Gone But Not Forgotten TV Shows!!

Blog Fest


Check this out!

Erinn at the link above is running a blogfest event with a very interesting idea - list your top 5 TV shows that are no longer making new episodes. You can check out the responses of others by clicking on the link above.

Well when I saw that topic ... some favorites of mine just popped right into my mind. I didn't have to think very hard about it. And it may be a symptom of just how bad current TV is now a-days!

Anyway ... I was surprised to find how hard it was to limit my choices to just 5.

Well here they are!!
  1. Buffy, the Vampire Slayer - I sure do miss Spike and Angel. I loved the simplicity of good vs evil in that show. I loved that the good guys could have an evil side - but still look smashingly handsome while drinking blood. I really miss Angel. (Oh, I already said that).
  2. Angel - Thank God David (aka Angel) is still doing TV in the series Bones. Easy on the eyes - that man! Yeah that the Buffy characters sometimes made appearances on that show.
  3. Grey's Anatomy - OK, real medicine is not filled with quite this much drama - but it is way fun to see just how bazaar the writers can get.
  4. As Time Goes By - I love English shows and this one is my favorite.
  5. Night Court - A laugh a minute.
I know only 5 were asked for but I just have to add a few runners' up (sorry, I am just not much of a rule follower.)
  1. Star Trek
  2. West Wing
  3. Monk
  4. Night Stalker
So what are your favorite TV shows that have gone off the air? All I can say is Thank God for Netflix.

  5. Great picks! Isn't Grey's still on though?

    I miss having cable so I could watch a ton of Buffy reruns. I have the DVDs though so I should definitely do a rewatch.

  6. Buffy and Angel, yes. Though I admit I like David Boreanaz with the tanned skin and shining smile from Bones (but I like Spike pale and bleached...yum)!

  7. I still haven't watched Buffy. I really need to get around to that eventually, since I've loved everything else I've seen of Joss Whedon's stuff. And I thought Grey's Anatomy was still going. When did it get cancelled?

  8. You guys are absolutely right. Grey's is still on the air. My error. See I never get to watch it real time ... only through Netflix so I guess I just didn't realize it is still producing episodes.

    Oh well, no matter. I have several alternates listed that are really finished

    Thanks all for visiting my blog.
