    For me it's AMC's Rubicon. While I don't believe it was potential GOAT material, I thought it was at least interesting enough to continue. Any others?

    The Black Donnellys, i thought it was a good tv show. I think it would of been better on HBO or another network that could advertise better

    The Godd Guys with Colin Hanks and Bradley Whitford was fucking hilarious.

    I thought 'Skin' was awesome. Fox's version of Romeo and Juliet, with Romeo's father being the state governor, trying to destroy Juliet's father, the porn kingpin of the entire industry.

    Too bad it only lasted 4 episodes.... It really had potential.

    They were a victim of the fact that Syfy decided to air less scripted shows (which are expensive) and start airing fake shows about ghosts (I assume).

    It started out a little rough but by the time it was cancelled it was becoming a great show. It's too bad.

    Also Carnivale should have continued. It was another show that was too expensive.

    There were three seasons but more were planned. The contracts HBO had with the actors ended and everything went to shit
