Shows you wish would come back

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

I liked Commander in Chief with Geena Davis a lot and was surprised and disappointed when it was canceled after just one season.

I entered a period of mourning when Sex and the City finished its run, but the movies snapped me out of it.

There is a misogynistic joke in there somewhere. I'm sure my mother is proud I can't think of one....

Freaks and Geeks was great, and Undeclared was good. You think you won't like Veronica Mars, but you will.

I wish Lost would come back.... at the end of Season 5.

Maybe the last season could be a dream had a by a Dharma shark...

I forgot about that one. Add that to my list.

Season 3 was pretty weak. Season two was the high point while season three was the weak link. My theory is that her break-up with Jimmy Kimmel post season-two robbed her of her focus.

From that site:

2) ELLEN (ABC)
ABC finally cancelled this sit-com starring comedian Ellen Degeneres after years of low ratings. The show had a brief popularity spike when the star 'came out of the closet' on the show and in her personal life.


Wait, the quotes mean she didn't come out of the closet? I thought she did.

Firefly, of course.

I was going to say Northern Exposure, but that show had gone through the whole story arc and more, and ended when it should have. I'd just like to see a show nowadays that is even remotely as good.
