TV shows that ended too soon : Summer Glau listed twice

POSTED BY chrisdvanne ON Dec 19, 2011 / 3 COMMENTS



Student newspaper "The Collegian" made an arbitrary list of TV shows for which the end came too soon

Noteworthy shows often spawn loyal fan-bases that demand feature films or spin offs to wrap up cliffhangers. Sometimes, like in the case of the America-as-a-nuclear-wasteland science fiction hit "Jericho,” the executives listen to the fans and revive the classics.Other times the executives don’t listen, so longtime fans are forced to watch reruns of past shows that were cancelled before their prime. There are five shows in particular that would be at the top of my Christmas wish list if I was asking Santa Clause to bring back TV series next fall.


Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles

Terminator : The Sarah Connor Chronicles - Promo Poster.

The Terminator films have been some of the highest rated and most quoted films of the last several decades. Unlike the films themselves, Josh Friedman’s explosively original and quite realistic show, "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” will not be back.

In the series, Sarah Connor (Lena Headey) begins her journey to stop the robot initiated Armageddon, training her son John to eventually lead the human resistance against its mechanical overlords.

With the help of a time-traveling cyborg, Cameron (Summer Glau), Connor attempts to destroy the company that will ultimately create an army of robots to take over the world. The journey takes the group across the country, where they fight seemingly immortal Terminators, humanoid autonomous robots, from the future and government agents from the present who think Connor is crazy.

The accuracy present in the lore of the Terminator series is quite nostalgic, especially for a person who grew up watching the original Terminator films. The best thing about the television series was the retelling of Sarah Connor’s story and her relationship with her son.

Alas, the show was cancelled after its second season, which did not allow the series to properly advance the canon of the Terminator series and left an empty hole in the hearts of many viewers who wanted to see the outcome of Connor’s story.

Let’s hope one day the network executives announce, "The show will be back (with more episodes).”



 Firefly  

Firefly - Promo Poster.


"Firefly,” the brilliant science fiction show from writer and director Joss Whedon of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” combines everything amazing about Star Wars and jam-packs it into 14 episodes of space opera/Western-themed perfection. The show, set in 2517 after humans arrive in a new solar system, revolves around a crew of smugglers on board their spaceship who were on the losing side of a civil war and must eek out their living in the pioneering culture on the frontiers of civilized space.

The crew, helmed by Captain Malcolm Reynolds (Nathan Fillion), struggles to survive in a universe controlled by a central government known as the Alliance, presented by Whedon as an amalgam of American and Chinese culture.

The largest draw for me was the way the cast so perfectly meshed together. The characters’ on-screen chemistry was only hampered by their underdeveloped personalities, which are accounted for by the show’s short life span of 11 aired episodes out of its 14 total episodes.

A dedicated cult fan-base generated enough DVD sales and positive reception to warrant novels, comics, a role-playing game and a feature-length film, but many fans just want to see the television series return.

The three other tv shows listed by Justin M. Nguyen for The Collegian are The Tick (FOX), Arrested Development (FOX) and Pushing Daisies (ABC).

I don't think he understood what TSCC was all about. This seems exactly like the standard reaction of people who didn't get it( and thus they most likely never got past season 1 BTW wink )

They cling too much to the movies and cannon and they never find out the beauty of the series.

Thats most likely the reason why TSCC got cancelled. That damn "Terminator" in its title.

Still, at least the article writer believes those who were able to understand it and praises it nonetheless. So I obviously hold no grudges against him/her smile

Obviously I don't share this opinion at all, to each his own as you'd say in English but then don't state it as a fact.

When i first read the article, it occured to me that the author did not watched the serie (or at least missed a lot of things) because he's making constant references to canons from the Terminator franchise.
However, since the article is supporting the show, i don't blame him.

Lol! Thats true that it shares many things with SW if you observe it closely. The carbonite Han Solo on set proves the connection too. biggrin
