Welcome to Canceled Too Soon, the podcast that only reviews TV shows that lasted one season or less! Every week, your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold will guide you through television's strangest missteps, and decide once and for all if they were... canceled too soon!

The success of HBO's GAME OF THRONES has led to a lot of expensive, epic, violent and sex-filled television shows, but none were less successful than OF KINGS AND PROPHETs, the ABC series that told the story of King Saul (Ray Winstone) and David (Olly Rix), was expected to be a huge audience draw, and which only lasted two episodes.

Who could have foreseen the failure of OF KINGS AND PROPHETS? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are here to take a close look at this biblical misfire, to analyze its place in religious cinema, and to consider OF KINGS AND PROPHETS deserved to last more than two measly episodes.

Before there was HBO's WESTWORLD, and after there was Michael Crichton's WESTWORLD, there was the short-lived television series BEYOND WESTWORLD. Jim McMullan and Connie Selecca star as Delos agents who are tracking down realistic robots that have been unleashed on the world by a mad scientist, played by James Wainwright. Will they be able to foil his nefarious scheme to take over nuclear submarines, football teams and rock bands?

We'll never know, because unlike the HBO series, BEYOND WESTWORLD was canceled after only three episodes. But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are on the case, reviewing all five BEYOND WESTWORLD installments, including two that were filmed but never shown on television! Listen up and you'll find out if BEYOND WESTWORLD as really weird as it sounds, and whether it holds a candle to the original movie or to the acclaimed HBO series.

What did Leonard Nimoy do after the STAR TREK television series but before the STAR TREK movies? He was BAFFLED! It's a feature-length pilot for an NBC mystery series, in which Leonard Nimoy plays a psychic race car driver solving mysteries in a weird Agatha Christie-like house, along with an alluring female companion played by Susan Hampshire.

This funky fantasy never went to series, but was BAFFLED!... canceled too soon? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they probe the pilot of BAFFLED! for its many secrets, ponder the sultry sensuality of Leonard Nimoy, read some of your emails and fall down the never-ending rabbit hole of fan theories.

It's one of the most infamous shows in TV history, a series that only lasted four episodes in 1996 before ratings and controversy shut it down. It's PROFIT, a cynical and disturbing drama about a sociopathic businessman who will stop at nothing to get ahead, indulging in sex, drugs, murder, blackmail and worse to become President of Acquisitions at a multibillionaire company. Critics raved, audiences refused, and one of our most requested episodes was born.

But was PROFIT really canceled too soon? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they audit this cult classic series, and decide once and for all if PROFIT was really ahead of its time... and how it's currently way behind the times today. Was it insightful or shallow? Empowering or sexist? And where would the story of PROFIT have gone if the show continued, and how close did we really come to a crossover between PROFIT and ANGEL? (Here's a hint: closer than you'd think!)

The old MACGYVER ran for seven seasons and two tv movies. The new MACGYVER is one of the biggest hits of the 2016 television season. But between those two action series, all but forgotten to history, was YOUNG MACGYVER... a failed pilot starring SUPERNATURAL's Jared Padalecki as the scientist secret agent's nephew, who makes life-saving gadgets out of portable propane stoves because he's MacGyver, and participates in ill-advised fast food eating contests because he's "young."

The ABC series YOUNG MACGYVER never went to series, but could it be that this series was... CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they analyze the myth of MACGYVER, decide what makes a tv series "MacGyver" or not, and decide just how lame "cool" kids from the early 2000s really were. (They also announce the winner of their first-ever sweepstakes, who will get to pick a one-season wonder tv series this podcast will cover in the coming weeks.)

An Irish prostitute has been found murdered, and the Russian mafia, the prince of England, a mentally unstable tailor and Billy Zane are somehow involved. When an American teenager gets fingered, everybody goes nuts and nobody is innocent. That's the set-up for GUILT, the short-lived mystery series from Freeform that tried to be the next SCANDAL but wound up playing more like JIM HENSON'S DYNASTY BABIES.

To top it all off, GUILT ended on a huge cliffhanger. So was it CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they untangle all the threads from this violent tapestry of unlaundered brassieres, unveil the secrets of the show, and figure out where it would have gone if the show had continued. Why couldn't GUILT find an audience? And should we feel guilty that it didn't?

