Tarzan is one of the most popular characters in the history of popular culture... but not this time. The WB version of TARZAN stars Travis Fimmel (VIKINGS) and Sarah Wayne Callies (THE WALKING DEAD) as Tarzan and Jane, whose modern day adventures take place in New York City, against the backdrop of corporate conspiracies by Tarzan's uncle, played by Mitch Pileggi, and his aunt, played by Lucy Lawless.

It's a shirtless, shoeless, bodice-ripping vigilante love story from Eric Kripke, who would go on to create the cult shows SUPERNATURAL and TIMELESS. But was this particular version of TARZAN... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore this failed TV show to figure out how Tarzan's story could work today, and why it usually doesn't.

Ralph Bakshi became a legend by directing animation for adults, like LORD OF THE RINGS and FRITZ THE CAT, but in 1988 he also directed the pilot episode for a Nickelodeon television series about a little girl trapped in a magical land. Everything everyone ever lost comes to life in Tattertown, including Debbie's doll Muffet, who rebels against her owner and tries to destroy Christmas!

It's a chaotic and seedy anecdote in Ralph Bakshi's career, but was CHRISTMAS IN TATTERTOWN really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold guide you through Bakshi's career and this strange TV show, which became a Christmas special after the network passed on it, and in which the villain is quite obviously the moral superior to the hero.

STAR TREK was all the rage in the late 1990s, and a lot of other shows were eager to rip off the classic sci-fi show's formula, with interstellar exploration, major moral conundrums, old-fashioned naval wars in space and a bit of sexual tension. Hence, we got a pilot like STAR COMMAND, in which gorgeous 20-somethings take over their vessel when the captains die, and wage war against the bad guys all by themselves.

It's got lasers! It's got Morgan Fairchild! It's got virtual reality porn! But was STAR COMMAND really... CANCELED TOO SOON?

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold delve into this forgotten sci-fi pilot to dissect the whole STAR TREK knockoff genre, share their favorite TREK-themed memories, and explain why STAR COMMAND should have been called SPACE SHOW: THE SHOW.

The Silver Surfer is one of the strangest Marvel superheroes (and that's really saying something). He's a nearly omnipotent shiny space guy who holds himself responsible for the death of billions, who now wanders the cosmos pondering enormous philosophical questions and trying, and often failing, to redeem himself. And somehow he got his own Saturday morning cartoon series, with all of those lofty ideas and depressing themes intact.

SILVER SURFER lasted only one season, but was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review the 1998 animated series, marvel at its mythic ambition, and try to make some kind of sense out of Marvel's mind-boggling theology, as our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS concludes!

The year was 1998, and Marvel had a big hit on their hands with the movie BLADE. But they also had one of the most notorious bombs ever with NICK FURY: AGENT OF SHIELD, a cheesy failed TV pilot starring David Hasselhoff from BAYWATCH as a cigar-chomping, jokester super spy who fights overacting Nazi bad guys who want to destroy the world with a super virus.

NICK FURY: AGENT OF SHIELD is one of Marvel's biggest misfires, but could it be that it was actually... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take you through the weird origin of this weird project, and consider the possibility that campy superheroes are just as valid as the serious ones, as our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS CONTINUES!

The Marvel superhero BLADE is half man, half vampire, all badass. And after he starred in his groundbreaking movie trilogy, which spawned the superhero movie boom we're stilling living in today, he made the journey to the small screen with BLADE: THE SERIES, starring Sticky Fingaz as the title hero, Jill Wagner as an undercover vampire, and Richard Roundtree as Blade's dad!

It was action-packed and full of blood, gore and nudity, but was BLADE: THE SERIES... Canceled Too Soon? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dissect the undead corpse of this short-lived action show from the Spike channel, and reveal what works, what sucks, and why BLADE: THE SERIES is basically just a remake of Alfred Hitchcock's NOTORIOUS, as our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS continues!

