Happy endings. Canceled due to low views, but that was a result of changing around its timeslots, not viewers no longer having interest


This is my answer too, such an amazing cast. I wish Hulu or Netflix would bring it back. None of the actors seem to be killing it elsewhere so maybe they would do a few 10 episode seasons


If you've never seen it the actors did a reunion where they did a table read for a new episode that is hilarious. They all immediately get back into their roles and the chemistry is still there. It's on YouTube I highly recommend it.


Almost Human, it had such potential and never even finished its first season. Shown out of order, on Fox which even then had a very poor track record for sci-fi shows. Didn't help that it was a beautiful attempt at a Buddy cop series with a disgruntled and grizzeled cop with amnesia, ptsd, and addiction issues partnered with a empathetic and persecuted android that felt emotions stronger that the mc. A great cast that all seemed to fit and enjoy their roles. ***To those giving pirated and tor sites as places to find this show...I cannot and will not post pirated content.***


With Karl Urban and Michael Ealy ? Good call! I remember FOX airing the episodes out of order and pre-empting it some weeks with no notice. That was SO frustrating!


>I remember FOX airing the episodes out of order and pre-empting it some weeks with no notice. Man that sounds familiar...


Fucking fox


I miss Dorian. :( I'm sure Fox airing the episodes out of order didn't help. Like they wanted it to fail from the beginning.


Released right around the same time as Alcatraz and Terra Nova. Pissed about the loss of all three. On the plus side it made me stop trusting Fox entirely. If a show was worth watching, I’d catch it streaming somewhere else.




Harmon is fired and makes Rick & Morty; Glover leaves and makes Atlanta; John Oliver leaves and makes Last Week Tonight; Allison Brie leaves and makes Glow, Bojack, and a thousand other things; Jim Rash takes a short break to *win an Oscar;* Ken Jeong, who starts off as a glorified extra, leaves and makes the Masked Singer; The Russo Brothers leaves and become the *most financially successful film makers of all time* They had such unimaginable talent, everyone in the show exploded once it ended - but somehow NBC couldn't make it work?


And Gillian Jacobs starred in the underrated Love.


And Danny Pudi was on Ducktales!


A private plane? Larry… I’m on DUCKTALES.


And abed was on cougar town!


Don’t forget Ludwig Göransson (composer) moved on to Star Wars (the Mandalorian)


Apparently the movie is as close as it’s ever been to being a thing! Fingers crossed.


I'd love for the old cast members to show up some. Get Donald Glover back around, even if it's just for a cameo


Constantine and Clone High ​ Matt Ryan does a great job and there was great potential to explore more of the supernatural. ​ also Clone High was really funny




Infinity Train. Very upset to see that canceled. It was such a cool and unique show. I remember reading about all the stuff the creator had planned for the future of the show and seemed like he was really passionate about it and had a lot of story to tell.


Scrolled exactly to see it mentioned. Not only did it get cancelled due to being "too dark" for children. It also is being wiped out of everywhere. It’s sad to see such a good cartoon go.


Which is stupid because Infinity Train isn’t for children. It’s not for adults either. It’s a show for all ages that just happens to be animated. Western media really needs to get with the times. Cartoons are so much more than just the two extremes “for kids” or “for adults”.


People take "animation" as a genre, which is just plain wrong. It’s a tool used to convey a story, one that can be used easily to draw in fantastical worlds without having to pay ridiculous amounts of money for special effects. Many of the greatest stories I have ever seen go under the radar, because of people’s prejudice to animation.


It's fucking bonkers and I have no idea how it happened because animation got its roots as raunchy and inappropriate, all the way back to rubberhose. Maybe it looks tame now (except for the racist depictions), but a lot of animation made when it was just starting out depicted adults in mature situations, referenced adult themes, etc.—how that changed to "strictly for kids" is beyond me. But I should probably do more research.


I only started watching it when I'd heard it was cancelled. Phenomenal show. Felt a lot more mature than I was expecting for a show aimed at kids.


