Writer's Block: Gone but Not Forgotten

Many beloved television shows are no longer with us, like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Six Feet Under, and Mystery Science Theater 3000. What defunct television show do you miss the most?
First off, in what fucking universe are any of these shows - save MST3K - "beloved"? The only reason to watch Buffy, in my book, is because Allyson Hanigan has always been hot.

But to go over REAL shows, the only ones that I think could come back today, and not be fucked into oblivion, are Gargoyles and the old Batman: The Animated Series. Those cartoons were awesome.

More to the point... BUFFY? Buffy got a full run and an actual conclusion. (I consider a full run to be seven seasons because that's how long Star Treks used to last before ending on purpose. :p)

I can't actually say I miss either of my beloved cancelled shows because one I didn't see until YEARS after it had been cancelled (Firefly) and the other one isn't actually off the air yet (Pushing Daisies). :P

Well yes, but it's hard to miss a show you didn't see until it was off the air and on DVD. :p

Why is Six Feet Under even in there? I loved that show, but its placement doesn't make sense. It ended in 2005 for Christ's sake, and isn't anywhere near as popular as say, The Sopranos.

Ah,Gargoyles!, the forgotten cartoon!

My mom used to watch it with me when it came on! :T

I don't think there's anything that needs to come back. Today's TV can't handle yesterday's good shows, IMO.

The good thing is that, if I want to watch the shows I miss, they're all still out there. I mean, Hell, even TV Land has Night Court reruns for me.
