Top 5 TV Shows You Would Love To See Come Back!

Don’t you just wish you could get one more season, or in some cases, more than one season overall for that awesome show you loved?! Some shows (like Lost or House) ended on their terms, but some shows were perhaps cut a little short leaving us wanting more. What are the top 5 shows you wish would return?

5. Deadwood – This spot could have gone to any number of shows. I thought of every childhood show I loved, The West Wing, Studio 60, Six Feet Under, Battlestar Galactica, etc, but then I gave it to Deadwood for one reason: Al Swearengen. Is that enough for you to understand? No? Well Swearengen is one of my favorite characters of all time. Dude is the epitomy of bad ass. He is the foul mouthed brothel owner that simply does not care about you or the horse you rode in on. Alas, when you make a show about a town that burns down, you have an expiration date. Sort of like making a movie about the Titanic. That doesn’t mean I wouldn’t love to see more of Al Swearengen.

4. Party Down – Seriously, this show was stopped way too soon. Again, a show that might have been before it’s time, it was a show that lost actors to other roles. Jayne Lynch left for Glee and Adam Scott left for Park’s and Recreation, which is too bad since this show was better than both of those shows! There is at least a little hope for this show making a comeback, at least in the form of a movie. Evidence here.

3. The Sopranos – Maybe it ended on a weird note and I honestly believe that Tony Soprano was shot and killed, but do they have to take that away from us?! What if he wasn’t? I know there wouldn’t be much of a show without Tony, but there is no closure for the family either! AND WHY COULDN’T MEADOW JUST PARK THAT DAMN CAR!? This was a show that left us with some many questions they should make one more season just to let us know!

2. Seinfeld – Maybe everyone is a little older. Maybe the actors are finding other interests or just huge racists, but I would wager the 76 million households that watched the Finale would probably tune in to see a reunion as well. In the meantime, we will have to get our fix on the endless repeats that can be found at almost any time of the day and with some Curb Your Enthusiasm.

1. Firefly – Obviously. If you haven’t seen this show yet, please do yourself a favor. A show that was utterly screwed up by FOX by airing episodes out of order, this show was perhaps before it’s time. Were it aired now, in a culture much more accepting of “geeks and nerds”, it might have thrived. This is the show that everyone hopes might make a comeback some day, and with the success of Joss Whedon and the Avengers, who knows? Maybe someday? We can at least hope for it!

    1) Parks and Rec is a great show. I have never seen Party Down and don’t usually go in for shows that were cancelled as I always want more, but Parks and Rec is awesome.
    2) I was a recent victim of a Seinfeld rerun. Does not hold up. If ever you need that kind of fix, watch Curb, it’s better.
    3) No Arrested? Really?

    1) Arrested Development
    2) Firefly
    3) Freaks and Geeks

  2. 1) West Wing. Loved that show so much, I just want more. Good thing there’s Newsroom to help me get my fast-talkin fix.
    2) Arrested Development. Yeah, I know it’s coming back. But I’ve thought this for a while, so it counts.
    3) Party Down. For all reasons previously mentioned.
    4) Firefly. Fox tends to screw over it’s shows and this one didn’t get a fair chance.
    5) ummmm…that’s it. No more shows that I REALLY wanted to see more of. Although I’ve heard “Freaks and Geeks” as well as “Undeclared” were very good, I’ve never watched any of either. They can count as tied for 5th.

    Two of my favorites have already returned – Hawaii Five-O and Dallas. Wouldn’t mind seeing returns of Magnum PI, 24, The Beverly Hillbillies, Hogan’s Heroes and Star Trek (with Chris Pine as Capt. Kirk).