I know they eventually brought it back but Arrested Development should never have been cancelled. New seasons weren’t the same IMO. EDIT: I’ve never received awards before. Glad so many people love AD. Thank you!


Anustart just didn't live up to what we hoped it could have been.


The lightning they had in a bottle with that cast is unlike anything ive ever seen. Just packed with talent and the sharpest writing ive witnessed. The revamped seasons undercut just how genius and ahead of its time this show was. This show is my ultimate 'one that got away'


It got away, and then had several kids with different significant others, a couple nasty divorces, some health issues, and then they found their way back to you later in life. It just wasn't the same as it was before.


I love all the seasons equally Earlier: I don't care for 4 & 5


Carnivale. Never got over that one.


This is the show that made me want to write television. One MFA and four pilot scripts later, I'm still salty. Let's shake some dust, children!


Every time this question gets posted, this is the first show that pops into my head. It was so good :(


It always frustrates me because it felt like it was just a little bit too soon. I think if Carnivale had come along after Lost and Heroes and such (where serial ensemble cast dramas were getting very popular), more people would have taken notice and appreciated it. And certainly if it had come after Game of Thrones when HBO and fantasy shows got even more popular (though that was a bit further down the road).


YES. I am STILL pissed at HBO for that. You can’t introduce all these mysteries then just cut it off, particularly with that cliffhanger. I was so excited for the next season. I feel like Carnivale arrived too early for its own good. In today’s age of in depth internet discussions over TV shows, I think it would have picked up more of an audience. There was a lot to dissect in that show.


Came here to post this. I'm still pissed off about it almost 20 years later.


Rome. It was cancelled after two seasons because the production costs were too high.


So frustrating because the showrunner had a really fascinating [vision](https://www.reuters.com/article/televisionNews/idUSTRE4B00VV20081201) for future seasons: >The second was going to end with the death of Brutus. Third and fourth season would be set in Egypt. Fifth was going to be the rise of the Messiah in Palestine. But because we got the heads-up that the second season would be it, I telescoped the third and fourth season into the second one, which accounts for the blazing speed we go through history near the end.


It's unfortunate, but atleast we got the second season with a better rushed ending than a lot of shows get when they find out late they're being canceled. But I feel like in this day and age the they would have ended in a slightly more open ended way because there is always a chance of changing networks or a reboot. I mean, they could arguably do a reboot now and just sort of ignore part of the second season but I doubt that would ever happen.


They were planning on leisurely going through the second triumverate and civil war before heading to Palastine and getting into the birth of Christ. Massive shame really, the first season was great and the second was still fun, just obviously rushed.


I had no idea it was cancelled and that wasn’t a planned ending mark! I’ve watched it a few times through and was satisfied with the ending.


Rome walked so Game of Thrones could run. Unfortunately it ended up running off a cliff.


While setting itself on fire. And Ice


This show gave us so many stars that went on to do great work. I can't imagine HBO greenlighting GoT without Rome


The 4400 (From 2004, not the horrible remake of sorts from last year) At a time when Heroes was dropping the ball in season two, The 4400 kept killing it. And then got cancelled because of the Writers Guild strike. Also: Jericho. Ah, nuts!


It was such a wonderful show that just kinda ends abruptly. It was my introduction to Mahershala Ali and I’ve been a huge fans of his ever since seeing this show


I still love how Jericho fans sent nuts to the production company to get a wrap up... And actually got it.




Seriously. One of my all time favorite shows.


I know they were not following history exactly, but the real town of Deadwood burned the next year. That would have made a great story arc for season 4.


Dead Like Me!!


I find it funny that 3 of the top 5 are all Bryan Fuller shows. Pushing Daisies, Hannibal and Dead Like Me.


I didn't realize that all of those were from the same person. That guy is a GENIUS. Pushing Daisies and Dead Like Me are in my top 5 TV shows of all time.


