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

By Josh Tyler | 9 years ago


Another one-season wonder that I really enjoyed, Journeyman aired for 13 short episodes back in 2007. Kevin McKidd starred as Dan Vasser, a newspaper reporter who finds himself being thrown back in time over and over again, each time meant to help a certain individual avoid an unpleasant fate. The whole “setting right what once went wrong” thing is a concept that’s been done many times before, most notably in Quantum Leap, but Journeyman did it well. It was also building up a fascinating mythology involving other time-jumpers, including Dan’s formerly believed-dead fiance (played by Moon Bloodgood), and the origins of Dan’s abilities. There is still plenty of meat to the concept to merit a resurrection. McKidd has been appearing on Grey’s Anatomy and Bloodgood is on TNT’s Falling Skies, but since Netflix isn’t restricted to a specific season length, they still might be able to make it work. Unfortunately, series creator Kevin Falls has moved on to running TNT’s Franklin and Bash, which might make things tricky.
