We all have TV series that didn't last as long as we would have hoped for. Which TV series selected by members of the IMDb Poll Board do you feel ended to soon and should have gone on a little longer?

Limited to series that lasted one to two seasons.

Please add your idea to the list by replying below. Please limit to series that lasted only one to two seasons and I'll be more than happy to add to the list credited as your choice.

List: http://www.imdb.com/list/ls021626312/

Lie to Me
The New Normal
Andy Richter Controls the Universe
Bunheads

Bryan Fuller's extremely quirky Pushing Daisies had a lot of potential for future episodes. It would have been interesting if it shared the same universe as
Dead Like Me.

Better Off Ted was a fun, subversive look at corporate technology development.

For your consideration:

Comedy: Marblehead Manor (1987–1988)
Randolf Stonehill and Albert Dudley are respectively the third generation owner of and butler for Marblehead Manor, a mansion someplace in New England, USA. Randolf is also heir to the Stonehill corn oil fortune. Life is seldom normal in Marblehead Manor. Along with Randolf's wife, Hillary, Jerry the Chauffeur, Duane the Handy Man, Lupe the Cook, Lupe's son Elvis, and Rick the Gardener comic misunderstandings abound. The inhabitants of Marblehead Manor also have a habit of dressing up as other people to comic effect.

Drama: Crusade (1999–1999)
A team of soldiers and scientists has five years to find a cure for a plague decimating Earth.

You have to be joking suggestion:
My Mother the Car (1965–1966)
The story of the relationship between a man and his mother, the latter having been reincarnated as a 1928 Porter automobile.

Theme Song:

Pilot: My Mother The Car 1x01 - Come Honk Your Horn
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=riOcOgUE-W8

This has been considered by some critics the worst TV series ever.

Dan,

I've added Marblehead Manor. If I have difficulties filling up the list then I will add your other suggestions. (I'm presently trying to limit to one entry per user to try to get as many people as possible a chance to contribute).

Thanks.

If I can suggest two:

Life (2007-2009)
I'll Fly Away (1991-1993)

If you want each of us to stick to one, I'd go with "Life."

30 episodes or less TV Series
Rome (2005) 2 Seasons 22 episodes
The Newsroom (2012) 3 Seasons 25 episodes
Dark Skies (1996–1997) 1 Season 14 episodes
Battlestar Galactica (1978–1979) 1 Season 21 episodes
Dead Like Me (2003–2004) 2 Seasons 29 episodes

I would second these nominations
Eerie, Indiana (1991–1992) 1 Season 19 episodes
Freaks and Geeks (1999–2000) 1 season 18 episodes
Firefly (2002–2003) 1 Season 19 episodes

??? I kinda wanted too see where it was going.
I wonder now if it was ahead of the curve or just not good enough.
Birds of Prey (2002–2003) 1 Season 14 episodes

Freaks and Geeks has already been added to the list, made a notation that you preferred it. I'm not going to include Battlestar Galactica since it has been rebooted.

Is there anything else you want to add?

TheMovieSmith,

If you do not get enough contributors to this poll and you have too many secondary choices, you can use the MOVIEmeter rank of the secondary choices to select which one go into your poll suggestion.

TheMovieSmith,

Would you please move my choice, Marblehead Manor, beyond the first five choices. It is the only choice that does not crop well.

Thank you in advance for you assistance.

Would you mind correcting a small typo? The corrected version is below in bold:

We all have TV series that didn't last as long as we would have hoped for. Which TV series selected by members of the IMDb Poll Board do you feel ended too soon and should have gone on a little longer? 

Thank you, so much. : )

Police Squad! Which was cancelled by ABC after four episodes had aired, because; 'the viewer had to look at it so they could understand the humor', to quote a spokesperson for ABC on Entertainment Tonight.

Frank's Place, CBS 1987 - 1988, cancelled really because CBS CEO Laurence Tisch was offended by the episode which criticized junk bond salespersons. The program was moved all over the schedule and then cancelled because of (official reason), "poor ratings".