Dark Matter


Here's Joseph Mallozzi's blog where he lays out an outline for what he had planned. https://josephmallozzi.com/2018/05/17/may-17-2018-dark-matter-episode-401-act-1/


If you want to cry read https://josephmallozzi.com/2017/10/12/october-12-2017-how-mgm-almost-saved-dark-matter-and-how-close-we-came-to-a-dark-matterstargate-crossover/ too


The worst part is they actually seemed to have a plan, and things were just heating up. The cliff hanger they ended on haunts me.


There is a plan. Joseph Malozzi has a blog site where he's laid out how season 4 would go to bring it to a proper ending


Colony; great sci-fi, special effects, acting and lack of cheese. EDIT: removed 2 out of 3 usages of the word great.


Same. Not the best show ever but damn did they end the series on such a massive cliffhanger.


Better Off Ted. Was ahead of it's time, imo.


"Veridian Dynamics, we are a family, and who doesnt want to spend weekends and holidays with their family."


Diversity: Just the thought of it makes these white people smile.


Veridian Dynamics. We can make radishes so spicy that people can't eat them, but we're not, because then people can't eat them.


*Veridian Dynamics. Food. Yum.*


Veridian Dynamics. Diversity. Good for us!


Just the thought of it makes these white peoples smile.


"Veridian Dynamics. People lie. Corporations protect their interests. It's different."


Veridian Dynamics was the perfect analogue to the Amazon behemoth before it became a behemoth.


"The material of the new chairs is to itchy and uncomfortable" "Soo, people will work more efficient because they can't relax, great!" Jup, sounds like any big company nowadays really


It was way more about GE.


GE, pre-breakup Rockwell, 3M, P&G, Honeywell, old Xerox, or really any other diversified gigacorp.


Veridian Dynamics. Teamwork. It keeps our employees gruntled.


“Veridian Dynamics: Friendship, it’s the same as stealing.”


Portia's best role imo. Veronica is amazing. And Phil and Lem are the best duo, ranked up there with Troy and Abed.


Phil and Lem made the show. The episode where the office automation couldn't see black people is peak comedy television.


Phil: Linda, you can’t hurt a baby! Lem: Well, you can hurt them. They’re not indestructible. Phil: I *meant* it’s morally indefensible. Lem: Well, what if the baby killed a man? Phil: You and your moral puzzles. I just love ’em!


Phil: Did you put hydrochloric acid in this mug? Lem: Oh, yeah. I was trying to get the stains out. Phil: You know, soap would work. And it wouldn’t kill someone if they accidentally drank it. Lem: But soap leaves a film. ___ Phil: Lem, you ever get the feeling the ooplasm cultures are looking up at you, worshiping you like a vengeful god? Lem: No. Cytoplasm cultures sometimes, but never ooplasm. Phil: Sometimes you are a complete stranger to me.


“The company’s position is that it’s actually the opposite of racism, because it’s not targeting them, it’s simply ignoring them.”


My absolute favorite gag is when they're working on some polymer coating to make dishes unbreakable. They hit them together and they catch fire. Was fucking great.


I work in Aerospace. The episode where Phil and Lem come to terms with the fact that everything they work on gets used for evil hit pretty close to home.


"Money over human lives Ted, you know that. Says so right on the lobby floor, only in latin, sounds more heroic"


I can picture Portia's eye inflections just from reading this.


I didn't watch much of this show, but I still 1000000% remember the episode with the automatic lights and drinking fountains not being working for the Black employees.


they are not discriminating against black people, they are ignoring them. I lost it at that line. Classic Veronica


Veronica: “Money before people,” that’s the company motto. Engraved on the lobby floor. It just looks more heroic in Latin.


Veronica was fantastic. "Ted, you're a guest. I can't have you flinching every time I shoot a gun in here."


