Following on from my mention of Jericho on the "If it all ended" thread, What TV shows did you enjoy but were inevitable cancelled?

For those who haven't seen it, Jericho first aired on CBS in the states and was pretty much excellent. It was set in the town of Jericho in Denver and followed the events after a hypothetical mass nuclear attack on the United States, where every major city was destroyed. Jericho was one of the few towns not to fall victim to some kind of disaster, whether it was an initial blast, sweeping radiation or poisoned water supplies. It basically explored what would happen if such an event were to happen, i.e. the need for resources, trickling information and the power struggle to reform the US... with some states wishing to rebel and form their own country in the aftermath.

It really was a brilliantly written piece of TV, but it didn't really strike popularity in the US, limped onto ITV 2 on these shores and was cancelled after one and a half series.
