10 Cancelled Sci-Fi TV Shows Netflix Should Bring Back Before Terra Nova

Odyssey 5

This is the real long-shot of the bunch, as it aired a full decade ago and many of you have probably never even seen an episode. Odyssey 5 follows five shuttle astronauts who witness Earth’s destruction from orbit, and are then thrown back in time by an alien intelligence known as the Seeker. They have five years to solve the mystery of Earth’s destruction, and prevent it from happening. Unfortunately, Showtime canceled the series after one season and left the show without any resolution. Odyssey 5 was the creation of Manny Coto, who went on to run the final season of Star Trek: Enterprise. The show’s biggest star was Peter Weller, who played mission commander Chuck Taggart. He’s doing some directing in recent years but isn’t tied down to a continuing series, so he could conceivably be lured back, especially if Netflix baited him with the prospect of directing some of the episodes. This is probably the least likely of our picks, but I for one would love to see where the show was headed. As for the actors aging a decade? Just claim it’s an adverse effect of being thrown back in time.
