Shows Cancelled on a cliffhanger

I read in another thread that Carnivale was cancelled on a cliffhanger or without a satisfactory conclusion.
I was annoyed when the same happened to Space:Above & Beyond...Can you think of any more shows where this has happened?

Why not there have been thousands of shows cancelled and many will have been of the cliffhanger sort.

So all these shows are canceled due to poor ratings. let me get this strait and please correct me if I'm wrong. Some writer comes up with a new idea. Pitches it at the production company. They say yay or nay, and the show is finally put to air. We the punters start watching and a rating is achieved. Two questions how are the ratings gathered, and are they only gathered in the primary country of production and airing? The reason I ask is that in this day and age so many shows are downloaded and watched internationally, there is no way they can know just how popular a show really is. I'm going to start a new thread on this because I'm keen to get other peoples thoughts.

Defying Gravity... I can't believe they canceled it so soon, and it was such a good show... I'm still in mourning for it!

Flash Forward was cancelled on the BIGGEST cliff hanger. Very upsetting. I loved Joseph Fiennes in this series and you have no clue in the final seconds what Mark's status is.

Make's a great season finalle (how many star trek series have season finalles like that?!), but not SERIES finalle!

I had no clue the series was cancelled until I watched the commercials for this autumn and saw no flash forward!


Black Sash also ended very unsatisfyingly. We have no clue how these kids are ending up or where Russell's Wong's character is going to end up in his custody battle for his daughter! There was this huge drama about the father-daughter and the divorce and her mother and the step-dad thing going on! No chance to work that out to minimal closure!


And of course the great no closure: Babylon 5 Crusade!

Strazinski had his 5 year arc planned and even Walter Koenig all set to reprise his role as Bester! We were about to find out about post telepath war conditions more than that TINY glimpse from John Mattheson (Daniel Dae Kim)'s scene where he helps that one rogue telepath during the war.

I wanted to know about mattheson! As much as i love Delenn, I think John Mattheson was the most interesting character in the B5 universe! And of course, Daniel Dae Kim is very easy on the eyes. ;)

I wish they would do a TV Movie to finish the show off properly.
