Favourite Cancelled Series

We've all been there - you're watching a show you've loved from the first episode, not everyone you know watches it, but that's okay, it'll just be for you then BAM... it's cancelled.

So, what series were people watching when the rug was pulled from under them? Did it even make it to the fated number of 13 episodes? What would you fight to bring back if concerns like budget, actors aging, etc, didn't matter?

Straight off the bat, the three series I would've saved are Enterprise, Firefly and That 80s Show.

What series would you cancel if it meant yours could be revived? (It doesn't matter what network, it's dead man's boots - one show out, one show in).

It'll be interesting to see what comes up... we're not short of cancelled series these days

G vs. E (aka Good vs. Evil)

I would get rid of any of the Stargate stuff they've done since if it would mean resurrecting that show. (Never could summon up any interest in Stargate.)

What, you mean besides Star Trek?

This is still a Star Trek board, isn't it?

I would've loved Angel and Firefly to continue on. However, Angel got a fair run.
