    Idk if anyone has said this yet or not but Life on Mars was my favorite show, didn't last. It didn't help that they moved the time slot and the day it aired, and just stopped showing it for like a month. Awesome show though...

    Liked all these and was really irritated when Space: was canceled , but they had really written themselves in a corner right at the last.

    Unfortunately they brought it back as a direct to DVD movie that not only lost two major characters it turned the rest of them into idiots

    I was a fan of that show as well (looking for the BBC version right now). However, the show was doomed from the start, as it had a literal ending - though I wonder if it would have gone longer (the ending "pushed back") had the show received better ratings.

    The New Show with Buck Henry and Dave Thomas. NBC gave it five episodes.

    Anyone ever see the Dana Carvey show? I've heard different things. It featured Steve Carrell and Stephen Colbert. Dave Chappelle was a staff writer. How can that not be funny?

    I wasn't a fan of the ending. They could always bring it back by showing him wake up from a weird dream, or something. I was pretty disappointed with the cancellation of it though, very interesting show IMO

    Sifl and Olly...much too smart for the typical MTV audience. If only "Adult Swim" had existed back then...

    Does anybody remember Homefront? It's not available anywhere, and I'd be curious to see if it's as good as I remember it or if it was kind of a soap opera.

    I still miss Sports Night on a regular basis.

    I do not miss my So-Called Life though. I loathed that show in a way I've never loathed any other. I was just about that age, and had a very visceral reaction of, this is what people think of my generation? They just walked around miserable and lame and wanting to feel each other's soft hair. I had no patience for teen angst as a teen.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    I agree. The last five minutes of the final episode were poignant, as "Kevin" told us what happened to all the characters. We learn that his dad would die in only a couple of more years, then we see his dad happily contemplating becoming a grandfather. Then, as music from "The Natural" plays in the background, we learn that Kevin and Winnie didn't finally marry, as Kevin looks back on those days with wonder.

    E-ring...a great military drama with Benjamin Bratt.
    Cane...a Sopranos type drama with Jimmy Smits

    Both only one 13 episode season. A real shame.
