Police Squad. If this was done after the Naked Gun films it probably would have lasted more than 6 episodes.

Even though it had 10 seasons, I would still like to see Mystery Science Theater 3000 continue to run to this day. there are just so many terrible b-movies out there (transmorphers comes to mind) that it could almost never run-out of episodes to do.

They make RiffTrax, which is the same thing, with the same guys, minus the whole "Stuck on a space station" concept, but hey, it's still pretty much the same.

Yeah Rifftrax is good and all, but It just lacks some of that "magic" that MST3K had.

They also have Cinematic Titanic.

Basically the MST guys who aren't doing RiffTrax with a different set silhouette, playing themselves. I find the few they've done to be more MySTy than RiffTrax.

There was an old show, not sure if anyone remembers, but I wished the early 1990's show ( last from fall of 1990 to spring of 1992 ) called Super Force. Was a scifi futuristic show of a Mars Astronaught turned police officer who used a prototype space suit to get bad guys. Watched that every saturday night.

Plus you can see Tracy Lords in one episode kicking ass. XD

At least CBS listened to Fans enough to resolve the cliffhanger. It would have been nicer had they reacted faster so more than the 7 episode effort (that was doomed regardless) could have been done.

So much more could have been done but oh well, maybe the movie buzz a couple weeks ago pans out but until then....Nuts...

I really miss:
-Boomtown. I thought it was a great television show and had a different spin on the cop genre. So sad to see it go :(
-[img=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilmore_girls]Gilmore Girls[/img]... yeah, I said it.
-Bruce Timm/Paul Dini's DC universe. I know we had several years and got some great cartoons, but we can use some more :) :CON:

My sister used to watch that show, but I could never understand the appeal. I'd be in the "too much" category.
What the--Someone let me publish a book! Check out Not So Superpowered. At 80 pages, it's a quick read. Except for you, Burn. You'll take a week or two.

My friend and I found 3 VHS tapes at The Exchange yesterday for a dollar each, each about 40 minutes long. We didn't watch them yet, but just finding them brought back memories of watching this show growing up.

The Machine was always my favorite.

This just could be me never wanting it to end, but Code Geass ended pretty quickly, and that show was awesome
Shame Lelouche had to die at the end, but IMO it was believable

Also, After War Gundam X, sure the ending was good, but production got cut short.

Last but not least....


INVADER ZIM

that show was amazing, so funny, I never get tired of watching it.
