QUITE RELATED:

The Uchikoshi localization panel is running now.

Fans asking questions about the Zero Escape games. The video is lagged as crap but the audio is what you want and that has been fairly good.

Firefly is an obvious one that was taken off the air way too soon, after, what, 14 episodes only?  "I aim to misbehave."

Another obvious one for folks around my age was Freaks and Geeks when it first came out- it was canceled after 12 episodes but fan-campaigning led to the network eventually airing the remaining 3.

When I saw the topic those were the first two that came to my mind.

There was a spin-off to Battlestar Galactica called "Caprica" that I wish would've at least had a second season to resolve the plot it was building. 19 eps, didn't fare as well as syfy wanted, BOOM cancelled.

4th of July good.  I read over my two audiobook manuscripts since I'm heading into the studio tomorrow to work on them. 

And like a good American, I watched sports: I watched the first day of le Tour de France (Team BMC has the yellow jersey!  My road bike is a BMC so I like team BMC) and the 3rd place FIFA womens' world cup match.  England beat Germany 1-0, but I think the penalty kick England got was based on a bullshit call.  Tomorrow, it's the world cup final, USA vs. Japan.  Amazing how the men's US soccer team is seen as a joke yet the women's US soccer team is one of the best in the world.  I'll probably miss the world cup final due to being in the studio, but that's okay.  Priorities, man.

Hmm was just going through the wiki. I now want to replay both of the games before the third game comes out. Also in reviewing the wiki, I am reminded that we basically know half the cast for game three already. Klutz do not read as I am going to be going into some major VLR spoilers here.

Code:
We know that Sigma and Phi are both going to be participating in the events of the game. Further we know that Diana (aka person Luna is apparently based on) is there as well. K also apparently travelled back in time to join the mission. So that's four right there, plus someone from Free the Soul who will probably be either Brother or another clone of Left. Junpei is involved in the events as well, although he isn't at the Mars Test Site. The ending implied that Alice and Clover somehow make it back, so they'll probably make appearances. It is now occurring to me that game 3 was probably originally intended to reuse a large number of character assets, to save costs, from VLR based on this set up.

I do have to wonder about some parts of the set up. We know that there are 9 people at the Test Site, but I have to wonder about whether or not Sigma and Phi are among the 9 originally sent there. If they are not, does that mean two are killed so the numbers work out? Either way, reviewing the plot details has made me hyped!

What we really know about the events are the events that happened in the timeline that leads up to VLR.

In other words, the scenario in Zero Escape 3 may swap expected players with people we wouldn't expect. In other words:

Code:
this allows for Alice and/or Clover to enter the game. But it might also allow them to pull out Junpei/Tenmyouji etc

Better Off Ted.

Think: Aperture Science is real, but instead of developing weapons they make consumer goods. It was quite hilarious and didn't really get past it's second season.

Dead Like Me.  Reaper. The Sarah Silverman Program. the sarah connor chronicles. the adventures of brisco county junior. Stargate Universe. The Tick.

that's just off the top of my head.

edit: does arrested development count?  They shit canned it after 3 seasons but did bring it back for a fourth and will probably have another eventually.

That's fantastic news. With Danganronpa's plot having gone down the toilet and still getting junk added to it it's great to see the king of mystery VNs return.

Beat Bloodborne. This game is the Lovecraftian horror game of my dreams. I got the "Secret" ending, and judging from what I've read about the other two, I would call it the best ending.

I had so much fun with this game, even if I have been playing at it in drips and drabs in the past few months. Can't wait for the DLC.

That's what this topic is about: television shows you feel were taken off the air too soon.  Could be any genre: drama, comedy, animated, whatever.  

Firefly is an obvious one that was taken off the air way too soon, after, what, 14 episodes only?  "I aim to misbehave."

Another obvious one for folks around my age was Freaks and Geeks when it first came out- it was canceled after 15 episodes but fan-campaigning led to the network eventually airing the remaining 3.

But the first that came to my mind was the "nu" He-Man (the 2002-2003 one) was nixed too soon.  It never finished its second season (so it's left hanging) and the third season was slated to resolve a huge plot thread.  I understand why it was nixed (slow toy sales and low ratings), but that's really too bad because it was a darn good show.  Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the crap out of cheeseball campy 1980s He-Man (because it's nostalgia and my childhood), but the 2002-2003 He-Man was a very good re-imagining of the concept, had stronger storylines, less camp, and provided much-needed backstories on several characters with much improved character designs.  (on a completely unrelated note, I couldn't quite get into "nu" Thundercats.  Maybe I'll give it another change, but man I was NOT feeling nu Cheetara's design.)  

So, yeah, what television shows do you think were taken off the air too soon?
