Have you ever watched a series that just came to an abrupt halt when in actual sense, it was meant to continue? It either gets banned or the producers decide to halt it, for one reason or the other. It is the worst feeling ever to be in great suspense then get to hear that a particular production will never go on.

Yeah... As a matter of fact. It was back in 02. A tv series that had the look and feel of all the current series produced for the streaming tv networks had it's debut. Push Nevada. A mild mannered IRS agent is sent to find out about an accounting error of sizable amount from a Nevada casino. The town of Push Nevada has more going on than could ever be imagined by looks. Only 7 episodes were aired before the plug was pulled by ABC. Ben Affleck was one of the creators of the series. It really was a compelling and quirky production that achieved sort of a cult status from it's abrupt demise. The story goes it was too intellectual for the American public at that time. One was compelled to think about what was going on in the plot.

Ben Affleck was my favourite actor and I used to closely follow anything he featured in. It is really sad to hear that he has been in and out of rehab for quite some time but the good thing is that he is willing to be a better person. Most good productions go through this cycle, and you begin to wonder if at times, things often get out of anyone's control.

I was a big fan of the TV show Marco Polo and was really looking forward to the second season but it got cancelled. It seems not to have been a big hit with the fans.

HBO's Rome had its season 3, 4, and 5 cancelled due to expensive filming. The writers have written the scripts for those seasons and fans were expecting to see them, but BBC cannot afford the costs any longer. I wish a network would continue on the story that was left off at the end of season 2.

I loved Roseanne and it ended much too abruptly before the season could conclude. I understand why the show was axed and I agree that Roseanne Barr's behavior was disgusting and something had to be done, but I still miss the show.

I love the show Firefly. It unfortunately only had 1 season. It was excellent, I have rewatched the few episodes that were made many times. It still bothers me it got cancelled prematurely. I know so many people who love the show. I still hope for a Netflix revival.