Damn y'all really got me about to watch this show just to appreciate Veronica


The episode where Ted is sleeping with the German executive who starts wearing the translation collar, but it's the nasally voice of one of the scientists is one of my favorites.


i have no idea how the could cancel that show. perfect casting, and one of the funniest shows of all time. it had so many tropes and jokes that they could continue. boggles my mind how that show never got a chance but we have so much trash allowed 5 seasons


It was killed by the writers strike supposedly. Truly great subversive comedy **Veronica**: A female mentor would have been very valuable for a young Veronica, bursting with potential, yet vulnerable, like a fawn in the woods, but tough, like a fawn in the woods with a machine gun. **Linda**: So you're saying you, or this terrifying, murderous fawn, could have used some guidance? **Veronica**: Yes, we would have liked that. We're going to raise more money for this charity than it ever has before. The forest will run red with the blood of woodland creatures who doubted little Veronica and will now pay with their furry little lives.


Portia De Rossi was so great in this.


“We believe the multi-language translator will create a furor in Germany. A furor that will sweep across Europe crushing…no”


**Linda to Veronica:** There's really no middle ground with you. Either you don't care at all or you care a hundred and crazy percent.


"oh my god, this is a fawn" "Ohhh... Huh... Then what was i thinking of? Oh, a monster. That was it. I always confuse those two."


Totally agree. Truly mind-boggling - the characters were so great that it seemed like there was unlimited potential for episode ideas. I could have watched them trapped in a supply closet for 30 minutes, easily.


The scientist duothey were gold


"We've disappointed him!" "Nobody would want to be us right now, and since we are us, it's very difficult."


I watered about 2 minutes that my DVR recorded at the end of another show and I was sold forever. "Get rid of everything except that ficas." "You mean the man-eating ficas?" "You know what, I'm just gonna avoid this floor entirely."


I really want the third season of Mindhunter


This show was done so well.


Still one of the best shows Netflix have ever made.


Left off on such a cliff hanger!


It bothers me whenever I see the BTK actor in commercials now. I can’t really separate him those few scenes we get of him.


Hiding in plain sight


And 4th! Shit, I'd have taken a 5th as well. Not many of those "Profiler" type shows are proper entertaining... but Mindhunter was subtle in its flashiness, plus the cinematography *PLUS* directing were incredible.


The set/location creation/setup was on point as well. Down to all the cars in the prison parking lot. It really felt like it was filmed in the '70s and early '80s. The first scene where they went into the Federal Prison in Richmond, Va it really gave me a nostalgia blast as I grew up in the '80s near the city.


Venture Brothers. Wtf?


Adult swim is famous for cancelling shows before their time. In 2016 they live streamed a fax machine printing off incoming petitions to bring back Metalocalypse with each sheet of paper falling directly into a recycling bin.


Aqua teen hunger Force, The Boondocks and Venture Brothers hurt, but Metalocalypse show creator Brendon Small said he only needed one more season to wrap up his story. One season. They couldn't even give him that.


The creator has said HBO Max is giving him the chance to finish up the story with a made-for-streaming movie, but that was a whole CEO ago…


I'm so used to waiting forever for Venture Bros updates I didn't even think about how screwed they are under this new regime... CRAP


That one hasn’t hit for me yet because I wasn’t expecting the next season for another 3 years anyway


Invader Zim. Zim related apparel still sells and is popular with kids. The stylized art of the show makes it timeless.


“a room with a moose” still makes me laugh out load thinking about it.


I read a story a while ago that Zim was cancelled partially because spending got out of control. However, that happened because the animation department did things no one asked for. The example they provided? Making the walnuts CG when there was no need


When in other cases, they just completely forget to animate a busy street of traffic. The duality of Zim animators.


They did release a Zim movie recently that was great. Check out Enter the Florpus if you get a chance


It was so weird how they essentially just released a normal, if longer episode of Invader Zim like 20 years after it was canceled, and everything still felt exactly like the original, and then they did nothing with it.


It's a cheap way of testing the waters for bringing back the series. Rather than make a whole season, you make a "movie". If the movie meets certain goals, you're clear to bring back the series.


Probably the next one on Netflix that is announced and canceled at the same time.


