Firefly again

I finished watching all fourteen episodes. How could this brilliant show have been cancelled? I like it better than Buffy, and I'm not even into SciFi that much.
More especially, why was it cancelled (partly) because the main character is too dark and the crew is pursued by the law (and does not enforce the law). Dark and brooding MC is usually a big turn-on, at least for me, because, well, the MC is dark and brooding and leaves the watcher a mystery that he can discover. Is that why there are so many crappy Hollywood comedies? Because the MC has to be cheerful and bouncy? Don't you get sick from cheerful and bouncy after a while?

Oh unfair world. You kill the good and leave us with crappy romance comedies.
