What's a canceled tv show you wish they'd bring back, even if it was just re-runs?

That was a great show.
The Lead was also the photographer in that action film, "Cobra."
Had a small role as a M. victim. Surprised that particular Stallone film wasn't more popular.

Honestly, I love Post-Apocalypse shows. But only if they're done right, and are realistic. Here's a good list of some to bring back:

They keep bringing back Star Trek. And each new version is worse in my view. Gene Rodenburry was a forward thinker so his ideas were often cutting edge, even progressive. But part of the alure was cheap theatrics and inginuity. The new stuff uses same old same old new digital tech so there's no real imagination anymore. That allows them to focus on the woke agenda. No thank you.

My kids love it though and say each new one is "the best one yet".

Unfortunately, the original Star Trek had its Woke moments before it was called "Woke." Worst one being the two aliens who each had split Black & White faces. But one was Black on the right side, while the other was Black on the left side. In the end, that silly difference caused an Apocalypse event to occur on their home-planet. With those two men being the sole survivors. Roddenberry made himself look like a genuine fool catering to the ridiculous notion that the problem is "racism" and that the biggest issue is skin color.

He had an opportunity to make a real difference. To point out the fact that there are very real cultural differences that go far beyond skin color. But he chose to play it safe. I mean even nowadays, that fact is highly controversial. So, back then 1000x worse. But a gifted story-teller such as Roddenberry could have found a way to make it work without causing riots to break out in real life. Unfortunately he chose not to.

Every…single...one of the series listed in this thread is available for free, without commercials on many, many different on-demand TV/movie websites.

Woke = antiracism which is ok. I'll take woke over neonazi agendas.
Not by our definition. Woke is going way over the top to the point of preposterousness to virtue signal. Grown men competing in women's MMA, women's weight lifting, women's swimming...these are what the opposition to woke are talking about when we quote that term.

And the opposite of woke is not prejudice, and certainly not naziizm. That statement alone shows just how ludicrous and hyperbolic wokeness can be, or perhaps that we are talking about two completely different things. But I would guess the former.
