TV Tuesday: One Season Shows

Okay...todays post on TV Tuesday's is about shows that only last one season. I hate when I start watching a show and loving the characters and then it just ends after only ONE SEASON! How awful is that? Yes, pretty terrible...

Two shows that I started to highly enjoy, which were cancelled after one season were The Class and Moonlight.

To honor those shows, here are a couple clips!

The Class



Moonlight




Discussion Time:
Did any of you watch these shows? What were your thoughts?
Also, what other shows that you loved only lasted one season?

I absolutely looooooooooooved Moonlight - I'm still upset they canceled it.

Ruth said...

I was sad to see Moonlight go, I really enjoyed it!

I try to avoid new series because it's so hard to take if they don't make it. I did watch Journeyman and was sorry to see that go as well.

For me, Wonderfalls was a fantastic show. Luckily, it's on DVD so I can watch the episodes whenever I want. It didn't even last a full season and got canceled after 4 episodes were showed.

That's really the only one I can think of cuz I don't watch TV terribly often, and the shows I do watch go on for more than a season.

I saw the second half of the class and have been waiting for it on dvd so I could see the beginning!

I like a lot of cancelled shows including Freaks and Geeks :)

Margay: I am as well. I started missing a lot as the season went on, but I really did start to love it. My mom was quite upset it was canceled as well.

Ruth: Why do all the good ones go? LOL
I get what you mean about avoiding new shows. It really is hard to wonder if a new show you are starting to love will even continue on.

Book chic: I haven't heard of that one...so a dvd of just four shows? Well, I'm glad you get that at least!

I know what you mean. I'm not an extreme tv person either.

Alea: Is it coming out on DVD? I'd love that, but I hope you get to see the beginning at some point!

I thought of Freaks and Geeks when I posted this, but I haven't seen any of the episodes.

Well, a good thing is, I read online that they're looking to put Alex the gorgeous - I mean O'Loughlin - in a new series, so that will be good.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Margay: Yes, I did hear that as well. I hope the show is just as good. And agreed, he's very gorgeous. ;-)

Alea said...

I hope they release the class on dvd but I've never seen anything about it so far! I also liked Wonderfalls...another good one is the show Life As We Know it!

I loved Wonderfalls and I add Firefly to the list. Althought Firefly did get movie.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Shannon: Hmm...haven't heard of that one either!

Alea: That would be nice if they did. I really loved that show.
Oh, Life as We Know It. I enjoyed it a ton as well...and the song at the beginning was great.

Ohhhh...Moonlight looks good. I stopped watching TV in 2008 so that I could read more. You give me something to look forward to in 2009...lol!

Shooting Stars Mag said...

J.Kaye: There really isn't a lot of great shows on these days. Alas, Moonlight was on last year and only lasted the one season...I blame the writer's strike. I think it confused people and nobody knew when episodes were on, so it didn't do as well...it seemed to be doing great in the beginning!

No, it was a mid-season replacement with 13 episodes that were filmed and everything, but FOX canned it after running 4 episodes because of low ratings (mainly due to the fact that they kept moving it around to different timeslots). I only caught it once or twice cuz I was usually at Stage Crew when they'd show it.

But the DVD set includes all 13 episodes, 6 commentaries featuring cast and creators/producers, two featurettes, and a music video. So very good DVD set for something that was canceled so quickly.

For Firefly, I only saw bits and pieces of it cuz my college roomie LOVED that show and had the DVD set and would watch it a lot, lol. I think that was actually another canceled FOX show too.

Shooting Stars Mag said...

Book Chic: Oh, I get what you mean. That is a sweet DVD for something they didn't even show all of on TV. Very nice. That's a bummer they kept switching it around...that would not help the ratings. All their fault on that one.

I loved Moonlight! I can't believe they canceled! I was happy that Bionic Woman was canceled. That show was horrible.
