The late, great David Cassidy was a tv star, a pop star, a teen heartthrob and - for one short season - a hard-boiled undercover cop infiltrating drug dealers, gun runners, baby smugglers and high-octane grocery store thieves. You know, like you do.

But let's be honest here... was the pop culture curio DAVID CASSIDY: MAN UNDERCOVER canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold delve into every episode and discover that this seemingly absurd TV series was 21 JUMP STREET a decade before 21 JUMP STREET, and POINT BREAK a decade-and-a-half before POINT BREAK, and THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS over two decades before THE FAST AND FURIOUS.

Yes, really.

Our very special JUSTICE MONTH OF JUSTICE concludes with a superhero series that pretty much everybody forgot about: HUMAN TARGET, starring rock legend Rick Springfield as a man who can impersonate anybody, and who uses that technology to impersonate the people he saves and get creepy kicks out of living their private lives.

Rick Springfield wishes he had Jessie's Girl, but does he wish that HUMAN TARGET wasn't... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dive into the original TV adaptation of HUMAN TARGET to find out what works, what needed work, and why this just might be one of the worst ideas for a superhero show ever.

There have been a lot of tv shows based on DC superheroes, but there's never been one quite like AMETHYST - PRINCESS OF GEM WORLD! This short animated series about a teenager dragged into the world of her video game satirized RPG's, anime and the fantasy genre, all while telling the story of a good, old-fashioned heroes journey.

But was the Cartoon Network/DC Nation series AMETHYST - PRINCESS OF GEM WORLD... canceled too soon?! We've got producer/director Brianne Drouhard in the studio to tell us how the show came to be, what the should would have become, and tons of stories about the production. Join Brianne Drouhard and your hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as our JUSTICE MONTH OF JUSTICE continues!

And hey! Brianne Drouhard is also the creator of the web comic HARPY GEE! Check out the ongoing tale at HarpyGee.com, and follow Brianne on Twitter at @PotatoFarmGirl!

SMALLVILLE was the only live-action DC superhero show in town for many years, but did you know it almost had a sister series about the adventures of AQUAMAN? From producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar came MERCY REEF, a superhero show that's basically FLIPPER but if the dolphin and the human were the same guy.

MERCY REEF (aka AQUAMAN) never made it past this legendary pilot episode, but was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? This week, GEEK HISTORY LESSON podcast co-hosts Ashley V. Robinson and Jason Inman join your usual hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold to fish this pilot out of the murk, dissect it, and find out just how close we came to getting a good Aquaman tv series as our JUSTICE MONTH OF JUSTICE continues!

And hey! Ashley V. Robinson and Jason Inman are also the co-creators of the upcoming comic book JUPITER JET, in stores December 6, 2017! Pre-order it now, and follow them on Twitter at @AshleyVRobinson, @Jawiin, @GHLPodcast and @JupiterJetComic!

Before there was JUSTICE LEAGUE, before there was THE FLASH, there was... THE FLASH, an expensive and ambitious live-action superhero series that emerged from the wake of Tim Burton's BATMAN, and bridged the gap between the retro comic book adaptations of yore and a new generation of faithful tv shows and movies.

It's got a huge cult following that continues to this day, but was THE FLASH really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take you deep into all the episodes, guest stars and unexpected connections to shows like BIRDS OF PREY and BATMAN: THE ANIMATED SERIES as their JUSTICE MONTH OF JUSTICE continues!

Welcome... to the JUSTICE MONTH OF JUSTICE! All this month on CANCELED TOO SOON we're reviewing failed DC superhero tv shows, and we're starting off with one of the most notorious pilots in tv history, the live-action JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA from 1997, about a gang of jokester superheroes with cheap costumes and cheaper visual effects.

But could the JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA tv pilot actually be better than the JUSTICE LEAGUE live-action movie? Probably not, but let's at least see if it was CANCELED TOO SOON! Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they break down the whole episode, moment by moment, and reveal why it failed, and why - maybe - it's not as bad as you've heard.

