    With Sex & the City ended this TV season, it makes me wonder there have been a lot of shows that are gone and fans no doubt still miss them. Here are some shows that I still miss,

    1. Beverly Hills 90210
    2. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
    3. Seinfeld
    4. Xena: Warrior Princess
    5. Hercules: the lengendary journies
    6. The X-files
    7. Ally McBeal
    8. Dark Angel
    9. Roswell
    10. Walker Texas Ranger
    11. Party of Five

    What cancelled shows you missed the most?

    My most missed show is probably Buffy, although it shouldn't be in a list of cancelled shows as it just finished, I am sure the networks would have loved more series of it.

    I also do miss new episodes of the X-Files, but it went well past its sell by date anyway, should have finished at Season 7.

    Also
    DS9
    Space Above and Beyond
    Dark Angel
    Roswell

    And Angel (its not as good without Cordy), although I am still hopeful that UPN will pick it up like they did with Buffy.

    Television series interest me more than mere movies, but there are precious few that I felt hadn't run their course. One exception would be Catweazle.

    Farscape.

    I would also love to see a film version of the tv show Buffy The Vampire Slayer which has now ended.

    A second X Files film please.

    The Outer Limits (The original)
    The Invaders
    The Prisoner
    The Greatest American Hero (quite a few still to be shown, also was transmitted at different time across all the regions so never got the recognition in the UK as it deseved).
    Babylon 5 (which ended with a plot still un-resolved).
    Wrestling (the type introduced by Kent Walton).
    The Avengers
    And the type of programs that where produced by ITC? Like The Baron, The Saint, The Champions, Randall and Hopkirk(Deceased) etc which where fun.

    The show was based on a film, but I'm not sure you'll enjoy it that much.

    I saw the film when it was released at the cinema, and I quite liked it. But I'm not sure anyone else did. Donald Sutherland is in it, but it's not his best work...

    Hi,

    My list would have to include:

    - War Of The Worlds (probably my first, true chance to see what good-quality, cable-TV style sci-fi can be like)

    - The Prisoner (Just what the heck was going on?!)

    - Early Edition (I so wish that someone would air this fantastic show properly, in the UK, after ITV ballsed-it-up as usual.)

    - Millennium

    - Dark Angel

    - Farscape

    - Joe 90

    - Captain Scarlet And The Mysterons

    - Dark Skies (If only it could have been given its full five-year arc!)

    - Babylon 5

    - Vengeance Unlimited (very short-lived US crime drama, where Michael Madsen of "Reservoir Dogs" fame played Mr Chapel, a man who would get revenge for you, and then he would ask you, one day in the future, for a favour of one kind or another! Wonderfully creepy! Was shown once on Channel 4, and hasn't been seen ever again on any UK TV stations!)

    - Brimstone (Superb serial-killer/revenge TV show, with a lot of poignancy as well.)

    - Crime Story (Michael Mann's 1987 crime show)

    - Tour Of Duty

    - Alien Nation: The Series

    - Cracker (The best British crime show!)

    I notice that nearly everyone is citing cult TV shows. It seems no one's going to miss "Eastenders" or "Big Brother" (if they ever end) or shows like "Inspector Morse", "Footballer's Wives" or "Shameless", for example.

    Pooch

    I think that just shows how good American t.v series are compared to the British equivalent or lack of.

    We do tend to get the best of the American imports a lot of the other stuff is suppose to be right dross.

    We seem to have lost the knack of producing action adventure programs, apart from the usual soaps, reality, you have the hospital/police/law which are in the region of plays rather than in the area of films. As I said above where is the like of ITC type programs ie The Avengers, The Persuaders.

    Some more episodes of Teen Titans wouldn't go amiss- I've seen all the current crop.
    There are a couple of UK shows I'd like to see kick back into life;
    Ultraviolet
    Jeeves and Wooster
    Big Train
    That Sci Fi quiz that was hosted by Greg Proops.

    U.F.O..... had me hooked and still miss it today.

    The Tomorrow People....always wanted one of those belts to 'teleport'

    The Champions......always thought I could be telepathic after watching it.

    Oh dear I'd better stop before I show my age even further:blush:
