    Great television series that got canceled too soon......

    I just rented the tv series The 4400 recently and have really enjoyed it (just finished watching episode 5). I remember when it was on, but never got the chance to check it out.

    Anyways, it made me think of some other shows that I liked that got canceled after only a season, maybe two. Here are a few of my favorites, what are some of yours?

    Jericho - still hearing rumors of a possible movie.
    Invasion - a series that started off well ratings-wise, but was completely mismanaged, IMO.
    Firefly - I love science-fiction, great writing, great acting...never get tired of watching.

    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Completey agreed Arrested Development and Freaks and Geeks.

    I'll add Clerks: The Animated Series, Mission Hill, and The Critic as well.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    "On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."

    Definitely with you on "Jericho". We were LOVING that show and couldn't wait for the next episode. Almost as good as "Lost". The way they ended it was very lame. There was Internet rumor that another SciFi would pick it up and continue the story, but I don't guess that's going to happen.

    Also, Fox had a series called "Point Pleasant" two or three years ago that was great, but it got canceled and ended abruptly. Again, heard that another "minor" network may pick it up, but that never happened.

    Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.

    Lucky Louis on HBO starring Louis CK.

    And I'll toss Ali G out there as well.. There was a while there where sasha Cohen wasn't out of the bag.

    Austin Stories on MTV. Late 90's, I think it only ran for about 10 episodes, but it was hilarious. It was probably a little too clever considering the direction MTV has gone since then.

    In recent years, "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" comes to mind.
    "Hey...Dad. Wanna Have A Catch?" Kevin Costner in "Field Of Dreams."
