The Walking Dead, Lost And FlashForward Writers On Shows That Ended Too Early

There’s plenty of juiciness coming out of this year’s Comic Con in San Diego. The 12-minute screening of Peter Jackson’s rendition of The Hobbit was apparently amazing, Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim, with its 25-storey robots going at it in operatic combat and Elysium, from District 9 creator Neil Blomkamp, both “blew” the roof off the show, according to Blastr.

Sadly, net-ready footage of these supposed marvels has yet to appear (that isn’t blocked minutes later for copyright reasons), so for now we’ll have to make do with one of the show’s more thoughtful panels.

In the two videos here, Once Upon a Time‘s Andrew Chambliss and Ian Goldberg, along with The Walking Dead writer Scott Gimple Javier and Lost’s Grillo-Marxuach, take a look at shows from the past few years that didn’t quite make it, including Joss Whedon’s Firefly and Dollhouse, as well as FlashForward, based on the 1999 novel of the same name. Would an extra season have helped any of these shows, or were they doomed from the get-go?

The clip is broken into two parts, the second one can be found below.
