My nominations: Northern Exposure and Homicide: Life on the Street (best cop show ever made).  Why do I scan the T.V. guide and see endless Simpsons and Seinfeld repeats and crappy reality T.V. shows, when these two brilliant programmes languish in the vaults?

I would love to see another series of "Ultraviolet", a modern UK vampire thingy, it was awesome, the last good thing I saw on UK TV before opting out entirely (apart from catterick :) ). Another Neverwhere would also be cool.

I move that Invader Zim be brought back to life! That, and that 90s sci-fi show sliders. Both awesome and underappreciated, and now cancelled. Why oh why are Tv people so ignorant when it comes to good shows?

Wonderfalls!

It's a shame the campaign to get the show on DVD wasn't enough to spark a second chance for the series (ala Family Guy). It's even worse now that they revealed on the commentaries what they would have done for season 2+3 had they not been cancelled.

There was rumor that they might be able to jumpstart a Wonderfalls movie (ala Serenity), but everyone's moved on to other things and the more time passes the less likely it will ever happen.

Khar, it lost steam once Fox dropped it.  The whole "Cromaggs" stuff was pretty lame IMO.  I don't care if it was Roger Daltrey who introduced them.


Highlander was awesome to me.  Then there was Space: Above and Beyond, Earth 2, Profiler (before the redhead took over), Pretender....



*sigh* this is why I had no social life.

They should bring back Freakylinks, Twin Peaks, and most definitely Sliders.  I watched that show religiously.  Oh, and they should bring back Remington Steel.

The new series of the Fugative. They left it on such a cliffhanger!

I have to agree with Clerks: The Cartoon. I really wanted to see an episode where Randall bought http://www.knightrideronline.com/">K.I.T.T. and then http://www.knightrideronline.com/">K.I.T.T. tried to kill him to take his job. (This is was from the DVD commentary where they mentioned ideas for the rest of the season had they been picked up.)

The funny thing is I got burned out on Norther Exposure yet I can still watch and find amusement in Simpsons episodes I can practicaly quote the whole episode.

I will have a big ass party once CSI metaphorical bloated corpse is in the grave.

Also it seems Space Ghost Coast to Coast has been pulled off the air.  I imagine this is to drive up sales of the DVDs.

And The Adventures Of Pete & Pete.  Man that show was awesome from what I can remember.  (WHAT?)

The thing that annoys me is that Channel 10, which screened Northern Exposure here about 10 years ago, shows the Simpsons and Seinfeld over and over and over and over again, not to mention endless repeats of the various Law & Order series, but it's never once re-screened Northern Exposure.

QFE. Along with Zim! Nickelodeon, after the three times you've cancelled it, a bunch of Psuedo gothy kids flamed you to put it back, and you kept cancelling it! just keep it already!

Dilbert - I can't remember what the last episode was, but the last one I saw was the one where the Gruntmaster created a blackhole. I totally forgot what happened next.

Boy Meets World - Been watching reruns of it, yet it I believe it "Jumped the Shark" (There is a Wikipedia article listing shows which "Jumped the Shark" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_shows_that_are_widely_considered_to_have_jumped_the_shark )

I also liked Greg the Bunny. That should be brought back...

Ah.  The fact that while it was (and for awhile after it wasn't) practicaly everyone around here was over zealous over Northern Exposure due to it being filmed here.  Ugh, Law & Order.  

Honestly as much as I like Zim I wouldn't want Vasquez doing something he's sick of and putting out crap.  Maybe Roman Dirge could take it over though, he seems more capable of dealing with that sort of crap plus he did write a handful of episodes

Thinking waaaay back i remember a bunch of good ol nick shows (and other ones) that need to be back.

The ORIGINAL All That- The new cast blows
Roundhouse- Loose scripts+constant flow+breakdancing=fuckin great.
Angry Beavers- One of the strangest and best executed show ideas EVAR
Quantum Leap- I have seasons 1&2 boxed, if you dont, go get them NOW.
Futurama- Because its awesome, why else?
Greg the Bunny- Just needed time to catch on, it was hilarious. I mean come on, a show with live puppets? How can you get funnier?
REN AND STIMPY- The funniest show ever on TV. If you disagree, i will fight you to the death.

I can only think of one show I want back, Bonkers from that Disney Show, that was awesome. Besides that nothing really, there are no good series in Denmark, though Katjakaj and Bentebent is fun, it's a show for kids but it's really creepy and weird, just their names are fucked up. Its a female name and male name slammed together, Katja and Kaj, Bente and Bent.
And then it just gets strange..

I can't believe no one has said Freaks and Geeks.

It's been too long now, all the actors have grown up too much or gotten too famous, but I would give my left nut to change history and just let there have been a second season back in 2000-2001.

oon the DVD, they talk about about what they would have done in season two, and it included more punk rock. I believe this to be the only TV show in history to accurately portray a character getting into punk.

You remember Roundhouse? I love you.
Also, Angry Beavers was awesome.

I think they should do a fifth season of Mr. Show. Because really, it's not like they're all super busy. Except David Cross is a bit.

I was thinking about Northern Exposure, and then I stopped and thought about how much I used to love the Young Indiana Jones. And Power Rangers. And Doogie Howser.

But you know what show I really loved, and they went and cancelled? The American Touching Evil. Stupid USA network...

Y'know, looking back, I realize that for everything that was absolutely terrible aboout the 90s (backward hats, boy bands, spice girls, neon clothing, etc.), the decade had damn good television.  Nickelodeon and the Sci-fi channel both hit their peaks, and have fallen a long way since. Also, Mr. Rogers was still around.

I think they need to re-animate Mr. Rogers' corpse.
