Joan of Arcadia.

That seemed like it was going to be around for years, then -poof- it was gone.

Same here. That was great drama and really creative storytelling. It was the kind of series that could only exist on HBO. I wish the DVDs weren't so dam expensive.

Make me the third person in the thread to include Deep Space Nine, and the second person that will soon add The West Wing to my list.

I didn't know Sports Night existed while it was on (and apparently I'm not alone), but if I had watched it while it was on, I'd be missing it fiercely right now. As it is, I'm upset that they didn't make more than two seasons of it.

Until recently I would have said Kim Possible, but a couple months ago-- woo!-- Disney announced that they'd renewed the show for at least 22 more episodes. Boo-yeah!

NewsRadio (duh). Also add in Futurama and Dead Like Me. Especially DLM. At least NR and Futurama had some sense of closure. DLM had questions/storylines left to be explored.

Good lord, your userid is true.

But I do too. The looks. Art whazisname, Aunt Flabby (was is flabby or gabby? It was something like that), The Team time Movie, The awesome jokes, he was the king of the monologue, Carnak (although I think Paul Shaeffer does a nice job reprising it on Letterman), Hope walking on. The animals, the birdcalls (and again, I am glad Letterman continues that), and just Johnny being Johnny.

You know, when I first read this I thought, "but I was never on a TV show". Duh...

I'll also voice some love for Oz, although the new version of Oz is pretty good. It's called Law & Order:SVU.

I miss Carnival, another HBO gem which should still be on the air.

Bill Nye decided his science cred was too important to risk with Speedwalker. That was a funny sketch.

I also loved DS9, UK Office, Sorkin's West Wing and Sports Night, but I just had a flashback.

I was emailing a friend about Kingdom Hears 2 and how his girlfriend would love it because Tron was in it. It got me thinking about Automan. I LOVED that show when I was six. It would suck today, but back then it was sooo cool because it borrowed heavily from Tron.

Likewise...but the TV show (well, game show) I was on is still running. Canadians in their late 20s will remember VIDEO and ARCADE TOP 10...I was on there twice, and won once.

Anyhow...

The shows I miss, that I used to enjoy watching:

Beakman's World
Bill Nye the Science Guy
Bizarre
Camp Wilder
Dead Like Me
GI Joe
GO BOTS
WCW Saturday Night
WWF Superstars
WWF Cavalcade of Wrestling

I also remember a game show where the entire idea was to NOT LAUGH at a comedian. Can anyone remember it?

Since many are going with more than one, I'll throw "Oz" out there as another show I sorely miss.

Anyone else remember Manimal? I have distinct memories of this show, for some reason.
