I remember this I used to think it was great. Trouble repeated it a few years ago.

She froze time by putting together the tips of her index fingers.

"Would you like to swing to on a star..."

I can't really remember the next two lines, but I think the forsth was "Or would you rather visit earth". Or something.

"...carry moon beams home in a jar?"

Not a problem. They're not bad. At least they carried on from the cliff hanger at the end of the tv series.

And it was nice to get a resolution for once..Too often one is left wondering where the story was going with other series.

Very true....

Earth 2
Total Recall 2070
Space: Above and beyond.
Odyssey 5

I got into these and well and truly smegged off with the way they finished.

I never saw John Doe.

If I remember rightly I didn't watch it because I found out it had been cancelled.

MMMMmmm - At least Firefly is getting a film

Others which were good but got canned way too soon:

Nowhere Man
The Adventures of Brisco Country, Jr.
Brimstone

I also remember Earth: Final Conflict. Lasted more than one season, but still got killed prematurely in the end.

Nowhere Man DID have a final episode.It was a naff one.

Brimstine was another that I was peed off about as well.

Earth Final Conflict suffered from stars leaving and and the storyline finally being so cr@p I couldn't watch the last series.In the end I couldn't bear the actress they had as the heroine in the final series.She was blonde and useless.All the male totty had gone as well.

As for the ending of Angel.

The ending for Angel was done for a reason though, it was a last ditch effort to get uncanceled or picked up by a different network. So technically that never ended and we may yet get to see the ending.

Some recent bits;

Firefly - The move opens on Oct 7th in the UK

Stargate - Series 9 - O'Neill appears eps 1 & 3 and may return later in the series.

Charmed - Series 8 is confirmed, and will probably be the last.

Battlestar Galactica - Series 2 (see below).

Spoiler: 
The series one stories will be wrapped up by episode 7 - Adama is not dead, but recovery is slow - Tigh is in charge. Roslin is in Jail.