Before the Marvel Studios movies you know and love, there were a lot of Marvel superhero movies that nobody remembers. Case in point: DOCTOR STRANGE, a 1978 made-for-tv movie starring Peter Hooten (ORCA) as an oversexed psychologist who does battle with Lurch from THE ADDAMS FAMILY and Jessica Walter, the mom from ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT, who plans to seduce him for Cthlulhu (more or less).

The TV movie based on DOCTOR STRANGE never became a series, but was it... canceled too soon? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they look back at this odd Marvel superhero novelty item, and as as they debate demonic social circles and wonder where popular culture officially went wrong.

Sam and Max are a dog and a rabbity thing. They are freelance police. And they are completely insane. The award-winning comic strip by Steve Purcell became a series of hit video games from LucasArts and Telltale Games and, from 1997 to 1998, an animated Saturday morning cartoon series that ripped rationality a new one and riddled kids full of wildly inappropriate humor. It was SAM AND MAX: FREELANCE POLICE!!!, and it didn't last.

But was SAM AND MAX: FREELANCE POLICE!!!... canceled too soon? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they take a look back at the cult favorite cartoon series, and hold court over whether SAM AND MAX was ahead of its time or too maddening for its own good. The answers aren't going to come easily, folks. (And then there was the time Witney swallowed a wallet!)

In the 1980s and 1990s, Gary Larson's THE FAR SIDE was one of the most popular comic strips in the world, selling books and calendars and infiltrating the pop culture consciousness. The strip was such a hit that CBS produced a Halloween special in 1994, just a few months before Gary Larson retired, and it was a morbid and experimental animated short filled with death and dismemberment.

It may not have been a TV series, but nobody talks about TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE anymore, it's out of print on home video, and it never shows up on television. So was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold talk you through the strange THE FAR SIDE animated show that brings Gary Larson's popular comic strips to life, and adds macabre new tales to its legacy.

Wes Craven, the master of horror, was famous for creating classic horror movies like A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, SCREAM and THE LAST HOUSE ON THE LEFT. He was significantly less famous for co-creating NIGHTMARE CAFE, a 1992 television series starring Jack Coleman (HEROES), Lindsay Frost (CROSSING JORDAN) and Robert Englund (Freddy Krueger himself) as employees of a magic nightmare cafe that travels around the world meting out paranormal poetic justice.

NIGHTMARE CAFE has an impressive pedigree but only six episodes to its credit, so was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they delve into every episode of NIGHTMARE CAFE, try to solve its unknown mysteries, examine the show's strange quasi-connection to DOCTOR WHO, and ponder the legacy of the late, great Wes Craven.

It's not just a film, it's a legend. In the year 2000, the feature-length Halloween special CRY BABY LANE debuted on Nickelodeon and was immediately pulled off the airwaves, allegedly after parents complained that the film - about a young boy who accidentally raises the ghost of a conjoined, but severed twin - was too violent for children. CRY BABY LANE vanished for years, becoming a horrifying creepypasta in the process. 

But was it... canceled too soon? Your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined by Rebekah McKendry from Blumhouse.com and the Shock Waves podcast to examine this spooky-wooky Halloween special and decide once and for all if the creepypasta is real. Is CRY BABY LANE the most terrifying film in history, or was it just a weird and forgotten experiment from the hallowed halls of Nickelodeon?

Why was there never a LOST BOYS or MONSTER SQUAD television series? It's probably because DRACULA: THE SERIES had it covered. This one season wonder co-starred Mia Kirshner (THE L WORD) and Geraint Wyn Davies (FOREVER KNIGHT), and was about a pair of plucky American kids living with their uncle Gustav Van Helsing, next door to "Alexander Lucard," a.k.a. Dracula. They fight the forces of darkness by breaking into Dracula's house every single week, foiling the evil hell beast's plans to buy failing movie houses, hire Brooklyn psychics, and eat all the poppy seeds he can handle.

DRACULA: THE SERIES was a weird, weird show, but was it... canceled too soon? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they exhume every single episode of this mostly forgotten horror series, try to figure what the heck a "time hole" is, and read a few of your letters. Was DRACULA: THE SERIES a cult classic that doesn't have a cult yet, or does it deserve to fall into the cracks of history? You'll find out in this week's episode!

The witch is going on strike unless her demands are met in THE HALLOWEEN THAT ALMOST WASN'T, a.k.a. THE NIGHT DRACULA SAVED THE WORLD, an award-winning holiday special from 1979 that aired on the Disney Channel every year until the mid-1990s. It's a goofy short that stars Judd Hirsch as Dracula, Mariette Hartley as The Witch and Henry Gibson as Igor, and to some of us, it's a nostalgic classic.

But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? This Halloween special may not have been a pilot for a television series but it used to play in heavy rotation each October, and now it's hard to find. Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are taking a look back at THE HALLOWEEN THAT ALMOST WASN'T to see it lives up to its reputation, or if it's just too ridiculous to work as entertainment today.

One year after the cancelation of TWIN PEAKS, the incredible team of David Lynch and Mark Frost got back together for a television series that didn't take America by storm. It was called ON THE AIR, and it reunited many of the cast members from TWIN PEAKS to help tell the story of a wacky 1950s variety show that becomes a hit entirely by accident.

It's one of the strangest sitcoms in television history, but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they look back at the career of David Lynch, and analyze every episode of ON THE AIR episode by episode to find out where it belongs in the filmmaker's canon, and decide once and for all whether it's genuinely funny or just plain odd.

They were created to convince kids to wear their seat belts, but they wound up making car crashes look freakin' awesome. They were THE INCREDIBLE CRASH DUMMIES, a group of wisecracking robots who could explode and put themselves back together again. The toys were a big hit, there was even a video game, and yet the odd pop culture legacy of THE INCREDIBLE CRASH DUMMIES probably hit its apex in 1993 with an animated special, co-written by BETTER OFF DEAD director "Savage" Steve Holland.

Did THE INCREDIBLE CRASH DUMMIES deserve to wind up in the fiery wreckage of television history, or was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they look at this truly strange one-off TV special and decide if the world would have been a better place if more episodes had been produced, and as they try to figure out how the heck the plot of THE INCREDIBLE CRASH DUMMIES makes any sense whatsoever.

Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, and HBO. You might think that if you put them all together you'd get the best TV series ever made. Instead you got VINYL, an ambitious and expensive drama about the music industry in the 1970s, which had an impressive cast and an amazing soundtrack, and which only lasted one season before getting canceled.

But was VINYL... canceled too soon? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they dissect the show and figure out what went right, what went wrong, and why VINYL seems so distractingly familiar to fans of MAD MEN and THE NEWSROOM.

It was 1975, and Warner Bros. had to do SOMETHING with BLAZING SADDLES or else they'd lose the rights. Their solution: shoot four whole seasons of a sitcom spin-off called BLACK BART, starring future Academy Award-winner Louis Gossett Jr., and only air a single episode. Loopholes! You gotta love 'em!

BLACK BART is one of the weirdest series in TV history, but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they delve into the strange saga of BLACK BART, and decide once and for all if the show deserved to be shelved forever or if it deserved to be seen.

Before there was WALKER, TEXAS RANGER, there was CHUCK NORRIS: KARATE KOMMANDOS! Back in 1986, martial arts superstar Chuck Norris hosted and starred in this action-adventure series about the animated adventures of Chuck Norris and Chuck Norris's sidekicks, like Kimo the Samurai Warrior, Tabe the Sumo Champion (he really likes food!) and the world's most annoying sidekick, Too Much.

Together, they are CHUCK NORRIS: KARATE KOMMANDOS, and they fight The Claw and The Super Ninja, who has a lifelong grudge against Chuck Norris for reasons never revealed, because CHUCK NORRIS: KARATE KOMMANDOS only lasted five episodes.

So was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they overanalyze every episode of this ridiculous 1980s kids show and ponder the lasting popularity of Chuck Norris himself.