Announcement and advertising one day before release. 2 seconds after it's available: "it hasn't reached 230 million hours of viewership so we're cancelling due to people's lack of interest."


From what I understand they base it off 30days of info. So even if a show is extremely popular and trending for an entire week, if it falls of the following weeks theh might still cancel them. Its dumb because the total hours could still be higher than other shows, while having good reviews.


Also it completely ignores that things can catch on slowly. Cult classics and word of mouth. Must spare the bottom line some costs of they cancel immediately.


This is what kills me. Netflix has cemented its reputation of canceling shows that shouldn't be cancelled. So I don't want to get invested, and spend the time watching something that I'm sure will get cancelled. They've created the situation they're in themselves.


‘Member when Netflix has a reputation for quality? Now it’s just a dumping ground for things not good enough for theatres or Tv. Whenever Netflix makes anything actually good, they cancel it


I think they saw the success of quarantine-released shows like tiger king and are expecting numbers to match or exceed that still, even though we're no longer trapped in our homes to do nothing but watch Netflix anymore. People got lives.


Great point. Companies like Netflix and Peloton saw such huge numbers during covid that they greedily refused to accept that as an abnormality.


Freaks and Geeks


Yes. This is always my answer. It was ahead of it time and so good. One season was not enough


I’ve always said this too, but honestly with the way companies keep dragging things out way past their lifespan.. It’s kind of nice to have a perfect, un-ruined show that will always live on fondly in my memory.


Marco Polo on Netflix. Love that era of history, and I thought it was a top watch.


I feel like shows like Vikings could be made for other civilizations. Like the mongols, the aztecs, or shows depicting the start of great civilizations such as the romans or the rise of Islam. I started watching Ertugrul which is a Turk show on the rise of the ottomans but as much as I like the historical parts, the show is run like a soap opera and it gets annoying.


Had to scroll far too long to find this. Benedict Wong as Kublai Khan was spectacular, I was genuinely angry when I heard they cancelled it.


That is still my favorite role of his, he absolutely *smashed* it. But this is just another in a long line of Netflix series that got canned for its insane production costs. They filmed on location, and the set/costume design was immaculate. Seriously, it's one of the best *looking* shows I've ever watched. Season 2 was pretty ponderous with the Kokachin plot line, but I was loving what they were setting up with Hundred-Eyes/Jingham, and the Prestor John story. I too was angry when I heard it got cancelled. In fact, I still remember exactly where I was. I was trying to get my friends in to the show, and one of them chimed in to let me know it got axed. I was devastated haha


Veronica Mars (the original TV series)


Pushing Daisies. Such a clever plot: Ned touches somebody who's dead and they come back to life; he touches them again and they die permanently. If he doesn't touch them the second time within one minute, somebody else dies in their place. His talent proves useful for solving murder cases, but he'd rather be a piemaker. His girlfriend died of suspicious causes on a cruise ship, he touched her to bring her back to life, but now he can never touch her ever again ... Wonderful musical numbers in each episode with great performers such as Kristin Chenoweth. Won a bunch of Primetime Emmys. Killed by the writers' strike, never made it back to television. A graphic novel was planned to wrap up the story but it never got published. The star, Lee Pace, played Ronan the Accuser in the Marvel movies. Really weird to see a simple piemaker as a galactic villain.


What I really love about the show is how you explain the plot to someone and it sounds grim and dark. But you watch the show and it is the most wholesome show about murder you've ever seen.


Those scenes in the morgue were just so colourful, especially when the victim's raincoat got melted by the heat of the lighthouse light and she looked like a sunny-side up egg.


Yes! The deaths were gruesome but fun hahah. The whole color palette of the show was amazing. The way everything and everyone was always colorful but Ned always wore black, grey, and white. And the aesthetics were gorgeous.


It was a creative collaboration between Bryan Fuller (Dead Like Me, Hannibal, Wonderfalls, season 1 of American Gods, king of this whole thread as far as I'm concerned) and Barry Sonnenfeld (Addams Family & Addams Family Values, Men in Black, Get Shorty) Like what a powerhouse duo, come on.


