off the top of my head that I miss.

    +3 on firefly, just watched serenity, so depressing, that show had sooo much potential. Somebody get Castle canceled! Also, the river, the finder, house - technically ended, not cancelled, but still. The death of the stargate series including sgu. Man TV sucks now:(

    I enjoyed Mercy and Trauma, and was sad to see them cancelled. Wish NBC would have given them more of a chance.

    The Shield was my favorite and I hated to see it go, but it had run its course. And the ending was fantastic.

    Journeyman....it was a great show and very interesting!

    Unfortunately NBC killed it before it had a chance to get popular

    If I remember correctly, didn't it croak because of the writers strike like Heroes did?
