And you know, it's not as bad as it was, just a year or two ago, since it seems like every show is coming out on DVD, but..

For me, it's NYPD Blue. I was devoted to that show. Tuesdays at 10PM were fixed for it seems like forever for both Mrs. AWA and I for years. I think she liked it more than I did. I still think it's the closest to depicting real coppertude (that was me in a former life) of any cop show.

But the DVDs? Heck, I'd never get around to them....

I read the question as "which show do I miss appearing on?"

I don't remember actually being on any show, so I soon realized that's not what you meant!


I miss Homicide: Life on the Street. The DVD sets ease the pain, but I new shows would be good. Maybe I will have to try Andre Braugher's new show, eh?

I miss "Angel". While it can be argued that the series was getting a bit stale, I think that the last season was strong and had quite a few possibilities for the future. I'm still hoping that a movie is in the works, but if Joss decides not to go that route, I understand and still have the DVDs to fall back on.

Which was why I was going to be smarmy and say the game show I did for my high school's local access station. But now I won't.

I, too, miss Homicide. And the real That 70's Show (this season is actually the first season of a spinoff called "What Would Happen if That 70's Show Sucked?").

I miss "Oz". That was the only show I've watched the entire run of beginning to end as it was shown.

My first choice would be "Newsradio" with Phil Hartman, not Jon Lovitz. Since they can't bring that show back, I'd settle for more episodes of "Unsolved Mysteries".

For some weird reason, in my dreams I still think that show still airs opposite the Price is Right. Those ad naseum reruns got to my head.

You know, I really miss Viva Variety sometimes. I don't know how popular that show ever was with other people, but I always got a kick out of it.

I miss both the X-Files and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. Both were weekly staples of my life, and I dared not miss a single minute of either. I've found neat replacements in the Office and Battlestar Galactica, but it's not really the same.

Homicide and Angel, definitely.

I think Enterprise was cut just as the new creative team was starting to turn it around, and I wish they'd had at least a few more seasons to see what they could do.

And while Babylon 5 overstayed its welcome, I wish JMS had had more time with Crusade.

Firefly.

Much like Angel, it was canceled just as I found it...I feel cursed that way sometimes.

edit: Serenity was the MOVIE..not the SHOW...oops.

Very good. And being a journalism major with broadcasting experience, I'd like to throw my hat in the ring to replace the late Robert Stack.

You heard it here first, folks.....

I liked Viva Variety. Along those same lines I miss "The State" on MTV as well as new episodes of Beavis and Butthead.

It is not off yet but I will miss "The West Wing" when it takes a final bow in a few weeks. I have watched that show since Day One and I hate to see it go.

If they can convince Scott Bakula & Dean Stockwell to reprise their roles, I would once again be tuned in to NBC at 10:00PM every Tuesday for first-run episodes of "Quantum Leap"...

Junkyard Wars / Scrapheap Challenge.

Full Metal Challenge to a lesser extent. It was an interesting idea that never got a second season.

Angel is at the top of my list by far.

Dead Like Me and Deeps Space Nine would also make the list of shows that I miss watching. I guess Arrested Development is also on the list now too.

And Hercules The Legendary Journeys is one that I miss watching on TV too. Even if it was just re-runs. Growing up, Saturday 4-6pm was Hercules/Xena.

I've got all the DVDs for these shows, but it's just not the same as turning on the TV and catching your favorite show. You also lose a lot of the build-up when the commercial act-break takes only 2 seconds to be resolved instead of a couple minutes.
