Jim Varney was a comedy sensation, thanks to his beloved character Ernest P. Worrell, who starred in TV commercials, hit movies and - for one short season - HEY VERN, IT'S ERNEST! It's a sketch comedy series for children that aired after GARFIELD AND FRIENDS, and won two Emmy Awards, including one for Varney himself.

It's remembered fondly by fans of Ernest P. Worrell, so is it possible that HEY VERN, IT'S ERNEST was... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold look back at the history of Ernest, what made the character so popular, and what works about his award-winning television series (and what definitely doesn't), before trying to come up with their very own episode of the show!

You know her name, you know her dolls, but you probably don't know that Barbie had her own animated series in 1987... because it only lasted two episodes. It's called BARBIE AND THE ROCKERS, it emerged from the short-lived toy line that Mattel invented to compete with JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS, and it's a time travel adventure in which - somehow - almost nothing happens.

BARBIE AND THE ROCKERS burned out quickly, but could it be that it was... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold review both episodes of the television series, which eventually went straight to video, to figure out what happened, why Barbie dances so weird, and why Ken desperately needs to shut up.

Whether you're joining us in a trip down memory lane, or just finding out what you've been missing, this is a must-listen episode of CANCELED TOO SOON!

It's the series that jumpstarted the careers of Judd Apatow, Paul Feig, Linda Cardellini, Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, James Franco, Samm Levine, John Francis Daley, Samm Levine, Martin Starr and Busy Philipps. It's FREAKS AND GEEKS, and it's one of the most acclaimed television shows of all time.

Indeed, (almost) everyone agrees that FREAKS AND GEEKS was... CANCELED TOO SOON! And this week, William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined by FREAKS AND GEEKS co-star Samm Levine to talk about what made this cult favorite series so special, where the show would have gone had it stayed on the air, and more!

Since the creation of CANCELED TOO SOON, one sitcom has been requested more than any other. That show is SELFIE, starring John Cho and Karen Gillan as updated versions of Henry Higgins and Eliza Dolittle from MY FAIR LADY and PYGMALION, in an eccentric comedy about the pros and cons of living on social media!

It's got a dedicated cult following, but it couldn't find an audience in its original run. Was SELFIE really... canceled too soon? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are joined this week by actor Samm Levine, the co-star of SELFIE, who reveals behind the scenes stories from the series, tells us where the story might have gone if it hadn't been canceled, and more!

Television visionary Steven Bochco produced the iconic legal shows HILL STREET BLUES, L.A. LAW and NYPD BLUE, but he also produced one of the most notorious TV failures in history. It's called COP ROCK, it's a serious, hardboiled social issue series with confrontational storylines about racism, sexism and police corruption, and it's also a weekly musical with songs by Randy Newman!

It's become one of the biggest punchlines in pop culture history, but is it possible that COP ROCK was... canceled too soon? Film critic April Wolfe joins our regular hosts William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold to unearth this bizarre piece of TV ephemera, analyze the best and worst songs, and consider the possibility that this supposedly embarrassing series is extremely underrated, and decades ahead of its time.

When Francis Ford Coppola does sci-fi television, it gets weird. We've already talked about THE PEOPLE, and now it's time to explore the old west alien surgery fish monster immortal princess shapeshifting panther and melancholy tetherball TV series WHITE DWARF. 

No, those were not just random words. That's actually what WHITE DWARF is about. It's one of the strangest TV shows we've ever reviewed (and that's saying something), but was WHITE DWARF... canceled too soon?

Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a walk on the weird side with Neal McDonough (LEGENDS OF TOMORROW) and Paul Winfield (STAR TREK II: THE WRATH OF KHAN) and CCH Pounder (AVATAR), in what may be the most bonkers project on all of their respective resum├ęs, as our PILOT SEASON concludes!

The ABC television series DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES was one of the most popular shows of the early 21st century, but for one reason or another, we never watched it. In the pilot episode for the podcast THE RANDOMIZER, we watch a randomly selected episode from the middle DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES and try to figure out what's going on!

Yes, it's random, but it used to be one of the ways that people discovered new television shows, before it was easy to catch up to long-running series on digital streaming, DVD or Blu-ray. Does it still work? Will we figure out what's happening on DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES, or will we turn out to be WAY off the mark?

Our PILOT SEASON continues with one of the weirdest footnotes in Francis Ford Coppola's career! Only two months before THE GODFATHER made him a household name, Coppola executive produced a TV pilot called THE PEOPLE, which starred Kim Darby (TRUE GRIT) and William Shatner (STAR TREK) as city folk who stumble across a town of, more-or-less, superpowered Amish people. Yes. Really.

