    I was thinking about this topic on my way to work and thought of Airwolf too. Although a modern remake would probably make it worse. Alf was great as well.

    I've seen all the Firefly episodes and the movie more than once and like many I loved them. I think Joss Whedon's secret recipe for success in all his endeavors has always been his ability to create particularly endearing characters who perfectly populate the scripts he works with. This was perhaps especially true of Firefly.

    Northern Exposure.

    I have some of the seasons on DVD, and it can still make me laugh out loud.

    Reruns would be awesome, but with today's technology, I wouldn't mind a remake either.

Somebody posted some of the episodes over on YouTube not long ago, and watching it now, it's like the most embarrassingly awful rip-off of Tron and whatever other sci-fi cliches were laying around in the early 80's. But if you were young enough to think Small Wonder was awesome, then it fit right in..

    I do remember Manimal, liked it as a kid but only lasted one season. Also enjoyed Misfit's of Science and Wonder Woman. I think Linda Carter was my first crush!

    im not very up to date with the jericho. but back when i watched it, IIRC, the show was ended abruptly. im not sure if they continued making more episodes or not.
    but i do know because it was canceled they finished up the story in the form of a graphic novel (comic book). thats where i ended my interest in jericho. they could have actually continued with the story after the 1 grahic novel. but i had lost interest and never bothered to check it up.

    i think im going to have to check out northern exposure if i can find it. i remember that show when i was young, but it probably bored me, and my short attention span. all i could remember was the short-haired brunette was very pretty. LoL

    I would lile to see "The Prisoner". Without a doubt, one of the most enigmatic, original and thought provoking shows in television history.

    What a huge injustice it was to cancel that show after only one season.

    Ally McBeal,, unfortunately, when a few of the characters finally developed into people you could actually care about....the show was cancelled. The bar scenes at the end of the episode was worth suffering through the neuroses.

    Thats the way I saw it,

    A lot of posters to this thread, including me have mentioned shows they enjoyed in their younger days all the way back to their childhoods. In more recent times, the show I was most unhappy to see canceled was HBO's Deadwood. It was said at the time that new historical characters were going to be introduced to the town of Deadwood including a visit from Mark Twain. I was very interested to see what David Milch, the writer, director and executive producer would come up with. I have been a fan of his ever since he developed NYPD Blue. Like NYPD Blue with metro crime procedurals, Deadwood was a game changer in the world of television Westerns (and influenced a number of motion pictures that came after it) in terms of realism, attention to historical detail (which included the use of foul language), lighting, cinematography, acting quality and character development. There has never really been anything quite like it. Re-runs are available on HBO GO which is great but I would have loved to see the series continued and been entertained by its observations of the founding and development of Deadwood, South Dakota.

Not to sure i'd want to see any NEW episodes of the X-files cause they would probably butcher them, so i'd settle for re-runs. it's kinda like Hawaii 5-0, i LOVED the orginal series with jack lord, but HATE with a passion the new one. same with the twilight zone, loved the old black and white episodes, hated the ones in the 80's.

    I also miss the show called MXC, though many may have not heard of it.



    Your turn!
    i hate to admit it, but I'd probably watch any show that talked about grass and dirt even if the host was boring and had an annoying voice. There's two reasons for that: 1. My business is landscaping related, and the soil around here is probably the worst on the planet, so it needs improvement. 2. Even if I had no interest in grass or dirt, it would still be more interesting than 98% of the terrible, fake "reality" shows on these days.

    As far as shows to bring back, I haven't gotten into many series over the past 20+ years, but back in the mid 2000's HBO had created some winners, but then they inexplicably began canceling these shows in mid run even though most had good ratings(???). One was Deadwood, then there was Carnivale, which was unusual but good, and Rome. Big Love was pretty good too. I could've watched another year or two of The Wire, which could be the best 1 or 2 tv series of all time.

    You must be the manager of the Lee Majors fan club! I was like 5 when 6 Million Dollar Man came out and I loved it back then. My neighbors wouldn't let their son watch it because they thought it was demonic or something, go figure. I watched the Spin off where Steve Austin's girlfriend was given bionics too. Fall Guy was ok but not too memorable IMO. I have always wondered why they don't run 6 Million dollar man reruns somewhere.

    But Airwolf? Seriously? Why not Buck Rogers in the 25th Century?

    I watched my share of Buck Rogers. Erin Gray was easy on the eyes, but Twiki...that dude, er...thing was freaky!

    I also enjoyed Battlestar Galactica.

    Yeah, and remember that other robot that Twiki wore like a necklace? It was round and its name was doctor Theopolis I think. It was the brains and Twiki was the transportation. But Erin Gray was hot back in the day.
