Which shows that you liked that where cancelled or had ended its run would you bring back for a revival and what changes would you make for that specific show to improve it better or refresh it in order to put your own stamp on it?

I would 100% bring back Ringer. SMG was amazing and the show was completely underrated.
If I were to suggest changes, it would be spending less time on flashbacks and more focus on the present.
And of course Bridget and Siobhan would have to meet!

Jerry Bruckheimer's Chase - excellent cop show that easily deserved another season or two.

Regards

Mark

I thought 'The Chicago Code' was excellent, and deserved more than the single season it got.

Chase was good as well, I enjoyed 'Annie' as a character. Always like shows which aren't based in California or New York...

I enjoyed "Joey" infinitely more than "Friends", I'd be happy to see that back.

Terriers.

Such a great, Under-rated show.

Fox really dropped the ball in cancelling this show, IMO.

Not enough to give back the millions he made from it though I bet. Did he not read the script before? I can't bear actors who hate the stuff they are in when it is panned by fans. If it was still running now would he come out and hate it? Sorry not addressing this spew to you, just to Blancy

Joey was funny whereas Friends was full of mush that blokes dont really want to see, none of the women in friends were funny, Schwimmer dragged alot too, the only thing keeping friends going was Joey and Chandler.

Tru Calling - Season 1 was was very slow and didn't seem like it was going anywhere so can see why they took the decision to axe it, but season 2! wow , such a step up and each episode was amazing, finally started to get somewhere and if what the producers revealed after it finished airing was gonna in future episodes then this show would have got bigger and lasted a good few seasons more!

There are quite a few that I wish hadn't been cancelled when they were.

Studio 60 was a marvellous programme and was funny, smart and though provoking all at the same time.

Surface ended on a cliffhanger and I always wanted to see how it would have continued, plus I though Nim was brilliant.

Tru Calling was just getting interesting when it ended which is a shame because those who had stuck with it was actually beginning to be rewarded.

Sarah Connor Chronicles again another one that was cut off as it was starting to get more interesting.

There are loads more including some mentioned in the thread already.

I'll second all these suggestions.

For last season, Ringer. Loved it!

Anyone remember Reunion? It aired on e4 around 2006. It was about a group of 6 people who have a 20 year reunion and one of them is murdered. Each episode is a flashback telling the story of what happened up until 2006.The last episode that aired was 1997 or 1998 so you never found out what happened.

How many people who work for a company hate things about the way it's run, or decisions made by the bosses? Plenty.

No different to actors who have to act awfully written scripts because it's a job.

I don't see why they're not allowed an opinion.
Of course he wouldn't come out and slate the show publically if it was still running, that would cause him to get the sack.

Plus, whether you got enjoyment out of it or not, there's no denying it was dreadfully made. Cashing in on the success of Friends without any actual effort put in whatsoever.

The Nine Lives of Chloe King and The Secret Circle!

Also I would love for there to be a spinoff of FRIENDS of some sorts but I wouldn't want it to be called FRIENDS because you can't redo that show, it was perfect.

I only recently got into Medium on living tv. Bought some DVDs aswell, love it. Bit sick of seeing them in bed all the time but it's great nonetheless.

Journeyman. I really enjoyed that even though it was just a bit of fluff and thought it deserved more than one season. Kevin McKidd ain't done too badly since then either so it did him no harm.
