People Confess Which TV Show Cancellations Hurt The Most

To this day, I get sad when I think of the show Freaks and Geeks and how it was unfairly canceled. Have you seen it? If not, you totally should. Many of the people on the show became huge stars.

Seth Rogen? Linda Cardellini? James Franco? That whole cast is a who's who of great talent. Oh, and the writing? Excellent. It's a show that's funny and has pathos.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor me_rebirth asked the online community,

"Which TV show cancelation are you still frustrated about?"

Happy Endings

"Happy Endings. Canceled due to low views, but that was a result of changing around its timeslots, not viewers no longer having interest."

This would be a good choice for Netflix or Hulu to bring back!

Almost Human

"Almost Human, it had such potential and never even finished its first season."

TheEnigmaShew-xbox

Shown out of order, on Fox which even then had a very poor track record for sci-fi shows!

Infinity Train

"Infinity Train. Very upset to see that canceled. It was such a cool and unique show. I remember reading about all the stuff the creator had planned for the future of the show and seemed like he was really passionate about it and had a lot of story to tell."

Not only did it get cancelled due to being "too dark" for children, it also is being wiped out everywhere. It’s sad to see such a good cartoon go.

Arrested Development

"I know they eventually brought it back but Arrested Development should never have been cancelled. New seasons weren’t the same IMO."

Reggaemylilis89

You are correct. It wasn't the same. The first three seasons are pretty impeccable.

Carnivale

"Carnivale. Never got over that one."

This show was so good! Such a shame.

Rome

"Rome. It was cancelled after two seasons because the production costs were too high."

This is a show that could have easily gone on for at least a couple more seasons. It was fascinating to watch.

Deadwood

"Deadwood. I know they were not following history exactly, but the real town of Deadwood burned the next year. That would have made a great story arc for season 4."

10per

I remember reading this and I think it would have been pretty awesome.

The 4400

"The 4400 (From 2004, not the horrible remake of sorts from last year). At a time when Heroes was dropping the ball in season two, The 4400 kept killing it. And then got cancelled because of the Writers Guild strike."

SuperGAAR

Ah, the strike. Killed off a lot of good television but nothing as pathetically as Heroes. We are all still salty about Heroes all these years later.

Dark Matter

"Dark Matter. The worst part is they actually seemed to have a plan, and things were just heating up. The cliffhanger they ended on haunts me."

[deleted]

I scrolled so far to find this! Netflix had the gall to add a cancelled show to its catalog and now I have to live with the fact that I'll never see the ending!

Mindhunter

"I really want the third season of Mindhunter."

Mister_Judas

Don't we all? Sigh. What a cliffhanger.

Canceled TV shows hurt, okay? Speaking of which, I am still very much annoyed about Better Off Ted getting knocked off. Veronica's monologue about being a murderous fawn with a machine gun still cracks me up all these years later.

Have some shows that come to mind? Feel free to tell us more in the comments below!

Why are men, particularly straight men, so adverse to trying new life things that go against their norm?

Like things women do.

Do men have a beauty regime?

You should.

Do you have regular mental health checks?

You should.

Do you and your friends talk about your feelings?

You REALLY should.

Men can learn so much from the daily aspects of a woman's life.

The reason why some single people are unable to find love can be loosely attributed to either one of the following.

Person A might be difficult or overbearing and can potentially scare off certain people.

Or, Person B might be really picky and refuses to make compromises once they start a new relationship.

For the latter individual, it can be an idiosyncratic thing about the other person that can be enough to be a turn-off.

Sometimes adulting is incredibly hard, especially when we're going through a trying time or are struggling with our health or mental health.

These pieces of advice may seem simple on the surface, but especially during the hard times, they could create a meaningful change for someone.

It's understandable why so many people are afraid of the dark.

There is no clear sight ahead, no telling who might be around, not to mention being even more attuned to every sound you hear in your periphery.

There's simply no telling what may happen to you when you're out alone in the dark.

Unfortunately, nothing can stop the same things from happening to you in broad daylight.

Indeed, the most terrifying things many people ever experienced happened when the sun was shining high.