The late, legendary Stan Lee helped reboot and recreate the superhero SOLARMAN for a very, very, VERY short-lived comic book series, and a failed cartoon pilot about dweeby comic book nerd whose dad wishes he was more into sports, and who turns into a fantabulous hunk of a hero! He teams up with a stupid robot and fights a bad guy who uses a death ray that destroys suns to save up for the day when he REALLY tries to be evil.

SOLARMAN can be easily defeated by a slightly cloudy day, but was he... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold delve into this failed pilot, which was made in 1986, released in 1989 and then re-released in 1992 (just in case), and figure out what the heck is up with it. Is SOLARMAN a great hero who got overlooked by history, or is he just kinda lame?

You'll find out as our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS continues!

Our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS turned tragic this week, so we begin our episode with a eulogy for Stan Lee, the co-creator of most of our most beloved Marvel comics characters, and eventually created a multimedia empire. But along that journey to box office billions there many missteps, and boy howdy, was GENERATION X one of them.

This failed pilot for a live-action, teen-oriented X-MEN primetime series was a gaudy fiasco that has more in common with Batman begins than the GENERATION X comic books, and it never made it past the pilot episode.

But was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold walk you through this weird mish-mash of 1990s hipness on the latest episode, as chosen by our Patreon subscribers!

Not every chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe was a success. Despite the best efforts of Disney, Marvel and ABC, MARVEL'S INHUMANS takes some of the most fascinating characters from the Fantastic Four comics and drops them in the middle of a boring adventure series about classist a-holes who oppress an entire civilization into manual labor because their powers aren't cool enough... and they're the GOOD guys.

Was MARVEL'S INHUMANS a great idea ruined by bad filmmaking, or was it doomed from the very start? And most importantly, was it CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold give you the troubled history of this Mighty Marvel Misfire and break down what works, what broke down, and why nobody cared.

Our MARVELOUS MONTH OF MARVELS begins! Marvel movies and Marvel tv shows rule the world today, but there was a time when the comic book company struggled to get into the multimedia marketplace.

And so we got weird esoteric ephemera like the animated series FRED AND BARNEY MEET THE THING, in which the rocky superhero from the Fantastic Four goes on solo adventures with a group of teenagers, and turns into a teenager himself, using magic rings and a rhyming enchantment.

Does this Thing thing do its thing? And was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics Bibbs and Witney delve deep into Ben Grimm's bizarre existential crisis and analyze every dumb thing about this insanely dumb show, which also features anthropomorphic cats and lots and lots and LOTS of octopi.

One of the greatest reporters of all time could hardly publish a word. He's KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER, he's played by Darren McGavin, and every week he uncovers another supernatural or sci-fi monster, and every week the evidence vanishes or the government shuts him down.

If that sounds familiar, it's because KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER was one of the biggest influences on THE X-FILES. But it only lasted one season! Was it CANCELED TOO SOON?

Film critics William Bibbiani explore the iconic failed television series episode by episode, monster by monster, to discover what works, what sucks, and why KOLCHAK desperately needs a reboot.

The greatest horror movie TV host of all time, Elvira, almost had her own sitcom in the 1990s! It was called THE ELVIRA SHOW, it co-starred actors from TWIN PEAKS, HEROES and SOAP, and it was all about the wacky and salacious adventures of an alluring witch keeping her supernatural powers a secret in Kansas.

It's bright, it's sexy, it's funny as hell... but it only lasted one episode. Was it CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold delve into the comedy brilliance of Elvira, the best and worst jokes from THE ELVIRA SHOW (if anyone can tell the difference), and more! It's another great episode of SCARYTOBER goodness!

The supernatural soap opera DARK SHADOWS inspired legions of cult followers, a big budget movie from Tim Burton, and a failed 1991 television reboot starring Ben Cross, Joanna Going, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and big screen legends like Jean Simmons and Barbara Steele!