Two years after he created LAW & ORDER, Dick Wolf co-created a sci-fi cop show about a macho detective and his sexy robot partner. MANN & MACHINE co-stars David Andrews and Yancy Butler as "Mann" and the machine, respectively, as they solve mysteries about far-fetched futuristic concepts like computerized dating services and a multi-year drought in Los Angeles.

But, was MANN & MACHINE canceled too soon? Join your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they poke around inside MANN & MACHINE's chassis, ponder the complexities of artificial intelligence and fantasize about a future world in which donuts are healthy and LaserDiscs are alive and well and still the home video format of choice.

It was a dark time - the eight years between BATMAN & ROBIN and BATMAN BEGINS - and The WB decided to fill it with the live-action superhero series BIRDS OF PREY. Created by Laeta Kalogridis (TERMINATOR GENISYS), with many episodes written by Melissa Rosenberg (TWILIGHT, JESSICA JONES), the short-lived BIRDS OF PREY teamed up Batman's daughter, Black Canary's daughter, the former Batgirl and Alfred Pennyworth against a new generation of supervillains in New Gotham, led by the first live-action version of Harley Quinn, played by Mia Sara (FERRIS BUELLER'S DAY OFF).

But was BIRDS OF PREY canceled too soon? Join your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they pluck away at this cult favorite series, and find out what was ahead of its time and what feels like a relic from the early 2000s. Was BIRDS OF PREY the show we needed, the show we deserved, or just the best we could get in 2002?

Canada is home to unspeakable horrors in the short-lived anthology series DARKNET, about a YouTube-like website that hosts videos of real-life violence. The six-episode show tells the stories behind these proto-creepypastas, an interconnected series of of tales. Some of them are terrifying, and some of them... well, let's just go with "not," shall we?

But was DARKNET canceled too soon? Your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined by Rebekah McKendry from Blumhouse.com and the Shock Waves podcast to examine every episode of this sometimes great, sometimes-not horror series. Together they also peel back the veil of internet film criticism, so get ready for our biggest episode yet!

At the height of the "Skinemax" boom of the 1990s, HOT SPRINGS HOTEL reigned supreme. It was a sitcom about oversexed jerks who ran a hotel and solved every problem (that they usually caused themselves) by having sex with it. Constant, very vanilla intercouse abounds as the cast of HOT SPRINGS HOTEL lives out their weird fantasies in their one and only season on Showtime.

But was HOT SPRINGS HOTEL canceled too soon? Your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold investigate this very strange Skinemax phenomenon, and sit through some very un-erotic episodes as they try to unlock the many mysteries of HOT SPRINGS HOTEL. It's our weirdest episode yet, and you won't want to miss it!

Everybody loves The Muppets, so why didn't everybody love THE MUPPETS? The new sitcom starring Jim Henson's popular puppet characters was one of the most anticipated TV shows of the 2015-2016 season, but a series of unusual creative decisions turned off the hardcore fans, and failed to bring in new audiences.

So, what the heck happened to THE MUPPETS? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined by special guest Alonso Duralde of Linoleum Knife (who is a bit hoarse when we recorded, but he got better) to talk about the history of The Muppets, what the new series did right, what it did horribly wrong, and where the franchise can go from here!

It's one of the most notorious one-episode wonders in television history: LOOKWELL, a sitcom that aired on NBC in July of 1991, and has gone on to become a cult classic.

Created by Conan O'Brien and Robert Smigel, and starring Adam West (BATMAN) and future Oscar nominee Todd Field (IN THE BEDROOM), the sitcom is about a former 1970s cop show star (West) who still thinks he's a detective, and uses his acting skills to solve crimes in his spare time. And he has a LOT of spare time. 

But did LOOKWELL deserve to last for only one episode, or was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? This week, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a closer look, and make the final call.

William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a listener request and review BUCKY O'HARE AND THE TOAD WARS, a cult classic cartoon series based on the comic book by Larry Hama and Michael Golden.

It's the time-honored tale of a pre-teen science nerd who teams up with anthropomorphic animals to save the universe from a race of toads who love bad television, but was it... canceled too soon? Bibbs and Witney review this short-lived cartoon from 1991, debate its rich philosophical subtext and predict what would have happened if BUCKY O'HARE AND THE TOAD WARS had lasted more than one season.
