Yesterday we saw the news that the fate of NBC’s Constantine is hanging by a thread. Currently, it’s not been cancelled, but is “on hiatus” until more ratings have come in and NBC can see if it’s worth producing a second season.
I’ll freely admit that I am very quick to judge with new TV shows. If the story, characters or even just the general universe hasn’t grabbed me by three episodes in, I’m out. But I haven’t even had a chance to watch Constantine and already it might be another Firefly – which is of course the most famous example of a show that was cancelled too early.
There have been a lot of shows that have gone the Firefly route, some sadly didn’t even get a movie to finish them off. The one that most irks me was Flash Forward. I don’t know a lot of people that watched it, which is part of the problem I guess, but I really enjoyed it. The acting was solid, the premise was good, the story was fascinating and… it ended up being canned. And on one hell of a cliff-hanger ending as well, those jerks. Now I’ll never know what happened!
What else do you think was cancelled too soon?
