The TV Challenge Continues…
Canceling or Not. What show(s) would you cancel without a moment’s hesitation? Is there a show (previously canceled or just no longer airing) that you’d bring back, original cast and all?
I’ve had several favorite shows that were mercilessly canceled but that have been brought back.
Futurama was canceled by Fox and then brought back first by Cartoon Network and then by Comedy Central. Torchwood will soon have its second sequel series. Firefly returned in the form of a feature film. Even Farscape got a made-for-TV movie to wrap up its loose ends.
So, what abruptly-terminated shows would I want to bring closure to?
- Sym-Bionic Titan
… because the obvious story would have been for Titan and the Galactic Guardian Group to join forces and free Galiluna from the Mutradi, and I would have liked to have seen that.
- The Big O
… because even though the manga had a slightly different story with a better sense of closure, I still sometimes wonder what the deal was with the city, and the amnesia, and the robots, and whether we actually witnessed a literal Big Reset Button being pushed at the end.
…because I thought the premise was slightly clever: what if biological viruses behaved like computer viruses, and vice-versa?
And for those of you that demand I choose something that is both not animated and doesn’t involve any sort of robots, androids, automatons, or mechanical men…
