Terrific show. Only a couple of bad episodes.

Warehouse 13 would be my second choice.

"What's Happening", with everybody all grown up and on the latter end of their successful careers as lawyers, IT professionals, and in IT.
Shows can occasionally flash back to original episodes, if the writing is clever enough to craft a contemporary plot in a way that the flashbacks weave in nicely, not in a corny way.

Showing African American success stories like this - especially from meagre beginnings - would be inspiring. Cosby Show used to have that role, but no longer.

It is coming back, for 6 episodes. It says so in the article.

Lizzy Caplan is, like, unbelievably attractive in that show. She was like the girlfriend everybody wishes they had.

Lancelot Link was produced by the same folks who did Get Smart.  In fact, some of the Get Smart actors stayed on to do voices.


Doc from The Love Boat was a major actor in it

Amazon Prime's The Tick.

/Yes, I know you would personally prefer the 2001 Fox one. List it yourself, then.
//I swear the Amazon one was only canceled because it bore a vague resemblance to then-incoming The Boys.
///OK, and the ratings weren't quite good enough for it to be the one to keep

So yeah, this was TV when I was born and you wonder why I'm weird.

It's still so damn funny. This is probably where I learned how everything is absurd so don't sweat it.

Millennium. Lance Henriksen is only 81, which I'm fairly sure is the same age he was in the original back in the 90s.

They tried X-Files. Twice. Aside from that one monster-of-the-week episode with Rhys Darby it was pretty bad. I recall rage-deleting the saved episodes from the Tivo at the end of the first revival.

Bring back Orlando Jones, Pablo Schreiber and Mousa Kraish.

Oh yea.  With more Dungeons and Dragons.

F&G still has one of the most accurate fictional portrayals of an actual D&D game I've ever seen in any media:

Only if de-aging technology is also available. Because I am not sure I want to see a show where all the characters are middle aged and living in like the early 2000's.

Although I would totally watch a different show about Busy Philipps and Linda Cardellini hanging out and living in the early 2000's.

Except now Joe Rogan would run the station.