The year was 1996, and MELROSE PLACE and BEVERLY HILLS 90210 ruled the world. But for some reason the world wasn't interested in vampires yet. So it was that KINDRED: THE EMBRACED, Aaron Spelling's ambitious/convoluted adaptation of the supernatural role-playing game VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE, debuted on Fox, lasted one month, and disappeared forever.

Or did it? Fans of KINDRED: THE EMBRACED have kept this soap opera alive for decades, and now the time has come to find out, once and for all, if it was... CANCELED TOO SOON! Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are here to walk you through every good idea, every bad idea, every monstrous cliché and every weird "before they were famous" cameo that KINDRED: THE EMBRACED has to offer, as our Monstober comes to a close!!

Monstober continues! Remember when Dracula changed his name to "Big D" and recruited a teenaged vampire, werewolf and Frankenstein monster to become crappy superheroes and fight the villainous Dr. Dred and his dopey henchpersons in O.G.R.E. (The Organization of Generally Rotten Enterprises)? You don't? Well, lucky you.

Throw your nostalgia away, because this week on CANCELED TOO SOON we're going to explain way the 1980s basically sucked, and how much of the blame lands squarely on the shoulders of Hanna-Barbera. William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold walk you through every colossally stupid episode and, finally, ask the only question that matters: Was DRAK PACK canceled too soon?

So get this: a college student installs a computer in a wax museum and the electric vibrations bring Dracula, Frankenstein and The Wolf Man back to life. Together they fight campy supervillains who would have been rejected from the 1960s BATMAN tv series in MONSTER SQUAD, a live-action Saturday morning superhero series that has nothing whatsoever to do with the cult classic movie THE MONSTER SQUAD, even though it sounds like it probably does.

Was MONSTER SQUAD... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold put every episode of this bizarre pop culture curio on the slab and dissect it, describing every bizarre (and sometimes offensive) supervillain and having an extended debate on the differences between "monsters" and "ghoulies" as our HALLOWEEN MONSTOBER continues!

Alfred Hitchcock's PSYCHO is one of the most important motion pictures in history, changing the cinematic and horror landscapes and giving birth to sequels, a remake, a hit TV series and - when nobody was looking - the failed 1987 TV pilot BATES MOTEL starring Bud Cord (HAROLD & MAUDE) and Lori Petty (TANK GIRL), in which Norman Bates' best friend inherits the Bates Motel and finds out that it's haunted by kindly ghosts.

Yup, it's a PSYCHO tv series without Norman Bates in it. And with ghosts. BATES MOTEL only lasted one episode, but was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold talk you through this bizarre and forgotten piece of TV history, as our Halloween Horror Month begins!

One of the most acclaimed new shows of the 2016/2017 season was SWEET/VICIOUS, an MTV series about two college students who become vigilantes to avenge the victims of sex crimes on their campus. SWEET/VICIOUS tackled serious issues with sensitivity, humor and exciting action, and even though it's one of the most topical shows in years, nobody watched it.

Was SWEET/VICIOUS... canceled too soon? Collider staff writer Christina Radish joins hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold to walk you through every episode of the series, highlight what worked, and point out a few missteps the series may have made as early as episode one, and discuss what would have happened on SWEET/VICIOUS if it had lasted as long as the creator intended.

You loved her when she was AGENT CARTER, but Hayley Atwell's got an even tougher job in the crime-solving procedural series CONVICTION. The former superspy now plays the daughter of an ex-president, who gets arrested for cocaine possession, and punished by being put in charge of the Conviction Integrity Unit, which looks into old cases and tries to determine, once and for all, if justice had really been served.

CONVICTION only lasted thirteen episodes last season, but was it really... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold pick this fan favorite series apart, episode by episode, much in the same way Hayley Atwell does with old murder cases. What worked? What sucked? And was Hayley Atwell the show's saving grace, or was she woefully miscast?

Everyone loves THE WIZARD OF OZ, so of course they made it "badass". From the minds behind shows that were canceled after only one season like SIBERIA, DRACULA and AMERICAN GOTHIC came the sure-fire hit EMERALD CITY, a grim 'n' gritty reboot of L. Frank Baum's fantasy classic, which is now about death and racism and climate change and skinless dudes and warriors wearing cat hats and crucified amnesiacs and witches who nunneries and brothels.

