I agree with you on those. I thought The Lone Gunmen was great (even though critics hated it) and I also enjoyed FreakyLinks.

I also remember watching Dinosaur when I was younger. I like it.

Is anybody here remember the tv series Catweazle? That was one of my favorite shows in my childhood. It's about a magician from the 13th century who is forced to live in the 20th century. He must find 13 (!) zodiac signs to find his way back into his time.

I had completely forgotten about Sheep in the Big City.  It was the one show that satiated my need to be assailed with bad puns for 30 minutes straight.   More shows should try to do that (And I'm serious). 

I’ll also throw in mentions for “The Critic,” “Titus,” and “Clone High”.  All were great shows.

Panzi, what are you talking about?

10 seasons, almost 200 episodes doesn't seem too short lived to me.

And while I'm here, I not a huge fan of sitcoms, but does anyone remember the show  Stark Raving Mad?
This was qualitly humor, cut short 18 episodes into it's first season.

Andy Richter was fantastic(anyone see the crap FOX has him doing now?).Freaks ad Geeks was good. The Critic is a thing of beauty(thank god for my dvd). I can't believe no one has mentioned Get A Life! Wonderful Dave Mirkin show, and it had Frank Welker as Spewey in their ET parody.

I doubt that any show that was replayed almost constantly on ABC, ABC Family, and Comedy Central as "short lived."  I mean, it's kinda funny, but it no way deserves to be labeled "great."  And I doubt it was short lived, either.  Or maybe it just seemed like there were 500 seasons...

Yeah, I mean Whose Line started out British then moved to ABC right? And Wayne Brady became pretty well known from that too, enough to get made fun of.

What are you talking about? Whose Line is not showing on ABC anymore, and it was on as long as Futurama was on. And I'm not talking about the British version. But even if you mean that offensively, that's not nice. I love Whose Line? as much I as I love Futurama and anything else I love. I'm soooo upset that it's canceled...  frown

I miss that show, Butt Ugly Martians.  That show had unlimted possibilities.   I would've made a few changes of it though, like not have it rip-off Power Rangers, like it sort of did.

WB has cancelled another show I liked, "Ozzie and Driz".  First "Static Shock" and now this show.  Good News, is that CN now airs "Static Shock" and will air "Ozzie and Driz" in October.

Yes, I remember a short live show, 'Models Inc', it's released after 'Melrose Place,' but due to its low rating record, the show was cancelled.

Anybody remember "Viper"?
 I think it was Canadian only.

And stupid Clone High, leaving us in suspense, how dare they!

Lone Gunmen was pretty good, but I think it was mostly "outside" character developement that X-files couldn't cover, or that's what it turned into anyway.

Basically most Disney shows are short lived.  Due to their policy of shows having to end at 65 episodes no matter what.  However, there are exceptions.  Darkwing Duck and Aladdin are some of the few that lasted longer than 65 episodes, because of fan base.

Kim Possible is another show that is doomed to be a short lived show.

What about Star Trek: The Next Generation?  On second thoughts, don't answer that.  Mention Star Trek nowadays and you'll either end up discussing the cultural significance of the original, or bitching about how Voayger/Enterprise have turned the franchise into a joke.  TNG and Deep Space Nine never get a mention anymore, despite the fact they were by far the two best series.
