The graveyard of great TV shows that were killed off before their time. Over and Over again, many really good shows were killed prior to their full fruition due to those damn things called ratings. Here is but a small list that fits into our bill-of-fair Cult standing. Please vote on your favorite TV series that maybe lasted one season or less.

Tough call here - Gotta say Ellery Queen with Brisco & Ghost Story bring up a close second. Of course - I've never seen a prisioner that I could sight, so I have to go with my strong points.

I haven't seen any of these. Surprise surprise.

Hopefully I am going to pick up "The Prisoner" soon, and check that out.

For now, I am going with the unlisted Harsh Realm.

Another one was "Nowhere Man", that was decent.

I've never seen any of the shows listed, so I went with "Other":

Push, Nevada, with Wolf Lake second.

Yeah, thats a crock of shite that Journeyman got cancelled.
If there are any new shows coming out that are even remotely worth a watch, then they better be coming on cable. Thats about all I can say.

This has been the worst year that I can ever remember for intelligent programming being cancelled.

So difficult to choose! Had to go with The Prisoner ("I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered. My life is my own") but Brisco also has a special place in my heart.

Gotta love Bruce F'N Campbell as a bounty hunter. He's currently on "Burn Notice," which I hear NBC will be taking from USA Network.
