The 10 Best Short-Lived FOX Shows
From 'Firefly' to 'Wonderfalls' to 'Method & Red,' FOX has canceled some classics
No. 2 - 'Wonderfalls'
Cynical, yet twee. Alienated, yet romantic. Introspective and yet prone to fits of visual whimsy.
"Wonderfalls" is yet another show that FOX deserves much credit for developing and putting on the air, even if the network never -- not for a single second -- knew what to do with Bryan Fuller and Tim Minear and Todd Holland's baby when it premiered and tanked in the spring of 2004.
From the ear-worm theme by Andy Partridge, to the perfectly utilized special effects to snarktastic lead performance by Caroline Dhavernas to a marvelous supporting cast including William Sadler, Diana Scarwid, Lee Pace, Tyron Leitso and Kate Finneran, "Wonderfalls" is just a special show that was too fragile for this world, or at least for FOX.
I wrote much more about "Wonderfalls" when it ranked at No. 17 on my list of TV's Best of the Decade.
