Favorite Show(s) that are RIP.

Recommended Posts

Northern Exposure

Excellent choice - can't believe I forgot to mention it. Absolutely wonderfully written and acted. Made you want to sell all your belongings and start over in Alaska. And like WKRP, the DVD releases kind of disappoint because they couldn't get the rights (or more accurately, couldn't afford the rights - thanks, music labels) to the music played on the shows. And the music was integral to the experience the shows brought.

That was a GREAT show. My favorite at the time. I wonder why reruns are not on the air? I wish Netflix would pick it up.

X-Files.

 

 

Lost.

 

Loved the X-Files...hated how David Duchovney drug it down in the end cause of money. But I guess that happens a lot to good shows.

 

The Shield

 

Great cast...too bad the show spiralled out of control the last season and a half!

FX seems to cancel all the shows I like. How does Terriers not get renewed. The Riches was pretty good. The Shield and Nip/Tuck. Deadwood was awesome. I might have to stick with just watching sports all the time. Pretty sure none those will get cancelled.

Nip/Tuck really really spiraled out of control, I thought.

Agreed. Nip/Tuck and The Shield both did. I think it has to do with writers scrambling to find a way to end the shows though. The Shield started down hill after they killed off Lem. Nip/Tuck had to many problems with the Sean and Julia thing.

Nip/Tuck, after the Carver Killer, really just got way to weird. Like, it did not need to be that way, they could have just kept it a regular show.

Yeah, they had one more season on their deal with Spike, but a couple of months ago they were told Spike wasn't gonna pick that 4th season up. The producers thought about shopping the series to other stations, but after a couple of days informed the staff and crew they were just ending it. For shame.

Agree, they could have easily slowed it down and ran that show several more seasons but seven seasons was it and they had to get to an ending. BTW, I thought the final episode was great, unlike a lot of other good shows that ended with crappy finales. I doubt I ever see Chiklis in a better role then Vic. Also thought CCH Pounder and Forest Whitaker were awesome.

OZ-loved the show and really, really didn't want to ever end up in prison after watching it. :o

 

 

Trailer Park Boys. Thank you Justin.tv and youtube or I would have never known about this show. It's one of those shows you can watch rerun after rerun and it never gets old. A lot like MASH in that way for me.

The Shield was everything that Law and Order and Hill Street Blues WANTED to be....tough, gritty, and telling the kind of f'd up stories that are usually reserved for the obituaries.

Hill Street Blues is one of my all time favorite cop shows. Law & Order the Ed Green years.

There's a few from HBO I miss.

 

Tales From the Crypt

Mr. Show with Bob and David

Tenacious D (only one season, but it was goddamned glorious, maybe my favorite of all time)

The Kids in the Hall

Dream On - (don't remember if this was any good, but I remember a lot of boobs, so it was inherently good)

Arliss

Oz - (this show was great until they went overboard with the prison rape)

HUSKER 37, You have wide ranging tastes in television. Very wide. :lol:

 

 

 

For some on your list, I could see myself cracking open a beer and really enjoying them:

Boston Legal

Bullwinkel

Seinfeld

Northern Exposure

George Michael's Sports Machine

The Dead Zone

Family Guy

 

 

 

Others I probably would not be inclined to watch. Because I don't wear pink fuzzy bedroom slippers when I watch TV:

Desperate Housewives (KILL ME NOW)

Melrose Place (shhhh!)

Mad About You

Dharma and Greg

 

:lol:

I even missed some.

 

Wings

Dinosaurs..

 

Really..I was just going to go with Sportsnight and Friday Night lights..But then I started thinking about the shows I watched just because I thought one or 5 of the actresses was purty..and then I involved google..then it got outa hand a leetle...

I just liked ogleing Janine Turner..Even if she WAS a texan.

 

But yeah..The music probably was what kept me within earshot whenever it was on..And gave me a new appreciation for some obcure music..I'm vaguely hearing some accordian in the back of my head now..and maybe some Brudda IZ.

 

And it's good to hear someone else had thoughts of chucking it all and going to Alaska..Despite my fear of Snow..My Siberian Husky would love it.

I really miss Blade: The Series. It was only on for one brief season and while the acting and action started shaky, the show definitely improved and towards the end it really started to take on a Wesley Snipes/Blade movie feel. It starred Jill Wagner as human turned vampire Krista Starr.

Northern Exposure was a great show because it showed almost all the charactors being happing in their life. It didn't matter if they were rich or poor they just enjoyed life. They were a little quirky but happy. The last couple of years it was on were not very good though after Dr. Fleishman left the show it wasn't nearly as good.

Seinfeld is probably my all time fav sit com.

 

I could have watched Deadwood on HBO for 10 more seasons easily....only went 3.

 

Arrested Development.....apparently been resurrected in the form of a movie and 1 tv season.

 

 

EDIT: of course I didnt read the first page of this thread and come to realize everything has been mentioned already.

Arrested Development is my favorite show no longer in production. I'm extremely happy they're doing a new season and making a film now, though.

I think you are the second person to mention Dream On. I kind of remember it but not that well. I think I remember boobs?

 

I'd completely forgotten the show...Might have seen a handfull of episodes durring free preview weekends?

 

I woke up with the tv on a couple of mornings ago and saw an actress I remember liking a decade? ago but couldn't remember what I saw her in..The only show I remember watching of hers listed was "Dream On"...I still think it was somewhere else that I saw her..Seems like she played a neighbor or sister of the main character in some "chick series"...

 

pretty sure she wasn't Gabrielle to Zena..(Why do I always seem to get more attracted by the main Female character's sidekick?)...<Bolded to insure it shows up on "Out of Context" quote thread>..

Corinne Bohrer.(Still can't believe she's older than me)..

 

Betty Rubble...

Mary Ann...

Helen Hunt's goofy sister in Mad About You...

Elizabeth MontGomery as her own cousin in Bewitched...

Old Girlfriends' roomates..

This show was amazing. Needs to be on Netflix.

 

I just finished watching all the episodes on Netflix last week. Very, very sad that there was only 1 season :(

 

 

 

 

 

 

In other news, the original plan for Arrested Development was to do 10 episodes followed by a movie. Now they are saying that they shot too much footage and it will be more like 12-15 episodes and a movie!!
