1,312 unaired episodes since 99

http://www.thefutoncritic.com/rant.aspx?id=20070912

The futon critic has been doing a countdown to the new season with some interesting facts about past seasons. Today's was the first one I found really interesting. I liked looking through that list of all those cancelled shows. I was most surprised when I got to the block of Dead Last, Eyes, and Joey with 8 unaired episodes. That's a lot of unaired episodes for some quality shows. I especially loved Dead Last. Everytime I watch Medium or Ghost Whisperer, I mourn the loss of Dead Last.

I wonder how accurate those counts are though. I know some of the shows on the second list should be on the third list. For instance Freaks and Geeks aired their unaired episodes on Family Channel. Also, I think it'd be impossible for The Reality Show to have unaired episodes since each week was determined by viewer voting. I know a few episodes aired on mtv.com, but I don't even know if they finished the thing at all.

That's first time I've ever seen "quality" used to describe Joey.

Oh come on. You must have heard phrases like, "That Joey show is some shitass quality programming" or, "I've never seen worse quality primetime programming than Joey".

Do pilots that don't get picked up count?

I'm still upset that NBC chose not to burn off the 6 unaired episodes of E-Ring from 2 years ago.

And Miss Match.

I was glad that CBS gave VH1 the unaired episodes of Love Monkey.

Does passing them off to cable count?

And then there all those shows that burned off episodes on the net but I never got around to watching: Smith, Kidnapped, Vanished, Day Break, etc.

I just hope that when this electronic distribution thing gets cooking, we get at least digital distribution of a lot of this stuff I care about. I'd love to see any remaining episodes of Line of Fire, The Inside, Miracles, Eyes, Drive, and a bunch of others.

Miracles is available in a DVD box set and I gotta say, Wow. I also saw the episodes for Eyes on, let's just say ulterior means. Cough. Great show though.

Wow. I think I've only even heard of a handful of those shows.

And I forgot Emeril had a show once, long, long ago.

I think Freaks and Geeks is on the wrong list. Didn't ABC Family show a few episodes after it was canceled before it hit DVD?

In terms of unaired episodes, I wonder if "The Ni9e" will get wrapped up on Tim Daly's new Grey's Anatomy spin-off. Maybe we'll finally find out what his deal is.

Hey, it could happen.

Actually Justice burned off all their remaining 4 episodes last December (12 total episodes aired). The final episode was a Christmas themed episode. Supposedly there was a 13th episode, but noone knows if it actually exists or not.

I believe Warner Brothers only gave CBS a 1 or 2 month window to show Smith for free on Innertube and then they were promptly removed. I think they are still available on Itunes.

I hated how NBC handled Kidnapped. They only put 1 episode at a time online and once a new episode was posted, the previous one was promptly removed. I didn't even bother watching it online and purchased the entire series for 30 bucks at Walmart.

You didn't miss much with Vanished. I watched all the remaining episodes on myspace and the story was incomplete.

Day Break was awesome, but a little confusing at times. All 13 episodes are still on ABC.com as of right now. With the new fall season approaching, I don't think you will have time to watch them.....don't know how long they are going to be there.

Now I'm psyched to get Miracles on DVD and watch it. That was a great show unjustly killed by ABC.

Check your local Dollar General store - they were selling the complete series for $10.

It's totally worth that.

The war actually killed the show. For several weeks, news cut ins about the war butchered the show and ABC never bothered to rerun episodes that were completely pre-empted by news coverage.

Yes, it was Skeet Ulrich investigating strange occult phenomena working with a group called "Sodalitas something or other". The individual incidents were supposed to be leading up to some sort of major apocolyptic event, which was never resolved or even defined in the aired episodes. I bought the set, but I still haven't watched any except the ones I saw when it originally aired. There was one about a dead girl's ghost that actually gave me nightmares when I first saw it. As I recall, there was a dying boy who was somehow involved in the "big picture" (getting psychic messages or prophecies from beyond, etc). I think a priest was trying to exorcise the kid. - Something like that, it was a good show and worth 10 bucks for 11 episodes.
