    The short life span of the this particular new series was a crime against humanity. And I blame Cartoon Network for dropping the ball here.

    Blade came on Wednesday nights.But that's neither here nor there now.

    Yeah, I was the prime advocate against ints creation, as I didn't think it would be gory enough, and that Sticky Fingaz couldn't possibly be any good as Blade. But while he was nothing compared to Snipes, he was good in the role given the context. And the action improved over the course of the series. The stories were well-developed, and every now and then, you saw a chick's nekkid booty! Bad move on Spike's part. What have they got going for them now?

    I miss it. (imagine Tobias in his cutoffs crying in a shower, and that is how I feel.)

    You know, it's funny. Arrested Development was canceled, but it was one of the shows Fox actually tried to push forward. Unlike Futurama (which was canned because it got pre-empted by sporting events) or Firefly (I never once saw a promo that said what day or time that came on. It was always "this week on Fox"), Arrested Development was given a Simpsons lead-in, promoted like hell, and was given multiple chances to gain viewers. It got Fox an Emmy, so they tried their damnedest to keep it on the air. If Fox was only looking at the ratings, they would've given Arrested Development the boot after the first season. It got 3 seasons because Fox kept throwing fans a bone. They wanted it to reach its potential.

    But it never gathered a significant audience-- at least not as far as the outdated Nielsen ratings system could tell.

    Probably would've been a dynamo on cable, though.

    Sailor Moon, only in the UK, FOX Kids never showed S or SuperS, but there's no hope - before this contract could be renewed, Toei revoked it, so there's no chance.

    Dragonball GT missed the ball on plenty of potential feasible sagas...and stories

    Visionaries only lasted 13 eps, it had WAY more potential...

    evolution could have really gone somewhere, all they had to do was up the voilence to the ultimate avengers level and it could have been seriously really good stuff.

    beyond was really good in its first series and part of its second but then it started to slack and i feel that if it carried on, it would have gotten worse. I like how they left it. The only thing i would have done was to make terry's lil brother batman's son instead of terry. so there was a definite future there, Heck even have him as a Robin beyond. that would have made me orgasm everywhere but it's alright as it is.

    Ring raiders i also felt could have gone somewhere.

    I'm bumping the **** out of this thread.

    Jack and Bobby. Watched it on youtube recently. Forgot how good it was. Such a well-written and acted show, The WB should've been ashamed of themselves for letting it go and keeping utter **** like 7th Heaven on.

    I really enjoyed 'Journeyman'. It was building up a really good story arc and creating a mythology around past time travellers.

    Shame it was cancelled. Bad timing with the writers' strike, I think.