And yet somehow this sure-fire smash from the director of THE IMMORTALS and MIRROR MIRROR was canceled after only one season. But was EMERALD CITY... canceled too soon?

Rachel Cushing from the MOVIE TRIVIA SCHMOEDOWN is here to help William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review this ambitious but strange television event that failed to ignite the imagination of a generation, but might have been kinda neat. Maybe.

Katherine Heigl, Elliott Gould and Laverne Cox starred in DOUBT, a legal dramedy on CBS that was canceled after only two episodes. So we reviewed it after only two episodes. Then CBS aired eleven more episodes over the summer, so we have to come back and do it all over again.

Is it possible we were wrong, and that DOUBT wasn't... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are re-opening the case, revealing how much better DOUBT got as time went on, why the big cliffhanger revelation makes no sense whatsoever, and why one of our hosts has completely changed their mind about this show after our original review.

A grown woman gets a visit from her childhood imaginary friend in DROP DEAD FRED, a movie that does the same thing as IMAGINARY MARY but a heck of a lot better. But we have to review IMAGINARY MARY anyway, so let's do that. It stars Jenna Elfman as Alice, a woman struggling with her adulthood, and Rachel Dratch as the voice of her imaginary friend, Mary. 

Was IMAGINARY MARY canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold run down every clichéd episode of this short-lived series to tell you what worked, what flopped, and how a perfectly good idea for a series about an imaginary best friend got transformed into a show that has almost to do with an imaginary best friend. (Also, this show had a surprisingly depressing finale, so there's that.)

One of the most acclaimed new shows of the 2016/2017 television season didn't make it past ten episodes. The show was PITCH, it starred Kylie Bunbury (UNDER THE DOME) as the first female player in Major League Baseball, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (SAVED BY THE BELL) as the baseball veteran who becomes her mentor... and possibly something more.

PITCH was one of the most talked about television series of the last year, but was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold walk you through the whole series to figure out what hit a homer, what struck out, and how the heck you can make a pilot episode about a ghost dad and never, ever mention it again.

Why make just one parody of a crime show when you can make THREE of them? That's the premise of DANGER THEATRE, a comedic anthology series from the director of WAYNE'S WORLD that ran on the Fox network for only seven episodes, and starred Diedrich Bader as the motorcycle-riding do-gooder THE SEARCHER, Adam West as the leader of Hawaii's TROPICAL PUNCH division, and Todd Field and Ricky Harris as hip tinseltown detectives in 357 MARINA DEL REY.

Three comedy crime shows, narrated by Robert Vaughn, that tried to take a bite out of the butt of crime. But was DANGER THEATRE... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold examine all three of these fake shows to determine which were hits, which were duds, and why Diedrich Bader is just so darned wonderful.

"Did you ever wonder what happens AFTER the game ends?" Welcome to GAME OVER, an animated series from the ill-fated UPN network about what video game characters do when they're not raiding tombs or racing cars. It starred Patrick Warburton (THE VENTURE BROTHERS), Lucy Liu (ELEMENTARY) and Artie Lang (MADTV) and it was the lowest rated television series of the 2003-2004 season.

Nobody saw GAME OVER, which means nobody knows if it was... CANCELED TOO SOON! Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold unearth this forgotten animated series and figure out why nobody watched GAME OVER, and whether the show's mixture of ancient sitcom clichés and brand new video game clichés works, or fails miserably.

YOU DON'T KNOW JACK was one of the most popular computer games of the 1990s, mixing subversive humor, highbrow trivia questions and fast-paced gameplay to produce a one-of-a-kind video game experience. It was only a matter of time before YOU DON'T KNOW JACK would be turned into a live-action game show hosted by Paul Reubens (PEE-WEE'S PLAYHOUSE). And it was only a matter of six episodes before the ABC network realized this series just wasn't working.

YOU DON'T KNOW JACK was full of bad jokes, mariachi bands and deadly ninjas... but as it CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are here to review this bizarre television misfire in all of its ill-conceived, occasionally hilarious glory. It's the first game show we've ever reviewed on CANCELED TOO SOON. Hopefully, it won't be the last!

