"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. Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are here to hack into this cult classic series, dissect every absurd storyline and explain what the hell "The Jeremy Connection" is. You won't want to miss this episode!

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.

It's the exciting conclusion to our epic two-part episode! Last week we traveled across the universe with the sci-fi classic BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, and this week we're stuck on a stupid old Earth with GALACTICA 1980, the short-lived spin-off that couldn't decide if it was about time travel or super babies, and wound up stupider than a whole boxful of stupid.

Sure, it was ridiculous, but was GALACTICA 1980 really... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a deep dive into all the terrible decisions that made this BATTLESTAR GALACTICA follow-up one of the most ill-conceived tv shows in history, from the baffling plot points to the stock storylines and then, in the end, rather unexpectedly, one of the best episodes of sci-fi television... ever. Yes, really.

Few sci-fi television shows were more ambitious than BATTLESTAR GALACTICA, a sci-fi space epic from MANIMAL creator Glen A. Larson, whose expensive saga about evil robots chasing noble humans throughout the galaxy came out right on the heels of the game-changing blockbuster STAR WARS. Some people loved it, some people (like the creators of STAR WARS) didn't, but BATTLESTAR GALACTICA left a lasting impression on the genre that overshadowed its single, solitary season of television.

But was BATTLESTAR GALACTICA... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined by Scott Mantz from ACCESS HOLLYWOOD to guide you through every episode of the cult classic series and explain what worked, what failed, what worked better in the critically acclaimed 21st century reboot, and how much they HATE the show's kid sidekick Boxey.

And don't miss next week's exciting conclusion to this two-part episode, when they review the equally ill-fated BATTLESTAR GALACTICA spin-off: GALACTICA 1980!

She's one of the most popular, iconic and inspirational superheroes ever created, but even though Wonder Woman has a new blockbuster movie and had a hit tv series in the 1970s, she's also had some REALLY bad luck on television. Over the course of nearly 50 years there have been not one, not two, but THREE failed pilots for a live-action WONDER WOMAN series: including a wacky sitcom, a superspy adventure (without superpowers) and a David E. Kelley's recent, notorious misfire starring Adrianne Palicki (AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.).

But were all these WONDER WOMAN pilots really that bad, or were they... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined by Legion of Leia founder Jenna Busch as they guide you through the history of the superhero, why each of these WONDER WOMAN pilots catastrophically misunderstood the character, and finally what they all thought of the brand new WONDER WOMAN movie!

The history of television is full of horror anthology shows like THE TWILIGHT ZONE, TALES FROM THE CRYPT and THE OUTER LIMITS, but we've never seen anything quite like TERRORVISION. This low-low-low budget horror series about monsters, vampires and murders aired on the Lifetime network in the 1980s, and it's either absolutely terrifying or totally, utterly laughable.

But was TERRORVISION, the show that plays like 1980s porn directors were adapting half-baked campfire stories... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are here to put more thought into this weird series than anyone else ever has, and reveal its existence to a world that has for decades lived in blissful ignorance of TERRORVISION's existence. How bad could it have possibly been? Pretty darn bad...

A newspaper reporter with a suspiciously expensive house goes back in time to save lives, endanger his marriage and completely ignore his day job in JOURNEYMAN, a sci-fi series starring Kevin McKidd (STAR WARS REBELS), Gretchen Egolf (ROSWELL), Moon Bloodgood (FALLING SKIES) and Reed Diamond (DESIGNATED SURVIVOR), which aired for just 13 episodes in 2007.

Fans tried to save JOURNEYMAN by sending Rice-a-Roni to the network. It didn't work, but it does make you wonder... was this show CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined by Miss Movies herself, Brianne Chandler, to review this cult favorite series and figure out what went wrong, what went right, and where the series might have gone if it had lasted 100 episodes.

Everybody knows L.A. CONFIDENTIAL is one of the best movies of the 1990s, and maybe even one of the best movies ever made. But not everybody remembers that just a few years after James Ellroy's classic novel became a classic movie, it almost became a television series, written by Walon Green (THE WILD BUNCH) and starring Kiefer Sutherland (24), Anna Gunn (BREAKING BAD), Eric Roberts (A TALKING CAT?!) and Pruitt Taylor Vince (DEADWOOD).

The L.A. CONFIDENTIAL television series never made it past the pilot episode, but did it really deserve to get abandoned, or was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a look back at one of the most ambitious pilots they've ever encountered, revisit the classic movie, analyze the differences between the film and the pilot and the book, and much, much more!

The time has finally come to review one of the most notorious television series in history: MY MOTHER THE CAR, a 1960s sitcom with the stupidest premise imaginable, and a Freudian nightmare that could only happen in the deepest, darkest subconscious of the typical suburban male. Yes, Jerry Van Dyke's mother is a car... and she will spank him.

It's been called the worst tv show in history, but is it possible that MY MOTHER THE CAR was... CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold - and special guest Alonso Duralde (Linoleum Knife) - as they drink deeply of all 30 ill-conceived episodes of MY MOTHER THE CAR, the series they call "The HEAVEN'S GATE of Television."

How bad could it possibly be? Guess what: it's worse.

The 1990s were full of failed sci-fi television series, but few ever reached the heights of EARTH 2, an expensive show about colonizing an alien planet that lasted one whole season on NBC. EARTH 2 won an Emmy Award and debuted as one of the highest rated series of television, and somehow it concluded as one of the lowest. 

What the heck happened to EARTH 2, and was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold trek all the way to the farthest reaches of the galaxy to bring back the answers. Listen up as they guide you through the whole series of EARTH 2, pondering the show's many mysteries, studying its many stupidities, and considering the deeper ramifications of teleport love spiders, alien cannibalization and much, much more.

