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.

Bob and Rose - Needed a few more episodes...I felt a bit cheated with the final episode, but overall loved the series.

Flash Forward - Would have been better as a mini-series

Cold Feet - Final season aired in the UK, but the last season will not be released on DVD in the U.S.

My So Called Life

True Colors

The Mole - Became Celebrity Mole, and wasn't as an enjoyable

Especially on HBO. At least it had 23-24 episodes in the 1st season. I bought it so I could re watch and enjoy.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I also really miss this show.

Definitely Pushing Daisies. There was a show in the mid-90s called Bakersfield PD that was great.

Twin Peaks.

I was born to be a pessimist. My blood type is B Negative.
There was one show that I loved that got cancelled after only around 13 episodes. It was called "Side Order of Life" and it was on Lifetime. It aired around 4 or 5 years ago. I normally detest anything on that channel but I was channel surfing one night and stumbled upon it and was immediately hooked. I think I had caught the second episode, because I never got to see the first one. It was about a woman who'd broken up with her fiancee and had a best friend with cancer. The show was so warm and touching and I identified with a lot of the situations. It had Jason Priestly as the ex. I was pissed that it never got renewed. I tried to watch "Army Wives" on the same channel, but I couldn't get into it. That show lasted longer than "Side Order of Life." Probably figures.

Sweet, funny, quirky, visually stunning, sometimes dark, sad, all-around lovely show about a man who can bring things back to life.
