I've seen bits and pieces of it on youtube. Looked pretty funny.

I don't know how I forgot about it but Delocated was my favorite new show when I discovered it about a year and a half ago. Sadly it only lasted 3 seasons, it actually just ended a few months ago probably why I really forgot about it cause I seriously watched that show multiple times, I loved it that much.

Heres a pretty funny scene from Season 2 when Jon meets his new gf's parents and tells them the story of how they met.

Yeah they should have kept this going. Not only was it funny as hell, but it also developed a decent story, an odd thing for Adult Swim.

Ditto. Some of the creature effects were bad (especially the Sentry) but it was an early 70's show so they went with what was more or less available at the time. Loved that show as a kid and still enjoy watching it from time to time.

This show was brilliant. It really should never have been on Adult Swim, maybe HBO or something. I think it would have done a lot better, but then again HBO seem to get rid of shows left and right. I think the real problem with Delocated was it was on at the worst time. 12am on Sunday. There was just so much more that could have developed for a fourth season. Oh well I guess. I became a huge fan of Jon because of the show. We went to see him do a comedy show with the people from Delocated, that was really funny. Now he's playing a mayor on Parks and Recreation (without the mask) so I have to catch up on that show.

Harsh Realm. Chris Carter came up with this, a pre-Matrix story about, well, the matrix. I felt it was cutting edge for its time but they pulled the plug after nine episodes.
Definitely agree on Harsh Realm. Really fantastic show and no ending to it at all Sad

Chris Carter's other series Millennium definitely deserves mention as it never even got to deal with the actual Millennium (aside from the X-Files episode which was nothing like the show at all.)

Firefly definitely

And there's always Arrested Development which finally got a new season this year

I guess Family Guy counts. It was cancelled after three seasons, but then it was revived in 2005 thanks to DVD sales and very high ratings in reruns.

I was going to mention Millenium. I thought the premise of the show was very interesting. It kind of took the conspiracy idea that X Files developed over several seasons and used it right out of the box. I always thought it was kind of odd that it ended before they could actually deal with the Millenium.

Another show that I enjoyed and lost track of was American Gothic. I'm not sure if they wrapped up all the storylines on that one or not, but only 22 episodes aired.

I realise I'll be in a definite minority here, but both ALCATRAZ and FLASH FORWARD were great (to me and the missus at least) and both ended on real bastad cliff hangers.......

The daughter would probably add the Canadian PRIMEVAL remake too!!!!

Back in the early 90's there was a show on Nickelodeon called Salute Your Shorts that was canceled after only two seasons.

That's about the average life span of a Nickelodeon show, though. As soon as the show's initial target audience grows up and stops watching, they kill it and replace it with something to hook the next batch of kids.

Yeah, that's most likely true. With the exception of Double Dare, All That and some of the cartoons.

Nowhere Man was definitely a HUGE disappointment, I loved that show. Still need to get the DVD and see the "final" episode.

A few that I enjoyed and should have been longer/more episodes from years past, Its Your Move, Parker Lewis Can't Lose, Pete and Pete, Amazing Stories, Eerie Indiana and the Zappa family sitcom Normal Life.