After Joel Hodgson left MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, but before he rebooted MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000, he invented a new form of television called THE TV WHEEL. This complicated sketch comedy show rotated a set in front of a stationary camera, challenging the limits of the medium and testing the comedic talents of future superstars like Judd Apatow (KNOCKED UP), Paul Feig (BRIDESMAIDS), David Cross (MR. SHOW), Doug Benson (DOUG LOVES MOVIES) and more.

The pilot for THE TV WHEEL was rejected by HBO and only aired once on Comedy Central. But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold look back at the ambitious sketch comedy series, walk you through every single joke, and help analyze this show's place in Joel Hodgson's fascinating career. How does it compare to MST3K? What was the value of this technology, and where did THE TV WHEEL go wrong?

Fans of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 know all about MASTER NINJA, a series of "movies" starring Lee Van Cleef as an old white ninja and Timothy Van Patten as his hunky hamster-enthusiast sidekick. But before MASTER NINJA got riffed on by MST3K it ran for an entire season on NBC in 1984, under the title of THE MASTER, and featured guest stars like Demi Moore (GHOST), Crystal Bernard (WINGS), George Lazenby (ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE) and several future stars of STAR TREK.

But was THE MASTER... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold guide you through all 13 episodes of the notorious television series, including nine shows that MST3K never got to, and guide you through the weird wide world of 1980s fetishes - like aerobics classes, trucker lingo, ninjas - via this one strange action-adventure series where they all (briefly) collided.

There are more tv shows about lawyers than we could possibly care to count, but almost all of them lasted longer than DOUBT, a courtroom dramedy starring Katherine Heigl (GREY'S ANATOMY), Laverne Cox (ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK) and Elliott Gould (MASH), which was canceled last February after airing only two episodes. Katherine Heigl plays a lawyer who's in love with her murder suspect client, and nobody seemed to care.

How bad could DOUBT possibly be? And was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are on the case, dissecting both episodes of DOUBT to find out why nobody tuned in, what could have saved the series, and figuring out how this rapidly-canceled series would have ended.

The year was 1993, and STAR TREK ruled the airwaves. That was good news for Trekkies but bad news for SPACE RANGERS. When this blue collar sci-fi series debuted, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION was still on the air and STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE had only premiered three days earlier. Audiences just weren't interested in watching SPACE RANGERS, a lower budgeted series that was aired out of order, so it was hard to even tell what was going on.

SPACE RANGERS lasted only six episodes, but was it... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are here to walk you through the intergalactic adventures of this ragtag band of misfits, who fight aliens, defend aliens, annoy aliens and are annoyed by aliens in a television series created by Pen Densham (ROBIN HOOD: PRINCE OF THIEVES). How cheap was this cheap, cheap show? And was it really as bad as it looked?

In the history of television, there are few shows that have a more embarrassing reputation than MANIMAL, an NBC series that ran for eight short episodes in 1983, and starred Simon MacCorkindale as a crimefighter who turns into a panther, a hawk, and any other animal the situation requires. Audiences balked, critics laughed, and MANIMAL became a pop culture punchline that endures to this very day.

But was MANIMAL... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are on the case! They're breaking down every absurd episode of MANIMAL and giving this infamous dud the critical attention it was always denied, asking the important questions about animal transformations that nobody ever asked (probably). Plus, they've also tracked down the episode of the long-forgotten superhero series NIGHTMAN which - fifteen years after the cancelation of MANIMAL - finally wrapped up the superhero's story... badly.

The cult comedies BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE and BILL AND TED'S BOGUS JOURNEY got turned into a short-lived live-action sitcom in the early 1990s! The pilot was written by the creators of BETTER OFF DEAD and SEX AND THE CITY, and the series found the lovable goofballs traveling back in time to learn how to rock from Elvis Presley, how to woo ladies from Casanova, and how to do math from Albert Einstein.

BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURES only lasted seven episodes on Fox in 1992, but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold delve into this forgotten television series to figure out what went wrong, what went right, and why one of these episodes is hopelessly and offensively ignorant. If you ever wondered how excellent BILL AND TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURES were, this is the podcast for you!

Fifty years ago, hundreds of Alcatraz inmates disappeared. Now, the most notorious criminals in American history are loose in San Francisco, where a tough cop and a comic book nerd team up to find them and discover the real story behind their magic silver blood and super-duper mystery keys. ALCATRAZ was a weird, weird, weird show from Bad Robot, the makers of LOST, that was canceled after only one short season.

But was ALCATRAZ... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are on the case! They'll track down every awesome ALCATRAZ guest star - like MR. ROBOT's Rami Malek, MOONLIGHT's Mahershala Ali and LUKE CAGE's Theo Rossi - and delve into every one of this series' lingering mysteries. Was ALCATRAZ a good cop show that suffered from too many prison drama flashbacks? Was it a good prison drama that suffered from too many cop show flashforwards? We're about to find out.

David Zucker, Jim Abrahams and Jerry Zucker took the comedy world by storm with AIRPLANE! in 1980, and two years later they brought their rapid-fire signature schtick to ABC with POLICE SQUAD!, a parody of self-serious cop shows starring Leslie Nielsen as Lt. Frank Drebin, a cop who lives in a wacky world where nobody knows how silly they are.

POLICE SQUAD! became a cult favorite and eventually spawned three blockbuster spin-off movies called THE NAKED GUN, but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold have invited 80s All Over co-host Drew McWeeny to help explain the history of POLICE SQUAD!, why it's better than THE NAKED GUN and why Drew McWeeny picked a fight with William Bibbiani on the Movie Trivia Schmoedown.
