Unfairly Cancelled Sci-Fi TV Shows

A Listmania! list by Matt
 
Firefly - The Complete Series [DVD] [2003]
1.  Firefly - The Complete Series [DVD] [2003] DVD ~ Nathan Fillion
The list author says:
  "The mac-daddy of cancelled sci-fi TV, this outstanding sci-fi western had a brilliant cast and great writing. Its unlawful death at the hands of Fox seemed like a deliberate hate campaign."
£9.99   Used & New from: £4.49
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,086 customer reviews) | 14 customer discussions

Space: Above & Beyond [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
2.  Space: Above & Beyond [DVD] [1996] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] 
The list author says:
  "In many ways a precursor to the new Battlestar Galactica, this dark series had intelligence as well as lots of cool space battles. After a big cliffhanger at the end it was never renewed."
Used & New from: £11.98
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (113 customer reviews)

Day Break: The Complete Series [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
3.  Day Break: The Complete Series [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] 
The list author says:
  "Groundhog Day: the TV show. A cop relives the same day over again and must figure out a complex crime and clear his name in just a few hours. The full series was never shown on TV."
Used & New from: £7.38
5.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (6 customer reviews)

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - The Complete First Season [DVD] [2008]
4.  Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles - The Complete First Season [DVD] [2008] DVD ~ Lena Headey
The list author says:
  "Once you get past the weak start this turns into an exciting and enthralling sci-fi show worthy of the Terminator franchise. Only two seasons but it's some of the best SF TV of recent years."
£3.50   Used & New from: £0.29
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (152 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

Jericho - Season 1 [DVD]
5.  Jericho - Season 1 [DVD] DVD ~ Skeet Ulrich
The list author says:
  "A small town tries to survive following a devastating nuclear exchange. A great post-apoc series. Fan outrage (and lots of nuts) bought it back for a short second season."
Used & New from: £2.81
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (56 customer reviews) | 5 customer discussions

Threshold: The Complete Series [DVD] [2005] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]
6.  Threshold: The Complete Series [DVD] [2005] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] 
The list author says:
  "Secretive government agency fights against an alien invasion in the form of insidious terraforming. Decent cast and it had some horror and thriller elements. Never got to complete its full run."
£29.10   Used & New from: £22.44
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Invasion - The Complete Series [DVD]
7.  Invasion - The Complete Series [DVD] DVD ~ William Fichtner
The list author says:
  "A twisty-turny Body Snatchers thriller, it was one of three alien invasion shows (along with Threshold and Surface) that appeared at the same time and were cancelled after one season."
Used & New from: £5.95
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (63 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Surface: The Complete Series [DVD]
8.  Surface: The Complete Series [DVD] DVD ~ Jay R. Ferguson
The list author says:
  "Cheap effects and some irritating cast members, but Surface is still worth watching for its crazy plot about giant sea monsters flooding the Earth. Ends on a gigantic cliffhanger though!"
£10.00   Used & New from: £4.59
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (31 customer reviews)

Eerie Indiana - The Complete Series [DVD]
9.  Eerie Indiana - The Complete Series [DVD] DVD ~ Omri Katz
The list author says:
  "A truly fantastic sci-fi/fantasy series about the odd goings-on in the town of Eerie. It's a kids show adults can appreciate. If there was any justice in the world this would still be going now."
£11.05   Used & New from: £6.99
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (42 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The 4400 Complete Collection: Series 1-4 [DVD]
10.  The 4400 Complete Collection: Series 1-4 [DVD] DVD ~ Jacqueline McKenzie^Joel Gretsch^Patrick Flueger^Conchita Campbell
The list author says:
  "Part X-Men, part Heroes, part Close Encounters. This sci-fi thriller managed four seasons with lots of surprises before it was announced DOA, but that doesn't mean it's not worth watching."
£31.50   Used & New from: £15.57
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (89 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions
