What TV Shows Do You Miss?

post #1 of 101
Thread Starter 
There are TV shows that I really wish were still on the air. I think of the old episodes and think of the characters : This of course coming from a child that was raised by the television
These are a few I can think of off the top of my head:

Homefront - Set during WWII
Picket Fences - Costas Mandelor (Deputy Kenny)
V - Show with aliens with spots on their heads that got drunk off of sour milk

Darnit, that's all I can think of now. Darn tandem nursing brain

What shows do you miss?

Seinfeld, Are You Being Served?...can't think of any others, but there have been plenty the last couple of years that I wished had not gotten cancelled.

We should play more British sitcoms on American telly.

Definitely Kids in the Hall. I had a whole video tape full of the show and someone stole it At least I have Brain Candy when I need my fix, but it isn't quite the same.

Freaks and Geeks.

My dh and I discovered this in reruns on some cable channel a few years ago, and we were unaware that it was cancelled after one season, without warning, on a big cliffhanger, too. It was a great show. Linda Cardellini, who plays Sam the nurse on ER, had the main role as a high school girl on the show.

Oh, and I used to be obsessed with "Life Goes On," the one with the family who had a teen son with Down Syndrome, and Chad Lowe played Kellie Martin's boyfriend who had AIDS. LOVED that show.

kerikadi,
I didn't know anybody else watched Homefront. I LOVED!!!! that show. Whenever I see an actor that was on that show, all I can think is "Oh, he used to play so and so on Homefront."
Now back to your regularly scheduled topic.

Seinfield

That's the only show I can think of...we don't watch much tv. I did just catch Curb your Enthusiasm on HBO at a friend's house and am now contemplating ordering HBO for that show : Done by Seinfield producer, right? Something like that.
