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."

OnlyxCobra17

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."

thedean246

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."

rntopspin100

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!


Adults Explain Which Things Every Teenager Should Know

We often look back on our teenage years with mixed emotions.

Our final years where we could enjoy our youth, and live largely without responsibility and just enjoy being a child and all that came with it.

Of course, we might also look back on things we did as teenagers which we are less than proud of today.

Or things we wish someone had told us, so that we may have avoided falling into those unhappy situations.

We all pretended to be sick at least once when we were children to get out of going to school to avoid a test, game, or assembly we'd been dreading.

Some people still might not have given up the habit of feigning illness, as a means of avoiding work or other occasions that they are less than eager to attend.

Sometimes, simply telling people that you're "sick" is all the information you need to share to get out of it.

Whether or not more concrete proof is needed, others might go a step further in faking their ailment, be it a cold or fever, and often pull off fairly convincing performances.

Sometimes even fooling a doctor.

Every kid has their own strengths and talents. However, in school, some of us are singled out as being ‘gifted.’

This could mean a variety of things, from getting exceptionally good grades to having a unique way of thinking or understanding topics that aren’t seen in other students.

Often, when a student is labeled “gifted,” it is assumed they will be successful in later life.

However, Reddit has proven that this is not always the case.

Sometimes gifted students are successful but to a normal degree. They have the same careers and achievements as students who weren't labeled gifted. Other times, these students are not successful at all and being labeled “gifted” ended up damaging.

Non-disclosure agreements, or NDAs, are legally binding contracts that establish confidential relationships.

For most people, it’s not a big deal. NDAs are often signed at the start or end of an employment opportunity or during a sale of a product or technology you own. They mainly protect creative, business, or intellectual properties.

However, another function of NDAs is to guarantee silence on more high profile or nefarious events. For example, Stormy Daniels was asked to sign an NDA so that events that transpired between her and former president, Donald Trump, would be kept a secret. In most cases like these, the person who signs the NDA also gets a sum of money for their cooperation.

In these cases, the reason for the NDA is usually wild.
