Three shows I wish never ended

If you were to ask me this question face to face, I probably wouldn’t stop going on for ages. There are so many shows I wish continued on when I was a child, and as I’ve grown older, that list has gotten so much longer. But since I’m not in the mood to write an entire book about shows I wish never ended, I’m going to let you guys know my top three.

The first show on my list, and my favorite one in general, is hands down Firefly. I know for a fact that I’m not the only one to feel this way! Every time I see a picture of the show, there are comments like “I really wish this show didn’t end,” and “Please bring this show back!” It’s an amazing show, no doubt about that.

Firefly is a mixture of sci-fi, drama, action, and so much more. The characters all play an important role in the series, and each one of them has such a story behind them. From sarcastic war veterans to bonafide companions, this show really expands its horizons.

It first aired back in 2002 and only ended with 14 episodes. Luckily for us, the last episode kind of leaves us with some answers, however, we all know that it shouldn’t have ended as quickly as it did. There are so many questions still, and who knows what kind of storyline they had in mind if the show continued? Sadly, when it was first released, it didn’t get as many views as planned. In fact, Firefly didn’t even get much viewers until recently. Even though there is a movie to watch after completing all the episodes, I will never stop wanting more from the captain and his fantastic crew.

Second on my list may not be as good as the first, but it sure earns its place in my list. Dear anime gods, why did you have to get rid of Fooly Cooly? FLCL is one of the greatest animes of all time in my opinion. It was one of the first shows I watched when I got back into anime, and every time I watch it, I love it even more.

Sadly, it’s only 6 episodes. If you are a fan of the series, you would know this. You would also feel my pain. Fooly Cooly is one of the most weird, well put together, intriguing animes I’ve ever watched. It’s damn good for being as short as it is. The art, storyline, and characters always leave you wanting to watch the next episode. I will never know why it stopped, but sometimes I think it’s a good thing. If it had continued, maybe it wouldn’t be as amazing as it is. So part of me is content with what I got out of the show, but the other part will always secretly want Fooly Cooly to continue!

Not necessarily last on my list, but the end of this specific one is Guilty Crown. This series is by far one of my favorite sci-fi themed anime. It lasted about 26 episodes, but that was it! Now, this is normal for most shows, but I just really wanted them to do something and create a season 2!

The ending of Guilty Crown wasn’t what I expected, and a lot of people can agree. It didn’t really do justice to the show. However, it still happens to be one of my favorites. The music is definitely a big factor when it came to choosing this series. I don’t know what they would have done with a second season to be honest, but I hope if they did ever plan to in the future, it would be really great. Just like FLCL, I’m happy and not happy it ended the way it did. Sometimes, not continuing is better than ruining the show. But hell, I’d be happy with just a Guilty Crown movie!

The list could go on for ages, really. I wish they would have continued a lot of stuff, especially from my childhood. Things like Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Rocket Power, and so much more! However, I’m almost 100% sure that Firefly will always be number one for me.

Let me know what shows you wish never ended!
