Oh yeah that would be good, I thought there were some nebulous plans for it.

Dean Learner's chat show is quite fun though.

Oh a second series of Nathan Barley would be fun.

I too would bring back AD.  I would also bring back Coupling for at least a couple specials, preferably with both Jeff and Oliver (I liked Oliver, sue me), but that's totally unlikely what with Moffat taking over Who (he's a bit busy.) 

I'd also bring back Sifl & Olly.  It's crescent fresh!

Sifl and Olly!!!  Precious Roy! 
You know the problems I've been having with my hookers. 

(And I would also bring back Deadwood.)

CHESTER!!!!!!!!!!!



I was so thinking about starting this exact thread yesterday. Anyway, I would bring back Arrested Development. There are so many shows I have loved that got cancelled too early, but AD is the only one I still mourn on a daily basis.

When Chester sees the bubbles, it never fails to make me laugh.

Can I have my lap dance now?

Damn me for not saying this sooner, but the freakin' Wonder Years!  They so deserved a WAY better ending than they got.  I'd love to have seen how they actually wanted to end it.

No one's said Andy Richter Controls the Universe yet, so I'll say that one.  That was an awesome show.  And even though it just wasn't the same after Phil Hartman died, I think they could have gotten at least one more season out of NewsRadio.

I know it's back-ish, but I'd really like to have 23-episode-per-season doses of Futurama again. :^)

That is on my list. Wow. It slipped my mind. I'm just happy I got a bunch of episodes saved on my Hard Drive. Need a few more. But great show. Loved the one with the Turkey attacking the boys.

Yeah.  As much as I'm enjoying the dvd movies I'm hoping it leads to a full revival of the series.

Can't pick just one, my list:

Brisco County Jr.
Wonderfalls
Firefly

Maybe Enterprise, if they could stay away from the long story arcs, I loved the characters but not the story lines they came up with.

I'll agree with rattrap007, bring back MST3K only if we could still have RiffTrax...

And on the BBC, Coupling, with Jeff (the most funny character on any show, ever, just watch "the man with two legs" QED).

You beat me to it, Marty.  Wonderfalls was a brilliant show that got horribly treated, the box-set came from fan demand, but I felt there was so much more to do with that show.

Wait, here's one I forgot for some reason:

Bring back Dead Like Me! That was a great show (my favorite in the grim reaper genre), and a damn shame it only lasted two seasons. I think some kind of TV movie on it is coming out soon(er or later), but that's not enough.
