CHIPs the one with Ponch and Jon?
Ya of course I remember CHIPS!
I also remember Emergency 51....

I agree with Firefly and Eli Stone -- though the quality of Eli wasn't as good most of the second season. I'll add Studio 60 of the Sunset Strip and Sports Night -- Sorkin is a master.
I came into this thread with one thing in mind... post about Life. (i see you beat me to it)
one of the BEST cancelled shows of ALL-TIME
Arrested Development and Firefly are two of my all time favorite shows. Others that got cancelled too soon: Better Off Ted, The IT Crowd, Caprica, Awake, Spaced, Farscape, Lie to Me, Dollhouse.
The pretender and the profiler were good shows back to back on Saturday nights
I'm guessing you mean Emergency!, which was set in LAFD Station 51. I don't think either of your choices meet the criteria of the OP, which asked for peoples' favorite "short lived" series. And with both CHiPs and Emergency! lasting 6 seasons, it is hard to think of either as short lived.
And those are pretty easy to remember, since I can remember "My Mother the Car" (1965).
We also really liked Terriers and it was only on for one season. But nothing measures up to Firefly.
What a plot! Too bad Sarah Shahi left the show. The first season was magical.
Simon Baker's first US TV series, "The Guardian" was a pretty good one too.
"The Good Guys" was the ultimate buddy cop show. Too over the top for conservative Americans who just didn't get it. Pity.
A long, long time ago. The Rat Patrol.
I used to love it as a kid. A local "dot 2" TV channel shows it on weekdays. Good times!
As per yesterday, Eureka.....gonna miss it!
Eureka has run final episodes before. And it keeps coming back with new episodes.
Except this time Syfy canned them. This final is final.
Like Futurama? :hahaha: j/k
Probably a Good Thing. The show lost something when Max Headroom and the teenage daughter faded from the plot. The show as it is is nice, but I wouldn't wage a campaign to get it back.
So long, and thanks for all the mods to my Crown Vic
The difference is an animated show doesn't have sets that are torn down and destroyed. Chances are everything for an animated show are in a thumbdrive.
For some reason, this led me to think about "Defying Gravity" -- was a great TV show that ran as a summer replacement and ABC didn't support at all. Of course, part of the problem is that it was marketed as "Grey's Anatomy in space".
What reminded me is that there was some hope, prior to the sets being destroyed, that SyFy or another cable channel would pick it up.
Don't be silly. Futurama is stored safely in year 3000. Everyone knows that...

The Tomorrow People
Talking with my wife tonight I was reminded of two others I don't think have been mentioned, Werewolf (FOX, ran around the time of 21 Jump Street) and Kindred: The Embraced.
Our local channels used to show this late Saturday night. I loved that show
Jay Mohr's show "Gary Unmarried".
I would strongly recommend Lie to Me, which was definitely canceled prematurely. It's on Netflix.
