This thread is for dearly departed TV shows, especially ones you'd love to see brought back.

I used to love: Firefly, Deadwood, Veronica Mars, The Dresden Files, and Buffy.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

Friends of course is in a league of its own.

I gotta agree that Friends is hilarious. I love the one where everyone finds out about Monica and Chandler, then screw with them..

My favorite Friends is the cheescake one - especially the last scene in the hall where Chandler and Rachel are eating it off the floor and Joey pulls the fork out of his pocket and joins them saying, "What are we having?"

My favourite has to be when Joey hits Ross, who goes to hit Joey who ducks and Ross hits a post, breaks his thumb, gets hit in the face by a door and, later, gets hit in the face again by Joey who went to hit Chandler who ducked. Let me know if this makes sense to you.

Yes, makes sense, scary, but it does - they do slapstick great

She was on friends. She was Joey's girl for one episode, kept beating him up with her tiny little fists.

P.S. She's hot as hell now...
