  1. Farscape. Amazing show with incredible actors as well as great puppet based aliens (Jim Henson company). They thought they had another season so they ended on a huge cliffhanger. Then, Sci-Fi channel decided “we’re not going to do space stuff anymore despite our name being Sci-fi” (this was before their stupid Sy-fy rebrand). So it was cancelled.

    The fans protested, but Sci-fi persisted for awhile. They finally relented and approved a miniseries to tie everything up. Unfortunately, sets had already been scrapped so they needed to restore everything and the vocal modulations that were used to create Pilot’s voice had been lost and needed to be recreated.

    More importantly, the show runners had a plan for the entire series. It would have spanned (IIRC) 3 more seasons so they needed to compress 3 seasons’ worth of show into the equivalent of 4 episodes. The result wasn’t horrible, but definitely wasn’t up to Farscape’s usual standards.

  2. Martial Law. It was a really fun and quirky cop show starring Sammo Hung. Then they decided to bring in Arsenio Hall to try to make it like Rush Hour. Miserable failure and show was cancelled. Ruined a good thing.
