    They canceled Chase :(
    It's a little annoying now, to see a show advertised, you settle in to it, perhaps really enjoy it - then halfway through your channel's run, you discover it wasn't renewed. It's like Trauma all over again. Sigh.
    There are a good many shows that don't have threads, some that probably may not deserve them, and some that just get finished before the thread appears. Could post about them, here.

    I thought it was a shame Chicago Code got cancelled, other than that I can't think of anything new that was axed bothered me.

    What was the deal with Carnivale? Upto S202, it's very good. I know it ceases at S212 but I'm reluctant to google it as I don't want any spoilers. So, err, no spoilers please!

    Carnivale was cancelled by HBO at the end of the second season. The producers can't take it to another network because HBO owns the plot and characters.

    Yeah, I know Carnivale is long dead, just wondered if there was a reason for the swift demise beyond poor viewing figures.

    I can't believe they cancelled Lie to Me. That series was brilliant.

    The Event. :/ I hated it at first but it grew on me, I really wanted to see where it was going.

    The Chase is the one with the blonde female cop, isn't it? If so, I am not surprised at all it didn't last more than a season. I saw a trailer for it and it just looked so generic and unoriginal.

    Rubicon. Tt's very annoying that zombies yeeaarrgghhhhh can get renewed on the same channel (AMC) but intelligent drama is left on the shelf. Sometimes series should be given a chance to pick up some steam through critical acclaim and word of mouth, the trend nowadays seems to be that if its not an instant hit then it gets canned, is short-sighted.

    The Chicago Code also wasn't a generic cop show and had some interesting ideas and mileage, but apparently not interesting enough to be renewed.

    I'm sure I don;t even have to mention Firefly, but I just have :)

    That and the fact that HBO felt the cost per episode was too much and were not willing to pay it any longer.

    That'd make sense. Watching it at the mo on Sky Atlantic HD, quite spectacular looking programme.

    i watched the first 2 episodes of chase on anytime and you could hear them sharpening the axe, the show was a bit shit and it had next to no direction beyond constantly running around and chasing their own asses. All of the characters were boring and wooden. I googled to see if it picked up and was worth pursuing and they were already giving it mini breaks and moving it around the schedule.

    lie to me never really changed its formula and it stagnated, we stopped watching after season 2. they did try to change it up but it was too late and it had haemorrhaged its viewers

    Of all the shows that got shit-canned I think Chicago Code is the real crime as it hooked me from the very first episode. It could've got some decent mileage with some brilliant story arcs but they really didn't give it a chance. Story was really interesting, shot in some great locations in chicago with some brilliant camera work. what a waste

    Itís starting to create a bit of a catch 22, whereby Iím extremely reluctant to start watching something new in case I get into it and it gets canceled, but then that very attitude contributes to it being canceled.

    Freaks and Geeks. A decent American high school comedy starring loads of people who moved on to bigger things when they grew up. Watched it recently and its not bad.

    Don't know about anyone else but I really enjoyed Human Target, thought it was a shame it got knocked on the head.

    fficial&client=firefox-a" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Americanism, then. I must have taken too much notice of a spell-check result.

    As for Chase, I wasn't going to watch it, until I found out it was about the US Marshals and then I thought perhaps it's a new premise so maybe worth a look. The first episode wasn't great, but I gave it another and it turned out to be good fun. I like the way they put in a competitive bounty hunter against Annie, so things aren't usually straightforward as they pursue fugitives.

    I really enjoyed defying gravity. Also gutted Eli Stone has finished though it had three series but ended poorly.