For anyone else reading this and has never watched Dead Like Me.....I absolutely loved that series as well and if you enjoyed Pushing up Daisies you will likely enjoy Dead Like Me....although its a little more bleak lol.


It's like a gruesome murder mystery show made by Dr. Seuss. It's wonderful.


Lee Pace is also wonderful in Halt and Catch Fire and is easily the best part of the Foundation show.


And in The Fall (the movie directed by Tarsem, not the tv show with the same name).


The Fall is SPECTACULAR, visually stunning and heartbreakingly well written and performed.


And they took like FOUR YEARS to film it! It’s my absolute favorite and NOBODY has seen it.


I literally don't understand this. It is the most beautiful movie I've ever seen and nobody I know has even heard of it 😭


I think Lee Pace said in an interview that the visuals were specifically crafted to try to imitate the imagination of a child who had never seen a movie. She wouldn’t be picturing images limited to a screen, she would be picturing herself in the midst of these gorgeous, expansive places, so how do you make the audience at home feel the same way she feels as she imagines this?


Every show by Bryan Fuller that got cancelled too soon. Pushing Daisies Dead Like Me Wonderfalls




He also plays Thranduil in The Hobbit!! He has excellent range as an actor.


Someone on Twitter once asked if they remade Labrynth, who would play the Goblin King, and I couldn't think of anyone better than Lee Pace to do it.


If you can find it, check out The Fall. He's AMAZING in it. But it's never been released digitally and I had the hardest time picking up the DVD 15 years ago, I can't imagine it's easy now.


Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency


Fan of both Dirk Gently shows, the Elijah Wood BBC America version (two seasons) and the earlier Stephen Mangan BBC Four version (four episodes). Very different approaches but both versions work for me.


At least the 2 seasons we did get were terrific though


They left Bart in a jail cell!


Yeah, I’m alright with where they left off Amanda’s group and Todd’s group. They’re off to new fun adventures, and that’s their open ending. But Bart, Ken and Mr Priest are in the middle of their storyline! If we just had one more season... just one...


I really liked this show, so quirky and weird. I also wanted to see Bart's story end with her happy. Idk, she was wholesome in a "magically altering probability to assist her assassin job" way


Frustrating because the show was so creative, but the showrunner was such a legendary asshole. I feel like he deserved to be cancelled, but i dont think the show would have been the same without him. Ugh. Sucks.


you speak the truth here, goddamit I'm still sad over it


Hannibal Original plan was to run for seven seasons but was sadly canceled after only three perfect ones


Yes absolutely gutted


I see what you did there


That show was fantastic. Pulp, horror, pretentious……and “food” porn. It was also beautifully filmed. I am still stunned that it ran on network television.


It was food porn, murder porn, art porn, word porn and porn porn. On network television!


Don’t forget fashion with Hannibal’s suits


The food porn was next LEVEL


I loved the food stylist's blog. Looks like she posted a bit about working on American Gods after Hannibal too. Even picked up her cookbook! http://janicepoonart.blogspot.com/?m=1




When Netflix bought it, it was supposed to get a fourth season, but it just never happened. Man, I would do anything for more Hannibal.


Ash vs. Evil Dead


It does suck that it was cancelled, but at least it had a pretty decent and character-appropriate ending.


It's a great ending, honestly. I can't think of a better one. "And he starts a family and settles down" wouldn't work for Ash.


That show literally had everything going for it. - good plot that only kept me more and more interested with each season - Funny as fuck. Not sure if I’ve laughed as much at any other show. Ash’s lack of self awareness mixed with the dynamic Pablo and Kelly provide makes the show what it is - badass fighting scenes with good humor squeezed in - killer soundtrack (if you like classic rock, you gotta watch) - easy to rewatch. I’ve seen it start to finish about 6 times and it never gets old. I could list many more things but damn that was a good tv show. It’s a shame another streaming service didn’t pick it up. The ending was great but very open as to what could happen next. I wish they just did a final movie or something to wrap it all up, but a man can only dream.


