Futurama

The Tick

Spaced - yes i know it's not been canceled just Simon Pegg and Jessica Simpson have stopped writing it, but damn it I want more.


(Begining to realise i think 90% of my posts in the movies, tv shows, and books section have mentioned Spaced)

Another Neverwhere would also be cool.

Actually, I believe Gaiman was planning to make at least another story in the Neverwhere universe. And he better should be. It's such a wonderfull and potent world. Especially with characters like the Marquis and Croup and Vandemaar.

Also, I demand for the return of Farscape and the continuation of Carnivale. But then, who am I? :]

Wow, You're the first person I've known who actually remembers freaks and geeks and wants it back. I liked that program too. I heard it rated bad in the US and thats why they cancelled it. It was so much better than all the other trash that we get here... *sniff*

Quote from: My Aim Is True
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.


My favorite show of all time. The character of Bill Haverchuck is about as close to comidic gold as you can get.

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.


So, why is it we still have all that shit in one form or another, and no good TV?

NO FREAKIN' WAY! I've been ranting about it been cancelled for about 5 years now! Sean, it made me happy to hear that I'm not the only one that totally loved that show!

Also, Freaks and Geeks was never shown in Canada, as far as I know, I just downloaded episodes because I heard about the show and wanted to check it out. Me friend and I are pitching in and buying the season dvds. I should tell her about Undeclared, she'll plotz.

Peter Wingfield was in a lot of shows that I loved and never get to watch anymore: Highlander, Touching Evil, Bliss...

Oh, I'm adding Bliss to my list of shows, because I loved my Canadian almost porn. Skinny, pale naked men.

And Mash. It's not like FX needs to show cops that often, they could put it back on.

I don't know, the story seemed sort of finished to me, so I'm not sure whether that would make sense.

Apart from that: Futurama, first and foremost. But we might even get it back, there might be a straight-to-DVD movie.
Also, Invader Zim. I mean, I understand why it was cancelled (actually, the same reason Futurama was cancelled - it's not a show for kids), but goddamn, we need more of Ziiiiim!
Also Angry Beavers and Freakazoid.

this thread is cool, i am a nerd and i join with the futurama fans. Fox made me want to eat my own head out of sheer frustration when that show got cancelled. Luckily i've downloaded pretty much every episode and in a fit of misplaced corporate loyalty bought the first season dvd box set as well. It would be amazing to see more freaks and geeks but as previously stated the actors would be way too old now to pull it off. I think it suffered because it was too shmaltzy to be cool for some people and too cool to be shmaltzy for others. I liked it though, thought it had healthy doses of both cheese and genuinely great storylines. Check out the filesharing program bearshare for pretty much all the episodes - thats where i got em :)

I....I....I think I might love you. And I barely watch tv. I miss Futurama, but it was starting to get a bit too sappy at the end of its days. Still, it should come back. I also never saw Invader Zim on television since they don't play it here, I downloaded the episodes or dvds. Either way, more episodes, plzkthnx.
