TV Nostalgia

I've been feeling a bit nostalgic about some of my favorite TV shows of the past and wishing they were still airing new episodes. A few of my favorites:

Homefront (1991-1993) - Family drama that takes place after WW2 and how the family/town moves on from the war.

Veronica Mars (2004-2007) - Teen sleuth investigates her BFFs murder

Pushing Daisies (2007-2009) - Quirky sleuthing team solves various murders

Party of Five (1994-2000) - Family's struggles after their parents are killed in a car accident

Gilmore Girls (2000-2007) - Relationship between mother and daughter and their eccentric townsfolk

Jericho (2006-2008) - After a nuclear attack, one town learns to band together

Freaks and Geeks (1999-2000) - Two different groups experiences in high school during the 80s

I actually just discovered Freaks and Geeks and I'm loving catching up on all the episodes. I'll be sad when it's over in just a few short episodes.

One thing I've noticed, I watch a lot of shows that seem to get cancelled after just one or two seasons. They are great shows, fun and quirky, or just plain awesome TV but for some reason don't get a huge audience and the TV execs give up on them. Much to the dismay of their fans.

I'm so glad I can catch past episodes of many TV shows on DVD and great sites like Hulu.

What shows do you miss? I'd love to find out if we have the same taste in shows or if there is a show I've been missing and need to go find on Netflix, Youtube, or Hulu.

TWO posts in one week. OMG.

Gilmore Girls was good...although it was good that it ended when it did. They were pushing it at the end, I think.

I'm gonna go check Jericho out now.

We didn't watch much TV when I was younger so there are very few shows I miss...We used to watch Early Edition, that was an odd yet interesting show. And ER. I will always remember watching ER.

Most of those are shows I liked. I also liked Beauty and the Beast. If I think of any others I'll post again. HaHa

Oh yeah, I liked Roswell, Dark Angel and I'm missing 24.

I loved Homefront! Super shame on them for taking it away so soon! Also? I still watch Gilmore Girls. I'll never forgive Amy Sherman-Palladino for what she did to that show.

And I loved Party of 5 as well.
