John Doe was awesome. A great show before shows like Monk and Psyche.
Sir, you are correct.
I'd all but forgotten about American Gothic. Loved that show.
S2 fell off a cliff. I wasn't sad to see it go.
DOH! Forgot about Tru Calling...
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:
- Dead Like Me
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.
Total Recall 2070 - Hulu
Total Recall 2070 - Wikipedia
Let's hope The Middleman doesn't get added to the list!
Yeah-I'm totally enjoying this one on SCIFI(thank god for dvrs!) and the thought that it will soon end is eating at me...
I was wondering if anyone was going to mention "Secret Adventures..."
I'll add "Space Rangers", CBS, mid-90s, IIRC.
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.
I hope it at least got a proper wrap-up.
Yeah, Jules Verne was a geat series it's a shame it only lasted one season.
Admittedly, not all of these are brilliant, but I miss them:
Brisco County, Jr.
Joan of Arcadia
Justice League Unlimited
Space: Above and Beyond
Spider-Man (MTV Version)
Wonder Woman (because I could have looked at Lynda Carter forever)
Masters of Science Fiction
My top 2 Brilliant but canceled would be
1) John Doe - excellent story. Fox left it hanging
2) Tru Calling - again an excellent story and they canceled it right when it was getting great.
Personally, I was satisfied with the ending. It left things open for a second season but also gave an interesting conclusion.
And I'm also hoping CJ eventually will get a Region 1 DVD release.
