10 TV Shows That Should Have Run Forever
Everyone has a secret bugbear that they carry with them through life. No, I’m not talking about some tragic heartbreak or the knowledge that you once killed a man- I’m talking about a TV show that was cancelled too quickly. There’s almost nothing more devastating than discovering that your favourite TV show has been lost before it’s time, and I’m here to salve your wounds (well, agree with you), and give you some more doomed programmes to obsess over. Any controversy over item five is your own fault. Enjoy!
I mean, because obviously. Joss Whedon’s space western was very probably his finest venture into the land of television-a little more grown-up than Buffy and Angel, a little more focused than Dollhouse, and featuring some barnstorming performances by Nathan Fillion et al as the ragtag crew of hunk o’ junk spaceship Serenity. Very nearly impossible to dislike, Firefly left thousands of fans embittered after it was cancelled after just one season- leaving countless loose ends and a whole universe left to explore. Luckily for them, we did at least get the follow-up movie Serenity, which helped to lay some of the plot points to bed. However, this is definitely the one TV show that you can’t mention to fans without expecting copious tears.
