    Got into this converstation about a week ago, and all I can wonder is what show someone will bring up that I had forgotten all about. I saw a "Six Million Dollar Man" episode about a month ago, and it reminded me how much I was all in on Steve Austin as a kid (The bionic one, the Stone Cold one wasn't around quite yet.)

    I miss:

    "Heroes". Okay, I missed Heroes after the first season, as it went downhill in a hurry. But that first season was one of the best times I have had as an adult watching escapism TV.

    "Simon & Simon". LOVED that show- can't even find it on reruns.

    "Barney Miller". Just amusing, and still holds up.

    "Lost". Sigh.... Moment of silence please. Pure Awesome on film.

    "Jericho". It only lasted 2 seasons, but I dare anyone to start watching it and not leave wanting more.

    "Eureka". Sy-Fy's best, back when they were still Sci-Fi.

    What do ya'll miss?

    Let me tell you something about sharing: don't do it. Nothing good ever comes of sharing. Your mother and I shared a bed and nothing good came out of it.

    If God had wanted women to bowl, he would have put their breasts on their backs so we would have something to watch while waiting our turn.

    Yep- ME TV is on the area tube. A LOT of old shows on there. But so far they are 60's-70's selections.

    Love the M*A*S*H reruns and the Mary Tyler Moore show. Fun stuff!!

    I liked the first two seasons of Lost. After that it just got worse and worse and worse.

    I love Firefly. Deadwood on HBO was also excellent. Cancelled way too soon, in my opinion. And a year ago I would have put Arrested Development on this list, but they are now in production again! :)

    Modern shows it would be the Wire. Shows from my youth it would be Man from Uncle. I'm a little surprised that no one has tried a reboot of that.

    Ah yeah I liked Lost as well. Also watched that on Netflix ;) It did get weirder and weirder as it went on, but I found myself invested in the characters.

    Firefly, most definitely! Also Flash Forward and the 4400. I know there's more but that's all I can think of at the moment.

    The time traveling gimmick and the "twist" at the end did strain the imagination, but even it's worst seasons were interesting and left you talking.

    trust me- anyone who hasn't seen it and might give it a shot: I gave away nothing. That show was so all over the place .....

    I don't know if I really miss any of my favourite shows. I don't like how some American shows drag on even after they are out of proper stories which causes the show to go out with a whimper. For example I loved House but it's last season or two was just getting silly especially with the cast changes and odd plots.

    With that said...

    I would have probably liked one more season of Arrested Development during it's original run (it didn't have the same magic in the new season that came out on Netflix).

    I got into Star Trek TNG around the last couple of seasons so I wished that had continued on a little longer especially considering how the show was getting stronger towards the end.

    I liked the first two seasons of Lost. After that it just got worse and worse and worse.
    I would say the first season of Lost was one of the best shows I have seen. Second season started off good but then the show went downhill fast. You could tell the writers were just winging it, introducing new mysteries to keep the audience watching while not bothering to finish up previous plot lines.

    I'm surprised no one said Seinfeld. Probably one of the best comedies ever on TV.

    All the other shows mentioned are mostly action based (aside from MASH and MTM). I don't watch many TV shows anymore. Maybe I should try. None really capture my imagination.

    And I am going off the rails here....

    Never liked "Seinfeld". I tried. Everyone else did, I just didn't.
