WHAT TV SHOW HAS GONE OFF THE AIR...

...but you wish it had gone on forever?

1. It's been 18 years, and I still miss Dallas on Friday nights.

2. I LOVE Alias. On my swine time, I rewatched the first 2 years. What a magnificent show!

3. Also by JJ Abrams: I already dread the last show of Lost next year.

4. And I dread the end of Monk.

Journeyman.

Interesting plot developments started popping up all over the place, but they cancelled it after just one season! That came as quite a shock to me.

Also, Pushing Daisies. I found it interesting that they cancelled it when it seemed like they were going to start another season.

Back to You was another good one. However, I do think they ruined it when they replaced Chuck's and Kelly's daughter with someone completely different (which they also did with 'Til Death, but that one hasn't been cancelled...yet).

I LOVED Pushing Daisies, I was really disappointed when it went off. A couple of years ago, there was a show, I think, called Boomtown, that I thought was well done, but I must have been the only one.
I love Charmed, and still watch it everyday, I know its time had come but I wish something in that vein would come along. And I wish there was a current Star Trek....

Martina - I can't wait till the opening of the new Star Trek movie this Friday - I've heard talk of producing this movie for literally decades!!

Maybe it will be so popular that it will bring on the next Star Trek series.

I really loved pushing Daisies also. I heard that they are going to air the last three episodes sometime this month! I also really liked Keen Eddie - very different and very enjoyable - I don't think it got a proper chance.

Dark Shadows scared me spitless!! My heart was pounding when I watched it. But I couldn't miss it! And I was in my 20s, maybe early 30s!!

Vickie, I agree on Stargate SG1 with Richard Dean Anderson. They carried on the series without him, but it wasn't the same. Don't know if the new version is on the air or not.

Also loved X-Files! The absolute best and creepiest episode ever was "Home" -- although I understand that it was only shown once on network TV. After that, it was decided that it was way too spooky and unpalatable. It was the one with the three brothers riding around in the old car with the mama under the bed. Still sends shivers up my spine! Also loved the one on the circus folks. Really, I loved them all! Okay, bring it back! What a wonderful, weird and thought-provoking series!

Susan.. I totally remember that episode of X Files.. creeped me right the freak out.

Justin.. Star Trek TNG was my favourite series of the Star Trek franchise

Vickie…Quantum Leap was one of my favourites too

Karen.. my daughter watches the news on her favourite series’ all the time.. she too said that they are airing the last 3 episodes of Pushing Daisies.. what a fun show!

I’m such a girl but I still miss Knots Landing.. and Friends.

The end of Lost will be the end of me

Star Trek Enterprise...probably most people's least favorite, for good reason, but the 4th season was really, really good. It was finally hitting it's stride. And any of the other Treks, as well.

John Doe...what a season ender...but then it wound up being the series ender. Horrible way to end the series.

Babylon 5...I know it was designed to be a five year show, but still...

Quantum Leap
X-Files
Whose Line Is It Anyway?...I never get tired of this show.
Mystery Science Theater 3000
Journeyman
Monday Night Football on ABC

Probably others I can't think of right now!

Martina, you weren't alone - one other TV set was faithfully tuned to every episode of Boomtown. I could not believe the 2-parter about the blackout and the accident didn't win a raft of Emmys. It was as good as TV gets. Same thing for the next show from the same creative team, Raines, with Jeff Goldblum. It was getting better with every show (coolest opening sequence ever), the character was just taking on dimension and complexity, and I was furious and cried real tears when it was killed without really getting a chance to find its audience. Still mad.

My all-time favorite show that I'll never stop missing is Homicide: Life on the Streets. The book it was based on is fantastic, by the way.

When I said that the last three episodes of Pusing Daisies was going to be aired I meant to say unaired episodes as of yet. It should at least offer some closure to the short lived series!

Straddling time, space and the pond - I second both Allena's 'Alfred Hitchcock Presents...' and Davidf's 'Jossy's Giants'.
I don't think a stranger sentence was ever written...

I would also like more of:
'Starsky and Hutch'
'The Rockford Files'
'The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (with David McCallum before he went all Sapphire and Steel)
'Sapphire and Steel' (with David McCallum before he went all NCIS)
'Glen Michael's Cartoon Cavalcade' (The only time on a Sunday afternoon in Scotland that you were allowed to smile)
'Call of Duty'
'Morecambe and Wise Christmas Specials' (Um, possibly only achievable with necromancy or time travel. I'm OK with either.)

Fainodraino - I'm on board with your entire list - minus Monday Night Football, cause it just wouldn't be the same without Don Meredith. "Turn Out The Lights..."

Rural channel (RFD) still broadcasts old Porter Waggoner shows - you should catch it and see Dolly Parton back when she was a sweet looking kid who could still stand up straight, sans extra chest and wigs.

I forgot how sad I was when Lois and Clark disappeared (Teri Hatcher and Dean Cain...he was PRETTY!)
