The annual list of renewals and cancellations was (mostly) announced this week, and my wife is very saddened to have found one of her favorites, ‘Castle’, on the list of casualties.  Add to that the end of ‘Galavant’ and ‘Agent Carter’, and you can be sure that the executives of the American Broadcasting Company ain’t getting a Chrimmus card from us this year.  Still, it could be worse, as the producers of ‘Castle’ were prepared with a finale that offers closure for 8 years of the show, much more than a previous Nathan Fillion show got from Fox.  That statement alone should tell you that the Cancellation Blues is A Thing, leading us to today’s on-the-bubble query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is still a little bugged at the 2013 loss of ‘Legion Of Super-Heroes’ after FORTY-FIVE years of publication, asking: What no-longer-in-production series gave you the biggest case of the Cancellation Blues?

    Almost Human. A fantastic buddy cop tv show about a cop (played by Dr McCoy) and his android partner. It was such a great show.

    Finnish edition of X-Men. It ran from 1984 to 2014. Kids just don’t buy superhero comic books here anymore. Its all generic manga and adults buy hard bound trades.

    The “Stargate” TV franchise in general. I am still quite sad that MGM pulled the plug and decided not to go ahead with the direct-to-DVD movies that were in pre-production that would both continue the SG-1 and Atlantis stories and wrap-up Stargate Universe (which I didn’t like quite as much, but I didn’t find it completely terrible).
