    Lost in Space lasted too long IMO. It's first season was good strong SciFi. Then it changed format and went to color. The format change was to compete with Batman (really, look it up... they went camp to get the Batman viewers hooked). As soon as they went to goofy camp humor in place of solid SciFi, it went in the toilet. I wish someone would reboot the series today and do it all serious. No talking carrot people, no space wizards, no giant robot then shrinking back to normal size with Will and Doctor Smith caught inside. And if you must make Doctor Smith a coward, make it an act. He really is brave and smart, he just plays cowardly to keep the family from discovering that he is responsible for their being lost.

But 98.623% of people who watched it think it should have run several more seasons. It should still be on the air in fact. Fox just severely blew it when they cancelled it.

    But then, if they hadn't, we might not have gotten a Whedon avengers... so... what can you do? Just be glad for what you got, I guess.
    I'd put Star Trek TNG well above Firefly any day of the week, even including the mediocre first two seasons. I'm not a Whedon hater, but I'm also on the boat that Firefly really wasn't that great of a series - at least not good enough to justify the borderline cult-ish fans it has. I think part of the reason it keeps getting brought up is because its the martyr for "shows that ended too soon". I kind of think that if Firefly didn't get axed after its first season and had a good 3 or 4 season run people wouldnt shout from the mountains about the show as much as they do now and it would probably be a show that only gets talked about in specific instances (like Farscape).

    ----

    Shows that stayed around too long:
    That 70s Show
    Scrubs

    I'm not willing to throw Simpsons onto that list yet, the show is still decently entertaining to me and it's still better than a good chunk of other comedies on TV.
    Eh, Comics is a pretty cool guy...

    But you should consider that STNG took time to develop into a really strong series. Firefly was strong to begin with and would have only gotten stronger as the cast jelled even more, and as the writing hit it's stride.

    Well, I didn't think Firefly was that strong to begin with. But whatever, opinions man.

    I also felt pushing daisies was thrown in the bad direction. Season 2 was awful then they cancelled it, I just wish they made it better.

    I'll admit I also liked that show "New Amsterdam" about the immortal cop that aired on FOX for a season a few years ago. If SyFy fails to pick up the show "Alphas" for another season that is definitely going on the "ended too soon" list.

    Also gong to add That 70's show as a show that went on too long. It should of ended once Eric left the show and then we wouldn't of been subject to that long haired douche who replaced him and became Donna's bf for a short time.

It consisted of lots and lots of fun but usually poorly developed ideas, which gave the season a rather chaotic feel. Season 7, on the other hand, was just boring, and I've completely lost interest in the show at this point. We'll see if it hits the big 10.
    I couldnt agree more with Supernatural overstaying its welcome. It should have ended in after season 6. Its painful to see how bad it has become compared to the first 5 seasons. When Eric Kripke left it lost its real quality. I have stopped watching it since early season 7.

    Now i can only think of the show as painful memory of thinking please kill it before it ruins the reputation of the first quality 5 seasons.
    Pull List:
    The Walking Dead,Fatale,Near Death,Storm Dogs,Happy,BPRD,XO-Manowar
    American Vampire,Animal Man,Swamp Thing
    Daredevil, Winter Soldier,Indestructible Hulk

    I never felt that. Seasons 4 and 5 were really the extent of the entire angel/heaven/hell story, but I also thought they were the strongest seasons.

    Because it was an entertaining, great looking, well-directed show with fantastic characters and great acting. I also love pulpy sci-fi adventure. That's why I kept watching.

    The lack of a big-picture plan is a weird deal breaker because very few shows have such a thing. That's just the nature of TV storytelling.

    Deadwood ended too soon, it seriously ended like 'Tune in next season to see what happens!"
    But there was no next season.

    I was a huge Quantum Leap fan, got into it when USA ran reruns from 6-8 PM - and in context, him not going home, makes a weird sort of sense

    plus easily one of the best sci fi shows ever put on TV

    I would've liked more Deadwood, but the last season does have a good ending.