THE PEOPLE never made it past the pilot episode, but was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a trip to this mysterious community where kazoos dance in mid-air, Vogue magazines are verboten, and William Shatner gives the most natural performance in the whole ensemble!

Our PILOT SEASON continues with AVERAGEFEST, a brand new podcast about the hunt for the most mediocre movie ever made! And the most average movie we could think of, to start with, is MICKEY BLUE EYES, starring Hugh Grant as a charmingly befuddled British person who has to impersonate a mobster to marry the woman he loves.

Find out what makes MICKEY BLUE EYES just kinda okay, not terrible but not particularly good either, and how you could use this screenplay as a blueprint for basically every middle of the road rom-com ever made, in this pilot episode for AVERAGEFEST!

Back in the 1960s, the Robinson family got LOST IN SPACE, in a classic sci-fi tv series that got better ratings than STAR TREK. 50 years later, the WB tried to reboot that franchise with director John Woo (FACE/OFF) and a young Adrianne Palicki (THE ORVILLE). Only this time, the Robinson family had to fence extraterrestrial threats in a post-9/11 milieu, a la BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.

John Woo's THE ROBINSONS: LOST IN SPACE may have been "badass," but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold dive into the furthest reaches of outer space to figure out what went wrong, what went right, and where this unusual reboot of LOST IN SPACE would have gone if more episodes had been produced. Who knows? Maybe it would have been better than the new Netflix version. (Then again, maybe not...)

The year was 1990, and Donald Trump got himself a game show by taking the British series BOB'S FULL HOUSE, filming it at Trump Castle, and changing the name to TRUMP CARD. It only lasted one season, but was it any good? And if not, was it as embarrassing as THE 100 LIVES OF BLACK JACK SAVAGE?

Welcome to CANCELED TOO SOON: THE HOME GAME, a pilot episode for a brand new podcast about defunct tv game shows! We're debuting pilot episodes for bonus shows throughout the month of April. Everyone will get to hear the pilots, but at the end of the month, only our Patreon subscribers get to vote on which podcast will become a Patreon-exclusive series!

What do you get when you mix William Shatner from STAR TREK, Adam West from BATMAN, John Cassavetes from THE DIRTY DOZEN and Joseph Cotten from CITIZEN KANE? You get a beefcake sword-and-sandal television series about ALEXANDER THE GREAT, and it only lasted one freakin' episode.

ALEXANDER THE GREAT had one of the most bizarre casts of any TV series, ever, but was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take you through the history of the sword-and-sandal genre, place this weird failed pilot in the context of the cast's lengthy and storied careers, and imagine the alternate reality in which ALEXANDER THE GREAT was a hit series, and STAR TREK and BATMAN - which premiered three years later - had to hire different leading men.

Our COPS WITH ROBOT PARTNERS MONTH is coming to an end, but we've saved the best for last. ALMOST HUMAN stars Karl Urban (STAR TREK) as a human cop who isn't in touch with his emotions, and Michael Ealy (THINK LIKE A MAN) as his robot partner, who has more emotions than he can handle. Together they solve crimes in Los Angeles in 2048!

ALMOST HUMAN is one of our most requested episodes, but was it really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take out their diagnostic equipment and run a scan on this sci-fi cult favorite, to talk about the episodes that were amazing, the episodes that sucked, what they think about the show's lingering mysteries, why Michael Ealy is a national treasure and why the episode where he fights Gina Carano is a classic!

The sci-fi worlds of Philip K. Dick collide in TOTAL RECALL 2070, a television series that takes place in a world where the technologies of BLADE RUNNER and TOTAL RECALL co-exist, and where - naturally - a cop gets a robot partner. COPS WITH ROBOT PARTNERS MONTH continues!

TOTAL RECALL 2070 may be one of the most ambitious TV shows we've ever reviewed, but was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold guide you through every good idea, bad idea and surprisingly boring idea this mostly forgotten sci-fi series had to offer. You know you're excited!

If you love Ray Wise on TWIN PEAKS, if you love cop shows, and if you love robots, then this is the series for you! It's COPS WITH ROBOT PARTNERS MONTH on CANCELED TOO SOON, and this week we're reviewing CONDOR, a failed pilot for a futuristic series about a sexist jerk and the female robot partner who's obviously too good for him.

CONDOR predicted online credit card transactions, but it couldn't predict its own, almost immediate cancelation. But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are here to find out, by analyzing every futuristic prognostication, every unenlightened line of dialogue, and every dune buggy chase through the Los Angeles River!

