John Doe was awesome. A great show before shows like Monk and Psyche.

Ahem... I think you mean Dead Like Me.
Sir, you are correct.

I'd all but forgotten about American Gothic. Loved that show.

Re: Top 10 Brilliant But Canceled

I'm limiting my list SF&F shows (obviously) that lasted less then three seasons (so no Farscape and Angel).
Anyway, here are my top five:
- Firefly
- Wonderfalls
- Dead Like Me
- Surface
- Blade

Like you and Temis, that's why I didn't list Farscape myself. It was canceled, and we would have seen more in that fifth season than just what we saw in "The Peacekeeper Wars". Yet the series did last a full four seasons, which seems to move it out of the same category as what most of us are discussing.

Re: Top 10 Brilliant But Canceled

Here's one...

Total Recall 2070 - Hulu

Total Recall 2070 - Wikipedia

Let's hope The Middleman doesn't get added to the list!

I was wondering if anyone was going to mention "Secret Adventures..."

I'll add "Space Rangers", CBS, mid-90s, IIRC.

Re: Top 10 Brilliant But Canceled

Well...since I can't mention Farscape...here's how my list would go:

1) Firefly: excellent!
2) Wonderfalls: wacky, fun, and wonderful.
3) Dead Like Me: Quirky & fun.
4) Journeyman: Well written show. I really thought it was going to last..
5) Crusade: This wasn't given a chance at all.
6) Joan of Arcadia: Seeing this on Sci-Fi has reminded me of how much I miss it.
7) Nowhere Man: The conspiracy in this might have been even better then X-Files.
8) Jericho: Well written. Really good show.
9) Strange Luck: Fun show. Wish we could've seen that XFiles crossover...
10) Invasion: This show with Lost was such a great lineup!

Honorable mentions: Surface, The Dresden Files, Brisco County Jr, Tru Calling, V.R. 5, John Doe, Early Edition, and much, much more! lol.
