The Premise: If you grew up to be the kind of person who flipped when Firefly was cancelled, you must've watched The Pirates of Dark Water as a kid. The Hanna-Barbera series was the result of a successful miniseries about an alien world plagued by Dark Water. But the show ended before the good pirates could collect all 13 treasures necessary to defeat the substance. There were five to go.
