Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen TV shows I miss by Mechele Armstrong

1. Buffy the Vampire Slayer—the last season not counting, it was excellent TV. A musical? Spike and Drusilla? A tortured vampire with a soul? Willow and Oz? Willow and Tara? Great stories. And the whole thing was based on Joss Whedon wanting the blond girl in the alley to have her moment. I own the whole series on DVD but still miss its heyday.

2. Highlander—Adrian Paul. *sigh* I loved how they kept changing the show, which made sense for a couple of hundred year old immortal. Again, I’m not counting the last season (hmm a trend?)

3. Firefly--*cringes* I didn’t watch this show when it was on. I wish I had. I love it now.

4. Drive—we hardly got to know the premise but I was enjoying. Until they pulled the plug *sigh*.

5. Farscape—onboard a living ship anything can happen and usually did. The progression of John Crichton was awesome.

6. Roseanne—not the last season. I loved the humor, especially the early days of the show with Darlene. So funny and so real lifeish. At least my life *G*.

7. Space—Boooo yah! Just like eating pancakes. Only one season but they did so much. Hmm either I don’t like the last season or they are one season shows LOL.

8. Jeremiah—Luke Perry and Malcolm Jamal Warner in an apocalyptic storyline where the children were left behind. I want a third season darn it.

9. American Gothic—Someone’s at the door. Creepy little take on towns.

10. The Beverly Hillbillies—LOL the cement pond and Jethro’s ciphering still make me cackle

11. Friends—the early years. The humor made the show and the tension between Ross and Rachel. “He’s her lobster.”

12. Brisco County Junior—On the DVD, the cast members talk about it and they sound so proud to have been a part of the show. I loved “The coming thing” and the growing relationship between Lord Bowler and Brisco.

13. Star Trek the Next Generation. I’m married to a Trekkie what can I say? The stories were excellent and so were the characters.

I had not even heard of most of those shows! I would like to add one of my own to the list, Dead Like Me, the story of a dead girl who is forced to reap souls. It was SO great and they killed it off after 2 seasons.
