There are so many shows that never get there shot to really flourish. Dollhouse. Pushing Daisies. Dirt. Veronica Mars. It’s often difficult to appreciate some of the shows that actually got a chance because some of the programming today is just plain awful. To this day it still baffles me that reality tv still has some value. Cough cough. Jersey Shore Cough cough.
But the show that I absolutely love that should have never been cancelled is Joss Whedon‘s Firefly. It got 12 episodes. And it’s the type of show that had so many stories just waiting to be told. A testament to the show and the love of the Jossverse is the fact that the show failed and still got a movie made. That’s love.
And although Nathan Fillion has found a new home on ABC and his show is doing considerably well, I would have loved to have seen what he would have done and where his character would have gone.
Firefly, you will be missed.
