Express Yourself: Cancelled/Retired TV Shows

The Express Yourself Weekly Meme is hosted by Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests.

The prompt for this week is: Name ONE cancelled/retired TV show you'd love to see back on with new episodes.

Though there are a lot of shows that I could list, there is only one that declared itself loudly in my mind the moment I read this prompt.

Firefly was never given a fair chance.  The massive fan base it developed immediately following cancellation proves that the show deserved a longer run than it got.  I love the story, the characters, and there are so many unanswered questions that it could drive a person crazy.  One season was not enough, and although the movie Serenity is completely awesome and I'm glad it exists, I still want more.

Before I go, I'd like to take a moment to pay my respects to Tina Downey.  Tina, though you may be gone, you will be always be a part of our blogging community.  Thank you for brightening our lives with your optimistic nature.


  1. I so agree with you about Firefly - Serenity was definitely not *enough*. I'm not sure they could ever give us enough. But at least we can re-watch the series & the movie over and over and never get sick of it!

    I was so sad to hear about Tina Downey, though I didn't know her very well at all. She was a good friend to many in this community.

  2. That would be my pick!
    Still can[t believe she's gone.

  3. Ah, Firefly, you left us too soon. It was a beautiful mix of western, steampunk, space opera, and comedy, wasn't it? I meet people from time to time who have never seen it and do my best to turn them into fans. A shame about Tina, thank you for putting up the link to her blog.

  4. Firefly! You're so right... one season wasn't enough. :(
