If you could bring back one TV show...

If you could bring back one cancelled television show which one would you choose? Try to keep it recent though because for example it wouldn't make sense to bring back The Cosby Show since they would all be too old or bring back Different Strokes since two of the main characters are dead.

For me I would be torn between two shows. Firstly, My Name Is Earl. The show ran for four seasons and was suddenly cancelled after the fourth. The fourth season even ended on To Be Continued so obviously it was very unexpected by the crew. There was still so many stories left in that show and it could easily have ran for another four seasons. The list had over 200 items and they kept adding more so there was plenty to go on. Plus we need to find out who Earl Jrs real dad is.

The other would be Reno 911! Hilarious comedy which was cancelled after six seasons. One of the funniest shows on television and it just didn't get old. Only ran for 87 episodes and there was easily a few more seasons in it especially since they altered the cast slightly in the last season.

What show would you want to bring back?

Two for me. One's an '80's show called "It's A Knockout" which was a really silly competition between different teams coming from different towns, but it was one of the most fun things I've ever seen. Think school sports day on narcotics.

The other is a short lived comedy called "Fawlty Towers". It lasted all of 8 episodes, much to the disappointment of the audience.

I love that show, watch it all the time on DVD. Fantastic writing and John Cleese is a comedic genius. It was a shame only 12 episodes were made, six for each season, as each episode is great comedy.

There's probably some shows I'm forgetting, but I'm gonna go with a show that I used to really like:

It's all relative - if you've seen it then you're automatically that much cooler, but if you haven't, I'll explain. Basically, this girl is getting married to a guy. She has two gay Dads, and he has Irish, pub owning parents. I thought it was brilliant, but it got cancelled, possibly because the network it was running on had Republican owners who weren't happy that the father actors were both gay. That'd be my first choice, so screw all of you bastards.

I think that Futurama has been cancelled. It was brought back for a bit if I remember right but now it has all finished and re-runs are only shown.

I have another show that I thought of the other day which I would want brought back. Whose Line Is It Anyway? The American version. This was a fantastic show and I wish that it didn't end. They did many, many episodes of it but it never seemed repetitive or stale, the comedians were so good they kept it fresh and funny all the time. Ryan, Colin and Wayne always on the show was a great decision, rotating the fourth spot kept it fresh and allowed different games to be played. Drew Carey was also good as host always willing to be the butt of the joke for a laugh.

I KNEW BINGO WOULD LIKE FAWTLY TOWERS! If we're talking about shows like that, then i'd bring back Blackadder :p! what an awesome show that was. I'd also bring back Dads army, that always made me lol.

In terms of more recent shows, then hands down for me, it is Prison Break. I loved everything about it. The great story writing, the amazing characters, the twists and turns...it was all just fantastic, and I really, really miss it.
