1. Alien Nation (1989-1990): This series was largely a metaphor for race relations dealing with issues of prejudice and racism. By having a group of alien newcomers land on Earth and then adapt to our World was a great idea for a series. The show, based on the earlier 1988 film, would only last one season but would spawn 5 TV movies as well, most of which weren't too bad.

This was a fun series that mixed the old west with a bit of sci-fi and a touch of Indiana Jones....I loved it.

 6-    WHEN THINGS WERE ROTTEN

     Much, MUCH funnier than ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS.

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

Andy Riecter's Universe
Grosse Pointe
Both were funny but too smart.

If it counts, the original Battlestar Galatica was one season, then a year gap before it was revived as Galatica 1980, the latter of which is infamously bad!

13. The Honeymooners



Even though the characters were on the Jackie Gleason Show it only had one season as a series of its own.

     This was brought back in the 80's in a slightly different format, as PRESS YOUR LUCK....

Yes, I fondly remember PYL.  That was on for 3 seasons.  So I went with the original, which wasn't as good but deserved longer than 3 weeks.

14. Freaks and Geeks (1999-2000): very, very good show teen drama series that should have lasted a lot longer. Many of its stars went on to greater movie success. I love this show.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
