    Firefly, no question. I still watch the only season on DVD on a pretty regular basis.

    I caught a few Firefly episodes and it was pretty good at times. What about Jericho? That show had a cult following but was cancelled as I recall.

    Maybe an A-Team remake? It would have to be a good remake though. I think something like that would get good viewership, as long as they did it right. They could make a new team that could include an original member or 2, and the rest of the primary cast could be the offspring of the original cast, or something like that. Because George Peppard is dead, and who knows what happened to the guy who played Murdoch. You'd have to include Mr T in some significant role. When they made that recent A Team movie, the BA Baracus character didn't cut it compared with Mr T. But neither did most of the other guys. Mr T was made for that role!

    Stephen Colbert announcing guest Joss Whedon: "And my guest Joss Whedon is the creator of Buffy, Firefly, and Dollhouse; the interview will be critically-acclaimed and then get cancelled halfway through."

    Joss Whedon wouldn't revive Firefly if he could. So much more money in Marvell blockbusters.

    Norm, is that show from when places like Gippsland and Goulburn Valley and half a hundred other places used to have those great TV towers ( lightning attracters ) 70-80' high, just to get a snowy picture from Mt. D. I can only just recall the Twilight Zone from then.

    Outer Space Astronauts. Very short lived, and somewhat dumb, but I loved it.

    I can remember those towers and crappy snowy pictures, transmitter power must have increased over the years, Melbourne TV isn't a problem in west Gippsland, in fact we live right in the middle of the Mt. Dandy and Mt. Tassie transmitters and are set up for both, of course with digital the picture is perfect from both locations.

    From my local comic book store: X-Files: Season 10, co-written by Chris Carter. Picks up right where the show left off, focusing on Mulder, Scully, and Skinner. If you're ready for the next season of X-Files but don't want to wait for the network contracts and shooting schedule, it's at your local comics place now..

    PSI Factor: Chronicles of the Paranormal (1996-2000)
    St. Elsewhere (1982-1988)
    Nightmare Cafe (1992)

    I could make the list much longer

    Gilligan's Island. It hasn't been on TV in North America in over 10 years.

    Firefly was great.
    Black Sheep Squadron
    The Munsters
    The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, too. They had the 'classic' episodes on KDOC a few years ago. It was on for only a few months.

    MASH is still on the air. But, it's on cable only.

    EDIT: Forgot one. Vengeance Unlimited (1998–1999) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0158421/

    Anybody remember that one?

    St Elsewhere is on Hulu, Gilligan's Island is on Netflix.

    Jericho and Terra Nova are also on Netflix.

    Now that we can see all these old shows, what would really top off the presentation is period-correct commercials for the full experience; so as you're watching your episode of Moonlighting, you get commercials like Kodak Color Watch with Bill Cosby, Wilford Brimley for Quaker Oats, McDonald's gift certificates, etc..

    GI on Netflix? I never knew! Thanks for making that known! I have Netflix.

    EDIT: OK, just checked and it's not available. They could have got rid of it. Like they did with Soap. BTW, that's another show I wish was back on the air. That show was so damn funny.

    Betcha didn't know that a lot of the more famous commercial jingles came from this guy. Here he is performing his "Very Strange Medley" of jingles.

    You can watch full episodes of Gilligan's Island here on TheWB. (at least some of them)

    Of course, before there was Gilligan, there was Maynard G. Krebs, the seminal TV role model for the counter culture as played by Bob Denver on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis which ran from 1959-1963

    If you have a Blu-ray player, get the BD release. They re-mastered from the original 70mm film, and the thing looks brand new (almost full HD quality). Nothing like those horrible A&E DVDs made from poor, degraded prints. They even did a good job of spatializing the mono sound (e.g. opening and closing doors actually show up on the back channels of my surround sound). One of the best blu-rays I ever bought.

    The 2009 AMC remake with Jim Caviezel and Ian McKellen was quite disappointing.

Netflix is the only place to see the fourth season of Arrested Development (another one that could go many more seasons), it was released only there and never aired on actual television, where it was cancelled after season three.

    Edit: Here's a fine demonstration of the power of Hulu, The Outer Limits is FREE on Hulu, if you're reading this, you have everything you need to start watching right now. All 49 episodes of the 1963 series are here, all 152 episodes of the 1995 series are here. Enjoy!
    I'll try this, thanks!

    I still cant get over the fact that cancer man was mulder's real dad!

    comic book store? last one of those around here went out back in the late 90's. Ah, the joys of being in a very small town. thankfully they make sites like amazon or ebay, if i relied on only what could be bought around here, i'd have nothing!





    anyone remember the old show from the 60's called thunderbirds? i think it was first aired in the uk if i recall correct. it was the show done with those puppets on strings. they used to play it on tv when i'd come home from school and i loved it.

    I think the orginal show was called takeshi castle and it was filmed as like a movie like instead of a game show. i read about it somewhere. i know the new show wipeout imitates it, but MXC blows it out of the water. i can't even stand to watch wipeout. true it was adolescent at times with it's sexual humor, but it was funny to watch when you're having a bad day!

    I'd like to see Stargate Atlantis and Stargate Universe come back. There are some movies that never made it to D.V.D. that I'd really like to see come back. One of them was Josh and S.A.M. and the other was Alone in the Woods (the comedy, not the horror movie). Josh and S.A.M. was about two brothers that didn't get along. Josh tricks Sam into thinking he's a cyborg that will be sent off to fight a war in Africa if he doesn't escape to Canada. Alone in the Woods is like Home Alone but in the wilderness. Both shows are hilarious.

    You can watch full episodes of many older TV shows and feature films for free (with commercials) on Crackle.com. Crackle is especially nice for viewing on the iPad and other tablets.

    Some examples:

    All in the Family

    Thunderbirds

    Married With Children

    The Shield

    Sanford & Son

    The Prisoner

    How is this not being shown on the Sci Fi channel, or Comedy Central, or FX or something?