DARK SHADOWS was an epic tale of love and death, starring vampires and ghosts and witches and what the heck, let's throw a little time travel in there, just for giggles. But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dive deep into the shadows to figure out what works, what doesn't, and what they'd do if they found a mysterious coffin covered in chains, as our monthlong SCARYTOBER event continues!

Shelley Duvall ruled cable television in the 1980s, with her award-winning kids show FAERIE TALE THEATRE, which adapted classic faerie tales with all-star casts, and warmed the hearts of an entire generation of kids. But a lot of those kids never knew about her short-lived spin-off series NIGHTMARE CLASSICS, which adapted timeless tales of terror like THE TURN OF THE SCREW, CARMILLA and THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JEKYLL AND MR. HYDE into hour-long shows for teen audiences.

NIGHTMARE CLASSICS stars Amy Irving, David Hemmings, Roddy McDowell, Meg Tilly, Ione Sky, Laura Dern, Rue McClanahan, C. Thomas Howell, John Stockwell and Daphne Zuniga. But was it really CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore this forgotten horror series in the first installment of SCARYTOBER, a whole month dedicated to short-lived scary shows!

What happens when someone runs for public office as a publicity stunt and accidentally gets elected? You'll find out in... real life, but also in THE MAYOR, a short-lived sitcom starring Brandon Micheal Hall as a young hip hop artist who gets a crash course in civics when he ends up running a whole town all by himself... as well as his best friends, GLEE's Lea Michele, COMMUNITY's Yvette Nicole Brown, and David Spade (of David Spade fame).

THE MAYOR was timely, maybe to a fault, but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore a show that is atypically positive about politics, and why that makes for a good sitcom but may have been exactly the opposite of what audiences were interested in. It's the last episode of our SUDDENLY, LAST SEASON theme month, and it was selected by our Patrons!

It's the distant future, the year 1999, and BLOOD DRIVE is a hit television series starring real life serial killers who race across the country, in cars that run on human blood instead of gasoline. With post-apocalyptic monsters at every pit stop, can a goody two-shoes cop and his murderous partner hit the finish line before their heads blow up? 

BLOOD DRIVE is the most GRINDHOUSE television series we've ever seen. But does it belong in the past, or was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review the SyFy original series that nobody talked about, even though they should have, with episodes about sex zombies, 1950s diner cannibals, and an adorable little town called "Cronenburgh," as our SUDDENLY LAST SEASON month continues!

A 21st century film critic decides to live his life 100% by The Bible in LIVING BIBLICALLY, a sitcom that tried to explore the complexities of Christianity in a clich├ęd sitcom format, complete with a doofus married to an implausible awesome wife, a pair of mismatched best friends (a priest and a rabbi), and a high-paid journalism job that normally would have been downsized years ago.

LIVING BIBLICALLY was an odd and controversial series, but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Actual film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore the best and worst ideas in this eccentric sitcom and decide once and for all just heavenly it is. It's the latest episode of our SUDDENLY LAST SEASON month, dedicated entirely to recently canceled shows!

Our SUDDENLY, LAST SEASON month begins! Every week in September we're review recently canceled television shows, and we're starting with a doozy: WILL, about a hunky young William Shakespeare, who rises to fame in Elizabethan England while having sexy sex, doing druggy drugs and singing James Brown songs.

It's wild! It's wacky! But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review this failed TNT series and see how it stacks up against actual Shakespeare plays, actual history, SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE and ROMEO+JULIET. Why is it fun? Why is it laughable? And was it good, bad, or so bad it's wonderfully good?

From the writer of DIE HARD, 48 HOURS and COMMANDO comes the failed TV pilot for K-9000, starring Chris Mulkey (TWIN PEAKS) as a tough cop who accidentally gets a microchip shot into his brain which allows him to hear the thoughts of a cyborg dog.

