(I saw someone post about this challenge on Twitter; and, since I purport to be a TV blogger, I thought I’d jump in.)
This is a tough one. Obviously, Freaks & Geeks and My So-Called Life come to mind, since they each ran only one season. But I think the reason they’re so beloved is that they only ran one season. If they’d gone more…maybe not as magical.
For my pick, I’m going to choose a show that was dropped by its network at the height of its quality after only three seasons. The show was later picked up by a streaming service, but too much time had passed and there was too little budget available, meaning that the entire cast was hardly ever together for the run of that season–and it showed. In fact, I basically like to pretend that one Netflix season never existed.
The show that never should’ve been cancelled (and then rebooted) is…Arrested Development.
What’s your pick?
I wrote a book! It’s YA novel, THE SOUND OF US. You can find the details right here! Kirkus calls it “a winning story about a teenage voice student that hits all the right notes.”
I also wrote another book (You’ve Got Mail in the Pokemon Go era), which comes out in a month. You can add it on Goodreads!
