I've been watching Survivors on Netflix - and suddenly there are no more episodes! How can that happen?! What happens to Tom? Where is Gregs wife? How can they make a vaccine with no scientists left?

I googled and it's been discontinued. I will never know how it ends now.

What TV shows do you think they should bring back?

Black Books - I used to love that.

ER loved it.

Sex and the City.

Afterlife or Sea of Souls.

Pan Am, I loved the first, and only, series smile

I liked Pan Am too.
Spooks. It got a bit silly towards the end, but I loved it.

Ashes to Ashes

Boy Meets World

The Cosby Show

Roseanne

Noel's House Party blush

Proper old style family shows...you just don't see them anymore, even Saturday mornings aren't the same. I miss SM:TV and even Big Breakfast.

Firefly - fab show.

Burn It - with Lisa Faulkner etc. it was amazing!
Also liked cold feet back in the day.
And this life, the one about the lawyers.

Zen with the lovely Rufus Sewell.

Apparently because the BBC said there was too much crime drama, and yet they bring us shit like Death in Paradise running to several series instead. Zen was great.

Firefly - but joss whedon is probably too in demand and busy to make another series.

MrsBungle Sun 22-Jun-14 13:44:49

Crown court! I loved that show!

Gavin and Stacey.

ThinkIveBeenHacked Sun 22-Jun-14 13:47:22

I opened this thread to say Survivors grin

Friends.....though I doubt it would be as good, still doesnt stop me mourning the loss.

Gavin and Stacey.....I think theres more to tell and more laughs to be had.

Dont Forget Your Toothbrush.....because I was too young to be a contestant last time round and always wanted ti go on it.

Ashes to Ashes was brilliant, I like Spooks too but it did get very over complicated towards the end. I've got as far as series 4 in Lost and don't understand what's going on blush I've got the box set so I will have to give it another go.

Smilesandpiles Sun 22-Jun-14 13:51:38

I loved Anthea Turners housekeeping programme too. Couldn't stand her but loved her tips, most of them I still use.

MmeMorrible Sun 22-Jun-14 13:51:51

Another vote for Survivors here. Also liked the sci-if series about the new colony on another planet that Beeb started and binned after one series leaving lots of unanswered questions (can't remember the name).

Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

I loved that show, but it was expected to be as big as West Wing so they cancelled it when it obviously couldn't match it. Gutted.