It's hard to imagine a TV show with that premise not being a big hit, but K-9000 got canceled immediately anyway. The question is, what it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold figure out what the heck happened, what went wrong, and why cops never seem to team up with crime-solving cats in this all-new episode of the podcast.

Everyone remembers GOOSEBUMPS, but let's take a moment to reflect on the popular kids horror novel series BONE CHILLERS, which inspired a one-season wonder television series on ABC, staring Charles Fleischer (WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT) and Linda Cardellini (FREAKS AND GEEKS). It's a spooky, kooky, and totally manic live-action series about teenagers who go to a horrifying high school where frog monsters, mummies, topiary animals, giant spiders and the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe roam the halls.

Disney bought ABC and canceled BONE CHILLERS, even though the ratings were good. But was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold marvel at this kids show's unexpectedly impressive cult movie credentials, and sink into the ominous morass of sugar-high kids television, where everything is ramped up to 11, and kids rule, frequently at the expense of adults, who drool.

Heather Graham stars in EMILY'S REASONS WHY NOT, a heavily promoted sitcom that was going to be one of ABC's flagship TV shows in 2006... until it was canceled, after only one episode. What the heck? How do you get canceled after only one episode, when the network spent millions on marketing?

What did you do, EMILY'S REASONS WHY NOT? And were you truly CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold delve into one of the most notorious TV failures in history, and figure out why the pilot episode scared off the network, why the remaining episodes weren't any better, and why EMILY'S REASONS WHY NOT has the exact same problems as the hit series SEINFELD.

Either Amy and Raquel are mentally ill, or there really are demons possessing people in England, and they really do need to be beaten up with sticks. That's the plot of CRAZYHEAD, a horror-comedy series from the producer of MERLIN and FUTURE MAN, and it's got a lot of promise.

Does CRAZYHEAD live up to that promise? Was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dissect the short-lived Netflix/E4 production and figure out what makes the show distinctive, what makes it just like every other horror-comedy series, and why the show is so obsessed with demon butts.

A hunky time traveler accidentally kidnaps a history-obsessed young kid and takes him on a never-ending adventure through time in VOYAGERS! The ambitious but short-lived primetime series starred the dashing John-Erik Hexum and the precocious Meeno Peluce, and a host of guest stars playing famous figures, like Jonathan Frakes (as Charles Lindbergh), Gregg Henry (as Teddy Roosevelt) and Julia Duffy (as Nellie Bly).

It's adventurous! It's educational! But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold on an adventure across space and time as they review every episode of VOYAGERS!, a.k.a. America's answer to DOCTOR WHO, and explain why John-Erik Hexum should have been one of the biggest stars in the world (and why, tragically, that never came to pass).

Rodney Dangerfield was one of the most beloved standup comedians in history, a master jokester whose self-deprecating persona was practically tailor-made for sitcoms. But when the time came to make one, for some reason it was all about teenaged Rodney Dangerfield fan who had the power to summon (and teleport) Dangerfield from wherever he happened to be at the moment, to give him relationship advice.

Believe it or not, with a premise like that, WHERE'S RODNEY never made it past the pilot episode. But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold walk you through this baffling episode of television and suss out how it fits into Rodney Dangerfield's legendary career and why nothing about it works, except for a single, solitary moment of perfection.

After he was MACGYVER, but before he was STARGATE SG-1, Richard Dean Anderson was a LEGEND. In this short-lived steampunk western series, Anderson played a hard-drinking coward who writes books about Nicodemus Legend, a saintly hero who wields extraordinary technology, courtesy of a sci-fi scientist inspired by Nikola Tesla, played by John de Lancie from STAR TREK.

LEGEND was overshadowed by the overall failure of its network, UPN, and from the more popular one-season steampunk western series THE ADVENTURES OF BRISCO COUNTY JR., which had left the air only a year earlier. But was it actually... CANCELED TOO TOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold guide you through this charming adventure series to figure out what worked, what went wrong, and whether LEGEND would succeed or fail if it came out today.