Final Space!!! , Firefly. Stargate universe (and atlantis not being finished properly), Mindhunter, the 4400(original)


Took me far too long to see final space. Chookity pok


“I’m not okay with this” on Netflix (Thanks for the awards guys!!)


I really resent that Netflix marks this show - and other cancelled ones - as 'most liked'. Like great - I'm going to really enjoy the 7 episodes and then be left hanging?


I didn't realize this one was cancelled 😢 I figured it was just on long hiatus because COVID


You're actually not far off. The show was renewed for Season 2, and production was indeed delayed due to COVID. Unfortunately what happened then is that the delay caused the shooting schedule to conflict with other contractual obligations for the cast, and finding a way to restart production with everyone present became logistically impossible or pushed so far out into the future that it doesn't even make partial sense for the characters to pretend to be the same age they were when Season 1 ended. I'm bummed as hell it was cancelled too but at least I can understand why in this case (unlike some OTHER Netflix shows *cough*Santa Clarita Diet*cough*).


Rome, it was such a well made show


It being so well made is what got it cancelled. They didn't want to pay the budget.




The Guild of Millers: True Roman Bread for True Romans!




My Name is Earl we needed one more season


I read (creator) Greg Garcia's idea for the ending on an AMA he did 8 years ago and it actually gave me closure and maybe led to a tear being shed. This isn't a spoiler since the show doesn't exist anymore but I'll tag it as one just in case. (>!)"I had always had an ending to Earl and I’m sorry I didn’t get the chance to see it happen. You’ve got a show about a guy with a list so not seeing him finish it is a bummer. But the truth is, he wasn’t ever going to finish the list. The basic idea of the ending was that while he was stuck on a really hard list item he was going to start to get frustrated that he was never going to finish it. Then he runs into someone who had a list of their own and Earl was on it. They needed to make up for something bad they had done to Earl. He asks them where they got the idea of making a list and they tell him that someone came to them with a list and that person got the idea from someone else. Earl eventually realizes that his list started a chain reaction of people with list and that he’s finally put more good into the world than bad. So at that point he was going to tear up his list and go live his life. Walk into the sunset a free man. With good karma."(!<) Edit: adding a link if you're interested. The AMA was a great and it's kind of crazy to see a time when something like that would only get 340 upvotes. https://www.reddit.com/r/IAmA/comments/1njddc/im_greg_garcia_creator_of_my_name_is_earl_raising/


That's beautiful, it does kinds put me at ease now. And a wonderful "moral of the story". Work everyday to bring some good and kindness into the world. That's how we make the world a better place, by being better ourselves. But at the end of the day, don't sweat it, don't take yourself too seriously. Live and let live. Thank you for commenting this.


“Hey Earl.” “Hey Crab Man.”


I want one more season and I want them to never directly acknowledge that Ethan Suplee is now jacked. "Randy, something's different about you." "I got a haircut."


Saw a video on that a few days ago. They cancelled it for no reason. And it was supposed to be the final season which they cancelled. So they left us in the middle of the story. I miss randy. I liked randy the most.


Came for earl, stayed for randy. Then actually came for Joy


Joy was my favorite. But every character on that show was perfectly cast.


I loved the characters. I still think of Patty the daytime hooker everytime I see a daytime hooker.


Loved that show


Came here to comment this. There are countless shows that ended ahead of their time, or cancelled without warning leaving us wanting, but nothing that left me with an unquenchable thirst for resolution like this show. Granted, they gave it a "wink and nod" ending in the pilot episode of Raising Hope, but it's not the same as giving me an entire season of finding out who really was Earl Jr's dad.


Greg Garcia said that they hadn’t entirely worked out who it would be yet, but they were thinking maybe a celebrity who was going through town. I think Dave Chapelle’s name was listed as a possibility.
