This might take a while...

The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.
Crusade
Dark Angel
Joan of Arcadia
Tucker
Oliver Beene
Andy Richter Controls the Universe
Arrested Development
Better Off Ted
Negima!
Dungeons & Dragons
ReBoot
Freakazoid!
The Tick
Gargoyles
W.I.T.C.H.
The Spectacular Spider-Man


...and yes, those last three do have something in common.  hmpf

Of these, I'm of the opinion that Bruce Campbell is a little old to portray a young magical cowboy in The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.  Perhaps a mini-series movie on Sci-fi where old Brisco (portrayed by old Campbell) tells some sort of adventure story that happened earlier in his life... or something.

It would be nice if Arrested Development came back, but then again, Mitch Hurwitz did the best job he could to wrap up the story.

Everybody kind of grew up in Reboot, didn't they?  And as I recall, the mainframe got connected to the internet or something; probably AOL.  I mean, they could possibly reboot the show, but would they be able to get Gillian Anderson to do another guest appearance?

Gargoyles pretty much wrapped its storyline in a time enigma wrapped in a time paradox, and Xanatos ran away with the fox. roll eyes

Of your whole list, remakes of Freakazoid! and The Tick could arguably work.  Although, the latter did get that chance in live action (and failed miserably), but either could work in animation if it wanted to.  There weren't really any story arcs, and yet they both introduce entire casts of irrelevant villains that could be fodder for random story plots.  Right?

Most people say Scudworth somehow takes the flash freezer and puts it on Cloney Island, then a bunch of stupid fanfics were born.

Way way back in the new millenium,
Some nerdy message board fanficers,
Set about making new compendium,
So they wrote some slashfic garbage

Now the canon is abandoned,
The mary sues are gonna try,
One dimensional characteristics,
Dumb emotional conflict makes them
cry

So let's rewrite
CLONE HIGHHHH
Poorly written
CLONE HIGHHHH
It's fanfiction
CLONE HIGGHHHHH

I didn't think they could do that anymore. Normally these days everyone knows a show is going to be cancelled right after it begins, so the writers have the chance to write in an ending by the end of the last season. I didn't see the last season or so of My Name Is Earl. They changed the timeslot or something so I didn't know it was on.

I was reading online that Jason Lee says he wants to make a film about MNIE where Earl finishes the list, I'd prefer that to the cliffhanger we got... frown

From MNIE Wikipedia entry:
Quote
On the series premiere of Garcia's next series, Raising Hope, a newscaster in the background reports, "A small-time crook with a long list of wrongs he was making amends for has finally finished, and you'll never guess how it ended. However, the newscast is cut off before viewers can hear more.

I liked that show, despite it being full of Scientologist buddies. hmpf

Just remembered another one today: Assy McGee. I don't know how this show got ignored so badly on [adult swim]. A cop who plays by his own rules, has an alcohol problem and an ass for a face, and sounds like Sylvester Stallone?!? I'm glad to have recorded a few episodes 'cause they never even released a DVD. frown

Edit: Yes, I just realized I mentioned Assy on page 1. D'oh!

Firefly: no explanation is needed.

^ agree with

People will kill me for this but i would add "Babylon 5: Crusade" here..

yes many of the 13 episodes were silly compared to the main original series.. but the scripts released by JMS showed the direction he was going to move and i liked that. iot was going to deal with Bexter, with the telepath war, with the Drakh war and with the legazy of Clark on earthforce and its hiden black ops (ie: the shadowish ship who destroyed the EAS Cerverus)..unfortunatelly TNT had to get their hands on the series and mess with their stupid requests about more sex and action (episode 1 was shooted as demanded by TNT)


also just for trolling and for pure selfiness: Blue Thunder  laff

I also liked Andy Ricther's "Quintuplets", I want that back too. Other shows: King Of The Hill, Prison Break, Stargate. I'm sure I think of more later.

I can't believe I forgot to mention MADtv...It also saddens me that Sports with Norm McDonald hardly got a chance. Norm's awesome, and he's not in nearly enough movies or shows. While on the topic of CC sports shows, I'll also throw Onion Sportsdome into the mix of shows I'd like to see make a comeback.

Mad tv started out good but went downhill once it lost most of its original cast. The last few seasons were terrible

Very true. It was great with Nicole Sullivan, Aries Spears, Debra Wilson, Phil Lamarr, Dave Herman, and then later when they added Michael McDonald.

That's how I remember it. I stopped watching shortly after they left. But wait...you forgot about Miss Swan (Alex Borstein)!!



Phil Lamarr was in that, how did I miss that? And is that the same Dave Herman?

Yes on both counts (Editor's Note: Tofu_Lion just realized you only asked him one question), they were on the first season for sure, I'm not sure how long they stayed, Phil longer than Dave though.

And oh yeah, Ms. Swan- one of the cornerstones of the show. I though Stuart got annoying, but Ms. Swan was damn near always funny.

The initial cast was very talented and it shows in the fact that most of them are still working today, I stoppe watching around the time Bobby Lee came on
