The Fades - fantastic but canned

Heroes - ok it got a bit silly in the last series but canned - no warning

Flashforward - really good, but canned

Alcatraz - canned, I wanted to know what, how and why!

So bloody frustrating.

Oh and Maximum Bob was brilliant but got canned very quickly. Never to be brought out on dvd either sad

Carnivale was one for me. That was one show that needed to be seen through.

Also devestated that My So-Called Life was only one season.

I second bbc survivors I loved it. Would have settled for a one off just to see how they wrapped it up - -and to see max beesley all brooding --

Still fed up that they cancelled Survivors after 2 series, on a cliff hanger too. And in its place they made another apocolipse drama that was crap and only lasted one series.

Does anyone know if supernatural has been cancelled?

I liked Men in Trees, Anne Heche comedy in Alaska.

I can't believe they've cancelled Spartacus. My dd is devastated that they'll be no more icarly and victorious ( I think that's what it's called).

Firefly too. It was going to be so good.sad

TheSmallPrint Thu 14-Feb-13 21:06:16

Being Human has been binned now too. I'm proper gutted. sad

Firefly - I don't think I will ever get over it.

FoofFighter Wed 13-Feb-13 13:40:06

Ahh Pushing Daisies - very quirky but I really liked it smile

Yes, I now remember watching first episodes of the Fades, it was really good, - you can get the episodes on iplayer and I wonder whether it is worth rewatching now knowing we will be left in the lurch. There really isnt much worth watching at the moment, so have been rewatching all the Die Hards being shown prior to the new film coming out on Saturday.

Does anyone remember Bodies? I thought that was brilliantly written, was it Jed Mercurio? and well acted, and I never saw the final episode of that either ( and you can't get it on iplayersad)

When I saw this thread I immediately thought of the Fades. Torchwood too, which gives me the arse after they had to whore it out to the US to get it made last time, yet they waste licence fee in utter shite <vair cross>

DevlinMaccabee Wed 13-Feb-13 07:38:29

Pushing Daisies got cancelled too, just as I was startling to get into it - typical

cocolepew Tue 12-Feb-13 21:45:57

Boomtown from a few years ago was brilliant, then it disappeared too.

And why did Sky stop showing Rescue Me?

cocolepew Tue 12-Feb-13 21:44:49

I miss Prime Suspect USA, one bloody series and it was cancelled.

TeamEdward Tue 12-Feb-13 21:44:45

I was gutted when Pan-Am got cancelled.

I'm wondering how long Nashville will last because I enjoyed the first episode, so it's bound to be shelved

PoppyWearer Tue 12-Feb-13 21:42:13

My DH watches most of these, he is definitely a curse!

Every time I get hooked on some American drama it gets cancelled. Boo. I too hope Hero and the cheerleader keep safe. Loved the hour too. hmm

Darkesteyes Tue 12-Feb-13 21:24:31

Theyve cancelled The Hour? nooooooooo

gimmecakeandcandy Tue 12-Feb-13 20:17:21

Heroes deserves a film. Sylar was such a character.

gimmecakeandcandy Tue 12-Feb-13 20:16:53

The Fades was brilliant - one of the best things I've seen. Such a shame it was cancelled sad

wintera Tue 12-Feb-13 19:13:45

Oh ffs, I'd only just got into The hour as well. Started watching it during the second series and really loved it. Its me, I'm a jinx obviously!

Stila Tue 12-Feb-13 18:50:10

Re Fades - They couldn't afford both and now BH has been cancelled so BBC 3 can concentrate on 'new and innovative ' programmes about bridezillas , people with too much fake tan and not enough clothes and teens getting drunk on holidays hmm

CelticPromise Tue 12-Feb-13 18:23:27

And now The Hour

<sob>
