Gone But Not Forgotten

I couldn't pass this one up! A bunch of cool writers over at Something Else To Distract Me are hosting a blogfest right up my alley: Favorite television shows that we miss but that are no longer making new episodes.  We are to list our Top Five.  With the exception of #1, I tried to keep it in the last decade.  Here are mine:

1) SEINFELD - My all-time fave. I've seen each episode at least 100 times.

2) FIREFLY - Who was the SyFy genius that decided to cancel this show?! This show rocked.

3) PRIVILEGED - This was a guilty pleasure for me. Just when I started to love it, the show got cancelled. Figures.

4) LOST - Pure genius. I loved this show and totally heart Josh Holloway and still secretly dream of escaping to a deserted island somewhere.

5) MOONLIGHT - Another guilty pleasure and thank god they found a new home for Alex O'Loughlin on the new and improved HAWAII FIVE-0 or I think my heart would have broken in two.

What shows do you miss the most?

I don't know all these shows, but I LOVE Firefly and I did enjoy the bits of Lost I saw (haven't seen much of it really).

Oh, and Seinfeld is definitely classic ;)

I'm with you on Firefly! And I only saw Moonlight in syndication. LOVE Alex and now I'm hooked on H50.
I'll have to look up Privileged.
Thanks, Liz.

Moonlight was one of my favorite and I bet CBS is kicking themselves for letting that one go. At least they found a vehicle for Alex.

I miss Picket Fences.

Yay for Seinfeld and LOST -- both are on my list today, too! And Firefly keeps popping up during this blogfest. I have got to look for it in syndication :))

Shirley Wells said...

Yes, I think Seinfeld would top my list too. Loved that show!

Oh, this is fun! I've tried Firefly twice and can't get into it. I want to, because I love Nathan Fillion, and everyone raves about it -- but it doesn't work for me. LOL

Two of my fave "no mores" are from this past season: "Terriers" and "The Good Guys". The first had quirky characters and Donal Logue, and the second one was silly but fun with Colin Hanks and Bradley Whitford.

Claire Robyns said...

LOL, when I saw Moonlight, I immediately thought of Moonlighting, with Bruce Willis, anyone remember that one?

Totally agree with your list

Erinn said...

excellent LIST. 100% perfect


Great List. Thanks for joining in on the fun!

Dan said...

Seinfeld's on my list.

Hannah Kincade said...

I love Seinfeld! I never really include sitcoms on my lists though.

Firely was/is awesome. It's a good thing the movie got to wrap some loose ends up though.

Privileged- never seen...

Lost- Own. Love.

Moonlight- It had it's flaws but it was a fun show as well! Good thing True Blood is on to keep my vampire fix going.

Laura Howard said...

Wow, what a huge showing for Firefly! Everyone misses this one! I've never seen it, but I know it's on Netflix watch instantly, so I NEED to catch up... I love this bloghop!

Linda Leszczuk said...

Saving Grace. It broke my heart when she was cancelled.

Marianne Arkins said...

In recent history? JAG.

Otherwise, I have to go back to high school: Remington Steele, Moonlighting, The A-Team, the original Battlestar Galactica ... and so many more. I had many TV loves then.

Cool choices! Great list!

Mo said...

I will have to look in to Moonlight, never seen it. Thanks!

Murees Dupé said...

Firefly was great and it also made my list.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Firefly! Good for you.

KO: The Insect Collector said...

Ahh Seinfeld and Lost-- two great ones!

Marie Rearden said...

Firefly again. I apparently really missed out! And Seinfeld was hilarious. Love Jerry's stand-up.

I missed Dean Cain's Superman when it stopped!

Loved Seinfeld. I miss Arrested Development.

Liz Fichera said...

Thanks for the comments! It's been fun traveling around to read peoples' lists. SEINFELD and FIREFLY are definite favorites!

DEZMOND said...
