But they're both examples of cool and unique sci-fi shows that never had a chance because they were on Fox and weren't just trying to further lower the bar like everything else that network airs.
Terra Nova is the least of things that I'd shoot to get more episodes of Firefly, but I can't blame it on Fox. The show was just mediocre. That's not to say they couldn't have improved on it down the line, but pulling it wasn't necessarily the wrong call. Frankly, I'd have been tempted to do the same thing.