Superhero shows about defenders are nothing new. In fact, 25 years before MARVEL'S THE DEFENDERS debuted on Netflix we already had THE DEFENDERS OF DYNATRON CITY, an animated superhero pilot from the creators of MANIAC MANSION, THE SECRET OF MONKEY ISLAND and SAM & MAX: FREELANCE POLICE!!!, starring Whoopi Goldberg, Tim Curry and Christopher Walken... before Christopher Walken was recast for some reason.

But was the only animated superhero pilot with an oversexed girl with a buzz saw for legs... CANCELED TOO SOON? Find out when film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review THE DEFENDERS OF DYNATRON CITY in all of its mutagen slurping, rocket head decapitating, robot dancing glory. It's one of the weirdest superhero shows in history. Now let's find out if it was one of the best.

Hot on the heels of WARGAMES came WHIZ KIDS, a primetime television series about teenaged computer experts who hack the NSA, rob graves, find Elvis Presley alive and well (sorta) and even talk to dolphins. It's a tv series that gave kids so much unethical power that critics declared it morally irresponsible, and it only lasted one season as a result.

WHIZ KIDS was ahead of its time, but that doesn't necessarily mean it was... CANCELED TOO SOON.

Why make three televisions shows when you could make one for three times the price? From the developer of THE INCREDIBLE HULK, THE BIONIC WOMAN and V comes the incredibly ambitious CLIFFHANGERS!, a television series consisting of three wildly different, serialized stories called STOP SUSAN WILLIAMS (about a plucky reporter investigating a deadly conspiracy), THE SECRET EMPIRE (about a cowboy who discovers a secret society of aliens living underneath Wyoming) and THE CURSE OF DRACULA (about the curse of Dracula).

It's a really cool idea, but the question remains: was CLIFFHANGERS! canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dive into each of the three crazy, action-packed, unexpectedly romantic mini-shows packed inside of CLIFFHANGERS! and figure out what works, what doesn't, and why such a cool-sounding tv series failed to find an audience in 1979. (Hint: It aired opposite HAPPY DAYS.)

He's a cop with a past. His partner is a talking dog with a flatulence problem. Together they solve murders and sex crimes in TEQUILA AND BONETTI, one of the weirdest television shows we've ever reviewed on CANCELED TOO SOON, which can't tell if it's a family-friendly comedy or a horrifying crime saga.

You won't believe this series exists, folks, but exist it does. The only question now is, was TEQUILA AND BONETTI... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold talk you through every surreal episode of this absurd television series, try to figure out how talking dogs work, and take you back in time to the disturbing real life events that made TEQUILA AND BONETTI one of the most poorly-timed tv shows in history.

Take every wacky comic relief stereotype, give them each a badge and a gun, and put them to work at the some police station and you get THE LAST PRECINCT, a quirky POLICE ACADEMY knockoff starring Adam West (BATMAN), Ernie Hudson (GHOSTBUSTERS) and James Cromwell (L.A. CONFIDENTIAL), as well as Randi Brooks as Mel, who - as near as we can tell - might potentially have been the first transgender character with a leading role on a network television series.

THE LAST PRECINCT was simultaneously of its time, ahead of its time and behind the times... but was it CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold walk you through every wacky episode, every dumb joke, and everything about THE LAST PRECINCT that kind of works if you look at it the right way. There's a lot to love and a lot to hate about this short-lived tv misfire from the creators of THE A-TEAM, HUNTER and WISEGUY!

What would you do if you could travel between three alternate realities, and all of them were kind of hard to look at? You'll find out in CHARLIE JADE, an ambitious Canadian/South African co-production about a private detective solving mysteries in parallel dimensions, and running afoul of the truly bizarre supervillain 01 Boxer, who is either the greatest bad guy we've ever come across... or the absolute worst.

With 20 episodes to its credit (not counting a recap episode), CHARLIE JADE is one of the longest shows we've ever reviewed. But was it CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are here to figure out what the heck is really going on in this very unusual sci-fi series.
