What would YOU bring back?
 
God of Television walks up to you and says you can bring back one cancelled scifi show.
But he's also very cruel, so you can't say Firefly :evil:

What would YOU bring back?

My pick would be in order of preference:
-Odyssey 5
-Threshold
-Journeyman, or Defying Gravity if they drop the stupid soap subplots....

Since it's television I would try and renegotiate the deal. I would get them to accept a revival of the Sunday Mystery Theater concept NBC had in the 70s. They aired ninty minute episodes of rotating series such as Columbo, McCloud, McMillian & Wife and Hec Ramsey.

I would launch my Sci-Fi/Fantasy Theater with a 12 episode run, each episode being a two hour movie. I would provide a new Quantum Leap, Son of Hercules (spin off of Sorbo's series), Surface, and Space: Above and Beyond.

We get four series with eight hours a year. tell stand alone stories or make it a four part story.

It's gold, Syfy should call me now.
lol

I would bring back Space: Above and Beyond in mini-series form to resolve the season one cliffhanger with seeds for a possible season second if it was a ratings success.

I would bring Space Academy, Jason of Star Command and Hypernauts back to Saturday morning teevee. With a bit of judicious updating these could be hits, I think.

Firefly. Everything else I care about concluded nicely. Actually I wouldn't have minded seeing what another season of Charlie Jade would look like.

The only real series recently i've been disappointed in seeing end too early is Stargate Universe. Bring that back for a few more series and i'd be happy enough.

Farscape or GTFO. ;)

Quantum Leap, usin' my own idea for how the series can continue with Sammie Jo Fuller as the Leaper and Scott Bakula as a recurrin' guest star instead of the series star. And at least one appearance by Dean Stockwell.

Maybe even bring in Teri Hatcher to play Donna again...since she's older now.

Space: Above and Beyond (Just cracked open my box set, the other night and watched the Pilot. Haven't seen the show, since it was on TV, and lost track of it before it ended, I just remember really liking what I did see of it).

More Farscape

Crusade. Naturally.

Re: What would YOU bring back?
 
Firefly
Crusade (though the cast are likely too old)
Invasion... maybe.

Buckaroo Banzai in show form. I know there was an attempt in the 80's, but I guess never materialized.

Stargate:Universe
Invasion
Threshold
