It's that time of year again! CANCELED TOO SOON is back with SUDDENLY LAST SEASON, a whole month where we review nothing but TV shows that failed within the last year, and we're starting with one of the most acclaimed Netflix shows ever made... TUCA AND BERTIE!

From the producer of BOJACK HORSEMAN came an animated sitcom about two mismatched birds growing up, and apart, in a surreal world filled with unimaginable sight gags and heartbreaking emotional sincerity. Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore the incredible world of TUCA AND BERTIE and decide, for the sake of posterity, whether this animated series was... CANCELED TOO SOON!

KOLCHAK: THE NIGHT STALKER is one of the most important and influential "Canceled Too Soon" shows in TV history. But what about the reboot, NIGHT STALKER, from X-FILES producer Frank Spotnitz, starring Stuart Townsend and Gabrielle Union? Was it a worthy follow-up to a cult TV classic, or a generic early-2000s supernatural detective series with a catastrophically miscast star?

You'll have to listen to CANCELED TOO SOON to find out! Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dig up NIGHT STALKER to see how it stacks up to the original, how it stacks up to THE X-FILES, and why all the show's problems probably could have been solved with a $20 trip to an outlet store.
