    Default Cancelled TV shows

    Having just watched the last episode of Alcatraz I am yet again baffled by how often we are left hanging because shows are cancelled at the end of a series.

    Surely if a writer has produced something the would try and finish it?

    Even without a tv series I would happily buy a written version of "series 2" etc (I know writing tv shows is not the same as novels but you can always produce a novella in kindle format)

    Plenty of shows I would have loved to keep watching.

    The Event, Outcasts, Survivors

    Or even a better ending for Lost!

    Stargate Universe (can't believe the cancelled this, I thought it was the best of all the Stargate series), Caprica (ok wasn't the best in the world but had it's moments and had potential), Startrek Enterprise (FFS, was just starting to get good when they wrote a half hearted ending for it and cancelled it).

    we've had this a few times now and I'll no longer watch a show until I know it has been renewed to a second season.

    Although in fairness I think Alkatraz was getting a bit samey every week so to me it wasn't a huge loss. The canned Unforgettable after 1 season too.

    Great theory, unfortunately you then get programs like Startrek Enterprise where they did four series before cancelling it early or Stargate Universe where they did two series...

    I've been checking American tv programme forums and as soon as I'm into a series I know they will cancel ... I stop watching it ... Seems pointless getting involved in something that's not going to last..

    Gave up on Alcatraz 6 weeks ago when they reported it hadn't been renewed for series 2

    I am still watching dexter and Grimm which have been very good... And the last series of Eureka is on so that will leave a void too

    Cancelling Terminator:The Sarah Connor Chronicles was criminal, it was better than the films. Fox were to blame for that, and they also cancelled The Chicago Code - a drama about corrupt politicians paying bent coppers and doing deals with organised crime. I guess Fox was worried it was a case of life imitating art...what with their News International colleagues in the UK paying coppers, bribing politicans and getting into bed with organised crime syndicates....