It's COPS WITH ROBOT PARTNERS month on CANCELED TOO SOON, and we're starting with a doozy. Oscar-winner Ernest Borgnine stars in FUTURE COP as a shabby beat cop whose new partner is a powerful android who can solve any crime, but doesn't understand the inner workings of the human soul.

In FUTURE COP, Ernest Borgnine and a robot cancel criminals' plans to commit murder, steal cars and rig boxing matches. But was this show... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani delve into every episode of FUTURE COP to find out what works, what's broken, and why the show was successfully sued by sci-fi legends Harlan Ellison and Ben Bova for plagiarism.

In 1968, Disney introduced the world to HERBIE THE LOVE BUG, an anthropomorphic Volkswagen Beetle who won races, warmed hearts, and starred in six feature-length, live-action motion pictures over the course of nearly 50 years. But most people forget that Herbie also starred in a Disney Channel television series in 1982... possibly because it's one of the most milquetoast television series ever made.

In HERBIE, THE LOVE BUG, the little car cancels his racing career to settle down with a family in the suburbs. But was he... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take this long-forgotten TV show for a spin to find out whether it still runs, or whether it needs to be taken back to the junk heap.

The 1970s didn't get much funkier than THE PERSUADERS! This short-lived action/adventure series starred Roger Moore (just before he became James Bond) and Tony Curtis (just before his career hit the skids) as two dapper, selfish millionaires who solve murders, stop conspiracies and seduce every human being in Europe.

It was a huge globetrotting adventure starring two of the sexiest stars in movie and television history, but was THE PERSUADERS! really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take you back to the Swingin' Seventies and try to figure out why THE PERSUADERS! still has a cult following, what the show did wrong, and how mad times Roger Moore and Tony Curtis could possibly stumble across dead bodies in the woods (hint: it's a LOT).

Sammy Davis Jr. plays a demon trying to buy Jack Klugman's soul in POOR DEVIL, a TV comedy in the tradition of BEWITCHED and I DREAM OF JEANNIE with a hellish little twist. Christopher Lee plays Lucifer and Adam West plays Klugman's despicable boss, but despite that phenomenal cast the pilot for POOR DEVIL wasn't picked up for series.

It's a devilishly fun idea, but was POOR DEVIL really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold take a deep dive into hell itself to figure out how this TV curio came about, what makes it work, what made it fail, and why it's got one of the funkiest theme songs we've ever reviewed!

You've never seen a show like STEEL JUSTICE. It's a live-action prime time TV pilot about an ancient immortal who searches for people who can transform stuff into bigger stuff, and who tracks down a cop whose dead son has possessed a robot dinosaur. Now, that cop needs to transform his dead robot dinosaur son into a giant robot dinosaur who breathes fire and kills bad guys.

STEEL JUSTICE might very well be the weirdest, dumbest television series we have ever reviewed. But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are on the case, outlining every single baffling element of this failed television pilot, and trying to figure out how the hell anyone thought it could ever work as a television series.

Links don't get much freakier than they do in FREAKYLINKS, a short-lived horror series about Gen X journalists who investigate ghosts, monsters and dinosaurs for their super-cool, super-edgy website, starring Ethan Embry (CAN'T HARDLY WAIT) and from the creators of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, DARK CITY and BATMAN BEGINS.

It was a concept that was practically designed to only last for one season at the turn of the century, but is it possible that FREAKYLINKS was... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are on the case, walking you through every episode of the cult favorite show and fantasizing about a world in which internet writers actually make money.

He's a wizard. He's a private detective. He's kind of a schmoe. He's Harry Dresden, and he's the protagonist of THE DRESDEN FILES, a popular series of novels by Jim Butcher and a short-lived television series on The Sci-Fi Channel starring Paul Blackthorne (an actor whose real name is arguably even cooler than "Harry Dresden").

THE DRESDEN FILES has werewolves, vampires, ghosts, dragons, bird people, and just about everything else you can think of, except actual files. But was it... CANCELED TOO SOON? Join film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold as they take a look at the cult favorite TV series, from the perspective of people who haven't read the books. (And yes, they accidentally got the year the show came out wrong on the podcast. They're sorry.)

In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: The police, who investigate crime, and the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. It's a system that works great in New York City, where every other American LAW & ORDER series takes place, but in LAW & ORDER: LOS ANGELES it fell apart after just one season.

It's one of the biggest failures in a long-running, super popular television franchise, but was LAW & ORDER: LOS ANGELES... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold are on the case, running down leads on why the LAW & ORDER formula works, why it's unintentionally hilarious, and every detail about Los Angeles that the showrunners got catastrophically wrong.
