No, it aired, they pulled the encore episodes. It's nothing more than a publicity stunt for more ratings.

Publicity with a touch of irony - a conspiracy theory about a show about conspiracy theories. lol

Just Cause (2001-2003)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0324861/

I've been searching for this show since forever, but unfortunately, it's not anywhere. I watched it on tv before and was totally sad that it was cancelled. The theme song was "I'll survive" by Gloria Gaynor.

#1. Brimstone (I think it was on one person's list, I have to settle for SDTV rips from Youtube to watch it again)
#2 Dirk Gently (Brilliant, zany, entertaining spin on the detective genre, based on Douglas Adam's character. Only 3 episodes?! WTF!)
#3. Arrested Development (Coming to Netflix soon)
#4. Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls, Pushing Daisies (Anything written by Bryan Fuller)
#5. Farscape (It went 88 episodes, but the only people who didn't want a 5th season was Sci-Fi network. 5 years of waiting for new webisodes)

So here is my list:

Firefly -seriously should be on everyone's list-
Eureka
Flash Forward -I'll probably get flamed for this one but I think it was pretty well done.
Mob Doctor
Bored to death (HBO series- loved Ted Danson in that)
The Defenders
Men of a certain age
Panam
Playboy club
Revolution (is this canceled?)
The Riches
S#*! my dad says
Star Trek enterprise (haters gonna hate)
Partners (kind of a guilty pleasure)
Awake
Combat hospital

Here is my list, it looks like many others...

Firefly - A must have for the serious Sci-Fi Nut.
Panam - I really liked it.
Star Trek enterprise - Was starting to get good.
Pushing Daiseys - loved this one, but was I alone.
Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles

In addition to several of the ones mentioned above,

Heroes
First Wave
Upright Citizens Brigade
Sealab 2021
Spartacus
Sliders
X-Men (90's version)
Kekkaishi (Anime)
Inuyasha (Anime)
Highlander: The Raven
Angel
Caprica
Frisky Dingo
Transformers: Beast Machines and Prime
Teen Titans
Welcome to Paradox
VR5
Torchwood

There's probably a dozen others that I missed...but these ones definitely still had a lot of potential...or at least deserved a better wrap-up.

Spartacus pretty much ran it's course. Not really sure how they could have kept it going without rewriting history.

I agree that its conclusion was definitive, and you're right, for centuries, it's been contested as to Spartacus's (and Crixus's) intentions after the main army split--so the show's writers would literally be declaring what's historically accurate (a critical failing of previous dramatizations of the 3rd Servile War).

That said though, while Gods of the Arena through Vengeance had, in my opinion a very natural balance between content and story pace...War of the Damned seemed a little rushed to me.

You have 2 seasons that cover 1 year (73 BC) ...and 1 season that covers 2 years (72-71 BC). and you really feel it too...with very brief transitions between key events and massive character changes occurring frequently.
Let's be honest, Crixus's army barely got any camera time...and that was a major plot shift. Also, in terms of story development, the last season emphasized the development of Spartacus and Crassus and the similarities of their respective personas...but the culmination of which, in the final battle, seemed anticlimactic. Likewise, with as much time as they spent substantiating Crassus and Caesar, and as little relative time they spent introducing Pompey, that element also begged for a little more fleshing out (perhaps a mini-arc (a la Gods of the Arena)...particularly when those 3 characters, and their subsequent seizure of the Republic, were arguably just as (if not moreso) influential and historically remarkable as Spartacus's legend itself.

Ultimately, if I were to do one thing to change that series, I would have added an extra season's worth of episodes: half covering the skirmishes after their escape from Glaber's troops at Mt. Vesuvius...half covering the final battle and the aftermath.


(Note: for those that haven't seen this show, I'd highly recommend it...it's from the makers of Hercules/Xena (Tapert/Raimi) ...and it's like they took that early, casual glimpse of Ancient Greco-Roman culture and injected it with a gallon of steroids, giving it a real grittiness. After a few weekends of binge-watching, I was racing online to learn more about the real historical events.)
