As a TV network that has existed for over 70 years, NBC has expectedly and understandably brought an end to plenty of shows that fans were pissed to see leaving. You’re never going to make friends by canceling things, and some of their decisions to take shows off the air still sting today. We TV viewers are an emotionally fragile bunch, obviously.

Here are 13 series that were too good to ever get canceled, much less canceled so early into their runs. And yes, Matthew Perry shows up. If you'd like to see more in this series, here's 12 shows Fox should be embarrassed about canceling.

Freaks and Geeks
To many, Freaks and Geeks is right up there with Firefly in topping the annals of shows that were ended before their time. The comedic drama came from current Hollywood megastars Paul Feig and Judd Apatow, with a cast of future stars like James Franco, Seth Rogen, Linda Cardellini, Jason Segel, and Martin Starr (among others). It brilliantly looked at the trials, smiles and tribulations of high school life, through the prism of the early 1980s, and it seriously couldn’t have been a better series. (Joe Flaherty for the win.) Though its final episode served as a wonderful and sensible farewell, it still shouldn’t have come around for another couple of years.
