I agree with The Tick (live-action) and Firefly. Loved them both.

Invasion. Aliens invade the waters of Florida and take over some residents. It was awesome. Left on a huge cliffhanger and never returned

And the one that was on before it with that sea monster - that ended with a cliffhanger and never returned either.

What About Brian did the same thing to me. I was so sad.

I forgot about Freaks and Geeks.

That show had unusually good character development, and a great soundtrack. Remember the guidance counselor? Or the time Ben Stiller played a bodyguard for some politician?

Sigh.

Another +1 for Pushing Daisies, and another one ABC slept on - the Middleman with Natalie Morales and Matt Keeslar. It aired on ABC Family for one season.
Team Wash and Go!
Ooh thought of an oldie I loved. It was called A Year in the Life. It was an ensemble cast of a family (kinda like Parenthood or Brothers and Sisters).

It starred a young Sarah Jessica Parker, Adam Arkin, oh and that blonde girl from Can't Buy me Love.

Add me to the list for Pushing Daisies and Dirty Sexy Money.

I also miss, Freaky Links....no one knows this TV show, and now, Awake. Yeah, they wrapped it up but I wished I could have seen where they would take it.
I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

Count me in for Pushing Daisies (loved), My So Called Life, and Flash Forward.

I'll also add The United States of Tara which aired on Showtime 09'-11'. It starred Toni Collette and focused around her character having dissociative identity disorder. I was in awe of this show. Utterly amazing.

The No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency, HBO, 2009. This started Jill Scott and focused around her starting a detective agency in Botswana. It was based on a novel. I found it delightful, but apparently not many others did.

Oh- and Dirt, FX, 2009 maybe. 2 seasons, Courteney Cox. Centered around a sleazy tabloid rag and had too many crazy story lines.

Lipstick Jungle. Can't remember the network or year.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I want to add pan am to the list, not because it was 'awesome' but because it had potential. The looming threat of cancellation forced the writers into rushed storylines.

I liked Pan Am too, but I wished they would change some of the actors. Stiff as a board!

I liked Dirty, Sexy Money and Dirt also.

One good reason to only maintain a small circle of friends is that three out of four murders are committed by people who know the victim. ~George Carlin~

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~
And let me add Carnival, lol, HBO, 2003-2005. Stunning and eerie show. It was set in 1934. A young fugitive named Ben Hawkins joins a traveling mystic carnival and all hell breaks loose. Literally. It starred several people but Michael J Anderson from Twin Peaks was one of my favorites.

That sounds weird and good.
