Nice!!!

Awww, thanks for not picking on me. :(

They always cancel the shows I like mid-run hah. I wish someone would pick up and continue:
Carnivale -- creepy, weird, but very well written and acted
Dead Like Me -- hilarious, and a bit weird, excellent writing and acting

Dexter hasn't been cancelled yet, but they need to show it on a channel I don't have to pay extra for ;( And they'll likely cancel it as soon as they find out I like it, and then i'd have to kill someone.

I just feel like Dexter is on its way to being cancelled. I mean, what could they possibly do in the 3rd season? make Deb a serial killer too?! That said, I would really hate having no Dexter to watch.

I also miss Pushing Daisies, but it's also not cancelled.

Futurama on the other hand, I would kill several people to get back on the air. Even if they're making movies every so often to keep the masses at peace.

I'm not a fan of Dexter... I don't really like its moral. I mean, it's fine to kill people, as long as you have the desire to and they are "bad" people?

I know that I stated this somewhere in this forum earlier this year , but then again maybe it was another forum .

I want X-Files back , I still enjoyed it when Fox and Scully left the show , but apparently not enough of the other fans felt the same .

I also want to see the old Night Stalker series ( the remake deserves oblivion * gag , ack , barf , cry * ) staring the grossly under rated (IMHO) Darren McGavin .

Well, I'm not sure it (or any show for that matter) really has a moral as such. I think it's just a really fascinating what-if kind of show that brings up a lot of good questions about absolute and relative morality. Why should killing be excepted from the 'relative' category? Plus damn good writing and acting!

I agree on Futurama... best friggin cartoon ever (possibly tied with sealab 2020, which has now been un-cancelled!).

I wouldn't kill to see it again, but I certainly wouldn't complain if they came out with a third season of Jeremiah.

HELL YES! Those made my Saturdays!

Teen Titans (Cartoon Network)
Ren and Stimpy
Rugrats (The original, not this new crap.)

Please please PLEASE bring them back! I want my kids to enjoy those shows! xD

Firefly!!!! I know people have said this before, but I'll say it again! FIREFLY!
Kaylee: Wash, tell me I'm pretty.
Wash: If I were unwed, I would take you up in a manly fashion.
Kaylee: 'Cause I'm pretty?
Wash: 'Cause your pretty.

It's a broken hearts parade
And I'm putting my heart out on display
There's no masquerade
Just a funeral march for love today
The band strikes up and they're playing a song
Dressed in black, and we're singing along to the
Broken hearts parade
I've never been better then I am today

The OLD Nickelodeon show "You Can't Do that on Television"! It had wretched jokes, was the origin of the famous green slime, and towards the end of it's run, had Alannis Morisette as one of the cast of children. I know this makes me old that I know about this. It makes me older that I was watching this as an adult!

I also want more episodes of "Danger Mouse". And Blackadder Five.

Thank goodness for Netflix. I'm catching up on Lost, The Tick, Dinosaurs, Red Dwarf, The Muppet Show, and Sledge Hammer! And I can watch old episodes of Doctor Who (from the 70's and 80's) to help relieve the Doctor Who withdrawal I'm suffering.
