TV Shows We Wish Would Get A Revival
Right now TV show revivals are all the rage. From Will Grace to The X-Files and even Rosanne later this month, we are getting an influx of old shows returning with new episodes. While it’s not exactly a new thing (remember The Brady Bunch, The Dukes of Hazzard, The Andy Griffith Show, Leave It To Beaver, and many others all returned at some point with the original cast), what is new is that the returning shows have been not only decent quality, but have also been getting pretty good ratings. Here are some cancelled shows we wish would come back.
Seinfeld: While this seemed like a dream that would never come true, Jerry Seinfeld recently stoked the fire by saying “It’s possible” on an episode of Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. The series really does need to comeback, even if only for a few episodes, mainly because the final episode was so poor. At thevery least it would be interesting to see where Jerry and the gang are after so many years.
Buffy The Vampire Slayer: A return of Buffy could go several ways. Like the X-Files, the series was starting to get stale by the end, but after several years off (wow has it really been 15 years?) the series could have a fresh re-start. Unfortunately since vampires don’t age, it could be hard explaining how Angel and Spike have grown older. Still, there are ways around it, and people would tune in to see everyone in action once again.
Firefly: It’s really hard making a list of this nature, and not putting Firefly on it. After all the series was cancelled before it was really given a chance, and the follow-up movie really didn’t do anything but make us want more. Yes, it’s another Joss Whedon show, but it deserves another go.
Quantum Leap: By the time the fifth season of Quantum Leap hit the air, the stories had really gone downhill. The show had started to sputter along, and it was not surprising when it was cancelled. That being said, fans deserved better than the got for a final episode. With a disappointing ending like that, the show deserves a comeback to clean up the mess they left behind.
Friends: They say it will never happen, and yet, the show is still one of the most popular shows on Netflix, and that’s after the series ended 14 years ago. Getting everyone together seems to be the hardest part, but something can be done to help that can’t it? Of course the ending of the series was perfect, so maybe it’s best not to mess that up.
