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!

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.
