Re: Sci-fi Brilliant but Canceled or little known gems

Another vote for Max Headroom.

Tracker, Adrian Paul's short-lived follow-up to the awesome Highlander.

There were also a couple great miniseries on network:

Brave New World, with Leonard Nimoy as the villain in charge.

Wild Palms, James Belushi in 1993. Which I liked at the time, who knows now.

There was a brief series around the late 90's, a science fiction noire in the vein of Bladerunner, with an android cop as the lead's partner. Anyone remember that? Like Data meets Seven (Pitt, not of Nine).

I like early Mutant X, good guys vs bad guys, and a magnetic Tom McCamus as Mason Eckhart. Can't go wrong with hot chick kung fu.
