Default Re: Top Ten Short-Lived TV Series

Great idea for a top ten! I can't think of ten right now, but I'd agree with both Firefly and Dark Skies, and would add:

Space: Above and Beyond (1995-1996), which wasn't perfect but had some interesting characters and real potential.

Heat of the Sun from 1998 starring Trevor Eve as a policeman in thirties Kenya.

Lillies (2007) which I think looked too Catherine Cookson-ish to appeal to a wide audience, but was wonderful and funny and ten times better than Call the Midwife.

Life (2007-2009) with Damian Lewis.

And if Col is going to pick Bugs (!) then I'm going to go for:

Outcasts (2011) which I was actually beginning to really enjoy by the end.
